High-fat versus High-Carb Diets
Traditional guidelines restricting fats, total fat, as well as saturated fats, are falling out of favor according to recently published reports. The study, reported on the website of The Lancet finds that higher consumption of total, saturated, monosaturated, and polyunsaturated fats were associated with lower risk for death from heart-related or due to other causes.
Diets involving higher carbohydrate intake can lead to higher risk for overall mortality.
In short, the message is to restrict carbs and increase fat contents in our diet.
