Study Shows Protein and Natural Fats are Superior to Carbohydrates in Reducing Blood Pressure and Improving Blood Profiles

The following results were published in the online medical journal, “theheart.org,” a publication for cardiologists, in December 2005: [1]

Turning conventional dietary wisdom on its head, results of the OMNIHEART study indicate that substituting proteins or unsaturated fats for carbohydrates within the context of a healthy diet can reduce blood pressure and improve lipid profiles.

Compared with participants eating the carbohydrate-rich diet, those eating the protein-rich diet had greater reductions in blood pressure, LDL, and triglycerides

“[Dr. Barbara] Howard also took issue with the study’s focus on monounsaturated fats, saying she would have preferred a study emphasizing polyunsaturated fats [EFAs], which are known to have a better effect on cardiovascular risk than monounsaturated fats.”

This conclusive evidence supports a diet rich in protein and fat over a diet high in carbohydrates. These facts are also found in the medical journals and medical textbooks, if anyone would care to look.  The results reported in this article are scientifically accurate, but not popular in today’s climate of “nutritional correctness.” But if you follow popular opinion and conventional dietary wisdom INSTEAD of following SCIENCE, you will end up far short of your full potential.
