slashdot brings up the weight loss card and the Stanford researchers review efficacy and safety of low-carbohydrate diets which hits the weight management on the head
While these diets are effective in the short term, weight loss results from reduced calories, not carbohydrate restriction. Removing carbs is just one way to remove calories. The study was short term, 90 days or less. I would really like to see something long term on what is really a healthy diet for humans now that we live longer than a handful of decades.
One of the comments had a link to The 5BX Plan For Physical Fitness which was something the wrestling teamin highschool followed.
