Eat Your Veggies for Optimal Metabolic Functioning! by Dr. Eric Westman in the June 2013 issue of CarbSmart Magazine. Mom was right! We look at carbohydrates in their most nutritious – and benign – form.
In short, this study suggests that perhaps in the context of a high carbohydrate diet, increasing saturated fat intake may raise total cholesterol, but does not tell us if that rise is comprised largely of LDL or HDL. It demonstrates no increase in atherosclerosis as a result. It doesn’t tell us anything about the effects of a low carbohydrate diet, because there’s no mention of anyone in the study actually eating a low carbohydrate diet. And because it is an observational study, it proves nothing. Nothing at all.
Recommended by the late, great Dr. Atkins as a way to overcome metabolic resistance to weight loss or to break a stall, a fat fast is simple: 1000 calories per day, 90% of those calories from fat. Yes, this is calorie controlled as well as extremely low carbohydrate, and even low protein. The fat fast catapults you into deep ketosis, with its triple benefit of appetite suppression, metabolic advantage, and protection of muscle mass.
