“Banned Food” BOOSTS Heart Health
Uncle Sam has it wrong again
Sometimes you just have to say “I told you so.”
And when it comes to dietary advice dished out by the government, I find myself saying those four words pretty often.
This time, it’s about a food that the “Powers That Be” have been demonizing for decades.
As it turns out, they were dead wrong.
The MORE you eat of this banned food, the better your heart health.
Experts have been warning against low-carb, high-fat diets for decades.
It’ll increase your risk of heart disease, they say.
It’ll send your cholesterol levels through the roof, they say.
In fact, the more unsaturated fats you eat, the better your heart health.
Take a look at this study just published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition. It included 164 overweight people who did not have diabetes or heart disease.
They were assigned to one of three diets:
- Low-carb diet (20 percent of daily calories came from carbs)
- Moderate carb diet (40 percent carbs)
- High-carb diet (60 percent carbs)
Those following the low-carb diet saw significant improvements in their insulin resistance, which is a key factor in the risk of type 2 diabetes.
They also saw improvements in measures of heart health such as cholesterol, triglycerides, and blood pressure.
But here’s the crazy part… those in the low-carb group consumed 21 percent of their daily calories from fat — and they still experienced improvements in critical measures of heart health.
The researchers are suggesting that the benefits of eating low-carb could cancel out the risks of the high-fat. Well, they’re partly right.
The truth is that low-carb and high-fat are both FANTASTIC for your heart health!
In fact, unsaturated fats like fish and olive oil have consistently been linked to a lower risk of chronic diseases like heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and even cognitive decline.
If you’ll recall, it wasn’t that long ago that high-carb foods like bread, cereal, rice, and pasta made up the base of the government’s food pyramid — at 6-11 servings per day!
Meanwhile, key foods like meat, fish, beans, eggs, and nuts hovered closer to the top, with warnings to limit servings to 2-3 per day.
Health organizations are finally starting to come around, thanks to studies like this one.
But they’ve still got a long way to go.
Don’t look to the government for health advice.
Stick with the science… and stick with me.
I’m not afraid to go against the grain — even if it means getting called a quack.
Trust me, I’ve been called worse.
