  CNN.com - Food Central - Federal diet study: Eat less to lose weight - January 10, 2001
Patterson and her colleagues at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle, Washington, had done a "diet backlash" study which was published in the Journal of the American Dietetic Association.
Diets studied included high-fat and protein, low-carbohydrate; moderate-fat and low- and very low-fat models, which ranged from as high as 65 percent total calories from fat to less than 10 percent.
High-protein diets that are low in carbohydrates can result in a condition called ketosis, which may lead to a significant increase in blood uric acid concentrations.

The whole efforts of the elector and his minister were directed to nullifying the constitutional control vested in the diet; and the Opposition was fought by manipulating the elections, packing the judicial bench, and a vexatious and petty persecution of political 'suspects', and this policy continued after the retirement of Hassenpflug in 1837.
In March 1852 the federal diet abolished the constitution of 1831, together with the reforms of 1848, and in April issued a new provisional constitution.
The new diet had under this, very narrow powers; and the elector was free to carry out his policy of amassing money, forbidding the construction of railways and manufactories, and imposing strict orthodoxy on churches and schools.
