Low-carb diet poses no risk to heart health, say new studies.

The findings prompted researchers to give the low-carb diet a ringing endorsement in a statement that seems to make the high-protein option an unequivocally healthy diet alternative.

The report itself was prompted by concerns from people who wanted to follow a low-carb diet like Atkins, South Beach or the Zone but were wary of the diets' higher fat content.

"Our study should help allay the concerns that many people who need to lose weight have about choosing a low-carb diet instead of a low-fat one, and provide re-assurance that...[a] low-carb approach does not seem to pose any immediate risk to vascular health," said lead author, Kerry Stewart."More people should be considering a low-carb diet as a good option."

Excellent report/article. It's not just diabetics that can lead and live a healthier life, usually with lower or sometimes nil medication. By following a low carb lifestyle all can benefit. It just makes sense. We do not need excess amounts of sugar, starch,carbs.
