The researchers agreed that no specific fat to carbohydrate
ratio is best for everyone, and that an overall high-quality diet that is low in sugar and refined grains will help most people maintain a healthy weight and low chronic disease risk.
'Fad diets often lead people to fear carbohydrates
. But the research continues to show that healthy carbohydrates
- from fruits, vegetables, beans, and whole grains - are the healthiest fuel for our bodies,' said lead author Hana Kahleova, Director at the organisation.

The findings also suggest that while replacing carbohydrates
with animal-based proteins and fats from foods like beef, lamb, pork, chicken and cheese was associated with a greater risk of mortality, eating more plant-based proteins and fats from foods such as vegetables, legumes and nuts was linked to lower mortality.
Seidelmann, M.D., from Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston, and colleagues examined the correlation between carbohydrate
intake and mortality among 15,428 adults aged 45 to 64 years in four U.S.
Dr Ian Johnson, emeritus fellow at the Quadram Institute Bioscience in Norwich, said: "The national dietary guidelines for the UK, which are based on the findings of the Scientific Advisory Committee on Nutrition, recommend that carbohydrates
should account for 50% of total dietary energy intake.

"A decrease in fat intake automatically led to an increase in carbohydrate
consumption and our findings may explain why certain populations such as South Asians, who do not consume much fat but consume a lot of carbohydrates
, have higher mortality rates," Mahshid Dehghan, the study's lead author, said in a (https://www.eurekalert.org/pub_releases/2017-08/mu-iss082517.php) press release.
