Low-fat vegan diets: how to reverse type 2 diabetes

It is well established that switching to a vegan diet can yield remarkable results in your health. In fact, it can reverse type 2 diabetes. In one of the first ground-breaking studies, 197 men with type 2 diabetes switched to a low-fat, vegan diet and after just three weeks, 140 of them were able to discontinue their medication! (Barnard et al, 1994.) Several studies followed, each of them testing the effects of a vegan, low-fat diet that emphasises foods with a low glycaemic index (they release sugars slowly) and all of them came to the same conclusion – that this type of diet is more effective than any other diet and even some medication (Powell, 2011). This is great news as it means we can all take steps to prevent or reverse type 2 diabetes.
