THE DANGERS OF LOW-CARB DIETS

If you have diabetes, you may have been told at some point to eat a low-carb, high-fat diet, such as the ketogenic diet. While these diets can help normalize blood sugar levels in the short term, they fail to address the underlying cause of type 2 diabetes: insulin resistance. 

This is why people on high-fat diets might experience high blood glucose immediately after eating fruit, whole grains, or other carb-rich foods. “From a biological perspective, this makes perfect sense, because the more fat you eat, the less tolerant of carbohydrates your muscles and liver become,” explain Khambatta and Barbaro in their book Mastering Diabetes. But “fruit is not to blame for elevated blood glucose; it’s the high-fat foods you ate before eating fruit that makes it difficult for your muscles and liver to metabolize glucose effectively.”In the long term, high-fat, low-carb diets also increase the risk of heart disease and premature death from all causes.
