    Horrible study. You might be able to access it here: Sign In

    They break it down by gender and country, and it's all over the place. No real pattern at all.

    Also, they state in the main figure legend that the data are NOT adjusted for carbohydrate intake. Which I suspect would also correlate.

    As a "prediabetic type 2" I have been watching my diet and checking to see what get's my blood sugar's up. I can tell you that my levels go into the normal range when I eat a meat and greens diet! If I add fruits or anything slightly sweet I can watch it climb. Diet change and exercise will keep me in the normal range.

    this again?
    As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.

    Every time I hear the dirty word 'exercise', I wash my mouth out with chocolate.

    With time and a little effort you might well be able to thrive with fruits in your diet again. I don't know how long you've been 'low carbing' and I'm certain it's a great first step in turning your health around. I hope though, that you will not give up on having a moderate carb intake eventually.

    Ultimately insulin resistance isn't cured with a low carb diet. It is merely managed. Taking this route too far can actually make you less insulin resistant than you are now.

    Plenty of people around here have been down a similar road 'round here and can help with their observations.

    Again - Congratulations on your progress!

    Eating Fast food burgers qualifies as a high meat diet. Nobody with any sense would argue it's healthy.

    I ate a lot of animal protein when I ate lots of lasagna, sandwiches and cheese fries. Means nothing.
