Lots of Red Meat May Be Tied to Gut Disorder in Men

A new study reported by HealthDay shows that men who eat a lot of red meat may have a higher risk of a painful inflammation of the colon. Known as diverticulitis, this condition can lead to complications such as tears or blockages in the colon.

After many years of studying and reporting on diet habits and health trends, I can affirm that too much protein — much of which is obtained through consumption of red meat — can be detrimental to your health. That’s why I believe that aiming for a diet high in healthy fats, low in net carbs, with moderate amounts of high quality protein is best.

Ideally, you should consume no more than about 1 gram per kilo (2.2 pounds) of lean body mass. You can do this by adopting a high-fat ketogenic diet, meaning a diet high in healthy fats like avocado, coconut oil, butter, olive oil and macadamia nuts, but low in net carbs (total carbs minus fiber), and moderate amounts of high quality protein.

The key to success on a high-fat diet is to eat high-quality healthy fats, not the fats most commonly found in the American diet (the processed fats and vegetable oils used in processed foods and fried restaurant meals). You need to shoot for a 1-to-1 ratio of healthy fats to net carbs plus protein. Low- non-fiber carb diets can also help you shed body fat, improve metabolism, boost energy levels, promote longevity, protect brain function, boost mental clarity, improve athletic performance and more.
