Professor Brand-Miller, from the Universitys Charles Perkins Centre, said: I think all of us have experienced weight gain creep over our adult life, and many of us have tried all manner of diets only to regain over time. This new study tells us that choosing low GI versions of breads, potatoes and rice will make it easier to beat the battle of the bulge.
Kate Obermeyers husband, Ben, participated in the PREVIEW study. She said it had beneficial effects for her partner and her Sydney-based family.
I didnt realise that many of the foods we ate were low fibre and high GI both of which can contribute to weight gain and pre-diabetes, she said.
My husband had a family history of diabetes, and I have a family history of heart disease. Though Ben was the study participant, we all followed the eating plan.
According to the latest data, around one million Australians have Type 2 diabetes, and two million people are at high risk of developing the disease. The World Health Organization states that the global prevalence of diabetes is increasing. In 2019, it directly caused an estimated 1.5 million deaths.
