    Now I don't watch Dr. Oz so had no idea that he'd jumped the fence and was now preaching low carb.
    I was trying to find info on a Dr. Glen Gaesser and his book "Big Fat Lies" but found this instead:

    Apparently this lady does watch Dr. Oz though, and saw a show with Dr. Gaesser debating with droz.

    Did end up finding an interesting hour+ long talk about a study compairing the popular 'fad' diets to the nih recommended diet though. Pretty interesting, only half way through and the group who were given the Atkins diet book to follow lost the most weight (at the 1 year point) and improved all commonly measured health markers more than all other groups, even though they ended up eating higher carbs than Atkins prescribed. Likewise, the group following the ornish diet couldn't maintain the 10% fat that he recommends, but the finished up at a lower fat % than the govt diet.

    Could you provide a quick summary for the YouTube challenged?
    The sign behind Dr. Gaesser says "It's the CALORIES not the carbs."

    As for Dr. Oz, I don't think he's preaching primal low-carb. Here's the most recent blurb on low-carb I could find on Dr. Oz's website (from last September):

    [in protein bars], always look for complex carbohydrates like brown rice and other natural sources like fruit or fruit juices.
    In other words, Dr. Oz is still riding the whole-grain wagon; while primal carbs come from veggies.* I'll believe Dr. Oz truly low carb when he has success with the PERFECT test subject:




    --------------
    *To be honest, I had a bit of an epiphany when I saw Mark's popular "definitive guide to eating primal" post, where under Carbs, there's a picture of colorful vegetables. I thought, Vegetables have carbohydrates? I thought bread had all the carbohydrates... This is quite a revelation to the general public.
    5'0" female, 43 years old. Started Primal October 31, 2011, at a skinny fat 111.5 lbs. Low weight: 99.5 lb on a fast. Current weight: skinny-fat 106.5 lbs because of sugar cheating.

    MY PRIMAL: I (try to) follow by-the-book primal as advocated by Mark Sisson, except for whey powder and a bit of cream. I aim for 80-90 g carb/day and advocate a two-month strict adjustment for newbies. But everybody is different and other need to tweak Primal to their own needs.
