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

Am J Clin Nutr, 25 March 2015

Background: Epidemiologic studies have linked high consumption of red and processed meat with risk of developing type 2 diabetes, whereas high dairy consumption has been associated with decreased risk, but interventions have been limited.

Objective: We compared the effects on insulin sensitivity of consuming a diet high in lean red meat with minimal dairy, a diet high in dairy primarily low fat (from milk, yogurt, or custard) with no red meat, and a control diet that contained neither red meat nor dairy.…

Conclusion: In contrast to some epidemiologic findings, these results suggest that high consumption of dairy reduces insulin sensitivity compared with a diet high in lean red meat in overweight and obese subjects, some of whom had glucose intolerance. Read more.
