"Low-carb diets lead to more weight loss and they improve all the major risk factors for disease… including blood sugar, insulin levels, HDL cholesterol, triglycerides, LDL pattern and blood pressure." - Kris Gunnars, Medical Student, Personal Trainer and Blogger

Studies:

1) "Carbohydrate Restriction has a More Favorable Impact on the Metabolic Syndrome than a Low Fat Diet"

2) "Comparison of the Atkins, Zone, Ornish, and LEARN Diets for Change in Weight and Related Risk Factors Among Overweight Premenopausal Women"

3) "The effect of a low-carbohydrate, ketogenic diet versus a low-glycemic index diet on glycemic control in type 2 diabetes mellitus"
