Here's an excellent article for every health care professional who cares about lifestyle change for his/her patients. The following is the most salient point in that article: A common concern expressed by physicians, especially cardiologists, is that any increased dietary fat intake on the LCHF (Low-carb Healthy Fat) diet will increase the risk for the future development of cardiovascular disease. This conviction stems largely from Ancel Keys' original seven countries study, and the subsequent development of the LFHC (Low-fat High Carb) dietary guidelines to prevent cardiovascular disease. However, evidence from numerous RCTs indicate that LCHF diets consistently produce more favourable changes in many measures of cardiovascular risk than do LFHC diets. This applies especially in persons with Insulin resistance, Type 2 DM, Atherogenic dyslipidemia and Nonalcoholic Fatty Liver Disease.
