2016's Most Popular Diet Monitors Insulin, Not Calories

By Naturally Savvy



According to Google, the most-searched diet of 2016 doesn't count carbs or calories. Google says the GOLO diet, which revolves around insulin levels, topped the list of most popular diet searches this year. While GOLO hasn't received much press until now, the premise behind the diet is the link between insulin and metabolism and weight gain.  

The meal plan is designed around a "metabolic fuel matrix" low in sugar and with minimal processed foods.. When you consume sugar (including glucose, which is present in even the healthiest of carbohydrates), your body must produce insulin in order to convert it to energy. Too much insulin production can lead to insulin resistance over time, a precursor to Type 2 diabetes.
