The HPCSA has conveyed its concern to the current spate of individuals promoting the following of a high-protein, high fat and low carbohydrate diet – cautioning that these particular weight loss programs come with serious health repercussions for individuals who adhere to over the long term. The council revealed that as the focus falls on National Nutrition Week, numerous South Africans are making the effort to get rid of the winter kilos and cautioned individuals not to be influenced by mass media reports recommending pricey high protein and saturated fat diets in addition to long term unhealthy and harmful consequences. Research conducted recently and published in the British Medical Journal discovered that low carbohydrate-high protein diets which are followed on a regular basis over a long period are linked to elevated risks of cardiovascular disease.


The research and numerous studies have shown that a 20g reduction in daily carbohydrate intake and a 5g rise in daily protein intake would correspond to a 5% increase in the overall likelihood of cardiovascular disease. The best way to reach a healthy balanced way of eating, is to follow the South African Food Based Dietary Guidelines,” she explains.
