Letter to National Academy

Project Title: Review of the Process to Update the Dietary Guidelines for Americans

I recently reviewed the UP TO DATE chapter on Low Carbohydrate diet.

 I was surprised to see Meta-analysis data misrepresented.

Dr. Bonnie Brehm's 2 year head to head trial and Shai's 2 year head to head trials showed LCHF diet had better weight loss results than low fat diet. 
These long term trials are very important .

I am certified by the American Board of Obesity Medicine.
 I am shocked to see the latest text(2016) of Nutrition Concepts and Controversies state on p 136:
"several times this minimum (130 grams CHO/d) is recommended to maintain health and glycogen stores."

Insulin resistance is a major consideration in treating obesity and metabolic syndrome.
 It should always be a footnote in these discussions just as
LDL particle number or apoB or non-HDL cholesterol level must replace the old LDLc data because of the discordance that occurs between particle data and calculated LDLc.

Please choose  Obesity clinicians and Lipidologists who understand the new science of obesity.
