What're the effects of the low-carb hyper-caloric diet on the body?

Controversial: My conclusion is that such a diet is likely to be less fattening, but more likely to result in more heart disease and hardening of arteries. The healthiest diet is one that limits whites like sugar, flour, rice, and pasta, includes unlimited vegetables, a lot of fruits and beans, some nuts and whole grains, 3 xs a week wild salmon, and uses almond milk; limits dairy, meats, and lots of oils. ...Read more

Unsafe, unwise: I believe most extreme diets are unhealthy and unwise and this is a good example. I advise limiting protein to about 70 grams a day. Higher amounts puts stress on the kidneys, can cause osteoporosis and may reduce longevity- esp. If the main source is animal protein. I believe it's not wise to limit all carbs- but it is wise to limit sugars and starches.

Extremes: I believe it is better for most to eat nearly everything in moderation instead of going on an extreme diet. I don't see how getting ketosis, which may reduce your appetite, can be good for the body. As for the high fat, too much saturated fat is likely harmful because it promotes inflammation. If you must, try unsaturated fat. ...Read more
