After my wife's doctor prescribed insulin shots to control her Type 2 diabetes, we began a regime of NO CARBS, producing a metabolic state called ketosis. Within weeks her weight dropped and her A1C dropped dramatically,
The ketogenic diet is a very low-carb, high-fat diet.
It involves drastically reducing carbohydrate intake and replacing it with fat. This reduction in carbs puts your body into a metabolic state called ketosis.
This is similar to the so called Atkins diet plan which starts off with little to no carbs and slowly increases carb intake over time.
For me, reality beats hype every time.
One study suggested that: Type 2 diabetes is caused by fat accumulating in the pancreas.
