Can A Low-carb Diet Help Prevent A Heart Attack?

Conventional advice says one of the best ways to help your heart (and your waistline) is to stay away from fatty foods like red meat. But according to a new study, the opposite might actually be true. New research published in the journal PLOS ONE found that focusing on reducing your carbohydrate intake is actually better for your health than just trying to stay away from fat. In fact, when researchers looked at 17 randomized studies of overweight people, they found that a high-fat, low-carb diet was 98 percent more likely to lower the risk of heart attack and stroke than skimping on fat in favor of carbs. (Learn more about The Truth About the Low-Carb High-Fat Diet.) But the perks went beyond heart health: Participants on the low-carb diet (consuming less than 120 grams a day) were 99 percent more likely to lose weight than those avoiding fats (making up less than 30 percent of their daily calories). Those are tough numbers to argue with! On average, the low-carb dieters lost about five pounds more than their low-fat counterparts. (Find out Why Women Need Fat.) Researchers aren't exactly sure why reducing carbs in favor of avoiding fat lowered the risk of heart attack and stroke, Continue reading >>

    This morning I was sipping on my keto coffee and a coworker asked if I was eating soup b/c of how it looked. I explained that it was coffee with butter and MCT oil in it and the first thing he says is "have fun with that heart attack". I just kind of laughed it off but it really annoyed me. I tried to tell him that's not really what's going to happen but he didn't want to hear it. Why is it necessary to say crap like that and then totally ignore what I have to say in defense of my diet? I guess I will now be drinking my coffee with a cover on it to avoid conversations like this.
    Edit: After thinking about it and reading some of these comments. Screw what anyone else thinks, I'll drink my damn coffee any damn way I want, I don't have to explain what I eat or drink to anyone. KCKO

    The annoying thing with stuff like this is the people who preach this crap never even fully embraced a low-fat diet. My dad, who had bypass surgery in the 90s was ALL IN on the low fat train. He even ate so little fat, the doctor had to convince him he needed SOME. He spent the 90s until probably 2006ish on a strict diet he NEVER cheated on - with the help of my mom who also adopted the diet to support him and be healthy. They learned to make baked chips, NEVER had a French fry, didn't have pizza, except maybe the discarded (non-pan crust) edge of a slice of pizza with no toppings. He ate bran muffins every day. Every. Day. And they weren't the tasty sugary ones. They were disgusting. With all kinds of "heart healthy" add ins mymmom figured out how to get in them.
    My point is, he embraced the diet, per doctor's orders. He had a small heart attack in 2004 or 2005, which is what made him question the diet when the doctor said, "You made it far longer than most patents!" And then commended his dedicated workout routine for having such a strong heart.
    It took a few years of research before he realized he'd been wrong all of this time. Now he eats a more varied diet. But is still anti fried foods, and too much restaurant or prepared stuff. But now he's leaning away from breads and sugar. And eats more animal products and they're really into healthy fats now. If he can dedicate twenty years of his life to low-fat and adapt to it being wrong, anyone can!
