Type II Diabetes

Type II Diabetes

Fasting blood sugar levels (FBS) sugar levels of 100-120 over an extended period of time cause the body to release insulin which in turn signals the body to store fat.  When insulin is released it takes your blood sugar from high to low causing fatigue, depression and lethargy.

OVERCOMING TYPE II DIABETES is not about eating foods that are good for you; it is about ELIMINATING foods that are not; including many foods touted as “health foods” which actually will increase your blood sugar level rather than balance it.type2diabetes 150x150 Type II Diabetes

SUGAR IS THE #1 ENEMY—This includes white sugar, brown sugar, raw sugar, turbinado sugar, honey, maple syrup, agave and most importantly high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) which is not really fructose and is a key ingredient in most all processed foods.

NOTE: You must eat fat in order to lose fat. If not eating the correct fats, the body will convert/store whatever you do eat as fat!

 

 

PROCESSED FOODS ARE THE #2 ENEMY:processed food 150x150 Type II Diabetes

 

  • All artificial sweeteners such as Sweet n Low, Equal, Nutra-Sweet, Splenda
  • Soft Drinks
  • Hydrogenated Oils
  • High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS)
  • Processed Soy Products

 

Eat foods containing only 1 ingredient such as:

  • Steak
  • Chicken (Hormone Free / Organic / Free Range)
  • Fish
  • Eggs (Organic/Fertile/Reputable Source)
  • Olive Oil
  • Coconut Oil
  • Fruits & Vegetables

 

NOTE: A 30 day diet of just raw foods will cure type II diabetes.  However, the average person will not devote the time it takes to educate themselves about eating raw nor will they create the time to prepare the meals.

In my practice I use some of the best products available to support blood sugar levels. And I only use them to assist the patient in getting from point A to point B.  Under no circumstance do I want any patient  to remain on a type II diabetic supplement protocol for the rest of their natural life.

 

What I do want is for them to:

  • Eliminate the foods which created the diabetes in the place
  • Exercise regularly
  • Walk an hour per day
  • Drink water

 

I rarely endorse pharmaceutical intervention for Type II (not Type I) diabetes because Type II diabetes can easily be rectified with proper food intake including water and exercise.
