So this was published a few days ago, so sorry if people have already talked about it, but Gary Taubes discusses a recent clinical trial by Dr. David Ludwig of Boston Children’s Hospital which showed that people naturally burned more calories per day on a very-low carb diet than they did on low-fat or low glycemic index diets (it also did better than very-low carb Atkins diets).

Pretty interesting. Nice to see some non-CW studies getting discussed more mainstream.
