Vegan Diet Best For
Diabetes Patients - Diabetics Benefit More From Vegetarian Low Fat Foods
July 27th 2006
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.
