Avocado is thought to naturally lower insulin levels

Diets That Lower Insulin Levels

Most diets actually help you to lower insulin levels.  Most diets reduce or eliminate foods that might spike your insulin levels.  A diet that is based on lowering insulin levels to lose weight may be a good diet, but lower insulin levels to lose weight is not yet proven.  These diets should work, however, since they lower your caloric intake.  

If you are diabetic or pre-diabetic, see your health care professional.  A diet that lowers your insulin levels can help your diabetes as well as help you shed pounds.  

If you are not diabetic or pre-diabetic, lower insulin levels are often a result of weight loss or diet, but are probably not the cause of weight loss.
