Why High Protein Low Carb Diets May Not Be For You

1. Some experts believe that high protein low carb eating is not sufficiently balanced to be healthy. For some dieters, these diets can be harmful.

2. Some popular high protein diet foods may be high in cholesterol and saturated fat, which are now established as major culprits in heart attacks and strokes.

3. Some high-protein low-carb diets may overload you with protein, which results in loss of calcium from your bones, which may lead to osteoporosis. Protein overload also pressurizes your kidneys as they try to eliminate large amounts of urea, a by-product of protein metabolism.

4. Some high-protein low-carb diets may forbid foods known to lower the risk of heart disease and many cancers.

5. Some high-protein low-carb diets may overly restrict carbohydrates, the nutrient group most readily converted to energy. Even moderately active people will notice this lack during exercise.

6. Some high-protein low-carb diets deprive your brain of glucose, which it needs for normal functioning. The result may be a slowdown in thinking and reaction time.

7. Some high-protein low-carb diets may deprive you of the enormous benefits of fiber, which is a form of carbohydrate (cellulose).

8. Some high-protein low-carb diets may be deficient in essential vitamins. Indeed, some high protein diets even require you to take vitamin supplements for the sake of your health.

9. Some high-protein low-carb diets may cause potentially dangerous changes in your body chemistry.

10. Some high-protein low-carb diets run contrary to the latest World Cancer Research Fund Report, entitled Food, Nutrition and the Prevention of Cancer

11. All high-protein low-carb diets deliver fast weight loss initially. But a large part of it is water weight and lean muscle mass - not fat. (You lose water because your kidneys try to get rid of the excess waste products of protein and fat, called ketones, that your body makes.)

Note: Weight gain is usually rapid when you go off the diet.

12. Are High Protein Low Carb diets working? It seems not. The average US annual consumption of wheatflour has fallen 10 pounds per person, since 1997. Yet obesity rates continue to soar.

The average Western diet contains TOO MUCH FAT - especially animal fat.
That's why an estimated 1 in 3 American children are overweight!!
That's why heart disease is the No 1 killer in America and Europe.
Arguably, we should be eating less fat, not more!
