Changing the overall scope of your diet is often a necessity if you want to lose weight and switching to a low carb diet has been one of the most popular options for weight loss during recent years. Switching from a high carb diet to a low carb diet and focusing on the types of carbs that you consume can be a good way to get your weight in check, but a recent released study reveals that you may need to look beyond just your carbohydrate consumption if you want to be as healthy as possible.
The study followed well over one hundred thousand subjects for a period of at least twenty years has shown that eating a low carb diet that focuses on vegetable base proteins and fats may be healthier than one that focuses on animal based proteins and fats. According to researchers, subjects whose diets consisted mainly of animal based proteins and fats were at a greater risk of both heart and cancer related deaths than subjects whose diets consisted of primarily vegetable based proteins and fats.
While researchers admit that the study is far from complete and that much more information would need to be obtained to be able to make legitimate claims as to the effectiveness or safety of any variety of low carbohydrate diets, the study does seem to give another good reason to load up on fresh fruits and vegetables.
Achieving and maintaining a healthy weight is a key factor in overall health, consult your doctor or health aide if you need suggestions on how to properly construct a healthy diet that will help you lose weight. Your health aide can also help to give you suggestions for a regular exercise routine to help you achieve your health and weight loss goals as quickly and safely as possible.
