Surprising discovery in low-carb vs. high-carb debate

Times are changing. People are finally catching on to a low-carbohydrate way of eating!

In a recent post by Time, scientists now suggest advising people to focus on watching their carbohydrate levels instead of fat.

The study was comprised of 135,000 from 18 different countries. The average diet was made up of 61% carbohydrates, 23% fat and 15% protein.

The results? Those who consumed a high-carbohydrate diet had a nearly 30% higher risk (than their low-carbohydrate counterparts) of dying during the study. And people eating high-fat diets had a 23% lower chance of dying during the study.

“Individuals with high carbohydrate intake might benefit from a reduction in carbohydrate intake and an increase in the consumption of fats,” the study authors write.
