The low-acid diet Michael Phelps adopted in July to lower his blood pressure and improve his fitness could also be a way to boost his overall health, according to a new study.
The study, published in the New England Journal of Medicine, suggests that a low-calorie diet could actually lower the risk of heart disease and other conditions, including cancer.
Phelps, who will be inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame in 2021, began the low-carb diet in early August after suffering from high blood pressure, a condition that could worsen with age.
The diet has been praised by doctors and athletes around the world, who have said it can help people lose weight and control their blood sugar.
But in recent weeks, Phelps’ health has taken a downward turn, with a spike in heart problems and a recent hospitalization.
He’s been in a medically induced coma since his arrest in January.
Petersen, Phelps’s former personal trainer, said that while it’s not yet clear how his diet could help, he has been encouraging people to follow it.
Parsons diet was based on a low sodium diet, and the researchers said that, in addition to lowering the pH of his blood, he also lowered the salt intake.
Pets are also unlikely to be harmed by the diet, as long as they get enough exercise and eat their favorite foods, including meat, nuts and fish, the researchers wrote.
The diet’s low-sodium content also reduces the risk that the dieters stomach acid could damage their intestines, which would be bad news for the athletes.
Pairs of dogs on a diet would likely suffer the same fate, the scientists said.
“The diet has the potential to provide a safe, low-cost way to lower blood pressure in healthy adults,” the authors wrote.
Piles of bacon and hot dogs might not sound like a healthful way to eat, but they could be one of the most popular foods in the world.
The authors of the study noted that low-fat dairy products are often used to make low-glycemic foods, but that high-fat milk is also considered a low carb diet.
