Based on the John Robbins work titled: Diet for a New America, the number of people in the US suffering from diseases caused by protein excess is a mind-boggling 40, 000, 000 compared to a measly 3 people suffering from the deficiency of this substance. Judging from these, it may be time to revise the misinforming ideas on protein in our diets. Let’s consider some factors on why a Low Carbohydrate Diet may be unnecessary and even detrimental to one’s health.
Definitely cutting back on the ‘wrong’ kinds of Carbohydrates such as Cakes, Confectioneries, Bread, Polished rice and the like will be mandatory for weight-loss, but replacing them with high protein foods is- just as from the points above-unnecessary and actually harmful for overall health and fitness. At the conclusion of the four month trial, researchers found that the two carbohydrate restricted conditions led to greater weight loss and fat loss (both groups lost an average of ~9 lbs vs.
Now to be fair, this is just the summary report from a conference presentation so I can’t exactly go through the methodology to see what kind of diets the two low-carb groups were following the other 5 days of the week.
Frankly, I wouldn’t be surprised if the participants in those two intermittent low carbohydrate groups actually ate fairly low carb for more than just those two days a week. But in any case, the important thing to note here is once again, we see evidence of superior body composition results as well as health outcomes when you consciously reduce (*note I did not say eliminate) the amount of carbohydrate you consume in your diet. Incorporating a few deliberate low-carbohydrate days into your regular routine can also be a fantastic way to avoid gaining a whack load of weight through the Holiday season, which is fast approaching.
A two year, $4 million  studyof 307 people, purporting to compare low carb to low fat diets has been completed, apparently showing similar weight loss after two years, but improved blood lipids for people who followed the low carbohydrate diet. The low carb diet went for 12 weeks, after which people were encouraged to add 5 grams of carbohydrates daily for a week, increasing carbohydrates until their weight stabilized. The low calorie diet went on for 2 years.  So a short term diet was compared to a long term diet. No one looked at actual food intake.  Yep, a diet study with no data on what people actually ate eventhough they kept food diaries. And data from dropouts was extrapolated and included, or as the rest of us call it, the data was made up. So they did not use real outcomes for the noncompliers or even assume that the real outcomes on the others would apply.  They extrapolated them based upon a model that significantly understates the difference between the two groups.

Now if you are on a low carbohydrate diet for 12 weeks months, and then transition to a higher carbohydrate diet, with no outer level specified, then you are off of the low carbohydrate diet  at 100 g daily  by week 28 (or 6 months )and on a high carbohydrate diet of over 150 grams ten weeks after that.
A better design would probably had the induction diet for two weeks, followed by a 60-80gram low carbohydrate diet for the entire period.  This is the methodology used in the Atkins diet books which the researchers claim they were using. Ketones are normal byproducts of burning fat which are water (blood) soluble.  These blood-soluble  fats are a source of energy for tissues including the muscles, brain and heart.

Is there a link between a low carb diet and diabetes? Carbs are a great source of energy for the body. When we eat carbs, they are broken down into glucose, the source of energy for the body. Low carb diets are believed to be the best choice of diet to prevent or control diabetes. Therefore a low carb diet and diabetes are linked, and a low carb diet could be beneficial for people living with diabetes. Several studies reveal that a low carbohydrate diet can be beneficial for people with diabetes.
With a low-carb diet there’s a greater chance for the control and prevention of diabetes. A low carb diet can reduce the risk of certain complications associated with diabetes, such as heart disease, kidney, eye and foot damage, and skin conditions by lowering the blood glucose levels. Following a low carb diet can reduce the need for diabetic medications by reducing blood sugar and insulin levels, improving insulin resistance and promoting weight loss.
The best way to control or prevent type 2 diabetes and the complications associated with it is to be aware of the foods we consume. A low carb diet is definitely a great option for people living with diabetes to assist in lowering and maintaining the balance of their blood sugar levels.
The studies consistently show that when people cut carbs and eat more protein and fat, they end up eating much fewer calories. In fact… when researchers are comparing low-carb and low-fat diets in studies, they need to actively restrict calories in the low-fat groups to make the results comparable (2).
Bottom Line: When people cut carbs, their appetite tends to go down and they often end up eating much fewer calories without trying. Cutting carbs is one of the simplest and most effective ways to lose weight. Studies show that people on low-carb diets lose more weight, faster, than people on low-fat diets… even when the low-fat dieters are actively restricting calories.


One of the reasons for this is that low-carb diets tend to get rid of excess water from the body.
In studies comparing low-carb and low-fat diets, the low-carbers sometimes lose 2-3 times as much weight, without being hungry (5, 6). Low-carb diets appear to be particularly effective for up to 6 months, but after that the weight starts creeping back up because people give up on the diet and start eating the same old stuff (7). Bottom Line: Almost without exception, low-carb diets lead to more weight loss than the diets they are compared to, especially in the first 6 months.
Visceral fat is fat that tends to lodge around the organs. Having a lot of fat in that area can drive inflammation, insulin resistance and is believed to be a leading driver of the metabolic dysfunction that is so common in Western countries today (8). Bottom Line: A large percentage of the fat lost on low-carb diets tends to come from the harmful fat in the abdominal cavity that is known to cause serious metabolic problems. When people cut carbs, they tend to have a very dramatic reduction in blood triglycerides (14, 15). Compare this to low-fat diets, which can cause triglycerides to go up in many cases (16, 17). Bottom Line: Low-carb diets are very effective at lowering blood triglycerides, which are fat molecules in the blood and a well known risk factor for heart disease. Whereas LDL carries cholesterol from the liver and to the rest of the body, HDL carries cholesterol away from the body and to the liver, where it can be reused or excreted. Bottom Line: Low-carb diets tend to be high in fat, which leads to an impressive increase in blood levels of HDL, often referred to as the “good” cholesterol. For people who are healthy, the quick insulin response tends to minimize the blood sugar “spike” in order to prevent it from harming us. However… many, many people have major problems with this system. This can lead to a disease called type 2 diabetes, when the body fails to secrete enough insulin to lower the blood sugar after meals.
If you are currently on blood sugar lowering medication, then talk to your doctor before making changes to your carbohydrate intake, because your dosage may need to be adjusted in order to prevent hypoglycemia. Bottom Line: The best way to lower blood sugar and insulin levels is to reduce carbohydrate consumption. Bottom Line: Studies show that reducing carbs leads to a significant reduction in blood pressure, which should lead to a reduced risk of many common diseases. Metabolic syndrome is a medical condition that is highly associated with the risk of diabetes and heart disease. Unfortunately, the government and major health organization still recommend a low-fat diet for this purpose, which is pretty much useless because it does nothing to address the underlying metabolic problem.
Bottom Line: Low-carb diets effectively reverse all 5 key symptoms of the metabolic syndrome, a serious condition known to predispose people to heart disease and type 2 diabetes. Bottom Line: When you eat a low-carb diet, your LDL particles change from small (bad) LDL to large LDL – which is benign. It is often claimed that glucose is necessary for the brain… and it’s true. Some part of the brain can only burn glucose.
This is the mechanism behind the ketogenic diet, which has been used for decades to treat epilepsy in children who don’t respond to drug treatment (44). In many cases, this diet can cure children of epilepsy.

I have had low blood sugar issues since I was a kid, often passing out in class because I hadn’t eaten enough protein. When the average person embarks on a diet or fitness regimen in the aim of losing weight or building muscle mass, what they are usually instructed to do is to eat lots of protein and go on a low carbohydrate diet to accomplish either of the goals.
Based on misinformation to this effect, several people view the daily consumption of a high-protein diet as beneficial. Several people subsists on fruits and green leaves exclusively or starchy root vegetables, fruits and leaves only and are in top shape-I’ve seen and am one of them. People have fasted on water only for several days and were actually stronger for the process! Based on research, the need for amino acids is highly exaggerated as only 16% or our body is Protein.

In fact, we can take the whole periodic, deliberate low intake philosophy one step further for really explosive results… but that’s a blog article for next week!


It tells you what people might do in an experimental context, not which course of action is better. This is confirmed by the higher level of urinary keytones at 3 and 6 but not 12 or 24 months.  But that would happen anyway because of the design of the study. At 12 months, you’d be up to 210 grams per day which probably causes weight gain.  So even those who followed the protocol were not on a low carbohydrate diet for most of the two years.
By reducing the intake of carbohydrates, blood glucose and insulin levels will go way down and you’ll have no need for all of that insulin. Low carb diets have been shown to reduce blood sugar levels, promote weight loss and improve heart health. Since the diet doesn’t have to be too restrictive, low carbing can be easily incorporated into your lifestyle. It’s well-known that consuming carbohydrates causes our blood sugar and insulin levels to rise. Controlling blood glucose levels through a low carb diet can help prevent these complications. Reducing the intake of carbohydrates will result in lower blood glucose and insulin levels. Because they lower insulin levels, the kidneys start shedding excess sodium, leading to rapid weight loss in the first week or two (3, 4).
The only way to succeed in the long-term is to stick to it. However, some people may be able to add in healthy carbs after they have reached their goal weight. The higher it is, the greater your risk of heart disease is (26, 27, 28). By lowering triglycerides and raising HDL levels, low-carb diets lead to a major improvement in this ratio. They have what is called insulin resistance, which means that the cells don’t “see” the insulin and therefore it is harder for the body to bring the blood sugar into the cells (29). This disease is very common today, afflicting about 300 million people worldwide (30). There is actually a very simple solution to this problem… by cutting carbohydrates, you remove the need for all of that insulin. People who have mostly small particles have a high risk of heart disease, while people who have mostly large particles have a low risk (40, 41, 42). It turns out that low-carb diets actually turn the LDL particles from small to large, while reducing the number of LDL particles floating around in the bloodstream (43).
Cutting carbs may also reduce the number of LDL particles floating around in the bloodstream. That’s why the liver produces glucose out of protein if we don’t eat any carbs. But a large part of the brain can also burn ketones, which are formed during starvation or when carbohydrate intake is very low.
In one study, over half of children on a ketogenic diet had a greater than 50% reduction in seizures. I think you and I live in the same world and I’ve been living a low carb lifestyle for over a decade. The great apes are primarily fruit eaters (although with substantial amount of leaves in their diets) How similar are humans to them? But look at the column titled “Only Study Subjects”, comparing those that actually followed the low carb or low fat diet, and you find that the low carb dieters actually lost 2.8 kg [6 pounds] more than the low fat dieters (47% more weight).
We are comparing a low-calorie weight-loss diet that lasted for two years with a low-carb diet that reached maintenance level within 6 months. I have been using MRET technology and tubular cell phone headsets to shield my family and clients. Following a low carb diet means fewer carbs in our system and therefore less insulin is produced in response to the change in blood sugar levels. The need of protein for the human body is about a nickel’s weight worth, the excess is basically excreted in urine. Since we are able to utilize and assimilate a large amount of our needs of these elements, we are able to build the Nitrogen into our body as protein. I’m always so much healthier with low carb, but it is so hard to not to want to cheat and eat like the rest of the world. This process is done by natural bacteria action that is capable of converting it to our use. Meanwhile, eliminated in their fecal matter was a protein of around 15 times more of what was ingested. People who smoke though cannot pick up Nitrogen from the air so easily but might still get enough from proper foods.
