Default Which Diet Works?

I just happened to come across this article today and I found it interesting, so I'd thought I'd share it here...

http://opinionator.blogs.nytimes.com...?smid=pl-share

Let me just say that I had the pleasure of meeting and working with Mark and I found him to possess a level of integrity and authenticity in his approach to food that I truly respected... even though I didn't always agree with his philosophical leanings...

What I find valuable in the piece is that he opens up a discourse that challenges the reader to not only think about what works, but also why it works...

I really believe it is individual. He says Atkins got the best results, I haven't tried it yet.
Maybe it's time for a new start.

The article talks about the Atkins diet getting slightly better results in the short term, but that it was not without its problems... and that a low glycemic approach was probably better in the long term from my understanding of the article... I'm not a stong proponent of either approach really... I too believe that it is highly individual and people need to figure out for themselves what works best for them...

Here's another NYT article which refers to it and basically says "a calorie IS a calorie" in terms of weight loss - but obviously eating healthy is better for your health.

Interesting that article is written by Gina Kolata... I've heard that she and Gary Taubes had a bit of feud going on at the NYTimes...
