High Protein, Low Carb Diets
Is a Low-Carb Diet Right for Me?
These theories of weight loss remain unproven, and most experts are concerned that high-protein, low-carb diets can cause a host of problems, particularly for the large segment of the population that is at risk for heart disease. What's more, the plan doesn't permit a high intake of fruits and vegetables, recommended by most nutrition experts because of the numerous documented health benefits from these foods.
The experts say to achieve permanent weight loss you must change your lifestyle. This means following a lower calorie diet that includes grains, legumes, fruits, and vegetables combined with participating in regular physical activity.
Before starting this or any diet, be sure to talk with your doctor to determine what approach is right for you.
