You only give me your funny paper

A letter in The Economist magazine

"SIR – Last week in Mumbai, reading about the scientific evidence supporting the high-fat/low-carbohydrate Atkins diet, I noted that the only obese Indians there are visiting from America. The extremely thin and lean Indians thrive on what could be termed a “reverse” Atkins diet: rice, wheat, vegetables, nuts, fruits, a little chicken and fish—lots of carbs and not a gram of fat. Adhering to such a regimen for seven days, and drinking beer freely, I lost six pounds."
