Olive Oil Diet Program Is Known To Reduce the Risk of Diabetes

In most cases of health, doctors recommend a zero-fat diet plan to prevent a range of diseases like heart disease and diabetes.

While studies have shown that high-fat diets can increase the risk for certain diseases like cancer and diabetes, it seems that it is the type of fat that matters more than the amount.

These research studies have shown that eating a diet high in monounsaturated fats, such as those found in olive oil and nuts, can help us avoid many serious illnesses.
A Spanish study has shown that type II diabetes risk is almost half-way reduced when a Mediterranean diet rich in olive oil is followed by a low-fat eating plan. Type II diabetes is the most common and preventable type of diabetes.

This analysis is part PREDIMED, which is a long-term nutrition intervention analysis that aims to evaluate the effectiveness of the Mediterranean diet program in the prevention of cardiovascular disease. It is composed of a multidisciplinary team consisting of 16 collections, distributed across seven autonomous Spanish communities.

There were 4-18 participants in the research (none of whom had diabetes). Randomly, each participant was assigned to one of the following:

A Very Low fat diet

Mediterranean Diet Plan with Olive Oil (approximately 1 Liter per Week)
Or perhaps a Mediterranean Diet Plan Nuts (Thirty grams per day).

After four years, 17.9 percent of those who followed the zero fat diet program developed diabetes. Only 10% of those who took the Mediterranean olive oil had the disease.

The prevalence of diabetes decreased by 52 percent after the two MedDiet (olive oil/nut) bands were merged and compared to all the zero-fat groups. It is important to note that the lower total diabetes risk was not dependent on changes in weight or physical activity. The Mediterranean diet plans that were followed are perhaps not calorie restricted.

According to reports, type II diabetes can be avoided by eating a Mediterranean diet rich in olive oil.
