Obesity and type 2 diabetes are increasing in rural and urban regions of South Asia including India. Pattern of fat deposition in abdomen, ectopic fat deposition (liver, pancreas) and also low lean mass are contributory to early-onset insulin resistance, dysmetabolic state and diabetes in Asian Indians. These metabolic perturbations are further exacerbated by changing lifestyle, diet urbanization, and mechanization. Important dietary imbalances include increasing use of oils containing high… 
Nutrition and diabetes in South Asia
TLDR
Determinants, emerging nutrition issues in social context, and some possible solutions for prevention of diabetes are discussed.
Heterogeneity of Dietary practices in India: current status and implications for the prevention and control of type 2 diabetes
TLDR
There is a tendency towards consumption of calorie-dense foods at the cost of food diversity, which may also result in micronutrient deficiencies as well as development of T2D and related metabolic diseases.
Insights on Medical Nutrition Therapy for Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus: An Indian Perspective
TLDR
A step-wise approach to MNT is outlined involving a careful interplay of nutrition assessment, diagnosis, individualization and patient counseling for the success of MNT, which relies on providing accurate, acceptable and appropriate dietary choices for continued patient adherence.
Obesity in South Asia: Phenotype, Morbidities, and Mitigation
TLDR
Obesity in South Asians should be evaluated with ethnic-specific guidelines and prevention and management strategies should be applied early and aggressively.
Dietary pH Enhancement Improves Metabolic Outcomes in Diet-Induced Obese Male and Female Mice: Effects of Beef vs. Casein Proteins
TLDR
The findings demonstrate metabolic benefits of increasing dietary pH using ammonia, while high fat intake per se (not protein source) is the major contributor to metabolic dysfunctions.
Study on food nutrition and association with Diabetes Mellitus

TLDR
Various dietary nutritions and their relationships with diabetes, particularly T2DM are described and epidemiological and experimental findings are expected to provide further insight for controlling and treating diabetes in modern nutritional background.
Abdominal obesity and metabolic syndrome in South Asians: prevention and management
TLDR
Limited research shows culturally tailored lifestyle interventions are effective in preventing and managing MetS and abdominal obesity among South Asians.
Randomized Control Trial for Reduction of Body Weight, Body Fat Patterning, and Cardiometabolic Risk Factors in Overweight Worksite Employees in Delhi, India
TLDR
This multicomponent worksite trial showed a reduction in weight, excess subcutaneous fat, and cardiometabolic risk factors after 6 months of active intervention in overweight Asian Indians.
Contribution of macronutrients to obesity: implications for precision nutrition
TLDR
A novel way to manage excessive body weight is described, prescribing personalized diets with different macronutrient compositions according to the individual’s genotype and/or enterotype, with a focus on the physiological and neuroendocrine aspects.

Effect of a 6-month intervention with cooking oils containing a high concentration of monounsaturated fatty acids (olive and canola oils) compared with control oil in male Asian Indians with nonalcoholic fatty liver disease.
TLDR
Results suggest significant improvements in grading of fatty liver, liver span, measures of insulin resistance, and lipids with use of canola and olive oil compared with control oils in Asian Indians with NAFLD.
Sugar Intake, Obesity, and Diabetes in India
TLDR
There are preliminary data to show that incidence of obesity and T2DM could be decreased by increasing taxation on SSBs, and dietary guidelines for Indians show that sugar consumption should be less than 10% of total daily energy intake, but it is suggested that this limit be decreased.
Requirements of dietary fats to meet nutritional needs & prevent the risk of atherosclerosis--an Indian perspective.
TLDR
To arrive at the fat requirements for Indians, invisible fat and fatty acid compositions were determined in commonly consumed foods and the use of more than one oil is recommended, however, it is necessary to evaluate the long-term health benefits of the recommended oil combinations before permitting commercial preparation and endorsing health claims.
Levels of trans fats in diets consumed in developing economies.
TLDR
Trans fats intake and its level in different products available in developing countries, particularly in South Asia, were reviewed along with information regarding processes involved in the production and possible reduction of trans fats.
Effect of Almond Supplementation on Glycemia and Cardiovascular Risk Factors in Asian Indians in North India with Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus: A 24–Week Study
TLDR
The study findings illustrate that incorporation of almonds in a well-balanced healthy diet leads to multiple beneficial effects on glycemic and CVDs risk factors in Asian Indian patients with T2D.
Effect of high-protein meal replacement on weight and cardiometabolic profile in overweight/obese Asian Indians in North India
TLDR
It is shown that intervention with HPMR may lead to significant weight loss and improvement in obesity measures, metabolic, lipid and inflammatory parameters and hepatic transaminases in overweight/obese Asian Indians.
Body Fat Patterning, Hepatic Fat and Pancreatic Volume of Non-Obese Asian Indians with Type 2 Diabetes in North India: A Case-Control Study
TLDR
In non-obese Asian Indians with type 2 diabetes, sub cutaneous and intra-abdominal obesity, including fatty liver, and pancreatic volume were higher and peripheral subcutaneous adiposity was lower than BMI matched non-diabetic subjects.
Effect of brown rice, white rice, and brown rice with legumes on blood glucose and insulin responses in overweight Asian Indians: a randomized controlled trial.
TLDR
Consumption of BR in place of WR can help reduce 24-h glucose and fasting insulin responses among overweight Asian Indians.
Higher Protein Intake Is Associated with Diabetes Risk in South Asian Indians: The Metabolic Syndrome and Atherosclerosis in South Asians Living in America (MASALA) Study
TLDR
Higher level of protein intake was associated with increased odds of diabetes in this cohort of South Asian Indians, suggesting diet may be a modifiable lifestyle factor in this high-risk ethnic group.
Adipocyte Hypertrophy, Fatty Liver and Metabolic Risk Factors in South Asians: The Molecular Study of Health and Risk in Ethnic Groups (mol-SHARE)
TLDR
South Asians have an increased adipocyte area compared to white Caucasians, which accounts for the ethnic differences in insulin, HDL cholesterol, adiponectin, and ectopic fat deposition in the liver.
