Dr. Clare Bailey, a general practitioner for 30 years, recently wrote:
The standard dietary advice for diabetics was always to eat a low-fat diet with plenty of starchy carbohydrates such as rice, bread, potatoes and cereals. But these carbs convert into sugars almost as quickly as eating refined sugar, and over the past 40 years of eating that way diabetes and obesity have continued to soar.
However, a Mediterranean diet (one containing plenty of vegetables, whole grains and pulses, along with food rich in natural fats such as olive oil, nuts, avocado and oily fish, and relatively low in sugar and starchy carbs) has been proven to halve your risk of heart disease and reduce the risk of diabetes and strokes. And it’s easier to stick to.
