Mayo Clinic Minute: Low-carb diet findings and cautions

Mayo Clinic

Mayo Clinic

Published on 3 years ago

A new Mayo Clinic study shows low-carbohydrate diets are slightly more effective for weight loss than low-fat diets.

"Our review found those following the low-carbohydrate diet lost about 2.5 to 5 pounds more than those following comparison diets, which usually were calorie-restricted and or low-fat," says Dr. Heather Fields, an internal medicine physician at Mayo Clinic and the study's lead author.

Dr. Fields says, although no short-term negative health consequences were noted, the research did not examine the long-term implications of a low-carb diet.

In this Mayo Clinic Minute, Dr. Fields further explains the study's findings and notes important cautions that come with a diet low in carbohydrates. Jeff Olsen reports.

Caution: low carb does NOT equal keto! Please read through some of these studies quoted by medical experts (if they even post them) and you’ll find that they are referring to diets with around 20% of calories coming from carbohydrates (any carbohydrate) and sometimes high protein, which is more than enough to keep insulin levels high and cause problems.

This particular cholesterol guidebook “Hοzantο Axy” (Google it) is not just high quality answer yet inexpensive also. I started to employ this adhering to my personal doctor`s proposals to lower my blood cholesterol level. I notice good results within 2 weeks merely. It is fantastic! The pain has disappeared and also my energy level has grown in each passing day. The final results of my labs proved that I am improving. .

So more weight loss with low carb, but can’t advocate it... but advocate a diet doesn’t work as well. Oh, a well formulated low carb diet meets all 27 essential nutrients, including fiber... but still wants grains. Grains are the issue with how the body metabolizes... boy, they just can’t get reality, can they?

I didnt eat clean keto and regret it now. I ate dirty keto for a year and it put strain on my gallbladder. Now I'm awaiting surgery soon. This sucks!. If your going on keto please stay away from all that animal grease.

I think any long -term diet restriction is unhealthy for you, and difficult to stick with anyway. A balanced diet of natural foods that are not made in factory and exercise always works long term. Low Carb/Low Fat work short-term for many, but I ALWAYS hear about people gaining back the weight. There is no "magic" diet other than natural foods eaten in moderation and in balance.

12 weeks on keto, down 30 lbs. wife down 19. We have also cut down our caloric intake a lot which obviously also helps. Original goal was for 40 lbs. weight loss. New goal is 60 lbs. that will be from 243 to 183.

Mayo Clinic depends on you being unhealthy and sick as a dog so they can make money off of you. Do not follow any diet advice they have!

Can a low carb be just eating hamburger meat? And eggs, and tortilla lettuce wrapped sandwiches? I eat only 122 carbs a day I used to eat 621 carbs a day now I eat 122 carbs a day

I have two common diseases on which the Mayo Clinic has been leading the pack in producing and promoting pseudoscience for the last several decades. I’m not surprised whenever I hear anything out of Mayo, it is almost always anti-science propaganda.

I always defaulted to the mediterraian "diet" its balanced in a lot of ways and your not cutting much out. Many middle eastern dishes are really good and not processed. Basically anything processed is bad just have to be moderate about it.

After 21 months eating low carb I've lost 60 lbs easily. Low carb eating is not just slightly more effective than a low fat diet. I got fat eating a low fat diet for 45 years.

I cannot get into burning weight on this kinosis diet. I did lose 167 lb keeping my carbs to 25 per meal. But it's 61 my body is just not moving any of that weight. I'm riding on these sites just no good nobody ever answers you they make a video and disappear if I don't hear from anybody I'm beginning to think all these people who have 16k followers it's a bunch of horse pucky there's nobody watching it at all they're paying YouTube every month to make it look like they have followers as they do on Facebook and Twitter.

This is propaganda that will kill you if you are carb intolerant. Do educate yourself but don't just follow the "traditional" advice because it has led to an explosion of diabetes and other diseases. And NEVER EVER GIVE UP BACON!

Let's have some perspective here. Losing weight should NOT be the primary goal. A diet of rat poison is low carb and guaranteed to lose weight; but fatal. Losing weight HEALTHFULLY should be the goal for nearly everyone.. The WHO has determined ALL animal products are probably carcinogenic as well as being the only source of cholesterol - the primary heart disease trigger - as well as concentrated sources of calories, mercury, antibiotics and pesticides. The only HEALTHY way to lose weight is with a low calorie density diet of ORGANIC complex carb plants.
