I’m just going to make this one short and brief though I suspect that it might not be. I’m sure everybody is aware of the condition called Diabetes and how it comes about but there are some facts that are deliberately being left out in relation to this condition. The first thing that should be mentioned is that diabetes IS REVERSIBLE, in fact any ailment or disease is reversible with the right knowledge and the right tools.
A SIMPLE BREAKDOWN ON DIABETES
Diabetes mellitus, often simply referred to as diabetes, is a group of metabolic diseases in which a person has high blood sugar, either because the body does not produce enough insulin, or because cells do not respond to the insulin that is produced. This high blood sugar produces the classical symptoms of polyuria (frequent urination), polydipsia(increased thirst) and polyphagia (increased hunger).
ADVICE NORMALLY GIVEN AND THE ADVICE THAT SHOULD REALLY BE GIVEN
The first thing I would say to people is that YOU have to live in your body for 70 years plus, nobody else knows your body like you do, so you should get to know your own body and how it works yourself rather than continually relying on other people to the diagnose problems that may be occurring within it.
Let us look at some of the common dietary advice that is given out by the National Health Service based in the United Kingdom, in relation to people who suffer from diabetes and let us see what is bloody wrong with this stupid picture. I pulled the following from this site:
We will tackle this one piece at a time:
NHS dieticians’ advice
Earlier this year, top NHS dieticians were reported as providing the following tips for people with diabetes.
Together, these can be said to sum up the NHS approach to controlling type 2 diabetes with diet.
- Eat plenty of starchy carbohydrates
- Eat carbohydrate foods with a low GI
- Avoid high GI foods, especially between meals
- Eat regular meals and healthy snacks
- Don’t miss breakfast
- Don’t skip meals
- Avoid all unhealthy/hydrogenated fats
- Choose low-fat dairy products
- Check food labels
- Choose lean meat and remove fat and skin
- Avoid fried and fast food, and baked goods
- Keep hydrated and avoid binge-drinking
Base Meals Upon Starchy Carbohydrate
The NHS advises people, including those with diabetes, to base meals around food with starchy carbohydrate such as:
The advice has caused some controversy over people with diabetes. Read more about the debate around NHS carbohydrate advice.
Remember what you were shown before, that starchy carbohydrate food is really just sugar in disguise. These are the foods that every diabetic should be avoiding for miles, these foods are a recipe for disaster and people who do not want to suffer from diabetes down the road should greatly reduce their intake of these foods with a vision to cutting them out of the diet completely. There are plenty of alternatives to the blood sugar spikers listed above. Again, the body’s preferred fuel is fat so in order to bring your blood sugar down you should be looking to consume foods with a high natural fat and protein content. You will notice with food that protein and fat normally come together, for example chicken and the skin or beef and the side fat. That is because they are meant to be eaten TOGETHER, not separated. The Most High God knew what he was doing when he created your food people.
So in essence, the NHS is advising you to replace sugar with sugar. Do you now see why it is important to take your own health into your own hands with nut rageous lunatics such as these dishing out guaranteed early death advice such as this? I hope that people here are taking some serious notes. And viewing the statement at the bottom, are we surprised that this type of advice has caused controversy among diabetics? Asking them to replace sugar with sugar, isn’t this clearly a form of stupidity at its highest eh NHS?
The next piece of advice reads:
Have plenty of fruit and vegetables
The Department of Health recommends we eat at least 5 portions of fruit and vegetables a day. The 5 portions should ideally be different fruit and vegetables.
The NHS recommends people to eat less saturated fat and advises eating foods containing unsaturated fats such as:
- Oily fish
- Unsalted nuts
- Rather than foods containing saturated fat such as:
Choosing leaner meats such as chicken or trimming fat off cuts of red meat can help to reduce saturated fat.
Oily fish is a good diet option because it contains important minerals as well as being a good source of omega-3 fats. Eating at least 2 portions of fish a week is recommend, with at least 1 of those portions being oily fish.
This is actually some sound advice, just avoid the farm raised fish which are commonly fed on GMO feeds and instead opt for freshly caught wild fish or organically sourced fish. Farmers markets are a great source to purchase wild and fresh fish and should be utilised to the fullest.
Eat less sugar and salt
Cutting down on sugar comes expected for people with diabetes. It is also recommended to cut down on salt.
The Department of Health advise eating less than 6g of salt each day.
The first part of this advice is sound as all of the western nations are consuming far too much sugar which isn’t natural. No wonder more and more people are becoming diabetic. However, there is nothing wrong with salt, as the same is the case with saturated fat, there has never been anything wrong with salt, in fact contrary to popular belief, too much salt does not cause high blood pressure. In fact people who are looking into this salt issue are concluding that too little salt can lead to high blood pressure. Your body needs salt and plenty of it, taste your sweat next time you exercise and tell me what you detect. Refined table salt commonly sold in supermarkets should be avoided at all costs as the natural state of the salt has been tampered with via the refining process. Natural unrefined salts should be what to go for as these have all the minerals intact and the natural structure of the salt has not been compromised.
The NHS advises eating breakfast each day and not being tempted to skip the first meal of the day. Research shows that a low GI breakfast can help to prevent overeating through the rest of the day.
This again is sound advice as skipping breakfast is not a healthy and wise thing to do. Remember, your body has been fasting for the last 8 hours plus during sleep and now being awake, it requires the fuel to run efficiently and get things working properly. Skipping out the first meal of the day is never a good idea.
Aim to drink at least 1.2 litres of fluid each day. Note this includes tea, coffee, milk and fruit juice but does not include alcohol. On warmer days, more than 1.2 litres of fluid may need to be consumed.
This advice is a load of crud and has always been. At the end of the day you will drink fluids when you are thirsty, your body tells you when you need to take in more fluids. Forcing 1.2 liters of fluids into a body that may not require them is utter folly. Admittedly, since I have drastically reduced the carb intake in my diet, I do go through large amounts of water, sometimes 2 liters a day. However, that is MY BODY telling me to take in more fluids, not the NHS. When your body needs more fluids, it will let you know. Again, they tell you to drink high amounts of fluids per day knowing that the majority of people are going to be at work and away from home, and who is there to supply you with them, the spring, mineral water and soft drink companies. Are you beginning to see how everything is connected and is a straight knock and scam? I hope you are by now.
