This is Table 2 which shows the macros for what the women ate. (I posted only the AVERAGE, full stats are in the article.)
Daily dietary intakes of 43 396 women in Swedish Women’s Lifestyle and Health Cohort
Energy: 6534 kcal
Carbohydrates: 196.6 g
Protein: 62.9 g
Vegetable: 20.6 g
Total lipids: 54.7 g
Saturated lipids: 24.7 g
Unsaturated lipids: 25.8 g
Calories are wrong. They add up to about ~1550.
In the context of PB, I see three problems in the macros:
1. Fully 1/3 of the protein is veggie; probably soy. That will affect cardio health as much as carbs.
2. Half of the fat is unsaturated. What was it... margerine?
3. When your average carbs are ~200, then you're already endangering cardio health. Plus or minus 10% isn't going to matter.
My theory is that this study is just fluctuations in CW and therefore isn't all that meaningful.

Co-worker 1: Needs to lose ~50. Now he wants to start Mayo Clinic Diet. Yeesh. Give it up, man.
Co-worker 2: Needed to lose ~55. Lost 20 from stress. Started Primal in Sept, lost 20 more, but gained 10 back on a carb spree. We're working on it.
