Low-carb diets raise cholesterol

Eating a low-carb diet can raise total cholesterol, especially if the carbohydrates are replaced with animal proteins and fats, such as with the Keto Diet. This is according to a study published in the Journal of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. Korean adult women who consumed a low-carb diet were as much as 36 percent more likely to have high cholesterol.

Korean women who consumed a low-carb diet had a 36% higher risk of high cholesterol.

The traditional Korean diet is one of the healthiest diets in the world, high in carbohydrates and low in fat and protein.

According to the authors, over the past 50 years there has been a shift towards a Western diet, with higher consumption of meat and fat and a reduction in carbohydrates.

This shift has resulted in an increase in obesity, dyslipidemia and chronic diseases.
