New Study: Low carb diet with exercise cures Type 2 Diabetes

Here's an article about a pretty big study that supports a lower carb, higher protein diet with exercise for weight loss. There are more details in the link below but here's a quote with the gist of the program used in the study.
The mainstays of the "Why WAIT?" program are a low carb diet and tailored exercise. "We use significant calorie reduction and reduce carbohydrates to 40 percent of calories and increase protein to 30 to 40 percent of calories -- this is key for patients to maintain muscle," Hamdy said. "In addition, we teach patients how to exercise, especially the type and the amount, and make sure it is age-appropriate. This is very important."

Re: New Study: Low carb diet with exercise cures Type 2 Diabetes

Yawn. I mean, come on, not something we didn't know already.

Finally some decent research though. Only thing they forgot to control this time is sleep levels. But at least they took into account 2 of the big 3 (sleep, diet, exercise). Most studies are crap in these regards.

Re: New Study: Low carb diet with exercise cures Type 2 Diabetes

this is something that was never disputed.

As diet and exercise is (has) always been part of the NIDDm aka type 2 aka diet controlled diabetes. Its always taught, enforced. But most people just dont follow the teaching. I have met many people that are simply just watching their intake and exercise patterns resulting in NO medication usage in years. That is a great thing as you know. On the opposite side, many are taking multiple meds to control their levels, and do nothing on their own to management their problem.

before some someone chimes that the study stated they cured it.. re read this portion
The main reason that patients regain weight is that they decrease their protein intake and don't exercise as much. The weight they gain is mostly fat, and visceral fat." THIS RESULTS INCREASED BLOOD SUGAR ONCE AGAIN.

remember that type 2 people ARE producing insulin... it maybe not in suffiecient volume, or quality but they are producing something.
type 1 produce nothing and need to be on the needle for the of their lives.

The joslin people do great things for diabetes, and spend alot of time in education of their patients. But this, annoucement is just promoting their .. weight and exercise plan that are marketing.
"Researchers at the Joslin Diabetes Center report that a 12-week weight-loss program they devised for patients with type 2 diabetes continues to have a positive, long-lasting effect on weight loss 1 year later, long after patients are off on their own."

The big secret here is patient are off on their own... COMPLIANCE AND ADHERENCE ARE THE SOURCE OF SUCCESS.

Re: New Study: Low carb diet with exercise cures Type 2 Diabetes

I'm convinced low carb can do everything from solve poverty to...ok well not that much, but across the board it does do wonders. Mostly because of the whole insulin resistance thing it can help reverse...which is probably the #1 health concern people should have. Haven't been around the boards long (lately) but if you haven't seen this page, it's an excellent resource for all things low carb. (link sfw)

the single most important aspect in successful management of any lifestyle disease is compliance on the part of the person.
