Supports Chapter 14: The metabolic syndrome and the glycaemic index; and Chapter 20: Diabetes deceit
If you want a long and healthy life, without diseases such as diabetes with its wide range of complications, you need to ensure stability in blood sugar and insulin levels. This means that foods such as meat, fish, eggs and green vegetables, which don't disrupt blood sugar (and therefore insulin) levels, are the ones you should eat.
This concept of controlling carb intake is not considered 'healthy' by the establishment, who want to profit from diabetes. But its not just relevant for diabetics, but also for those who would prefer not to develop diabetes.
A recent study tested the effects of low-carb and low fat (and higher carb) diets in a group of obese adolescents aged 12-18.it showed that the high-fat, low carbohydrate diet out-performed the low fat one in critical areas: insulin levels were lower in those eating a lower carb diet; as was insulin resistance and beta-cell exhaustion.
In other words, those adolescents on a lower carb diet saw improvements in their biochemistry which would, generally speaking, put them at reduced risk of developing type 2 diabetes over time.
This evidence is in line with other research which has found that the consumption of blood sugar-disruptive 'healthy' carbohydrate-based diets arer associated with an increased risk of diabetes.
