Är det inte bättre att äta en 100% plant baserad kost istället? Läste i kostdoktorns flöde på fb om en doktor som räddar 1000 tals liv om året av att se till att patienterna bara äter plantbaserat. Är inte det klokt?
"There is a dilemma relating to the proportion and source of fat, protein, and carbohydrate that constitutes the optimal weight loss and cholesterol-lowering diet. Newer dietary approaches for the prevention and treatment of chronic disease increase the consumption of fruit and vegetables but reduce meat consumption either directly as part of the dietary strategy1 or displace meat by advocating increased intakes of fish, poultry, and low-fat dairy foods.2- 4 Running counter to this advice has been the promotion of low-carbohydrate diets with increased meat consumption for body weight reduction and also in the longer term for the prevention and treatment of diabetes and coronary heart disease (CHD). These diets not only challenge the concept that red meat intakes should be reduced but also reverse the dietary macronutrient profile with fat and protein as the major macronutrients and carbohydrates as the minor macronutrient. Such low-carbohydrate diets have been shown to be effective in inducing weight loss,1,5- 8 reducing insulin resistance,7 lowering serum triglyceride (TG) concentrations, and raising high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C) concentrations.1,5,6 However, the higher meat diets have not resulted in lower low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) concentrations, but have tended to increase LDL-C concentrations except when vegetarian sources of fat and protein were included.1 This lack of a benefit for LDL-C control is a major disadvantage in using this dietary strategy in those already at increased risk of CHD."
