Low-Carb Diets Like Keto May Increase the Risk of AFib

A large-scale study of diet and heart complications might make those watching their waistline think twice about foregoing that plate of pasta.

After reviewing thousands of medical records, researchers say they found a connection between low-carb diets and the risk of developing atrial fibrillation (AFib), one of the most common types of irregular heartbeats.

At least 2.7 million people in the United States have been diagnosed with the condition, according to the American Heart Association.

The arrthymia sometimes lasts for a few hours or days. In other cases, it can be ongoing.

People who have AFib often feel nauseated, dizzy, weak, very tired, or short of breath.

Individuals with AFib also are five times more likely to have a stroke and are at risk for a heart attack.

The study’s findings will be presented this weekend at the annual conference of the American College of Cardiology (ACC).

Although trendy weight loss plans such as the ketogenic (keto) and Atkins diets have long touted minimizing calories from grains, legumes, added sugars, and starchy vegetables, the study cautioned against taking these approaches.

I'm not sure if you have GNC stores there, but you can order their products from www.gnc.com or www.drugstore.com. I used Total Lean and along with working out, it helped me to lose weight. Make sure you also take a multivitamin while taking weight
