ABSTRACT
The ultimate goal in treating type 2 diabetes is to restore insulin function by overcoming insulin resistance. The diet most commonly recommended for the prevention and treatment of heart disease is the American Heart Association 'heart-healthy' or 'prudent' diet that comprises less than 30 percent of calories from fat, 10 percent from saturated fat, and 300 mg. cholesterol daily. Very-low-fat vegetarian diets and vegan diets have been shown to be powerful allies in preventing and treating heart diseases.
