Something you might not know! Diets low in carbohydrates are not safe…
OUR STORIES Nov 08, 2019
According to the most recent scientific research!
Though low carbohydrates diets such as Keto, Paleo and Atkins are very popular and widely accepted as the most simple, easiest and fasted way to lose weight, an increasing amount of relevant scientific evidence shows their harmful health effects far outweigh the benefits!
What is presented to most dieters as important information is passing discomfort (flu symptoms, fatigue, confusion, bad breath, instability, irritability, muscle aches, and pains) after which the “right things“ and the benefits which everyone wants and waits for quickly come. These are primarily decreased appetite, the arrival of new energy, the better quality of sleep reduced levels of bad fats in the blood and increased levels of good fats, better regulation of blood sugar, along with quick weight loss and the return of a slim figure which is everyone’s most important goal.
Until recently, there has not been serious research on the long-term effects of these diets on the health of the individual. Because of this, there have been many concerns and controversies about the topic. However, recent information indicates that these “must be avoided“ and that if not in the short term, it surely is not wise to stick with these in the long term.
Particularly concerning are the results from the most recent study which included 24,825 participants who were on the Keto diet or some other low-carb diet and whose health was monitored for 6.4 years. Compared with the control group which consumed more carbohydrates, participants who consumed fewer carbohydrates were 32% more likely to die prematurely, while the risk of coronary heart disease, cerebrovascular disease, and cancer was increased by 51%, 50%, and 35% respectively for each diagnosis.
The same results are confirmed in “meta-analysis“ in the health condition of 447,506 participants which were followed for 15.6 years.
When compared with individuals on diets rich in carbohydrates, those on low-carb diets have a slightly greater risk for premature death (15%), cardiovascular disease (13%) and cancers (8%).
Such findings are primarily interpreted as the negative health effects of animal protein, specifically red meat and meat products, but also the deficit of minerals, vitamins and natural ingredients which are found primarily in fruit and vegetables rich in fiber and carbohydrates.
One small conclusion would be that simple and quick answers in life don’t exist! Before every decision to begin down the path toward weight loss, one needs to keep in mind that weight loss must not be the only goal. Changing dietary habits is important but certainly not the only and most important item. Without integrating many different positive life changes and regular physical activity, this road is doomed to failure.
