Continued from page 1

To be fair, there are significant and many research papers that support and argue againstrepparttar low carb revolution, as yetrepparttar 131368 wider medical community has not fully made itís mind up as to whetherrepparttar 131369 diets are something that is favourable inrepparttar 131370 long term.

Recent research by Layman et. al., and Saris have found thatrepparttar 131371 low carb and high protein diets provide little benefit to dieters. Researchers found that when protein was moderately increased and carbohydrates proportionately decreased, insulin levels stabilised but no significant weight was lost. Saris in his review concluded that it is probable that a low carb, high fat diet will increaserepparttar 131372 likelihood of weight gain.

While there is a lot of evidence againstrepparttar 131373 low carb philosophy, there is also a lot of evidence to support it. Research published in May, 2004, found that when patients on a low carb diet were compared with patients on a low fat diet, those patients who had consumed a low carb diet had a greater weight loss, decreased triglyceride levels and increased levels of HDL's - in other words their cholesterol levels had improved. To putrepparttar 131374 icing onrepparttar 131375 cake research has just been published to supportrepparttar 131376 long term efficacy of eating a low carb diet.

Despiterepparttar 131377 evidence to support low carb diet plans, mainstream medicine still does not recommend them. The main points of contention withrepparttar 131378 low carb, high protein diets is that they donít offer balance and variety and could prove dangerous for people at risk of heart disease. Particularly with low carb diet plans such asrepparttar 131379 scarsdale diet, they are not realistic and cannot be maintained inrepparttar 131380 long term causing yo-yo dieting and no one wants that !
