    High Fat diet causes insulin resistance??

    Are these guys saying that High Fat diets cause insulin resitance?

    Dietary fat has long been considered a potentially important modifiable risk factor for diabetes. The evidence for an adverse effect of high total fat and high saturated fat intake on blood glucose levels in nondiabetic populations is quite consistent, whereas the evidence for an effect of polyunsaturated fat intake is less clear (
    1). Positive associations have been found between the risk of type 2 diabetes or hyperglycemia and total fat intake in both prospective (2,3) and cross-sectional (4,5) studies. Positive associations have also been found with saturated (3,6,7) and animal (8) fat and meat (9) intake. A positive association was reported between polyunsaturated fat intake and hyperglycemia in the Hoorn Study (10), although a reduced risk of type 2 diabetes was associated with increased vegetable fat intake (11) and polyunsaturated fat intake (12) in the U.S. Nurses’ Health Study. Eating fish, which is high in n-3 polyunsaturated fat, has a beneficial effect on glycemia (13,14). In a number of other studies, there were no reported associations with dietary fat intake (15,16,17,18,19).

    i've been attending a diabetes class offered by the local seventh day adventist wellness clinic. they 'preach' that a diet high in animal fat is one of the leading causes of t2. they believe that the fat 'coats' the insulin receptors and blocks the insulin from opening up the cell so that glucose can enter.
    they also say that by eating a vegan diet, along with exercise, a person can 'reverse' their t2 diabetes since this will 'cleanse' the body of that unwanted fatty coating on the insulin receptors.
    needless to say, i'm not quite ready to switch to totally vegan. but i will continue to eat more veggies

    needless to say, i'm not quite ready to switch to totally vegan. but i will continue to eat more veggies Yep, I eat mostly vegatable fats(nuts, peanut butter, avocado, olive oil,olives) but I do like cheese. Tuna, chicken, fish.
    I have read that it blocks the receptors too. Thanks for mentioning that.
