You are not going: to get a high degree of consensus from medical professionals on this question. Many of us believe that if you eat according to dietary guidelines, with lots of vegetables, fruits and whole grains, you should be fine. Some have advised chromium for diabetes, but evidence of benefit is weak. You do need some fiber from whole grains even with a low carb diet to avoid constipation/get all you need:)
