Brief description This project is a clinical study investigating whether an very low carbohydrate, low saturated fat diet provides greater benefits for improving blood glucose control and cardiovascular health compared to a conventional, currently prescribed low fat, high unrefined carbohydrate diet in obese patients with type 2 diabetes. This information will provide the highest quality evidence on which the NHMRC can make dietary recommendations for the optimal management of diabetes.
