Authors' objectives: This project has aimed to use a systematic literature review to assess the scientific evidence underlying dietary recommendations for people with diabetes and impaired glucose tolerance or elevated fasting blood glucose. The objectives did not include a review of the literature on dietary counselling of healthy individuals as a means to prevent diabetes (ie, primary prevention). The dietary components included in the review are proteins, fats, and carbohydrates – so-called "macronutrients" – fibers, and certain foods. We have not, however, reviewed the literature on specific dietary supplements or replacements, eg, protein powders or sweeteners. Since dietary counselling within the health services
generally includes advice on various beverages, we have reviewed the scientific evidence for recommendations concerning the most common beverages.
