Is A Low-Carb Diet Good For Diabetes?


If you have type two diabetes, figuring out what to eat can feel overwhelming and confusing.

There are so many options

Some people say that you need to just eat less calories.

Others say to go plant-based.

Still more will tell you a carnivore diet is the way to go.

But what does the science say?

What The Science Says

Dozens of studies have shown that eating a low-carb diet is perhaps the most effective way to naturally reduce blood sugar levels for those with type 2 diabetes.

The reason for this is really quite simple: carbs are digested and turned into glucose, or sugar.

When you consistently eat a lot of carbs, you end up having a lot of sugar in your body. If you always have a lot of sugar in your body, then you have chronically high blood sugar. And when you have chronically high blood sugar, you have diabetes.

Fortunately for us, the opposite is also true.

By eating a low carb diet you can naturally reduce the amount of sugar entering your body, and over time that can lead to lower blood sugar levels.

If you can lower your blood sugar levels, you can beat diabetes.

The Low-Carb Challenge

While studies have shown that a low-carb diet is effective for managing diabetes, the challenge for many is that they can be very difficult to follow.

Carbs make up 60-70% of the foods we typically eat each day, and cutting them out can be confusing.

That's exactly why we made Type2Diet Low Carb Meal Replacement Shakes.

Each shake is designed to replace a full meal, but has just 2g of net carbs.

By drinking 1-2 shakes in place of 1-2 meals each day, it's possible to cut out up to 90% of the carbs from your diet, without having to worry about counting macronutrients or spending hours on complicated meal prep.
