High-Fat Diet

See your doctor before starting one

(HealthDayNews) -- Many people swear by high-fat, low-carbohydrate diets. While some studies have shown Atkins-like diets lead to weight loss and don't cause significant health issues, the jury is still out, experts say.

Meanwhile, the Berkeley Wellness Letter suggests that if you're considering going on a high-fat diet, you should first get checked by your doctor. Then you should be monitored periodically, particularly for kidney function.
