Medical Weight Loss Doctors in Miami Highlight Dangers of Low Carb Diets

Miami doctors at American Longevity Center highlight new weight loss study that says a low-carbohydrate, high-protein diet greatly boosts a patient’s risk of heart disease.


Miami, FL – The physicians at American Longevity Center in Miami want dieters to know of a new study that sites the dangers of low carb/ high protein diets. According to a new study published in the British Medical Journal, these diets greatly boost a person’s risk of heart disease.

The study followed the diets of 44,000 Swedish women for a span of about 16 years.  Those who ate a diet low in carbs and packed with protein had an increased risk of heart disease.  Here are the numbers: Every 10 percent decrease in carbohydrate intake or increase in protein intake resulted in a 5 percent increased risk of heart disease. The risk of heart disease increased even further as carbohydrate intake fell and protein intake climbed.

Although low carb/high protein diets are still the most popular way to shed pounds fast, the medical weight loss doctors at American Longevity Center strongly caution against these techniques. 

According to the doctors at ALC, low carb diets are only a temporary weight loss fix.  Because weight gain and difficulty losing weight can be linked to metabolic and hormonal factors, cutting carbohydrates to reduce caloric intake will only delay getting to the root of the problem for lasting weight loss success.
