Why low-carbohydrate diet can’t help people with insulin resistance.
Here’s a conversation between Dr Neal Barnard and Mastering Diabetes to address the low-carb diet vs low-fat diet debate. As Robby and Cyrus have always been preaching, to manage diabetes effectively you need to get to the root cause, So stop obsessing over carbohydrate restriction. Whether you’re living with type 2, type 1, or prediabetes this explainer is something you don’t want to miss.
So once more, here’s someone from the medical science community to confirm the importance of a low-fat, high-carbohydrate diet.
Here’s what they talk about:
– What is insulin resistance and how does it develop?
– One huge problem with a low-carbohydrate high-fat diet
– How low carb diet worsens insulin resistance
– Other conditions that stem from insulin resistance
– Why low carbohydrate diets are not good quality diets
Neal Barnard, MD, FACC, is an adjunct professor of medicine at the George Washington University School of Medicine in Washington, D.C., and President of the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine.
Dr. Barnard has led numerous research studies investigating the effects of diet on diabetes, body weight, and chronic pain, including a groundbreaking study of dietary interventions in type 2 diabetes, funded by the National Institutes of Health, that paved the way for viewing type 2 diabetes as a potentially reversible condition for many patients. Dr. Barnard has authored more than 100 scientific publications and 20 books for medical and lay readers, and is the editor in chief of the Nutrition Guide for Clinicians, a textbook made available to all U.S. medical students.
