I did the Atkins Diet many years ago and it scares me when I see more and more studies like this one on all-cause mortality rates that document how dangerous Atkins is. (Be sure to read the article by Dean Ornish, M.D. in the Huffinton Post.) At Slender For Life™ we encourage a plant-based diet that supports long lasting health and weight loss. Are you trying to lose weight with Atkins or some other fad diet? Stop the diet madness and become Slender For Life™.
Atkins Diet Increases All-Cause Mortality
Here is an excerpt of an article by Dean Ornish, M.D., in The Huffington Post on September 14, 2010.
A major study was just published in the Annals of Internal Medicine from Harvard. In approximately 85,000 women who were followed for 26 years and 45,000 men who were followed for 20 years, researchers found that all-cause mortality rates were increased in both men and women who were eating a low-carbohydrate Atkins diet based on animal protein.
However, all-cause mortality rates as well as cardiovascular mortality rates were decreased in those eating a plant-based diet low in animal protein and low in refined carbohydrates.
I recently wrote about the Plant-Based Food Guide Pyramid that we support at Slender For Life™. My book, Becoming Slender For Life and its hypnosis CD set are based on plant-based foods and support you in creating a healthier lifestyle with weight loss hypnosis.
