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

Atkins believes the study results reflect a diet that is too high in protein and too low in fat and which does not match the suggested macronutrient levels of the Atkins Diet. 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.

Furthermore, the BIDMC study was conducted on mice, not humans. Several well-respected studies using humans as subjects ha
