Manage Diabetes by Limiting Saturated and Trans Fats

Filed Under: Diabetes, Blood Sugar

Excess fat, particularly saturated fats from meat and whole dairy products and trans fats found in processed and most fast foods, can wreak havoc on your body.

As early as the 1920s, it was demonstrated that a high-saturated fat diet not only causes weight gain, but also decreases insulin sensitivity.

A more recent British study also found that cutting back on saturated fats in meat and whole dairy makes it easier to maintain blood sugar in people dealing with diabetes. So, if you want to maintain a healthy weight and better manage blood sugar levels, try to eliminate these foods from your diet.
