Do they really link low-insulin diets with good things? Or is it yet another baseless confounding factor? A "low insulin" diet would also be a diet free of grains, legumes, most processed foods (cake, cookies, crackers, frozen pasta dinners, etc) which also tend to be laced with seed oils, and due to limited menu options, probably more home-cooked meals. They also tend to be richer in meats and vegetables, which everyone seems to agree is healthier.
