Low-Carb Diet Referenced in BIDMC Study Not Related to Atkins

The carbohydrates fed to rats via "rat chow" in the study are also not reflective of the types of carbohydrates used on Atkins, which consist mainly of high-fiber, nutrient rich vegetables. In addition, these carbohydrates are usually equal to five to 10 percent of total calorie intake in the early weight loss phases of Atkins. Carbohydrate intake in the BIDMC study was pegged to 12 percent. The diet implemented in the study was not the true Atkins Diet.
