Within 3 months, i reversed my diabetes and high blood pressure, without following any standard dietary recommendations or taking any medication.
HOW DID YOU DO THIS ?
DID YOU STOP YOUR INSULIN AT THE SAME TIME ?
I did it with a ketogenic diet, against the recommendations of every type of doctor I encountered. In fact, I adhered to a strict ketogenic diet, which is sub-20 carbohydrates a day, and 80-85% of my caloric intake consisting of dietary fats, again against the recommendations of my doctors, and I proved them all wrong.
They attempted to get me to begin diabetic medication; I refused. I told them I would prove them wrong, and without even beginning medication, I was able to reverse my diabetes within 3 months (the first blood test after being on the diet for 3 months was 5.0)
BEFORE AND AFTER
LDL/HDL LEVELS ?
GLUCOSE LEVELS ?
URIC ACID LEVELS ?
LDL/HDL levels are irrelevant; old science stirred up by sugar companies. Reference the recent massive story break by the New York Times about how sugar companies manipulated test results in the 60s to blame cholesterol and high fat for diseases like heart disease and diabetes.
In fact, in a study done in China, they found that a healthy community, where numerous residents lived to be well over 90, had HDL numbers of 13-15 on average.
The real focus should be on LDL particle size, not total LDL vs HDL count.
Blood draw glucose levels 90-95 on average.
Uric acid level normal.
Within 6 months, i lost 75 pounds without doing any exercise whatsoever, BELIEVABLE
and reversed diabetic conditions completely, specifically with regards to diabetic psoriasis, poor circulation in my feet and slow healing wounds.
It is believeable.
In the past 5 months, after begining to exercise, I have also increased my absolute strength by almost 200%, and also corrected my low testosterone deficiency, also without medication.
For almost a year, i have consumed essentially no vegetables GARDEN NOT DOING SO WELL ANYMORE ?
aside from a single serving of green powder in what is now my postworkout YOU STATE ABOVE "without doing any exercise whatsoever" drink and multivitamins, and my blood tests results have not only improved, but are optimal.
YOU SOUND LIKE A PERFECT CANDIDATE FOR GOUT
Garden is fine; just don't eat most of what I grow.
Gout is an auto-immune deficiency brought on by inflammation. The primary cause of inflammation is excess carbohydrates, which converts to excess glucose, which triggers the symptoms of gout.
People who blame protein for gout episodes tend to not know why protein is often to blame. The reason protein 'causes' gout is not because of the protein itself, but because of an excess of protein in the body. The body has a specific threshold for the amount of protein it needs. For most people, it is between .4g to .6g of protein per pound of LEAN body mass, per day. Consuming excess amounts of protein causes the body to convert said excess protein into glucose via a process called gluconeogenisis, which therefore means excess glucose in the system, triggering gout.
The answer is simple: don't over consume protein and carbohydrates, and you have a significantly reduced change of having gout episodes.
Yes, I exercise NOW; have been lifting since November, with great results, though the initial entry was rough due to inactivity for quite some time prior to my diet. I wasn't exercising for the first 6 months, and I did not consume vegetables in any form the first 6 months. I only supplemented with with pill vitamins and minerals, and continue to obtain most of my fiber in the form of chia pudding, initially from ground flax muffins.
The China study is BS.
SO I ASSUME YOU'VE READ THE BOOK AND KNOW OF CAMPBELL'S WORK (WHICH COVERS NOT ONLY CHINA STUDY, BUT STUDY'S THROUGH OUT THE USA, EUROPE, THE PI AND MORE ? )
Yes, I have read both the actual study and the book, and it has been debunked numerous times by countless people as biased and not substantiated. A quick google and youtube search will provide the results.
If you like vegetables, then eat them, but they aren't essential for anything other than micronutrients and fiber, both of which can easily be substituted.
THAT'S WHY HUMANS HAVE SUCH SHARP CLAWS AND TEETH AND ARE SO FAST AND STEALTHY
Males also have nipples. Does that mean we can breastfeed?
Humans are genetically predisposed to utilize fat as a superior energy form; that's why we absorb only enough glucose to replenish glycogen levels in muscles and provide the brain nourishment, and convert excess nutrients, specifically excess glucose, into fat. In fact, the only two organs that NEED glucose are muscles and the brain, both of which don't need very much; generally no more than the glucose derived from 30-40g of carbohydrates for the average person. However, it is possible or the body to function efficiently without any carbohydrates intake whatsoever, as the body will convert protein into glucose via gluconeogenesis, in order to produce the amount of glucose needed primarily by the brain, and attempt to produce enough glucose to convert into glycogen for muscle utilization.
People also forget that the previous species we evolved from also did not have access to the same amount of foods that men has had for the past 10-50,000 years. They were primarily hunter/gatherers, needing to follow their prey. This type of nomadic behavior greatly influenced the genetic predesposition for humans to utilize fat, as it is, again, a more effective and efficient energy source.
If you have health problems like diabetes and are looking for the answer, its not going to be found in examples like the China study or high vegetable diets,
AS MUCH AS I AM HATING THE CHANGE IN DIET, I AM ALREADY SHOWING HEALTH IMPROVEMENTS
and all the info is free on the internet. ALONG WITH SOME TYPE OF SALES PITCH
I didn't hate my change in lifestyle one bit, and I am one of only 4 successful diabetic reversal stories in my clinic's history, the others having to 'suffer' on their vegetable diets.
I eat approximately 2-4 pounds of butter a month, 2-4 shotglasses worth of ghee everyday
I eat approxiimately 15 pounds of 80/20 grassfed beef a month, a quarter pound of red meat everyday.
I eat 3-4 pounds of cheese a month, 5-10 slices everyday
I eat approximately 3 to 4 eggs everyday, all baked in purified/clarified butter (ghee)
All this, that supposedly will make me fat and give me health problems, and I have had tremendous health and weight loss success.
I reduced my monthly dietary expenditure to less than $200/mo, and that is only because I had to significantly increase my caloric intake for strength training. Prior to my caloric increase, i was spending approximately $150/mo, for at least 32 days of food.
There is no sales pitch. Everything I learned, I learned on my own via low carbohydrate / ketogenic friendly communities and via youtube. Like I said: everything is out there for free, if you know where to look and who to talk to. Most people in the low-carb/keto community enjoy helping one another, because most, if not all, have been in some type of situation with health problems, and were able to overcome it with this diet.
This diet has the potential to help so many people, specifically diabetics, but it is never given the chance because of 'studies' like the China Study and haters referencing outdated and biased information, which is why many people don't know about these types of diets and more people get sick and die, rather than overcome their problems easily and naturally.
PS: Not implying you are a hater referencing outdated and biased info, but rather most of the medical community. Can't make money if you fix people.
