In early December physicians at the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center issued a warning about the dangers of so-called "synthetic marijuana"--and its contribution to kidney failure. Joining the physicians at a news conference was the mother of a fifteen year old Mustang student that had used the product and had to be hospitalized.
Research finds low-carb diets aren’t associated with having a healthy weight
A study by a University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center researcher finds the secret to staying lean hinges on eating foods not only lower in calories but also high in nutrients.
While high-protein and low-carbohydrate diets may promote short-term weight loss, the study indicates that lean people who are not dieting don’t tend to follow these types of eating plans.
“These population-based findings lend no support to the value of low-carbohydrate diets for maintaining normal body weight,” the study states.
High-nutrient foods tend to be higher in fiber so they keep you satisfied longer, said primary investigator Christina Shay, Ph.D., an assistant professor of biostatistics and epidemiology in the OU College of Public Health.
