Which Is Better for Weight Loss, a Low-Fat Diet or a Low-Carb Diet?
There’s long been debate over whether low-fat or low-carb diets are better for weight loss. Some dieters swear by plans that eliminate grains, fruits and other carbohydrates, while others defend diets that cut down on red meat, dairy and other fatty foods. So who’s right? Both — and neither, according to new research published in JAMA. In a 600-person, year-long study, the two eating styles helped dieters drop almost exactly the same number of pounds — and there didn’t seem to be much rhyme or reason as to who succeeded on which plan, explains study author Christopher Gardner, director of nut...

HealthWatch: Amino Acid Fuels Aggressive Form of Breast Cancer
BOSTON (CBS) – A new study says diet could affect the spread of a deadly type of breast cancer. Researchers at Cedars-Sinai found that an amino acid called asparagine, which is found in many types of food, may fuel tumor cells. When the scientists eliminated asparagine from the diets of mice with “triple-negative” breast cancer, the cancer was less likely to travel to distant sites in the body. Asparagine is found in dairy, beef, poultry, eggs, fish, nuts, whole grains, and asparagus, but most fruits and vegetables are low in asparagine. Does this mean that you should remove all these foods from your diet...

Weekend Recipe: A Healthy Carrot Cake
I designed my healthy carrot cake recipe when I opened The Healthy Chef Café in Avalon Beach in Sydney, Australia. It was a hangout for moms, kids, yogis, supermodels and pro surfers — a place where a variety of people could get nourished and feel great. This cake has over one pound of fresh grated carrot, so it’s packed with goodness and fiber. The large amount of carrots in this recipe also helps to keep the cake moist, which is important due to the longer baking time. When making gluten-free cakes, I find ground almonds make a great replacement for the usual white refined flours that you’ll find...

This Type of Non-Dairy Milk is the Healthiest, Study Says
That almond milk latte may be delicious, but a study just published in the Journal of Food Science and Technology suggests that the trendy beverage also has some drawbacks.

Plant-based “milks” are often marketed as wholesome and appropriate substitutes for the real thing. To find out if these claims measured up, scientists at McGill University in Canada ...
