As for those weight loss plans, all three networks paid attention. NBC's Robert Bazell pointed out that the Harvard School of Public Health conducted the research using funds from the Atkins Foundation. The Atkins Diet was an original low-carbohydrate plan, one of the trio tested. ABC's John McKenzie noted that the low-fat entry was the one endorsed by the American Heart Association. As for the Mediterranean Diet--rich in fish, vegetables and olive oil--CBS' in-house physician Jon LaPook reported that it was superior in controling blood sugar in diabetic dieters. "At the end of the day, if you eat more than you burn, you are losing weight, no matter what your diet is," LaPook concluded. Anchor Katie Couric, who knows about such matters after years on Today, corrected him: "You are gaining weight. Right?" "I mean you are gaining more." "Gain more than you burn." "Right. You are gaining weight. Sorry."
