Vegan Diet Best For Diabetes Patients - Diabetics Benefit More From Vegetarian Low Fat Foods

Vegan Diet Best For Diabetes Patients - Diabetics Benefit More From Vegetarian Low Fat Foods

Vegees Best

Contrary to what the Atkins Diet would recommend, new research shows that people with type 2 diabetes do best with a low-fat vegetarian diet.  Originally Atkins designed his diet to help people with diabetes, but later noticed all of his patients also lost weight.

This new research in the journal Diabetes Care says that people with diabetes should avoid animal products such as meat and dairy.  They also say the vegan diet is superior to the diet recommended by the American Diabetes Association, WebMD reports.

Doctor Neal D. Barnard said "The diet appears remarkably effective, and all the side effects are good ones - especially weight loss and lower cholesterol.  Barnard is chief researcher and adjunct professor of medicine at George Washington University and president of Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine.


The research showed that 43 percent of the diabetics who followed a low-fat vegan diet for 22 weeks reduced their need to take medicine to manage their disease compared to 26 percent who followed the ADA diet.  Barnard adds "I hope this study will rekindle interest in using diet changes first, rather than prescription drugs."

The vegan diet consists of fruits, grains, and legumes. They recommend people on this regimen take vitamin B12 supplements because the diet is deficient in it.
