Meal Planning, Food and Diet
Question from Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA:
I wanted to get on the Atkins diet and a health nutritionist at the gym told me that it causes type 2 diabetes. Is that true?
I do not think that your statement is true about a diet causing diabetes. However, the diet plan you are talking about is not specific. A high-protein, low-carbohydrate diet needs to explained in greater detail. Please consult a dietitian from a local hospital or care center that is qualified to work with you in this area.
