Carbohydrates

For many years, experts have said that saturated fats should be avoided, so it is not easy to think that some fats can be eaten regularly. A study for a year at Stanford University published in the Journal of American Medical Association found conclusive evidence that carbohydrates are actually the reason why people have excess weight and not fat. Carbohydrates also increase the risk of developing heart disease. A low carbohydrate diet reduces the risk of heart disease according to the study, if it sticks to an Atkins diet, you will not have an increased risk of heart disease. The diet can actually reduce your risk. The study concluded that 77 women were more successful in losing weight with diet Atkins low in carbohydrates and rich in fat compared with the of diet Zone (low-carb), Ornish (high in carbohydrates), and those who followed a diet that was based on FDA guidelines, which include less fat and more carbohydrates. However, there is the possibility that not all women have eaten foods suitable in your diet. Even so, the conclusion is that the Atkins diet was much better for the subject than I thought it was, and that it improved cholesterol and blood pressure of subjects to a certain extent.
