There is no reason to fear fat anymore. High fat food is even good for people with diabetes, 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 people with diabetes. So why do most people with diabetes still get the failed old low fat advice? By now it should be borderline criminal.
