I am an easy going guy… I usually do not let things get to me.
HOWEVER, since being diagnosed with Diabetes and seeing what a low carb food pyramid can do … I really get angry when someone promotes a high carb meal plan as being the preferred diabetic diet.
I REALLY get fired up when I see people promote a high carb meal plan…. WHEN THEY PROFIT from such a meal plan.
Joslin Diabetes Center, with their “fine” logo… is just such a organization. As you can see… it’s “the world’s preeminent diabetes research group”. And they are associated with Harvard… so … you know you are getting the very best advice in the world… right???
Joslin is an ADA Minion, posted this article today on Twitter. Five Common Food Myths for People with Diabetes Debunked
Information contained in this post will only keep most diabetics on an ever increasing regimen of drugs and insulin.
How do I know this???
BECAUSE I talk to many of them every week! Go to any diabetes board, forum, newsgroup etc, VAST majority of the people who eat the “ADA Way” can not control their blood sugar with out ever increasing amount of drugs and insulin…. and of course you must take Cholesterol and Blood Pressure drugs too…. WHAT A CROCK!!! (ADA stands for American Diabetes Association)
Just to avoid confusion, what you will see in the “quoted” areas… are Myths according to Joslin… a “respected” drug salesman for Big Pharma.
Myth 1. People with diabetes have to eat different foods from the rest of the family.
Are you KIDDING ME???
First, the typical family eats ENTIRELY too many sweets, high carb and highly processsed foods…. SO OF COURSE A DIABETIC should NOT eat like them.
For type 1’s … their pancreas do NOT produce insulin… so why in the HELL would you suggest a Type 1 continue to eat like the rest of the family??? It is UNETHICAL!!
For type 2’s …. EATING LIKE “THE REST OF THE FAMILY” is what put them in this CONDITION!!! Of course you must change your meal plan… OR YOU WILL LIKELY TAKE an increasing amount of drugs and insulin… for life!!!
This is so typical of ADA MINION “enabling” drivel ….. why would Joslin, Harvard…hell…even the ADA say this?
This is straight out of the ADA playbook. Why do they suggest such a thing, when they know that most REQUIRE DRUGS TO EAT THIS WAY!?!?! …. is it all about the money?
Myth 2. People with diabetes should never give in to food cravings.
The best way to deal with food cravings is to try to prevent them by following a healthy eating plan that lets you occasionally fit sweets into your diabetes meal plan
This doesn’t make any sense, they are encouraging DIABETICS TO EAT SWEETS. Do you know what happens when a diabetic eats sweets? They must take drugs and / or insulin to cover it. Why would you condone, encourage it???
Will people “cheat” ? Probably… but do NOT CONDONE IT! I am NOT for diabetics “beating themselves up” over lapses .. by all means STAY positive… but to not “enable” and condone it!!
Does AA condone relapse… even encourage them??? NO! It is ridiculous.
Myth 3. People with diabetes shouldn’t eat too many starchy foods, even if they contain fiber, because starch raises your blood glucose and makes you gain weight.
At this point… I am almost speechless… ALMOST! :)
Eating too many starchy and high carb foods is POISON to diabetics. IT requires them to take drugs and insulin to “cover” … encouraging high carb foods is… UNETHICAL.
** This advice does NOT benefit DIABETICS …. so who benefits from this advice???
Answer: Big Agra such as Monsanto, Big Pharma, the ADA & Their Minion .
IF 24 million diabetics in the USA reduced drugs, reduced insulin …. who benefits? The diabetics…
