01) Can you Cure Diabetes? – What causes Type 2 Diabetes?


“DISCLAIMER: The discussion of this video is type 2 diabetes. If you have diabetes, please investigate further before making drastic changes. This video is of course not meant to be a prescription or to be interpreted as medical advice. The aim is for it to be a stepping stone towards finding what works for your specific personal case. Being on a low carb diet or a keto diet will induce certain physiological changes that you’d do well to be aware of. For example most people think a ketogenic diet is accompanied by an inevitable “keto flu,” but in most cases this can be avoided by taking some sodium. Many many people are experiencing improvements on a low carb or keto diet and/or a fasting protocal, but of course you need to consider how this would interact with whatever medications you may be taking or other factors that make your case unique.

    My blood sugar had been creeping up over the last four years just into the pre-diabetic range. I did not go on a typically ketogenic diet, as I understand it (and I’m a vegetarian so the paleo diet is completely out) but instead I started an intermittent fasting regimen with somewhere around twelve to seventeen hours between any food or beverage apart from water. I’ve also greatly improved the quality of food I eat and it is very high fiber with lots of fresh vegetables mostly eaten raw as salad. My blood sugar has dropped well below pre-diabetic range and I’ve lost a significant amount of weight (about forty pounds, thus far). I feel good and the hunger is not nearly as bad as I had feared. Very manageable.

        Well, you have blood sugar issues to contend with and I have no idea how fasting affects that. If it is safe for you, I recommend a very low-(not “simple”) carb diet with lots of complex carbs (vegetables and fiber) with high nutritional value for one or two meals a day. I would say, try fasting deliberately (not just skipping a meal but planning it into your diet having had a very nutritious meal before fasting). No, or very little, bread or sugar and a small amount of healthy cereal grains-the lower glycemic index (not refined or finely ground), the better. Then finishing your fast with the same quality of diet. Start with a modest length of fast and see how it goes. Protein is important for dieting so that your muscles don’t get consumed as much as fat. However, this doesn’t have to be meat. Lots of vegetables sources for protein are every bit as good. Eggs are amazing for diets and the rules on cholesterol from eggs have all been thrown out the window and there are no longer recommendations to avoid yolks or limiting number of eggs eaten. Turns out that a half-century of advice for eggs was completely wrong. Good luck!
