Yo-Yo Dieting

You might want to put down those pork rinds.

A new study appearing in today's issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association found that, contrary to the apocalyptic pronouncements of the late Dr. Atkins and his ilk, there can be significant weight loss benefits from a low-fat, high-carb diet.

Perhaps this will prompt some dieters to trade in their halitosis and dangerously high cholesterol levels in favor of a few more trips to the Olive Garden. Anything to avoid the only formula for weight loss that really works: eat less, exercise more. It just goes to show, fads may come and go, but fat is here to stay.
