Arguments over diet all boil down to single question: what’s the best way to eat if you want to stay a healthy weight and lower your risk of various chronic disorders? That’s what is fueling the long running diet war between an embattled low-fat establishment – see latest attack on low fat dogma by top American cardiologist – and the low carb/high fat rebels.
This long running war of words backed up by salvoes of scientific references can get pretty confusing for civilians who often have to make important life-style decisions based on the way they interpret the endless skirmishes.
That’s why HealthInsightUK has published a new post by low carb expert Hanna Sutter about the decision by Diabetes UK to give £2.5million (the largest research grant ever made by the charity) to fund a 5-year study into the possibility of reversing type 2 diabetes with a Very Low Calorie Diet (VLCD) . A diet based on calorie counting.
Hanna thinks it is a really bad idea and makes a strong case for why eating low carbs makes a lot more sense. Find out why .
