Another low-carb myth… busted!
Sometimes, the best thing to do when you go low-carb is keep your mouth shut — because the moment people find out you’re on the protein train, they try to derail you by repeating every myth and outright lie they’ve ever heard about the diet.
And there are plenty of them — like this one that’s bound to come up sooner or later: A low-carb diet is bad for your kidneys.
If your kidneys could talk, they’d thank you for going on a diet of all-natural animal fats and proteins — because they’ll no longer have to work overtime filtering out all the toxins that come from a modern garbage diet high in processed junk.
It’s the best thing that’s ever happened to your kidneys, and the latest research in theClinical Journal of the American Society of Nephrology proves that going low-carb won’t hurt them.
In fact, there were no differences at all in kidney function in any of the 307 patients put onto either a low-fat or low-carb diet. None at all. The low-carb patients had completely normal kidneys in every way — including no problems with filtration rates, kidney stones, and blood electrolytes.
Another myth, busted — but it’s one thing to simply not hurt the kidneys, as the new study found.
It’s quite another to actually help them, and other studies have shown that going low-carb can do just that. In one study last year, the diet actually reversed kidney damage in diabetic mice.
No surprise. Obesity and diabetes are what hurt kidneys — and the healthy animal proteins you’ll enjoy as part of a low-carb diet will shrink your gut, prevent diabetes, protect your heart, and help your kidneys… all at the same time.
Now that’s how you diet.
