Diets “Miracle” high protein: Three reasons why they fail
The American essayist H. L. Mencken once said that “for every complex problem there is a simple solution – and is wrong.” His observation is still appropriate when applied to the current fashion of miracle diets.
Weight loss involves many factors, including caloric intake, exercise habits and beliefs about a “right” way of eating. Facing this dilemma, many people seek a simple fix. The authors of bad diets respond quickly, their ideas circulating through popular books, lectures and talks.
High protein diets share common claims
The books that promote low-calorie diets rich in protein and are currently the “hottest”. For example, The Energy of Proteins, Merge on The Zone, The Revolutionary Diet Dr. Atkins and The 5 Day Miracle Diet.
While plans differ in details, they share some statements:
Myth # 1: If we eat too much carbohydrate, we have too much insulin in our body. Excess insulin puts us in what one writer calls “the hell of carbohydrate. It is supposedly the result of increased heart disease, cancer, arthritis, and a large number of health problems.
Myth # 2: Humans originally enjoyed a high protein diet. Our genetic bodies “tuned” to this way of eating.
Myth # 3: You can quickly and permanently lose weight by consuming more protein and eating too few carbohydrates.
In sum, these diets say “hello meat, poultry, fish, and eggs and goodbye fruits, vegetables, and grains.”

* Insulin is a hormone that moves glucose from the bloodstream into cells of the body. Therefore, insulin is crucial to human health, releasing the energy we need to continue our daily lives.
* Even if we accept to avoid some kind of argument, that human nutrition is focused on proteins once during a period that does not mean that diets high in protein are the most optimal for our health, especially because we live longer than our ancestors and have more time to accumulate fat. Foods high in protein are probably the most high in cholesterol and saturated fats – substances that can promote heart disease and various cancers.

Associate the idea of healthy diet that helps keep us young and healthy, a long list of grilled fish boring and bland steamed vegetables, all washed down with huge water bottles.
