Study suggests a potentially unfavourable association of low carbohydrate diet with overall and cause-specific mortality

Some issues with this observational study…

Quoting from Miles Spencer Kimball:

“Note that Model 2 goes even further in this direction, by controlling for body mass index, which thereby insures that any benefit of a low-carb diet that operates through weight loss is sliced out. And without other analyses, that means that effects of low-carb diets that operate through reducing appetite and through weight loss are ignored.”

A short term ketogenic diet might be a savour for obese and overweight people
