I will check on PubMed for this article, but am pleased to hear that this positive result is being obtained. I suspect that the diet used was what I would call a 'modified' Atkins diet (i.e. all the protein is as low in fat and saturated fat as possible). One must keep in mind that weight loss per se will cause a drop in cholesterol and bp, and there is no doubt that a high-protein diet can cause weight loss, but other weight loss diets can also achieve the same result and are possibly more sustainable in the long-term.
