A study from researchers at the University of Copenhagen published in the New England Journal of Medicine found that: if you want to lose weight and keep it off, you need to cut out refined starches -- that is, all the white stuff (breads, rice, cakes, etc.) -- and stick to a diet that is high in proteins, including lean meats and beans.

The researchers looked at a total of 772 families, comprising 938 adult family members and 827 children, making this one of the world’s largest controlled studies. The overweight adults followed an 800-calorie-per-day diet for the first eight weeks, losing an average of 24 pounds. They were then randomly assigned to one of five different low-fat diets, which they followed for six months to test which was most effective at preventing weight regain. What worked best for keeping the weight off was a high-protein, low glycemic index (GI) diet.

(According to the study definition, GI is “a measure of the ability of carbohydrates to increase blood glucose levels when absorbed in the body. Food with a low glycemic index causes blood glucose levels to increase more slowly and to lower levels compared to high-carbohydrate foods with a high glycemic index.”) Based on this study and the new Gary Taubes book, Why We Get Fat, it seems that carbs are the enemy again.
