Problem is, a LOW FAT diet, let alone vegan, brings up all sorts of deficiencies, some less apt to be measured by your doctor than others.

1) Vitamin D will not be as effectively absorbed on a low-fat diet. Be sure to supplement and be tested for Vit D levels.

2) B12 (which can be lowered by metformin use, and ALSO by autoimmune disease, pernicious anemia, more common in LADA patients and others with autoimmune D). Symptoms of deficiency may include neuropathy!

3) Iron deficiency anemia, as you mention.

4) Essential fatty acids, most crucial, DHA and EPA. NOT available in flaxmeal omega-3 supplement or vegan foods. After 35 years as an ovo-lacto vegetarian, I have just begun supplementing these essential nutrients, in vegan form, but they too, without adequate lipid intake, might not be properly absorbed!

There are recent articles in PubMed demonstrating that there is no correlation between saturated fat consumption and cardiovascular disease. This, from the conservative Harvard School of Public Health!

Do not fear the fat.

Thanks, Granny!

I am feeling a little defensive about my WOE right now, as my workplace recently had a birthday potluck for me, and I requested low-carb veg, specific dishes. My boss's contempt for my diet was palpable. Her husband has "high cholesterol," and CVD ... and was recently told he is Pre-D.

Well ... guess how he eats? "AMA heart-healthy."

Default Low GI - do not turn to glucose quickly

You are missing the most important point. Low Glycaemic Index foods - not all carbs are the same. Oats and pasta are not the same as some other carbs.
