Best diet depends on desired reults

Researchers from Israel and the Harvard School of Public Health compared low-fat, low-carbohydrate and Mediterranean style diets.

They found that low-carb dieters lost the most weight and had the greatest improvement in cholesterol. Those on a Mediterranean diet had the most improvement in blood sugar levels, suggesting it may be best for people with diabetes.

All three diets improved patients' overall health.
