Yes, its funny - I read the ask the trainer reviews before I saw sharky's post, and I read the same article apparently as you with regards to elliptical machines and bone mass.
I'm leaning towards the elliptical, more time/research needed.

Monday: Running 30 minutes, building it up walk/running program
Tuesday: Swimming 30 minutes, I have a jetstream, it's not a small pool, but it still helps
Wednesday: Running 45 minutes
Thursday: Swimming 30 minutes
Friday: Running 45 minutes
Saterday: Mountainbike (Stevens) for 2 hours or weather permitting my racing bike (Bianchi carbon) 2 hours
Sunday: Resting out
During the day: I have my irons next to my desk. When I'm in a trade or after a trade I feel stressed I push/pull that iron. It works to de-stress. On restaurants I just try to eat less. It's not easy. European restaurants are nothing like American restaurants, here we have 5 to 12 courses meals.
My daily walks with the dog I increased it also longer rounds and I walk faster while doing it.
I'm doing this for 6 weeks now, and I lost 14lbs. I'm back on track and feel fit.
About the foods: When you sport a lot you automatically eat less, it's like your body knows that it needs food but not more than needed because then it has to carry it with you while running.
I have chosen the sports way and for me it's working. Need to start buying new clothes already.
I only chose sports I can do at home. Going to the Gym is such a fuss for me that's not working. I tried that numerous times and after a few times I said: Forget it.
I'm changing, I feel like rambo and people better start calling me it also !!

My diet is based on the Metabolic Diet by Mauro Di Pasquale. It's not ketogenic but it is a low carb, and is a similar macro nutrient breakdown - moderate fat, high protein diet. I'm grossly simplifying but you retrain your body to use fat as fuel. As you progress on the diet and you gradually reduce caloric levels (mostly coming from cutting fat intake), your body utilizes fat stores for energy. During the week, you follow a low carb, high protein, high fat diet (think beef, bacon, sausage, cheese, whole eggs) then the weekend is high carb, moderate protein, low fat.
Any diet can work - ultimately it's all about creating a caloric deficit - if you're looking to lose fat. And sticking with it. What I like about this way of eating is flexibility - you're able to eat a lot of the foods you love. And carb cravings are fulfilled on the weekends plus a social beer or two isn't a disaster for this diet. Most of all, I'm never hungry and I never feel deprived.
I hurt my back a few years ago. It sucks. Found out I have Degenerative Disk Disease. I also get shin splints so I can't do running/jogging for prolonged periods, hah. I sound like such a worn out old man, hah, but I'm only 32. Anyway, the swimming is great. Good workout, good on the back, and invigorating. I try to swim a couple times a week.
Also, don't know if you've already tried this but if not, get an inversion table. I purchased one after I messed up my back and it worked wonders and it's easy to fold up. These days I keep it stored behind the living room couch and when my back acts up, like it does each year after rafting, I take it out and use it and the backpain goes away. It's really great. I use a Teeter. Here's a pic:

When I was a teen I was obsessed with gaining weight since I was so skinny. I tried that diet by Di Pasquale and after a month I felt like I was gonna die, hah. I felt like my insides were rebelling against me. It was horrid. And I grew to hate eating meat for a while. No bueno. Might work for some but for me it just was not happening.
Not sure how long ago you're talking, but he wrote about his original theory in an article called the "fat diet" back in 1988. He believed an anabolic state could be achieved and promote muscle building. But the problem most had was the lack of fiber and fat sources were mostly saturated.
The diet has evolved in the 20 years or so since. It's not a "gain weight" but a lose fat/maintain muscle diet (the greatest obstacle in successful dieting). And it's far from unhealthy. My carbs are low but I'm consuming more veggies (most greens are near zero carbs net of fiber) than the average person, and a significant portion of my fats come from fish oil & flax.
