Eating a Mediterranean diet can reduce risk for developing diabetes

Eating a Mediterranean style diet can help reduce a person's risk for developing diabetes even without exercise or losing weight.

Researchers assigned a group of older patients at high risk for heart disease into a Mediterranean diet group and a low fat diet group. None of the patients had calorie restrictions or requirements.

After four years, people on the Mediterranean diet, which includes eating nuts, fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and fish, were less likely to have Type 2 Diabetes compared to those on a low fat diet.
