La Puma: low carb when on meds?

Dear Dr. La Pluma:

I realize that the low carb diet is a bit faddish at the moment and has hyper-politicized the food pyramid, but I have noticed, both anecdotally and in the press, that in fact it does seem to help people lose weight and gain related health benefits.
And so I wanted to ask you your opinion on this matter:
Given that many of us on this site have struggled with our weight - both apart from our meds but especially on them - and given the fact that in an above message you mentioned that a number of psychotropic meds "are associated with potential changes in glucose regulation" I would think it is safe to assume that adhering to a low carb (aka: diabetic) diet is the smartest course of action to combat med-related weight gain. Would you agree?

Granted, one would probably want to eat more of the fish fats rather than the copius bacon called for in the Atkins induction-diet..... Still, such a modified diet is easier to handle than having to change meds because of weight gain!!!
