The mainstream medical community is starting to take notice: High-protein diets work! Researchers at the University of Minnesota say a high-protein diet lowers after-meal blood glucose 40 percent in type 2s and improves overall glucose control.
However, they say longer-term studies are necessary “to determine the total magnitude of response, possible adverse effects and the long-term acceptability of the diet.”
The researchers arrived at their conclusion after 12 untreated type 2s consumed a high- and low-protein diet for five weeks each, separated by a two- to five-week washout period.
The ratio of protein to carbohydrate to fat was 30:40:30 in the high-protein diet and 15:55:30 in the control diet.
