(I would like to stop writing about this subject, but the number of people trapped in this deadly dietary foolishness increases by thousands everyday. See below a summary of my articles on Atkins and high protein diets.)

I have a friend who went on the Atkins Diet a very high fat, high cholesterol diet and his cholesterol dropped 50 points. So, this is solid evidence that Dr. McDougall and other medical experts have things all backwards. Obviously this low-carbohydrate diet is a healthy diet. So, I hear all too often.

My answer: Risk factors, like cholesterol, improve because these dieters eat so much less food because they are sick from the Atkins diet. A recent study of children proves when dieters are forced to eat enough of all those high-fat, high-protein, low-carbohydrate foods (meat, poultry, fish, eggs, etc.) to fulfill their daily calorie needs, their risk factors for, and their actual risks of, premature death worsens.
