For nearly 40 years I’ve been asking why diabetics are given “lines” of carbohydrate and told to eat it and then take their insulin to reduce it! If diabetes is a disease, which cannot safely handle carbs, why is God’s name tell patients to eat the stuff?
It has never made sense. I’ve cured thousands of diabetics by simply saying “Do not eat carbohydrates.” A great many of them came off insulin altogether.
Diabetes was REVERSED in 8 weeks!
Now a new study has shown that a very low-calorie diet of 600 calories a day totally reverses type 2 diabetes.
Eleven people who had been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes within the past four years slashed their calories for eight weeks, sticking to liquid diet drinks and non-starchy vegetables.
After one week on the diet, participants’ fasting blood sugar levels were no longer elevated.
MRI scans showed that the fat levels in the pancreas fell from around 8% — considered high — to a normal 6%.
After eight weeks on the diet, their bodies were once again making sufficient insulin, essentially reversing their diabetes.
Incredible 70% cure rate
Three months after going off the diet, seven were free of diabetes. That’s about a 70% cure rate. Brilliant!
So what is the doctor’s response who carried out this study? Don’t do it! Study head Roy Taylor, MD, director of the Newcastle Magnetic Resonance Centre at Newcastle University in England said they were not recommending calorie restriction as a cure for diabetes. However he was smart enough to point out that losing weight by any means whatever was good for curing diabetes.
“We have to figure out a more practical way for people to get these results — that is, to get fat out of pancreas and keep it out,” Taylor said.
Diabetes is one of the top three killers in the Western world. It’s tragic because it is such an easy disease to treat: just eat differently!
But over and over patients are told to eat their “lines” and take insulin or drugs.
