Default Diet study: American Diabetes Association vs. Low Carb Ketogenic

Diet study: American Diabetes Association vs. Low Carb Ketogenic | The poor, misunderstood calorie

A randomized pilot trial of a moderate carbohydrate diet compared to a very low carbohydrate diet in overweight or obese individuals with type 2 diabetes mellitus or prediabetes (Saslow et al., 2014)


The most important finding of this study, and the one people should be talking about (in my opinion): 7 out of 11 keto dieters (64%) were able to reduce their anti-diabetic medications, whereas only 2 out of 13 low fat dieters did (15%).
