Red meat, dairy, and insulin sensitivity: a randomized crossover intervention study

Share This Post


Journal: The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition

Publication Date: 06/2015

Summary: The change in insulin resistance was compared in overweight and obese subjects on a high lean red meat diet, a high low-fat dairy diet without red meat and a control diet without dairy or red meat. Consumption of the high dairy diet led to reduced insulin sensitivity compared to the lean meat and control diets.

Key Takeaways

Consuming high amounts of low fat dairy may lead to decreased insulin sensitivity. Diets high in red meat will not decrease insulin sensitivity.
