Wondering if there is any problems with a high fat, high protein, low carbohydrate diet?

Wondering if there are any problems (kidney, liver, heart, prostate) with a high-fat high protein/low carbohydrate diet like Dr. Mario Dipasquale's anabolic diet? The diet's main energy source is fat and protein. It restricts carbohydrates to less than 30 grams per day during the week and then on the weekend (no longer than 48...

Consider your stance on low carb diets.

My daughter is a dietitian. She fought it but now consults positively. What I am discussing is the Low Carb Diet. I have attended 2 seminars in past 6 weeks. Other dietitians are disputing your negative statements. May I suggest you rethink and investigate a bit past what you have been taught? As my...

Low carbohydrate diet requires permanent changes which are hard to keep indefinitely.

Thank you for your response. There are very accurate ways to measure fat loss. Dr. Atkins' book talks about documented fat loss tests performed on patients. Once again, your response is very biased in the words you use and the way you use them. Any "diet" is a fad diet. People that reduce calories and...

Women I work with pester me about a hi protein, low carbohydrate diet.

Just wanted to let you know how happy I am to have found this website. I work with several women who are on the high protein / low carbohydrate diet. They continually pester me, saying that the way I am aiming for weight loss (exercise and well-balanced meals) is no good. I am part of the...

I don’t want to do anything harmful because I had trouble with a low calorie diet.

Thanks so much for your prompt and detailed response regarding my question about a low carbohydrate diet. I very much appreciate your professional opinion because I don't want to do anything harmful. Just so you know, when I said I "had trouble" with a low-calorie diet, I simply meant I had trouble staying on...

How many grams of carbohydrate are in a glass of orange juice?

I can lose weight on a low carbohydrate diet. I count grams of carbohydrates and usually aim for around 50. I only need to lose 15 pounds. Can you tell me how many grams of carbohydrate are in a glass of orange juice? Some lists say 1/2 cup contains 12 grams of carbohydrate and...

Someone would be hard pressed to convince me that low carbohydrate is not healthy.

Your information on low carbohydrate eating is questionable. You do not cite a single study, nor do you rely on information from the research of any type. What I know to be true is that since I have begun restricting my carbohydrates during the day to virtually 0 grams and enjoying as much carbohydrate as...

I wanted to know your opinion of the protein power diet that is gaining popularity.

I wanted to know your opinion of the protein power diet that is gaining popularity. As you probably know, it's promoted by two MD's (Drs. Eades). They have two levels: one is about 30 grams of carbohydrate a day; the other is a little less restrictive, about 55 grams per day (which is the...

What are the differences between Atkins diet and a low calorie diet?

While looking up different diets, we came across the Atkins low carbohydrate diet. What are the differences between such a diet and a low-calorie diet? Are low carbohydrate diets safe? Are low-calorie diets safe for that matter? How do these diets affect people with different profiles i.e. athletes vs. overweight people? Are there perhaps different strategies that...

If traditional weight loss programs of diet & exercise works, then why do we have an obesity epidemic?

Everyone, including yourself, seems to be attacking low carbohydrate diets. If your traditional weight loss programs of balanced diet and exercise are the way to go, then why do we have an obesity epidemic with the majority of obese people have tried that way of dieting (myself included) without long-term success? You are so eager...
