I’m sure Atkins Nutritionals aren’t thrilled with this news – but that’s OK with me. Reuters Health reports that to lose weight and keep it off, eat a big breakfast packed with carbohydrates and protein. (Did you know that oatmeal is 11% protein?)

The “big breakfast” diet works, researchers say, because it controls appetite and satisfies cravings for sweets and starches. It’s also healthier than popular low-carb diets because it allows people to eat more fiber– and vitamin-rich fruit, according to Dr. Daniela Jakubowicz, of the Hospital de Clinicas in Caracas, Venezuela.

“Most weight loss studies have determined that a very low carbohydrate diet is not a good method to reduce weight,” Jakubowicz noted in a written statement issued by the Endocrine Society. “It exacerbates the craving for carbohydrates and slows metabolism. As a result, after a short period of weight loss, there is a quick return to obesity.”

Want more evidence about the importance of a low fat and high carbohydrate diet? Then go to Dr. John McDougall‘s McDougall Health Center and to the Physician’s Committee For Responsible Medicine (PCRM) for additional scientific information and I highly recommend Dr. McDougall’s Total Health Solution for the 21st Century and Dr. Neal Barnard‘s Breaking The Food Seduction.
