Reverse Type 2 Diabetes?
Diabetes type 2 is an awful disease. It’s a death sentence with a countdown that could be years or decades long depending on how well it is managed coupled with dumb luck like genetics or environment. Some die of a heart attack too young. Others live longer but deal with worsening eyesight, amputations or dialysis. It’s not easy to control through diet and exercise only and most end up on insulin.</br></br>It’s considered incurable but some claim to have the answer. A 30 day raw veggie diet has been tooted as the cure for type 2 diabetes and I’ve looked at it. It may work for some but it’s not for me. I just can’t digest raw vegetables very well. The RAW method gives me the RUNS.</br></br>Then I came across what some are calling the Newcastle Diet. It’s a diet being promoted by a Dr Roy Taylor in England. The diet involves eating only 800 calories a day for eight weeks. Seven of eleven subjects who participated in the Newcastle study reversed their type 2 diabetes by the end.</br></br>This of course piqued my interest. I did further research and discovered there are many testimonials of people claiming their type 2 diabetes has been cured or at least driven into remission after completing diets similar to this.</br></br>The premise is that this very restrictive eating program forces the body to consume all the fat clogging up the pancreas and liver which restores proper insulin production and sensitivity. Afterwards you eat normally but intelligently to stave off the lifestyle that brought the disease in the first place. Eight weeks is not forever. It’s worth investigating. But remember before embarking on such a program to consult your doctor. </br></br>I am willing to try it. I will keep you all posted.
