Avatar m tn It is also odd how Japan used to be a main protein diet nation, then after hearing scares of fat related heart disease, they switched to carbs. They are now seeing heart disease increasing. I just don't understand what's taking so long in finding the cause. Perhaps they spent too many years looking at fat.
Avatar f tn If not burned quickly they store as fat, and the belly is the first place they are stored, which gives rise to the term beer belly -- alcohol is high is sugar and carbs. So along with exercise, the important thing is to eat foods you metabolize well and digest well and cut down on the ones that "stick," such as simple carbs and the wrong kinds of fat.
Avatar m tn I am a 26 year old male with a strong family history of type 2 diabetes(father, his mother) and heart disease (father, both grandfathers). Two years ago I got an A1C done and it was 5.7. Last month I got it tested again and it was 5.4. I've been on a very healthy diet with lower carbs, no sugar, more fiber, more unsaturated fats(especially Omega 3), limited saturated fat and completely cut out trans fats. About 85-90% of my diet is unprocessed whole foods that I cook myself.
Avatar f tn 5 ounces of most nuts, including almonds, as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol may reduce the risk of heart disease. And even though almonds are relatively high in fat and calories, studies show that eating almonds can actually help with weight loss (their protein, fiber, and monounsaturated fats provide the feeling of fullness, preventing overeating).

Avatar n tn Hi everyone I'm just interested in what type of diets people have heard about that are good for preventing heart disease. From what i've read, sugar is probably a much bigger problem than fat - because it causes inflammation. The inflammation then leads to plaque build up. I have read about low fat diets that cut out all oils as well....and i attempted to follow one for a while. I have the discipline (i saw my dad die in front of me) but i think it didn't work very well....

I am really worried as I have been having some issues with my health that has caused me to go and see not only my regular doctor but a cardiologist, pulmonologist, ENT, nerologist, etc. I have had previous history of GERD and hyperacidity that I thought I outgrew. Now I am having respiratory issues that all the tests have come out negative for.

976897 tn?1379167602 Their results showed saturated fat intake had no effect on heart disease in men. In women it was a different story. The more saturated fat women consumed, the lower their risk was of heart problems. Quite the opposite taken as the gospel in medicine today. Even more interesting is Japan, which once had the highest rates of stroke in the world. Between 1958 and 1999, the Japanese doubled their protein intake, ate 400 per cent more fat and their cholesterol levels went up by 20 per cent.
Avatar m tn AND, since many have become westernised, they have certainly started to see the real effects of heart disease. Erijon is correct in that these individual cases are often used to try and disprove the benefits of medications, but they never use the full story. It's the same with the French paradox for the English. Our neighbours consume tons of dairy products yet have very little instance of heart disease compared to us.
