Abstract

This study was designed to determine the effects of varying the proportions of carbohydrate, fiber, and fat on metabolic control in Type II diabetes. Ten men, aged 50 to 69 years, with Type II diabetes participated. Four isocaloric diets were consumed for 2 weeks each, with a break of 6 to 14 weeks between diets to ensure no carryover effects. Two of the diets were high in carbohydrate (63% to 65% energy) and low in fat (10% to 12% energy) but differed in their fiber contents (20 vs. 45 gm/day). The other two diets were low in carbohydrate (23% to 27% energy) with either a low or a high fat content (15% vs. 55% energy) and a high or normal protein content (62% vs. 18% energy). The compositio..
