The Truth About Low Carb Diets by Rankalexa

low carb diets

Still bashed and ridiculed by modern medicine, the low carb diets has truly come of age. Modern medicine refused to even look into this diet form because it has been convinced since the 1950’s that fat and cholesterol were the causes of many diseases including heart and cardiovascular disease.

Cracks in this theory began as soon as it was proposed, but the cracks weren’t wide enough to tumble the edifice. Dr. Atkins chipped away at it for years but made so many fatal mistakes in his plan’s design, such as calories don’t count, that it was difficult for any in the Profession to take him seriously.

Lack of understanding about the effectiveness of the low-carbohydrate diet was further compounded because funding to study this style of eating wasn’t available as the National Institutes of Health and the American Heart Association refused to grant funds for any research that disputed their belief about fat and cholesterol causing heart disease.

About Low Carb Diets

At the same time, the rates of degenerative diseases climbed and an enormous obesity epidemic ensued. It took about thirty years, but questions finally arose as to whether the low-fat/high-carbohydrate diet shoved down all American’s throats by the medical/government Establishment was to blame.

It was known by biochemists in 1950 that the body rapidly converts dietary carbohydrates into body fat. Few in medicine are also well trained in science. If someone had done a few days of research, we may have avoided this society-wide experiment in the creation of poor health.

The next major development was the introduction in the mid-1980’s of the Glycation Theory of Disease. This theory states that glucose (blood sugar), from eating carbohydrates, binds to the body’s tissue proteins, its genetic material (DNA and RNA), forming what are called irreversible glycated proteins.

The body actually becomes glued together, tissues become damaged and a whole host of degenerative diseases develop. Diabetes is a classic example.

The outcome of the glycation process is rapidly advanced aging.

Unfortunately, no one seems to have heard a word about glycation and all we hear about is the old 1950’s worn-out and invalid cliché about cholesterol. No surprise, the world often remains locked in false beliefs and nothing short of a major revolution can change the direction of the wheels.

So, what’s the dietary solution? Reduce carbohydrate intake. But, a recommendation to do this won’t come from the government or medicine and this information can only be released by those in the private sector.

The research on the dangerous effects of glycation is compelling and voluminous, with 6,418 papers published in medical and scientific journals since 1984.

Important to having people understand how effective carbohydrate reduction would be in improving health is that they must understand that the existing methods of using this diet lifestyle aren’t effective. I’ve worked with this diet for almost two decades and published a step-by-step guide on the best way to do this program.
