The surge of interest in higher protein, “low carb” diets has many Australians removing ALL carbohydrates – including whole grains and high fibre grain foods – from their daily diets as a quick fix for weight loss.
Avoiding or restricting good quality carbohydrate foods may increase your health risk, as you may not get all of the nutrients your body needs for health in the short and long term. This was supported by a recent meta-analysis which found that people who followed a low carbohydrate diet in the long term were at a greater risk of an early death.
A recent study of young Australian women supports the benefits of a higher protein (moderate carbohydrate) diet that includes 4 serves of nutrient rich grain foods – like whole grains and high fibre grain foods each day, while delivering a balanced diet.
