Atkins diet has been around for many years as one of the most popular diets. In my view, a diet that has lasted for so long must have merits and conclusive outcomes. However, the professional opinions and research evidence of the health hazards ,in particular cancer and cardiovascular diseases, posed by the high consumption of proteins and fats advocated by the Atkins diet has definitely altered my belief in Atkins as a safe weight-loss diet.
2. How do you feel about the news that the Dietary Guidelines panel recommends removing dietary cholesterol warnings from the Dietary Guidelines set to release this year? Do you find it frustrating how frequently a food or a nutrient one day is bad for you and the next is no longer a concern? What do you feel is the best approach to eating healthy when dietary recommendations change so often?
Both the food manufacturers and consumers are to blame for the consumption of trans fats. Despite the research findings of several studies taking a common position that there is a direct correlation between consumption of trans fats and increased risk of heart diseases, some manufacturers have continued to use partially hydrogenated oils( the major source of artificial trans fats) in processed foods. In this regard the manufacturers have been the main promoters of the consumption of the unsafe trans fats. Consumers on the hand have promoted the consumption of trans fats and predisposition to the inherent cardiovascular risks by continuing to purchase products explicitly stated as containing trans fats on their packaging despite being in the public knowledge that trans fats are no longer generally recognized as safe for use in human food.
