High Protein Sans Low Carb Diets Not Advisable For Pregnant Women

Pregnant women, whose protein intake is high, including meat, leaving behind the low carbohydrate diets are more prone to develop stress, according to a study.

Researchers led by Rebecca Reynolds at the Universities of Edinburgh and Southampton studied a group of 86 children born in 1967-8 to mothers who were told to eat a pound of red meat a day to avoid pregnancy complications.

The study found the more meat the mother ate, the higher were the levels of stress hormone cortisol in the child, the online edition of BBC News reported.

Cortisol is a body hormone that is involved in the response to stress. It increases blood pressure and blood sugar levels and suppresses the immune system.
