    Sadly, I think that is me. I do have to confess though that I absolutely love double cream and did have way way too much of it.

    The point being made is not eating indiscriminate amounts of fat but the fat that comes with the protein.

    Many would say that adding extra fat can be problematic but eating single ingredient foods and avoiding carbs is what helps the most.

    Here is a recent study that investigates if there is any genetic association to IR for T2D

    A very interesting study, thanks for posting it. I need to read it more carefully but for others this extract from the conclusion should provide the gist.
    This genetic predisposition ultimately limits the ability to compensate for insulin resistance. Some individuals who remain lean and fit may never develop diabetes or may do so at a very old age because of progressive deterioration in β-cell function. In others who become insulin resistant because of weight gain, physical inactivity, high-fat diets, medications, etc., and are at risk of developing type 2 diabetes, age of onset and severity of diabetes will be determined by the balance between the ability of the β-cell to compensate and the degree of insulin resistance.
    (No doubt some will take issue with the mention of a high fat diet).

    Interesting, I have noticed that references in studies to high fat diets often, when looking at the studies themselves, involves carbs and fats together, mainly seed oils as the fats. So really the high fat referred to is high carbs and fat.
