Women who regularly eat a low carbohydrate, high protein Atkins-style diet are at greater risk of heart disease and stroke, a study suggests.
Researchers say they found an extra four to five cases of cardiovascular disease per 10,000 women per year for those on low carbohydrate high protein diets, and apparently, the stricter the women kept to the diet the greater the risk of cardiovascular disease.
And the difference is apparently as little as eating less than 1 bread roll per day.
DO YOU REALLY THINK THAT REMOVING A SINGLE BREAD ROLL FROM YOUR DIET CAN INCREASE YOUR RISK OF STROKE?!
Unfortunately there is no way that nutrition can be measured this accurately unless they kept the 43000 Swedish women who were a part of this study, in a hospital and controlled everything they ate! So these scientists resorted to the very next best thing.
They asked them to GUESS what they had eaten for the last 6 months...........
This sort of stuff makes me want to beat myself in the head with a barbell. Not an empty barbell, because remember, you should never abuse an unloaded barbell, it is bad for the bearings.......
Also remember to never take any notice of these sort of scaremongering type articles in the media.
Here's one worth reading though. "What really makes us fat"
