Low-carb diet is best for those with diabetes?
A low-carb diet can significantly lower insulin and glucose levels according to a recent study published in the journal 'Diabetologia'.

61 diabetics were assigned to both low-fat and low-carb diets for a period of 6 months. The low-carb group were much more efficient at managing glucose than the low-fat group.

Also, the low-carb group ate generous amounts of fat yet their cholesterol levels were not affected and they generally lost weight.

Science is finally starting to expose the low-fat myth.
I agree. I think, however, that everything affects everyone differently, so perhaps the low-fat concept works for some and the low-carb concept may work better for others.

I disagree, carbohydrates will trigger an insulin response in all of us because carbohydrates are converted to glucose in all of us. The modern diet is high in carbohydrates and this is what is causing diabetes. Restricting carbohydrates will prevent diabetes.
