Fewer calories to reduce the risk of diabetes

According to a recent study led by Dr. Nita Forouhi, a researcher at the Metabolic Science Institute (in Cambridge, Great Britain), adults who tend to consume foods with the highest amount of calories they have a 60% higher risk of developing type 2 diabetes .


The Forouhi team evaluated the 12 consecutive years of type 2 diabetes (or of adult emergence) in almost 22,000 patients from 40 to 79 years old, who did not suffer from diabetes, cancer or cardiovascular disease.

However, the data on food that were obtained over the years, showed that what they consumed the most energy-hungry food (therefore, more caloric) averaged 2,592 calories per day with 36.6% fat.

Consuming fewer calories reduces the risk of diabetes

This group consumed a greater number of soft drinks with gas and meat, and lower levels of fruits fresh, vegetables and Water , and even another type of healthy calorie-free drinks.

However, those who followed diets with lower energy consumption averaged 1,539 calories per day, with 29% fat and tended to eat more fresh fruits, vegetables and calorie-free beverages, and less sugary soft drinks and meat.

It was found that more than 700 people developed type 2 diabetes among those who had consumed the most caloric diets, with a 60% higher risk of suffering from the disease.
