New study: Does an LCHF diet provide adequate nutrition?

A new study in the BMJ has found that a low-carbohydrate, high-fat (LCHF) diet can provide adequate nutrition.

Their conclusion?

A well-planned LCHF meal plan can be considered micronutrient replete.

Once again, a common low carb myth is dispelled by science. Read the full article here:
