Following a low carb, high fat diet bad for health

There are time periods when different types of diets become popular; for example, even though it may not seem logical, a low-carb and high-fat diet is believed by millions to be a pretty effective diet to lose weight. Further, other diets emphasize eating lean and controlling your food intake, something that is not very easy to follow on a regular basis. The low-carb, high-fat diet gives you a lot of good stuff to eat, and are touted as diets that promote rapid loss of weight. A recent research however questions the effectiveness of this diet, and also lead to a higher risk of cardio-vascular diseases; this leads to a further increase of risks when you consider that obese and diabetes afflicted people already have a higher risk of heart problems and blood pressure (link to article):

“High-fat diets have become popular because they seemingly promote more rapid weight loss and because of their palatability,” said Hunter. “However, we now have proof that they do not help people lose weight any faster than more conventional diets, and the potential negatives of increased cardiovascular risks far outweigh the potential positives,” added Hunter.
“The worldwide obesity pandemic is a major public health concern and strongly linked to rises in diabetes and cardiovascular disease,” said Hunter. “Advocating low-carbohydrate high-fat diets as a weapon against obesity and diabetes, health professionals could be contributing to a dangerous rise in cardiovascular disease,” warned Hunter.
