High Protein Diets

My friend, who is not a young woman, took it into her head to go on a high protein diet. Her system has been in havoc and she has felt tired, ill  and less and less healthy. She has upset her electrolyte balance and even now, 5 days after coming off it , she is struggling to get her health back. Extreme diets are not something which can be managed easily and certainly older people need to be aware that their bodies can be put into such a state of chaos if they do not eat a balanced diet. This site offers some explanations but medical professionals and dietitians need to keep up the messages of a balanced food intake.
