Mayo Clinic Minute: Low-carb diet findings and cautions
New Study Reveals That Carbs Might Not Be So Bad
Good news, bread lovers! Time to dust off your pizza rollers and break out your bread-baking pans: The dreaded carbohydrate may not be so bad after all.
Despite the bad press that carbs have received in recent years, research from the University of Sydney has some positive carb news. Scientists recently gave mice a variety of diets—some with higher protein content, others with higher carb content. After looking at the total calories the mice consumed, the data revealed that the difference in overall health between the two diets didn't vary greatly.
Stephen Simpson, a senior author at the University of Sydney, said that despite this new finding, exercising and avoiding overeating are what really determine your wellness.
"It still holds true that reducing food intake and body weight improves metabolic health and reduces the risk of diseases like type 2 diabetes, obesity and fatty liver disease," Simpson told Time.com. "However…it appears that including modest intakes of high-quality protein and plenty of healthy carbohydrates in the diet will be beneficial for health as we age."
Scientists will continue to analyze this research to discover which specific carbohydrates are best for the body, as well as how this finding could affect long-term health in humans.
