Following a high-protein, high-fat and low-carbohydrate diet may have severe health consequences in the long-term, warned the HPCSA.
“A healthy diet remains one that is balanced in terms of carbohydrates, protein and fats as well as vitamins and minerals,” the HPCSA said.
“The best way to reach a healthy balanced way of eating is to follow the South African Food Based Dietary Guidelines.”
Let’s see how the HPCSA Professional Board members are doing health wise, assuming they follow their own, i.e. government dietary advice. All images from the 2009-10 HPCSA annual report.
Here is what Tim Noakes looks like after backing his own research and advice.
Otherwise, see Mark Sisson who has outright rejected government dietary guidelines for some 30 years now to eat like a caveman. He is nearly 60.
If these high level government employees of the HPCSA are following their own, i.e. government dietary guidelines, well, then I don’t need to say any more. Neither does Tim Noakes.
UPDATE: For more information on the caveman diet read Mark’s blog, and take a look at the letter Dr Noakes’ sent out earlier this year from the Department of Human Biology at UCT that contains more information on the paleo/primal/caveman diet (pdf link here)
