New trial shows benefits of low carbohydrate diet

A new trial indicates that a low carbohydrate diet may improved the cholesterol level in obese people. It also indicates that the low carbohydrate diet may reduce inflammation and hence reduce heart disease risk. This diet appears more effective than a low fat diet. However, there are concerns that those with cholesterol levels increased in people on the low carbohydrate diet if they already had low or normal cholesterol levels.
