Question:

What is better: the high protein diet approaches put forth by books like "The Zone," "Protein Power," the Atkins Diet -- they all promise great things for diabetics and a lot of their arguments make sense to a lay person. the ADA-approved diets seem to have a lot more carbs in them. This is in reference to a newly diagnosed Type 2, age 42, (with a lot of weight to lose) who would rather eat the ADA way but has read so much she is completely confused!

Answer:

In my opinion the ADA way makes more sense, especially if you are trying to lose weight. It is difficult in reality to eat higher protein without higher fat.
