Losing a few pounds isn't winning the war

June 07, 2004

Re "Low-Carb Dieters Knew It All Along" (May 24): To me, the big news is no news, i.e., if a person weighing 288 pounds loses 11 to 19 pounds on one diet or 7 to 19 pounds on the other, he or she is still very fat!

While a small weight loss can have some effects on blood pressure, lipid and glucose levels, the person needs to engage in serious calorie reduction and exercise increase over several years to attain a normal body mass.
