DENVER, July 2, 2012 -- /PRNewswire/ -- A recent study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) shows that dieters who had successfully lost weight and were trying to maintain their weight loss burned significantly more calories eating a low-carb diet modeled after the Atkins Diet than they did eating a low-fat diet. In fact, participants following the Atkins-like diet in the study burned about 300 calories more a day on a low-carb diet than they did on a low-fat diet. Additionally, there were several key health benefits experienced by those following the Atkins-like diet, including increased HDL, lowered triglycerides, reduced inflammation from baseline, and improved insulin sensitivity.
The study examined 21 participants, ages 18 to 40, who had lost some initial body weight and each participant completed three different diets in random order for four weeks. One of the diets followed was modeled on the Atkins Phase 1 Induction diet, with only 10 percent of calories from carbohydrates, 60 percent from fat and 30 percent from protein.
According to the researchers, "These findings suggest that a strategy to reduce glycemic load rather than dietary fat may be advantageous for weight-loss maintenance and cardiovascular disease prevention."

I have been eating chocolate pudding and flan almost every night also, so no induction stuff for me.
Do what works, experiment with it and see if you can make it work better.
