Since 1980's, on the back of a FUDGED study by Ancel Keys, started the LOW FAT "FAD DIET". Yes it is a FAD diet because when you remove FAT and Add sugar it becomes UNNATURAL and FAD -- not BALANCED & HEALTHY as some would want us to believe.
Let's keep the "FAD" part aside for some other day.
Diabetes population has increased from 4.7% in 1980 to 8.5% this year. So, what's so scientific about this LOW FAT theory? It's a big nonsense to anyone who analyses the data with a NON SPONSORED mind. Time and again, one or more nonsense was pushed to cover the MESS that this nonsensical diet has been creating over the years. This diet being labelled as healthy despite the failures is something like following being called a "scientific study"
Failed Theories -- BMI (useless as it doesn't even look at muscle mass), calorie-in calorie-out (again a JUNK theory mainly pushed at the behest of food industry), eat less walk more (a FAILED Hypo Caloric diet theory) -- were pushed to cover this nonsensical diet as it made more and more population became OBESE and SICK. Absolutely nothing improved except the profits and sales of DRUG and Food industry.
Type 2 diabetes in particular starts with over supply of INSULIN but no expert ever looks at fasting insulin before starting treatment. This results in a type 2 pushed to insulin shots rather quickly and in addition a plethora of drugs for BP, LIPIDS etc are also added.
We have seen worse case diabetics drop drugs or insulin drastically on dumping the HORRIBLE High carb Low fat diet and switching to LCHF diet. Despite lower drugs and lower insulin they start achieving great numbers. No calories counting, no mindless walking, no BMI theory at play. Just EAT LESS CARBS as Diabetes is all about not being able to handle CARBS. Oh BTW, there's no proof that LCHF diet is bad for heart. If you have one, please show -- not the ANCEL KEYS study please
Feeding HIGH CARBS to diabetic is like telling an alcoholic to booz a shot more and then cover with some drugs to protect (if it does at all) the liver. Highly UNSCIENTIFIC and morally PATHETIC.
