After a lifetime of not weighing what I wanted, the idea that I can choose my weight is a stupendous dream for my mind to grasp. All along I've been hopeful, but not daring to believe in it, until it becomes real and lasting.  But now I live with feeling happiness with my body, and that feeling is a priceless gift. -- Heidi 555

LA Times: Study finds: animal-based low carb diet=higher mortality,higher cancer

LA Times article on Low Carb Diet:

http://www.latimes.com/health/boostershots/la-heb-low-carb-20100906,0,5087771.story

On a low-carb diet? You may live longer if you make it vegetable-based

Low-carb diets that are vegetable-based may lead to a longer life (David Karp For The Times)

     

If you're thinking of jumping on the low-carb diet bandwagon or have already jumped, consider this: new research findings reveal that vegetable-based low-carb diets may be linked with lower overall mortality rates and lower death rates from cardiovascular disease and cancer.

The study used data from the Nurses' Health study and included 85,168 women age 34 to 59 and 44,548 men age 40 to 75 who were on low-carb diets that derived protein from animal or plant sources. The women were followed from 1980 to to 2006, and the men from 1986 to 2006. In those years 12,555 of the participants died.

Among those who ate an animal-based diet, researchers noted a slight but statistically significant higher overall mortality risk. An animal-based diet was also linked with higher risk of death from cancer. A vegetable-based diet was associated with a lower mortality rate and a lower risk of death due to cardiovascular disease.

The authors believe that the link between cardiovascular death in vegetable-based diets may be attributed to benefits from eating more unsaturated fats, dietary fiber and micronutrients, vitamins and minerals and phytochemicals.

In the end, protein sources may make a difference. In the study, they wrote, "Low-carbohydrate diets from animal and vegetable sources may have similar major macronutrient content, but the source of the macronutrients can result in large differences in dietary components that may affect mortality, such as specific fatty acids, protein, fiber, vitamins and minerals, and phytochemicals. Therefore, the associations that we observed are more likely to be mediated by these bioactive components rather the carbohydrate content."

The study was released Monday in the journal Annals of Internal Medicine.

CNN: Animal-based protein diets increase mortality rate

CNN: Animal-based protein diets increase mortality rate:


http://pagingdrgupta.blogs.cnn.com/2010/09/06/animal-based-protein-diets-increase-mortality-rate/

"Animal-based proteins and fats are associated with increased mortality rates, including increased cardiovascular mortality and increased cancer mortality, a new study published in the Annals of Internal Medicine concludes. But low-carbohydrate, high-protein diets composed mostly of plant-based proteins and fats were associated with lower mortality rates overall and lower cardiovascular mortality rates."

When I started low carbing in January 2007, the 2002 version of Atkins was considered the bible of low carb dieting. However, even among those who proclaimed you HAD to follow that version by the book, they were using the latest Atkins Nutritionals’ (ANA) recommendations to override the book’s instructions.

This gentleman keeps a blog in which he daily cites a scientific study generally published in a peer reviewed medical journal that relate to low carb diets, saturated fats, cholesterol,  as well as things like the use of statins, etc.  Very interesting.  I think he also recently published a book that included many of these...http://healthydietsandscience.blogspot.com/  If I remember correctly he also includes the links for the studies that are cited above, with the complete experiment, the researchers came to different conclusions than the reporters did.

Is that a healthy diet? Eating nothing but beef and water only seems that you'll be lack of nutrients. How about the other nutrients of your body? Am I right?
