A lot of people take the "eat tons of fat" message to mean load up on bacon, nuts, eggs, olive oil, etc and don't sweat it as long as the carbs are low. But that's folly because omega 6 and lack of omega 3 is profoundly detrimental to fat loss and more importantly regaining the ability to tolerate carbs and be optimally healthy. Sure cutting out the carbs gets people excellent results in fat loss but without eating the right types of fats it really is only half the picture. Same goes for micronutrients and lifestyle factors. It is wrong to see carb restriction as a panacea, although i would argue that it is best if overweight people keep carbs below 50g a day, at least for the first few months.
