I wanted to collect my thoughts on the study released earlier in the week by @KevinH_PhD. It turned into this blog-sized thread.

The study compared a high-carb, plant-based diet to a low-carb, omnivorous diet in a 4 wk. cross-over study.

The results created quite a stir.

1/
Participants were randomly assigned to a plant-based diet or low-carb diet for two weeks. They then switched to the other diet for the following two weeks.

Both groups lost weight but participants on the plant-based diet ate less and lost more fat, despite higher insulin.

2/
This triggered some to question whether the carb-insulin model was dead. CICO enthusiasts took a few victory laps, bashing low-carbers as foolishly fixated on carbs and beyond reason.
