It found that individuals assigned to eat high-fat 41 percent calories from fatMediterranean-style diets for nearly five years were about 30 percent less likely to experience serious heart-related problems compared with individuals who were told to avoid fat.

Below is my letter to the editor of The New England Journal of Medicine that they published about this study: For example, in the OmniHeart trial she cited, the group that was asked to consume 10 percent more protein emphasized plant proteins, not animal protein.

The diet I recommend is low in refined carbohydrates and low in harmful fats including trans fats, hydrogenated fats and some saturated fats and low in animal protein particularly red meat but includes beneficial fats including omega-3 fatty acidsgood carbs including fruits, orhish, whole grains, legumes and soy in their natural, unrefined forms and good proteins predominantly plant-based.

She completely misrepresents my recommendations: Here’s a blog in which I addressed this issue: Twenty-eight were assigned to his low-fat, plant-based diet and 20 were given usual cardiac care. This is not surprising, since researchers gave the ornisn group little support in following this diet during much of the study.

Retrieved 3 March Second, there was no statistically significant difference in either systolic blood pressure or diastolic blood pressure after one year in comparing the groups. For the past 37 years my colleagues and I at the nonprofit Preventive Medicine Research Institute, in collaboration with leading scientists and medical institutions, have published a series of randomized controlled trials and demonstration projects showing that comprehensive lifestyle changes may slow, stop and often reverse the progression of many chronic diseases.
