  • Diet: A brief history of the diet | Atkins Low Carb Diet
    existed for as long as people have needed to change shape get in shape or improve their health Until recently though they just haven t always been particularly effective The first person to diet according to legend was William the Conqueror the shame of getting stuck in a bath tub is likely to make you reflect on the need to cut down slightly William cut out almost everything bar alcohol and so the liquid diet was born He died not too long later but not from his dieting This arguably first diet is bookmarked by modern fads things like the 5 2 diet eat what you want on five days of the week then restrict calories to around 500 a day for the other two days In between there have been hundreds of diets as the availability of cheap often fattening food has made it far easier to over eat When Diets Went Big time What was barely an issue at the start of the 20 th century is now a multi billion pound industry Many diets have a similar focus cut calories so your body uses more calories than you re consuming leading to weight loss which can be a combination of fat muscle and water To a certain extent these diets work Create that net deficit and you ll lose weight The issues arise when it comes to keeping the weight off These diets tends to leave the dieter hungry The body is being starved after all and so they are rarely diets that can work for life At the end the dieter often lapses perhaps even binges and the weight starts piling back on Often the typical pattern is that a few months later they ll be trying another variation of the same basic concept diet Given the sheer number of low calorie diets and the fact that no one has ever found real mass supported long term success there has been a natural desire to find a different type of diet something that can work for life not just shedding weight for a holiday New Low Carb Diet Out of this void rose diets that targeted other areas such as low carb diets and modern versions of these such as the Atkins diet These types of diet have arguably taken a more scientific approach analysing how western diets have changed with carbs now so prominent in the everyday diet Cereal bread pasta on a daily basis adds up to a diet that is high in quick release energy and so the body has all the fuel it needs without touching the fat Any diet high in carbs also has the tendency to leave hunger pangs shortly afterwards how often have we all eaten a pasta meal felt full only to start picking again an hour later Instead low carb diets seek to cut down on carb intake except vegetables whilst encouraging consumption of higher protein fat containing foods such as meat cheese eggs and fatty fish

  • High Protein Diet Side Effects | Atkins Low Carb Diet
    impair your health Beyond such warnings for dieting in general there has been ongoing debate about the side effects of high protein diets and whether they are a safe for weight loss This has dovetailed with high protein diets becoming more popular recently outside of their traditional constituency of bodybuilders Conventionally the side effects of protein diets have centred on possible side effects from long term use This have been fairly inconclusive but point to potentialities like constipation from lacking fibre intake however this can easily be avoided by including high fibre vegetables in your diet Another media scare is that a high protein diet could increase your intake of fat which could contribute potentially to heart disease However research that has been emerging over the last few years has shown that it s only when combining high fat with high carb that this risk may be of concern When following Atkins fat is burnt as energy The only fat we recommend avoiding are man made trans fats But let s examine the traditional side effects that have been associated with high protein diets although note associated is deliberate as nothing has been conclusively proven And once again this is for those high protein diets which focus very much on making protein the lion s share of what you eat and not diets such as Atkins which are moderate in protein and low in carbs and are carefully calculated not to deprive the body of any essential nutrients Osteoporosis and High Protein Diets The conjecture is that high protein diets based around meat can lead to greater bone density loss among women by aged 65 while women who don t eat meat have lower bone density loss This is based on high protein diets requiring more calcium to be processed and excreted which may come from the bones if unavailable elsewhere However calcium is created by eating other products such as dairy Unfortunately there is also research that low protein diets can have a similar affect by reducing intestinal calcium absorption so it remains inconclusive if this is a demonstrable side effect High Protein Diets and Renal Problems This is a long standing cited potential side effect of high protein diets As the kidneys filter proteins it s claimed a high protein diet can put an additional strain upon the kidneys However this advice tends only to be directed at people with existing renal function issues Studies of bodybuilders with high protein diets have therefore often been used to show a lack of impaired renal function among the healthy High Protein Diets and Diabetes Another often cited potential side effect of protein diets posits a relationship between diabetes and high protein consumption This claim that because the body is forced to burn off proteins and fat for energy ketones accumulate in the body Our bodies have internal mechanisms to regulate ketones from becoming too high but if this occurs due to lack of insulin then you could fall into a

    Low Carb Foods Healthy Diets Diet A brief history High Protein Diet Side Effects High Protein Foods High Protein Diets Diet Plans for Men Diet Plans for Women High Protein Foods Proteins are large molecules comprising strings of amino acids which are vital for every living being They are a structural component of human tissue and our bodies and cells require them to function Being part of our skin bone and muscles it s not surprising that they account for about 20 of our body weight They are often described in terms of machines or engines as they form part of our cells that make us function In terms of diet they form part of the three macronutrients that we all need the others being fat and carbohydrates How Much Do We Need Many variables can impact on the amount of protein a human body requires to function well Age gender weight muscle mass whether you exercise and a person s health being among the key ones However 1lb of protein per 1 Kg of body weight is sometimes used as a rough guide to minimum protein requirements Why do we need to eat it While the human body is perfectly capable of producing certain amino acids there are many essential ones which can only be acquired though eating Animal and Plant Proteins Protein can be gained from eating animal products and vegetables pulses But there is a difference Humans are animals so it s logical that when we eat other animal proteins we get all the amino acids we need to create protein Vegetable or pulse proteins are usually seen as incomplete proteins and lacking some of these essential amino acids which is why vegetarians or vegans are encouraged to eat a wide variety because as a group they

    fat but have become more commonplace in recent times Our Atkins guides like to keep people informed about all diet and weight loss options but it s prudent to mention that high protein diets are not the same as a low carbohydrate Atkins diet Instead high protein diets take an approach of strict calorie control And they have also been associated with some controversy not least with recent news reports claiming that high protein diets may be as bad as smoking But before tackling the controversy let s examine the basics What is Protein Protein is one of three macronutrients the other two being fat and carbohydrates Its constituent parts are amino acids commonly called the building blocks of protein After consuming protein they are metabolised by the body into amino acids which adhere to bone and muscle structure in the body and free flowing proteins like enzymes and hormones Why do we need Protein Protein helps keep the body functioning with amino acids vital for growth and functioning of many things it helps to repair and recover damaged muscle tissue aids hair growth helps organs indeed it s vital as an engine oil to keep the body running effectively The body itself manufactures some amino acids for protein production but is reliant on protein from animal or vegetable sources for many essential amino acids What foods contain Protein Many foods are sources of protein for the body these include fish poultry eggs meat tofu soy beans nuts and milk What is a High Protein Diet A high protein diet makes the consumption of proteins the key component of dieting and this involves eating above recommended required amounts 1 2g of protein per kilo of bodyweight generally seen as the minimum required intake Over 50 of your foods being proteins would lead to the designation of high protein diet Their contribution to weight loss pivots on the view that a high protein intake stops people feeling hungry and decreases their calorie intake There are a number of popular versions of high protein diets which emphasise this consumption The Paleo diet in theory attempts to recreate what it claims is a natural diet for the body replicating what our human ancestors would have eaten This means the avoidance of anything modern such as refined carbs or grains rice wheat sugar etc and a focus on anything ancient a surfeit of animal proteins i e plenty of red meat poultry fish and plenty of vegetables The Zone diet has been popularised by many people fond of intensive work outs It involves getting the right ratio of carbs protein and fats eaten as blocks to maintain a balance of insulin and glucagon which in theory leaves the body burning fat for fuel You can eat anything as long as it accords to define ratios Controversy and High Protein Diets In March 2014 high protein diets featured in many news stories as being potentially bad for health with a scientist involved likening a high
