A new report out by the NDP Group—a provider of food consumption patterns at restaurants and at home—found that despite all the attention low-carb eating is getting, actual carb consumption is higher than expected in the United States.
For an April 5, 2004, report on carbohydrate consumption patterns, the eating patterns of 11,000 people were studied. The report found that none of the 11,000 people were cutting carbs to the degree recommend by low-carb diets.
NPD found that adults who say they are cutting carbs are still eating an average of 128 refined carbs a day, considerably higher than the 20 to 50 grams per day that some low-carb diets recommend to lose weight.
The report also found that, at any given time, about four percent of the U.S population is on a low-carb/high-protein diet-or about 10 million Americans.Other highlights of the NDP report on carbohydrate-consumption patterns
