Plant Protein Diet More Effective than High-Carb Diet

June 8, 2009: 09:33 AM EST
The plant-protein based Eco-Atkins diet worked better than a high-carb diet at reducing levels of low-density lipoprotein or LDL, according to a research team lead by Dr. David Jenkins of St. Michael's Hospital and the University of Toronto in Ontario. The diet also showed signs of lowering blood cholesterol, the researchers said. The traditional Atkins low-carb diet has been shown to help lower triglycerides and raise "good" cholesterol, but it also tends to raise bad cholesterol levels. The Eco-Atkins diet is high in vegetable proteins from gluten, soy, nuts, fruits, vegetables, cereals and vegetable oils.
