Not to mention, their HA1C levels dropped by nearly a point in the ketogenic diet group which was significantly better than the low-calorie group, only in the same
time period. These findings aren’t too surprising as the Standard American Diet (SAD) includes hundreds of high-glycemic, processed carbohydrates per day. When carbohydrates and sugar are drastically reduced, weight loss happens
