The Low Carb Diet Dangers

The case against reduced carbohydrate diets

Its all the rage, but it is truly safe and healthy for you?

What follows are a few salient points to help you make up your mind.

Although there is some research that illustrates that reduced carb diets may help eliminate fat, some of this strong evidence has resulted in much debate among nutritionists, and their safety record has been brought into question.

Most of the bad side-effects reported, like general tiredness, bowel disorders, or headaches are only temporary, but critics contend that low carbohydrate diets are not without serious long term side effects.

Reducing carbohydrates may mean missing out on required nutrients from ‘good’ carbohydrate foods which must be part of any sensible diet, specifically those obtained from vegetables, fruits and grains.

Eating more animal-based products might lead into elevated consumption of saturated fat and cholesterol, which most authorities believe will increase the risk of coronary disease.

Scientific studies over the years have proved that eating excess animal fats can cause higher chance of cancer, heart conditions and other inflammatory disorders.

Moreover, it has been hypothesised that the kidneys may come under too much strain and that the related change in blood acidity levels causes bone damage, but some of the scientific research trying to test the hypothesis have struggled to find any evidence of deterioration of the kidneys or bone damage.

Finally, one point that is often overlooked, it is extremely hard (though certainly not impossible) for vegetarians to follow a reduced carbohydrate diet.

We hope that has been informative, and good luck with your weight loss and wellness objectives.
