This Table 3 from the paper:

Subjects were caucasian women 55-65, weight stable, BMI average of 32, sedentary (<20 min exercise twice a week), non-smoking, not on medication, no CHD, diabetes, cancer, liver, renal, or hematologic disease, or other medical disorders. In other words, the healthiest over-weight inactive people they could find. ApoE3/4 n=18, ApoE2/3 or ApoE3/3 n=61.

All women underwent baseline testing before meeting in a weekly group session with a registered dietitian for 10 weeks of instruction in the principles of the AHA Step 1 diet. This diet was composed of 50% to 55% carbohydrate, 15% to 20% protein, 20 to 30 g of fiber and less than 30% fat with less than 300 mg/d cholesterol and 3 g/d sodium. The women were asked to remain sedentary and weight stable and to follow this diet throughout the 10 weeks.

Thanks for that insight, Harrison. I'm intrigued. We're presuming the women were on a SAD diet before switching to a much healthier one- the AHA/Step 1. They showed a slight decrease in HDL-C, but the conversion seemed to have moved from smaller HDL particles to larger particles...very interesting. I would like to have seen an E4+ dataset try a healthful HFLC diet as well for comparison purposes. It also would have been interesting to have started with a group demonstrating some metabolic derrangement.

Stavia, last paper??? I'm very sad, but also extraordinarily grateful for your generosity. Here is G's link. It's an old one, but I can't find full-text: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/12077730
