The high-fat, high-protein, low-carbohydrate diet has enjoyed much of the media spotlight over the last few months and one of its greatest advocates has been sport scientist Prof Tim Noakes. 

Tim Noakes' high-fat, low carb diet (Banting) has created more than a stir among professionals and the public, but there's no denying that it's worked for him since he is predisposed to develop adult-onset diabetes - what is known as “carbohydrate resistant” (CR) and hence “pre-diabetic”.

According to Noakes there are two types of people: those who can metabolise carbohydrates effectively and those who can't.

Could you be intolerant to carbs? How do you know?

Health24 sat down with Noakes to chat about carbohydrate-resistance and good and bad fats.
