Study advises replacing carbs with plant-based proteins and fats, rather than meats
Boston, MA – People on low-carb diets should replace carbs with plant-based proteins and fats, rather than meats, a U.S. study suggests.
Both high and low percentages of carbohydrate diets were associated with increased mortality, with minimal risk observed at 50–55 per cent carbohydrate intake, the study's authors found.
Low-carbohydrate dietary patterns favouring animal-derived protein and fat sources, from sources such as lamb, beef, pork, and chicken, were associated with higher risk of premature death.
Those that favoured plant-derived protein and fat intake, from sources such as vegetables, nuts, peanut butter, and whole-grain breads, were associated with lower risk of premature death.
This suggests the source of food may significantly modify the association between carbohydrate intake and mortality.
