There is no reason to fear fat anymore. High fat food is even good for diabetics, according to a new high-quality Swedish study of 61 patients:
- Diabetes patients randomized to a high fat (20% carb) diet improved their blood sugar, cholesterol and could reduce their diabetes medications.
- Patients randomized to conventional (obsolete) low fat advice did not improve anything.
No surprises. Previous trials have shown similar results: Fat is good for the health of diabetics. So why do most diabetics still get the failed old low fat advice? By now it should be borderline criminal.
