What is better: the high protein diet approaches put forth by books like "The Zone," "Protein Power," the Atkins Diet -- they all promise great things for diabetics and a lot of their arguments make sense to a lay person. the ADA-approved diets seem to have a lot more carbs in them. This is in reference to a newly diagnosed Type 2, age 42, (with a lot of weight to lose) who would rather eat the ADA way but has read so much she is completely confused!


In my opinion the ADA way makes more sense, especially if you are trying to lose weight. It is difficult in reality to eat higher protein without higher fat.
