Effect of low-carbohydrate diets on cardiometabolic risk, insulin resistance, and metabolic syndrome

ONeill, Blair J

Quote:
An obesity epidemic has resulted in increasing prevalence of insulin resistance, hyperinsulinemia, metabolic syndrome (MetS), and cardiovascular disease (CVD). The Diet-Heart Hypothesis posited that dietary fat is the culprit. Yet dietary fat reduction has contributed to the problem, not resolved it. The role of hyperinsulinemia, the genesis of its atherogenic dyslipidemia and systemic inflammation in CVD and its reversal is reviewed.

Low carbohydrate ketogenic therapy as a metabolic treatment for binge eating and ultraprocessed food addiction

The aim of this study was to highlight the recent advancements and future directions for potential use of a low carbohydrate ketogenic dietary approach to treat binge eating and ultraprocessed food addiction. Herein, we explore proposed mechanisms of why a diet low in refined carbohydrates, processed sugar and higher fat content may be helpful in alleviating symptoms.

Ketogenic diets, which have been used to treat drug-refractory paediatric epilepsy for over 100 years, are becoming increasingly popular for the treatment of other neurological conditions, including mental illnesses.

Many thanks for posting all of these article links.

I had posted the pre-print version of Dr Westman's Editorial on August 13th below, but that version has now been removed and the link is broken.
This is fantastic! You take the time to include direct links to every one of the titles. Now if more endocrinologists would read the whole issue.

Demi, I am constantly in awe of your posts. And very appreciative of all the time you take to share these studies with us - especially providing the links.

Thank you

The links are great, but only if you're a subscriber, which costs $1,327 for a one-year subscription. Too bad. I would like to have read some of these. Dr. Westman is one of the healthcare professionals I most admire.

Excellent topics. These study titles have me interested but, like Bawdy, not enough to pay to read them. Here's hoping general access will be available at some point.

I would like to add that for me, the abstracts are often enough to get the gist of where the research is going, but Ive also found that many times if you have the time and patience, the studies can be found elsewhere on the internet.

Thanks! I find such links alone are good to have for people who make fun of me for the way I eat.

I'm not falling for psuedo-science. I'm not a "sheep." If the way I look and feel now is not compelling, here's some science.

(Yes, the irony of vegans calling me a sheep is noted.)

I agree WereBear. It still amazes me in this day and age people still call low carb dangerous. Nobody used those words in the 1980s/early 90s fat free era, when I was piling on the fat free sugar and white flour in my fat free cookies!

Likewise, I was restricting myself to 25 grams of fat a day, AND working out 1.5 hours a day. To lose down to 150. Which I thought was okay at the time.

And the reason I blew past my goal on low carb I've been an adult a long time and never got to my real adult weight

I was thinking about you earlier today WereBear. I had stumbled onto another one of those atrocious "articles" you find all over the place and it was decrying low-carb diets as not being sustainable and only good for making you lose water weight. I immediately thought of you and the fact that the writer of that "article" is basically saying you've lost 100lb of water. Umm okay. I'm gonna have to call BS on that one.
