Article on High Protein Diets – Are they for real?

I just read a great article on high protein diets and how effective they really are. Check it out:

Excerpts from the article:

The solution is a diet with the appropriate amount of energy, high in fibrous or starchy carbs, and exercise. In fact, a study of type II diabetics, people with insulin resistance and normal weight people found that three weeks of a high-carbohydrate, low-fat diet, and exercise significantly lowered insulin levels.

Interesting statistics from a large weight loss study:

Of the 438 initial enrollees of the National Weight Control Registry (having lost an average of 66.0 lbs. for over five years), none were successful by following a low-carbohydrate, high-fat diet. In fact, the common denominator for success dietarily was a low-fat diet with a macronutrient profile of approximately 20 percent protein, 25 percent fat, and 55 percent carbohydrate.

Read the article for more information. I hope you learned more about diet and what’s right for you.
