More than 40 clinical trials with more than thousands of participants have proved that low-carb diets are the safest and the most successful way to lose weight, especially for those who fight with diabetes.
When we talk about diabetes, the future doesn’t look so bright - one in three Americans could be diagnosed with diabetes by 2050. The American Diabetes Association and 45 different international scientific and medical societies recommend bariatric surgery as a standard option to treat diabetes. But experts, Sarah Hallberg and Osama Hamdy said for New York Times "it's time to give (the low-carb diet) a second look."
Bariatric surgery is a weight-loss procedure that usually costs around $26,000 and involves binding, stapling and even removing a part of the stomach. Approximately, 17% of patients experience complications after the surgery. Plus, many insurance plans won’t cover the cost of the procedure, and there are many additional costs such as post-operative visits.
As Hallberg and Hamdy say, there are much safer and cheaper options such as eating less glucose by eating fewer carbs. Those who eat healthy fats and proteins instead of carbs stay full longer and don’t eat as much, which leads to losing weight. Low-carb diets are useful for anyone trying to lose weight, especially for those who suffer from diabetes.
