Fatty McAtkins, Again 

There's plenty of debate about the Atkins Diet, and low-carbing in general. One thing that is becoming clear, however, is that what kind of carbs we eat is important. A study to be released in tomorrow's Lancet details the differences found in rats given a diet containing low versus high glycemic index (GI) carbohydrates. It turns out, much to the surprise of the medical establishment, that the high-GI rats ended up much worse off. They were fatter, had the high-risk "apple" body shape, and their triglyceride levels were triple those of the low-GI group.

So it seems we don't need to worry about no-carb or low-carb, but instead about GI. I can live with that.
