Some Biochemical Effects Of a Mainly Fruit Diet In Man

B.J. Meyer, E.J.P. De Bruin, D.G. du Plessis, M Van der Merwe

Abstract


The effect of a nut-supplemented fruit diet on glucose tolerance, insulin secretion, plasma proteins and plasma lipids of human volunteers was investigated. The results suggest that, at least for the period covered by the experiment and under the prevailing conditions, the diet was adequate with respect to the parameters investigated, and may even have something to commend it.
