This dietary approach is considered the traditional one. Fat provides nine calories per gram while carbohydrates and protein each provide four calories per gram. Therefore, a low-fat diet can help people reduce weight or maintain a healthy weight and this in turn can help achieve normal blood glucose levels as it reduces the resistance to insulin that a lot of people with type 2 diabetes have.
A low-fat diet is one that restricts fat, which in turn also restricts saturated fat and cholesterol as well. Low-fat diets are intended to reduce the occurrence of conditions such as heart disease.
This diet suits a lot of people as basic staple foods like bread, potatoes, rice and pasta and cereals can still be consumed.
