The ketogenic diet was developed in the 1920s, originally, as a way to treat epilepsy. Several important side-benefits of the diet turned out to be helpful much more widely than just to the initial small group of epilepsy patients. As you'll see in the Body Reboot book keto diets don't usually restrict calories, but instead, the idea is to adapt the body to using healthy fats for energy, rather than carbohydrates. In fact, people following a keto diet usually aim to consume less than 25 grams of carbs per day! Despite not ‘counting calories,' rapid loss of body fat in overweight patients is common, as is a reduction in chronic inflammation.
It's also typical for people to see their blood-sugar levels drop and remain stable when following a keto diet, and that's the key for people with type 2 diabetes.
A 2013 review found the diet significantly improved blood sugar control, A1c and weight loss — and reduced insulin requirements — in overweight individuals with type 2 diabetes.
It’s important to keep in mind that weight loss requires an individualized approach, and that multiple meal-planning options are safe and effective for people with diabetes.
Naturally, if you're under professional medical care for any disease or condition you should consult your health care practitioner before changing your diet drastically, but research shows that the ketogenic diet, like the one detailed in the Body Reboot book, should be fine with type 2 diabetes.
If you're serious about following a well-researched diet with proven results the Body Reboot book will not only help you get healthier and lose weight without cutting calories, it includes plenty of organized information about what to eat and what to avoid.
