low-carbs diet study

The Atkin's diet is huge at Sig School. But does it really work? Business Week reports that a new study finds that low calories are more important than low carbs.

"The findings suggest that if you want to lose weight, you should eat fewer calories and do so over a long time period," says Bravata.
