Researchers conducted an experiment to study the effects of the American diet. They recruited six men to eat a 6,000-calories-a-day diet consisting of pizza, hamburgers and other junk food (50% carbs) for a week.
Not surprisingly the men gained weight – on average 3.5 kilos (7.7 pounds). More interestingly every one of the six volunteers developed insulin resistance – an early sign of type 2 diabetes. This effect was apparent after only TWO days.

Constantly eating tons of junk food full of carbs can rapidly lead to type 2 diabetes. Doing the opposite can reverse type 2 diabetes. What’s the opposite? A low-carb diet combined with intermittent fasting.
