Sidebar: You may wonder why these diets call for lean meats but then olive oil is added.  The answer is that not all fats are alike.  Animal fat, particularly cooked animal fat, is very unhealthy and has been shown to predispose one to diabetes. Olive oil, fish oils and Omega 3 oils, such as those contained in Flax oil, are very healthy and help to prevent and to control diabetes.
