Eating a diet which is low in carbohydrates could knock years off lifespan, a 25 year study suggests.
Food plans which replace carbs with protein and fat, such as the Ketogenic or Atkins, have gained popularity in recent years, and are often endorsed by celebrities such as Gwyneth Paltrow and Kim Kardashian
But new research which has followed 15,400 people since the 1980s found those with low carb diets died an average of four years earlier than those who had moderate intakes. Even people who had high intakes were better off than those who drastically cut out carbohydrates.
