I've seen this before, but re-watched it. I can understand that scientists would want to understand why it works, but for most people it is enough that it DOES work. Furthermore, while low fat works about the same in a lab, it doesn't work the same in real life.
People on low carb can continue to eat properly, and low fat people are getting heavier, and sicker. In real life, the difference is much greater than it was in a lab. The fact that I could lose weight in a lab, being fed the right foods is only comforting, if my goal is to live in a lab, and be fed tidbits of food, like a trained seal.
You want a real study? Ask 100 people to follow each of the 2 diets, and tell them there will be a weigh in at the end.Let them eat anything they want to. See who can stick to it, and lose the most weight. I guarantee the low carb group loses 3X what the low fat one does.
