Swedish Government Is Convinced: An Atkins-Type Diet Is Healthier

October 23, 2013: 12:00 AM EST
A meta-review of relevant clinical studies has prompted the Swedish government to recommend a lower-carb, higher-fat, and higher-protein diet – basically the Atkins approach to healthy eating. The study found that a carbohydrate-managed approach is more effective for long-term weight loss and maintenance than a conventional low-fat diet. It also showed that low-carbohydrate diets were both beneficial and safe for the highly-insulin resistant, carbohydrate-intolerant population, who need to keep carbohydrate consumption low over the long-term. The Atkins Diet offers a balanced plan that comprises lean protein, good carbs from fruits and vegetables, and a balance of healthy fats.
