Dalando's 3 Year Diet Diary 2002-2005

In July 2002 a record began in an attempt to learn how dieting can be made effective. Initially research centered around conventional low-fat techniques and some of the more radical approaches. Eventually an Atkins-style low-carbohydrate approach proved effective. Unfortunately this resulted in a substantial increase afterwards.
