According to recent research conducted as part of Diabetes Australia National Diabetes Week, eating a high protein diet with regular pork intake could be a great way for type 2 diabetes sufferers to lose weight, when combined with resistance exercise .
The research was funded by Australian Pork Limited and the Port Co-operative Research Centre, and conducted by the same researchers that delivered the CSIRO Total Wellbeing Diet.
Research leader Dr. Moakes reportedly said: “High protein lower carbohydrate diets are becoming increasingly popular, but scientific studies in people with type 2 diabetes are sparse. This study has shown that a high protein diet including lean pork plus resistance exercise provides significant health benefits for weight and fat loss and diabetes control. Thiamine is a nutrient abundant in pork. The potential role of thiamine in improving some diabetic complications has been reported.”
