Low-Carb Diets: What You Need to Know
Skipping carbs or going on a low-carb diet has often been tagged as a good way to shed off extra pounds. However, a recent study revealed that the absence of carbohydrates in the diet may increase the risk of dying early.
The study that was shown at the yearly meeting for the European Society of Cardiology used diet information from 25,000 individuals in the course of 11 years. It was discovered that the subjects who had low-carb intake had a 32% higher mortality risk in contrast to those who consumed more carbohydrates in their diet.
Given this new information, carbs might not be so bad after all. It’s helpful to be well-informed before plunging into a low carb diet.
