Want to lose weight in 2019 but don’t want to die doing so? Read on!

Low carb and keto diets have been shown to promote weight loss in the short term (6 months to 2 years). However, their safety has been questioned, especially by those researchers and nutritionists who have noted time and time again that the most healthful diets are the ones that promote a predominance of vegetables, fruit, whole grains, seeds, nuts, beans, legumes, and heart healthy fish. As New Year's resolutions are about to get underway and diet modifications are about to be implemented, please consider this: Don't die trying to lose weight!

A study was published in The Lancet this year entitled, "Dietary carbohydrate intake and mortality: a prospective cohort study and meta-analysis." It reviewed the risk of dying based on percentages of carbohydrate intake. It turns out that your mortality risk increases both with low  as well as high carb diets.

Yet here's the rub- your mortality rate from a low-carb diet depends on the source of protein and fat. Your risk of dying goes down if you are eating plant-based sources of protein and goes up (by up to 30%) if you are eating animal-based sources.

Remember that vegetables and fruits count as carbohydrates and that all plants have protein. So when you make your New Year's resolutions, resolve to live a long, healthy life. Minimize your processed and refined carbohydrates and maximize your whole food, plant-based nutrition. Thrive in 2019!

  1. I have been surfing on-line more than three hours as of late, but I never found any fascinating article like yours. It is pretty value sufficient for me. In my view, if all website owners and bloggers made good content as you probably did, the web will be much more useful than ever before.

  2. The core of your writing whilst sounding agreeable in the beginning, did not really settle properly with me after some time. Somewhere throughout the paragraphs you were able to make me a believer but just for a while. I however have got a problem with your leaps in assumptions and you would do nicely to help fill in those breaks. If you can accomplish that, I will surely be impressed.

  3. My programmer is trying to convince me to move to .net from
    PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses.
    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress on a variety of websites for about a year and
    am concerned about switching to another platform. I have heard
    excellent things about blogengine.net. Is there
    a way I can transfer all my wordpress posts into it? Any help
    would be really appreciated!

  4. I am curious to find out what blog system you have been working with?

    I’m having some minor security problems with my latest blog and I’d
    like to find something more secure. Do you have any suggestions?
