In a series of pioneering studies using crude indices of insulin action and limited subject numbers (only one in an often quoted paper!), Himsworth linked high levels of fat intake with insulin resistance, and conversely, improved insulin action with predominantly carbohydrate diet. However, the link was tenuous and… CONTINUE READING
