Is there any published eveidence that a whole food, plant-based nutrition diet can reverse type 2 diabetes?


Yes, there is quite a lot! Dr. Neal Barnard has published a number of papers on the outcomes of his work using a low-fat, vegan diet to reverse type 2 diabetes. His results are quite rapid and a majority of participants are able to discontinue their medication.
