“According to a large review of research done on this topic, in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, higher glycaemic load diets are associated with higher blood pressure, leading the authors to conclude that a lower glycaemic diet may lead to important reductions in blood pressure.”

“Also, protein, as compared to carbs and fat, increases the metabolic rate significantly more, leaving fewer calories available to be stored as excess fat.”
