In the study, researchers assigned people a score from 0 to 6, depending on how closely they adhered to the traditional Nordic eating style. For every point earned, mortality dropped by 4 to 6 percent over the course of the 12-year study. Overall, men with the most points reduced their mortality by 36 percent while top-scoring women lowered their mortality by 25 percent.Since the Viking diet contains foods that I enjoy, I am tempted to try it. However, I do have one nagging question: how do people with glycemic issues --- diabetes, insulin resistance, and the like --- fare on this plan?
