A step in the right direction

So the NNR (Nordic Nutrition Recommendations) of 2012 contains a very positive change in the area of the recommended amount of carbs and fat in your diet. After going through the modern research they came to the conclusion (that low carbers have been claiming for years) that there is no scientific support saying that less fat has any positive effect on your health and weight loss, neither does a high amount of carbs. Therefor the result is that they completely removed the recommended amounts of these nutrients, so there is no maximum limit for fat and no minimum amount of carbohydrates anymore.
