Study: 15 % of Finnish adult population follows low-carbohydrate diet
According to annual Finnish health survey called "Health Behaviour and Health among the Finnish Adult Population", 13,4 % of all adult males and 16,4 % of all adult women followed low-carbohydrate diet in 2011. This was the third most popular choice of the studied diets after low-fat diet and lactose-free diet. However at the same time 60 % of the adult male and 44 % adult women population were overweighted (BMI >25 kg/mē). This is the first time the study included diet preferences.
You can see the distribution of diets on Table 123a on page 160 of the study.

Awesome. You have a great country there. This shows what a well educated population can be like. I'm sure this percentage will only increase. In fact I wish our (U.S.) social policies were more like yours.
Sweet. I stay low carb too.

Yeah, they keep trying, don't they? Dodgily interpreted observational studies ... as if we haven't seen enough of those.
