Not sure that this is a truly Mediterranean diet. My mother was from Italy in the region south of Rome. Her people ate carbs (pasta, bread, etc.), but in reasonable quantities. For example, pasta was a side dish, not a full dinner plate. Veal was a staple. In the old country, veal is cheap and plentiful, and they don't have PETA raising a ruckus. Mom didn't have diabetes and she was never overweight.

I am on the isagenix program

I have lost 20 pounds in 15 days
been on it 3 weks and am putting on lean muscle again, too
I hope to lose 100 pounds in the next 4 months

I lost 3% OF MY BODYFAT ALREADY

I feel better than on any of these diets

while I reccomend a low carb diet, if you want to lose FAT, you need a cellular detox diet like ISAGENIX, and I can set you up :)

It aint cheap, but it works, it uses un-denatured protein from beef that are grass fed, not corn fed, so, no growth hormones or biogenetically engineered foods

and I mean it :)

go to youtube, search for isagenix and blood

The devil is in the details in these kind of studies. What raises red flags for me is how little weight was lost on the low carb diets. This suggests they didn’t really study low carb diets but rather “lowered” carb ones.

Also fruits are very high carb but they’re not all alike. What exactly were the carb loads of the various diets? The abstract isn’t all that revealing. Hopefully the full study becomes public soon.

Pretty much any diet that focuses on fresh foods, protein, veggies, fruit, good fats, prepared at home is going to be good for you.

Importantly, diabetics should learn about and take several supplements that can help them fend off some of the worst aspects of the disease.

1) Vitamin B-1. Diabetics typically urinate a lot, which results in depletion of albumin. This is responsible for kidney damage. It is also hard on the heart.

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20107192

However, taking a B multivitamin over an extended time may actually be harmful, so stick to B-1.

2) R-Alpha Lipoic Acid (R-ALA)(not just ‘plain’ ALA), has been shown to both limit diabetic peripheral neuropathy, but also to improve circulation in the extremities. This neuropathy and reduced circulation is responsible for most diabetic foot problems.

Guess I’m the only person here who can survive breakfast at Burger King, lunch at McDonalds, sugary snacks in the afternoon and tv dinner at night. Carbs always, no veggies ever. Hate the foods people say are “good for you”. Am not overweight but really don’t want to live forever, anyway. Who would in this world?
