High Fat Low Carb – Turning The Food Pyramid Upside Down
Low fat; low calorie; low sugar, or should it be low carb? Knowing what to eat these days — especially if you are diabetic — can be hard to work out. And things just got more confusing now it looks as if the food pyramid we grew up with is being turned on its head.
The base of the traditional food pyramid used be piled with bread, grains, rice and pasta, topped with a small amount of fat. But nowadays some leading nutritionists and health researchers say the reverse is best, advocating a high-fat, low-carb diet (LCHF).
And with good reason; eating LCHF may help reduce the symptoms of epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, depression, Parkinson’s disease – and Type 2 diabetes.
Diabetics on LCHF diets in some recent studies have said that eating this way has had a dramatic effect on their blood sugar and health. Many have lost weight and have even been able to discontinue medications.
