Error in "Methods" Section in: The Effect of a Plant-Based Low-Carbohydrate ("Eco-Atkins") Diet on Body Weight and Blood Lipid Concentrations in Hyperlipidemic Subjects

Arch Intern Med. 2009;169(16):1490. doi:10.1001/archinternmed.2009.257

Error in “Methods” Section. In the article titled “The Effect of a Plant-Based Low-Carbohydrate (‘Eco-Atkins’) Diet on Body Weight and Blood Lipid Concentrations in Hyperlipidemic Subjects” by Jenkins et al, published in the June 8 issue of the Archives (2009;169[11]:1046-1054), the description of the bread in the “Diets” subsection of the “Methods” section on page 1048 (first 2 sentences, right column) should have read as follows: “The low-carbohydrate diet featured viscous fiber–containing foods, including oats and barley, for the relatively limited amount of carbohydrates allowed, and the production of a ‘no starch’ high-protein bread made from ground almonds, hazelnuts, and wheat gluten. The bread also contained a small amount of psyllium (mean intake, 1.1 g/d), which would contribute additional viscous fiber to the diet.”
