Health Benefits of a Low-Carbohydrate, High-Saturated-Fat Diet by Cardian Surgeon Dr Donald W Miller, Jr Paul Kayley .com: Health Benefits of a Low-Carbohydrate, High-Saturated-Fat Diet Heart in Hand
For optimum health and weight maintenance, the ideal caloric ratios for the three macronutrients are carbohydrates, 10—15 percent; protein, 15—25 percent; and fat, 60—70 percent of calories. Among the different kinds of fats, saturated fats and monounsaturated fats (olive oil) are good; polyunsaturated fats, except for omega-3 and (a small amount of) omega-6 essential fatty acids, are bad, especially industrially processed vegetable oils; and trans fats are terrible. Saturated animal fat is best obtained from grass-fed beef and pastured chickens, along with nitrate-free, additive-free bacon and sausage; and seafood from wild (not farm-raised) fish.
