This is another “I Told ‘Em!” Something I’ve been saying for decades and now science is beginning to prove I was right all along!

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.

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.

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.

Incidentally: 

The last quarter century has seen such an explosion in the incidence of diabetes that nearly 350 million people worldwide now struggle with the disease, a new British-American study reveals.

Over the past three decades the number of adults with diabetes has more than doubled, jumping from 153 million in 1980 to 347 million in 2008. That’s soon to be HALF A BILLION! One might almost say that the other name for diabetes is “civilization”!

The incidence of diabetes in the United States is rising twice as fast as that of Western Europe, the investigation revealed.
