Dr. Barnard talks about a study he was involved with involving 99 people and the vegan group had 3 times lower A1C levels..this is the standard blood test gauging blood sugar over some months.
Dr. Barnard suggests the fat in meat and dairy are the causes of insulin resistance and not the carbohydrates who have been the “culprits” in most “authorities” on the subject.
Dr. Barnard says the lower cholesterol numbers equate to better health stats.
If carbs are not the reason for weight gain, then why do the Paleo people loose considerable weight on meat and veggies?
He suggests anyone going Vegan for just three weeks will notice improvements and weight loss that will be impressive.
