Do not listen to me. Listen to the Medical Industry’s ‘experts of diabetes care’.
- I was obese, drug and insulin dependent, with elevated blood sugars.
- Since 2009, I am normal weight, normal blood sugar levels while being totally drug and insulin FREE!
I was drug and insulin dependent, taking (4) insulin shots per day, just to survive. Today, and since 2009 I THRIVE, not ‘just’ survive… with truly normal, non-diabetic blood sugar levels.
Above is my overnight fasting blood sugar this morning. This blood sugar level should be the goal for all diabetics… sadly it is not. Too many listen to ‘experts of diabetes care’, who mislead diabetics into believing that elevated blood sugar levels are ok.
Often when I rant and rail against the Medical Industry people will protest, claiming that things have changed. It’s true that more and more in the Medical Industry are learning about a ‘low carb paleo’ style meal plan to treat diabetes… however, they are still a tiny minority.
Nicole Recine shared this picture on twitter a few days ago. She’s an RN, studying to be a Nurse Practitioner.
This was in her text book …
You can see from the picture above, the Medical Industry is still teaching from the ‘science’ that has been bought and paid for by Big Food and Big Pharma. Nurse practitioners are being taught a low fat, high carb diet is best for diabetics. THE EXACT OPPOSITE of what I eat…
In the box on the left of the picture, you can see the dietary advice … for diabetics. 60-70% of calories from carbs! For a 2,000 calorie diet that’s at least 300 grams of CARBS! I typically consume 2-3%.
I THRIVE on a high fat, very low carb diabetes diet. I do not require drugs, nor the Medical Industry.
Here is a link to the book on Amazon, “Primary Care: Art and Science of Advanced Practice Nursing” … uh huh. It should be titled, “How to Increase Frequency of Patient Visits”.
Do Not Listen to Me
Just because I am someone who had reached the deep depths of diabetes despair after a diabetes diagnosis and clawed my way back to being ‘normal’ ….
Just because I talk the talk AND walk the walk… do not listen to me.
Do NOT LISTEN TO ME!
Listen to the Experts of Diabetes Care
Experts in diabetes care profit from your continual need for drugs and diabetes services… so by all means listen and heed the advice from those that profit from your continual decline in health.
The Experts will pat you on the back and tell you how good you are doing with an A1c 6 and above.
The Experts will coddle, cuddle and enable you to continue to eat the foods that cause you harm.
The Experts will tell you, ‘You have a right to eat like everyone else.’
The Experts profit from your pain and suffering. Without your continued ‘business’, they would have to find meaningful work, being productive members of society. Instead, they ‘feed’ on the pain and suffering of others.
Diabetes Care from the “Experts”
A friend of mine shared with me the link below, this was sent to them via an email.
All starts out pretty reasonable, in the videos from this article “Carbohydrates in the Diabetes Diet“. Like so much in nutrition these days, the devil is in the details.
“carbohydrates will turn into sugar”
Fascinating… tell me more? :)
The lady begins to mention the carbohydrates that turn into sugar….
“wheat, rye, oats, corn, rice … bread, pasta, crackers, cereals, tortillas, corn, corn meal, rice, vegetables, fruits, sweets, milk and yogurt”
I personally disagree with yogurt, but then again I eat the ‘plain’ full fat yogurt… no sugar added. She’s probably talking about the yogurt with flavorings and added sugar. If you decide to eat full fat, plain yogurt … test test test! My favorites are Greek Gods and Fage.
All in all, this first video was pretty good information. So how does an expert know that carbohydrates cause blood sugar to rise… and yet still promotes a high carb, grain based meal plan?
A meal plan that causes the need for more and more drugs…and damaging high blood sugars?
The next video …. in the series, “Facts about Carbs” , this has a ‘Registered Dietitian’ Sarah Aligood (sp?) speaking, being an RD you know she’s likely to be a grain pusher. She did not disappoint.
“Carbohydrates are absolutely essential in a diet”
WRONG! Your body produces all the glucose it needs via gluconeogensis. If you only learn one thing from me… learn that we do not require carbs to survive nor THRIVE!
Next she says, “You need carbs for proper brain function” … this woman is so ignorant.
What’s worse, her ignorance is harming people who listen to her!!!
Your body (including your brain) does require glucose but again your body produces all it needs through gluconeogenesis!
Thrive not just Survive
Any person with a brain and yearning to learn the truth will know… humans do not require carbohydrates to survive… NOR TO THRIVE!
I wrote a post about it, “Why Low Carb Works“. Much of this blog is dedicated to showing my results with a very low carb diabetes diet.
I won’t go into all of her other ridiculous claims… except this one…
“cutting carbs is certainly not going to help your health and could actually harm it”.
The advice above has been repeated to millions of diabetics across the globe and harms each of them that heed that advice.
I don’t know if there were any more videos after that… I’d seen enough. By the way, my typical day includes about 2-3% of calories from carbohydrates… and has been for three years. Most days I consume 5-15 grams of carbohydrates per day.
Experts in Increasing Diabetes Care
The reason I shared these pathetic examples of diabetes care ‘experts’ ?
To show you that EVEN today people are still being mislead by ‘highly educated’ medical industry professionals.
The medical industry doesn’t have ‘diabetes care experts’, they have experts at increasing diabetes care. They promote diets and lifestyles that increase the need for diabetes care, diabetes services and diabetes drugs.
You can listen to those experts who promote a high carb grain based meal plan….
… or you can look at my example. I eat mostly fatty meats and low carb vegetables … like this. :)
So why do these so called ‘experts’ promote a high carb, grain based meal plan??? Is it…
A) Intellectual Laziness
B) Willful ignorance
D) All of the Above?
