I have also read a number of articles based on Prof Tim Noakes' new approach. As a dietitian, I am not in favour of any diets that cut out whole food groups. A carb-free diet can lead to deficiencies and increase the risk of heart disease. Diabetics should consult a registered dietitian for an individual diet prescription and Not start using a high-protein diet which can lead to exposure to high levels of fat, saturated fat and cholesterol.
