Diabetes is on the rise across the globe, especially within the aging sector. Changing unhealthy diet and lifestyle “default” habits are an effective means of preventing, managing, and even reversing type 2 diabetes. The current trend in clinical nutrition recommendations involve calorie-counting, portion control, and carbohydrate restriction, including those found in fruits and vegetables. However, after assessing diets from many different populations, worldwide, scientific research studies have determined that the most effective diets, in reducing blood sugar and cholesterol, and improving insulin sensitivity, are low-fat, plant-based, whole foods diets. This pamphlet is intended for a general audience (8th grade reading level) with type 2 diabetes, as an aid in helping make the change from the standardized low-carbohydrate, animal-food-based diet to an alternative low-fat, plant-powered dietary approach.
