  • Diet showing higher mortality rate in low-carb, high-meat diets?

    What is your reaction to this study showing a higher mortality rate in low-carb plant based diets vs. low-carb meat based diets? Low-Carbohydrate Diets and All-Cause and Cause-Specific Mortality I am living Primal, but want to be more comfortable in my decision in respect to my long-term health.

    I'm puzzled as to why the animal protein groups show similar levels of daily red and/or processed meat intake as the vegetable protein groups

      Brand-Spankin’ New Study: Are Low-Carb Meat Eaters in Trouble? Raw Food SOS: Troubleshooting on the Raw Food Diet
      Four years Primal with influences from Jaminet & Shanahan and a focus on being anti-inflammatory. Using Primal to treat CVD and prevent stents from blocking free of drugs.

      Eat creatures nose-to-tail (animal, fowl, fish, crustacea, molluscs), a large variety of vegetables (raw, cooked and fermented, including safe starches), dairy (cheese & yoghurt), occasional fruit, cocoa, turmeric & red wine

        Well, as usual Denise has done a bang up job, have to read it all when I get time.

        One thing to look for in these types of studies is that they are NOT STUDIES, they are data mining exercises for publication. Here they are mining the Harvard Nurses and Health Professionals follow-up data. Nothing wrong with that, it's a great way of generating hypothesis. But taken in the context of "hey look we provded something", yeah, not so good. Pretty much crap really. But hey, it's a publish or perish profession, gotta get your name in print somehow.

          also I think primal diet can be done in some many different variations. Very often I see people post pics of their typical meals and all I see is a giant peace of steak covered in butter, with a side a bacon, friend eggs and 2 pieces of broccoli. I personally prefer the version that is high in vegetables with a side of lean mean and preferably fish and healthy fats from avocados, fish oil, coconut oil, nuts. I think it's hard to make any reasonable conclusion because there are so many different variables and so many different variations of the paleo diet.

            Here's the information you don't read.

            High meat eaters feel better, go outside and live their life, and die falling off a cliff doing something awesome.

            Low carb lifestyle to be blamed.

            XD

            Edit:
            If you read it carefully...

            Limitations: Diet and lifestyle characteristics were assessed with some degree of error. Sensitivity analyses indicated that results were probably not substantively affected by residual confounding or an unmeasured confounder. Participants were not a representative sample of the U.S. population.

            Oh really? That just means you did it wrong and your results don't matter. That's ok, you can just assume that what happened proved your agenda. I don't mind.

              Agree, except for the lean meat part. If you source your meat and fish from well-raised (grass-fed, organic, wild, etc) sources, then eat until you are satisfied. Grok had access to this type of meat all year round, while nuts and avocados could only be found in small periods of the year. I don't get why people are afraid of animal fat and think oily fish is much better - they're both excellent (as good?) sources of energy. I'd much rather have a very fatty steak from a well-raised lamb than a fillet of fish that was farmed.

              Vegetables are definitely the way to go, though. While meat makes me the most satisfied of any other food, vegetables (especially raw ie. salad) give you a sense of well-being that is incomparable to anything else. And yeah, way too many variables to consider each in turn. Just focus on a clean, varied diet and you'll be fine.

                I'm not scared of animal fat. But, all in moderation. During grok times, wild game was also very lean. Much leaner than farm raised animals. Even if you go hunting right now, wild game is so different from farmed. And people are forgetting that grok was not able to go into a store and purchase the meal. I believe that accesses to meat and fat greatly depended on a successful kill. Even if you watch some shows on tv now where people live the way Grok did (Aborigine, amazon, etc), meat is very highly priced and hard to come by because it's hard to get a kill in the wild.

                  One last thing. Mortality rates for everybody is 100%. Everyone is going to die.

                  If I die because I'm gonna eat bacon, then my life was worth it.

                  I'm so sick of these vilify red meat articles :-P.

                    From what I've read farm raised animals have a lot more intramuscular fat but wild game isn't "lean" by any stretch of the imagination.

                    I've also read that even modern hunter gatherer types will discard muscle meat in favor of the fattiest parts.

                        Have you ever butchered a deer? Yes, you are correct, it is different, and it may be less fatty. However, there is plenty of fat. But the fat is all under the skin and around the organs, there is very little intermuscular fat on an animal eating it's natural diet. Moreover, I'm willing to bet that in "Grok times" there was even more fat becuase there was more for them to eat that hadn't been paved out of existence. There are stories from just a couple hundred years ago of elk with 50-60 lbs fat humps. You'll also find a similar hump on old bucks. Does carry more intercavity fat.

                          I would have to agree that the fat placement is going to be different, just using logic. Most hunting is done in areas where the winters are harsh and vegetation is scarce during that time of year. Animals would need a layer of fat to stay warm and to live off of when the grasses were covered in snow. Modern cattle, etc. wouldn't have that problem.
