Now, even I am a little cautious about this one, but apparently, University of California researchers have found that a low-fat, high-fiber diet combined with an hour of walking a day not only caused participants to lose weight, but dramatically improved their health. In just three weeks, their blood pressure dropped, so did their cholesterol, and insulin levels were almost cut in half. That last fact is particularly noteworthy for low-carb zealots, given what the subjects were eating: While there's no mention of meat, "they could eat all the whole-meal bread, pasta, fruit and vegetables they wanted." That's right - they said "pasta." Go figure.
