Long-term low-protein, low-calorie diet and endurance exercise modulate metabolic factors associated with cancer risk
I would be happy going on record that I’ve never been a fan of the high-protein type diets, feeling that short term weight loss is traded for long term health. These types of diets will kill you if you stay on them long enough.
That being said, I’m really sorry to find a study supporting my position. But even more importantly, this is yet another study finding that calorie restriction lowers the risk of chronic disease. It is really at the point now that we can no longer deny that our culture’s obsession with larger portion sizes and the accompanying additional calories w/o the additional nutrition are killing us more rapidly then we could imagine.
