Eating a Nic's Keto Healthy Fatty Diet Reduce Body Weight and Improve Cardiovascular Health Markers!

Clinical trial proves that Nic's Keto Diet may improve markers of cardiovascular health.

LONDON, ON, May 4, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- TRC GEN+ is happy to confirm that Prof. Nikolaos Tzenios PH.D. may have found the golden grail of Health with the optimal diet where eating a healthy fat diet reduces body weight and improves cardiovascular health markers.

The high-quality clinical research organization "KGK Science" Canada investigated Nic's Keto Diet's efficacy on cardiovascular Health in an open-label clinical study.

An Study Investigating Nic's Keto Diet on Cardiovascular Health in Healthy Adults With Mildly Elevated LDL Levels

"KGK Science" examined healthy men and women with mildly elevated LDL cholesterol levels over a period of 140 days.

The study's findings have shown that participants had a significant 4.41% reduction in body fat percentage.

Participants' body weight was significantly reduced by 8.55kg.

After five months of adherence to the diet plan, participants showed a significant decrease in their total cholesterol and LDL cholesterol, an increase in the HDL cholesterol, the "good cholesterol," and a significant reduction in blood sugar levels.

Overall, the study results suggest that Nic's Keto Diet may be used to improve body composition and markers of cardiovascular health.

Professor Nikolaos Tzenios is a Professor of Public Health, Fellow of The Royal Society for Public Health (UK), Fellow of the AMERICAN ACADEMY OF ANTI-AGING MEDICINE, ASSOCIATE ACADEMICIAN of the International Academy of Social Sciences, Member of the American Academy of Regenerative Medicine, Member of The European Academy of Allergy and Clinical Immunology, Member of the Royal Society of Biology and a Postgraduate student at Global Clinical Scholars Research Training Program, Department of Postgraduate Medical Education, Harvard Medical School.

I clicked on the links and googled - but couldn't find the actual diet, other than generalized percentages of macros.

I was mainly wondering what that particular study considered to be "healthy fat" on Nic's Keto diet - the heavily promoted unsaturated seed oils, or natural animal fats?

While it's nice to see some serious clinical studies confirming the positive effects of low-carb and ketogenic diets, I am always left baffled why none of these studies were done two or three decades ago given the widespread anecdotal success stories of thousands upon thousands of people that reported these exact same benefits from their personal experiences.

If you haven't already, have a read of the likes of Good Calories Bad Calories by Gary Taubes and/or The Big Fat Surprise by Nina Teicholz. Stories abound of science being treated like a sort of fashion among scientists, where you'd be shunned for daring to openly subscribe to any dietary theory other than what was commonly believed at the time.

Just last night I was telling DH how the competing theories of Rudkin and Keys was settled: not with carefully crafted experiments, but with academic politics and forceful bullying.
