New Study Supports High-Fat Lifestyle for Diabetics.

More and more scientific evidence is demonstrating the benefit of a low carbohydrate, high fat lifestyle.

A recent study compared 2 different diets in overwight diabetic patients.

One group ate the standard recommended diet by the American Diabetes Association (ADA), which was a low-fat, high carbohydrate, restricted calorie diet, as per the USDA dietary guidelines for a “healthy” diet. The group was encouraged to eat a diet that was 45-50% carbohydrates, while restricting calories and fats.

The other group, almost in direct contrast to the ADA diet, was encouraged to eat a a very low carbohydrate, high fat, non calorie-restricted ketogenic diet. Their goal was to reach a state of “ketosis,” defined as a blood beta-hydroxybutyrate level between 0.5 and 3 mM, as measured twice a week at home using blood ketone test strips.

The ADA group lost an average of 5.7 lbs., while the ketogenic diet group lost an average of 12.1 lbs. And the first group ate LESS CALORIES!!

But here is the BEST news:  7 out of 11 ketogenic dieters (64%) were able to reduce their anti-diabetic medications, whereas only 2 out of 13 ADA dieters did (15%).

The ONLY sustainable, healthy choice is to eliminate sugar, avoid wheat and grains, and add BACK healthy fats!!
