If you have diabetes and look at the mainstream medical establishments recommendations, you’ll see that they recommend a diet that is rich in protein and fat and low in sugary foods and so a diet that actually promotes insulin resistance.
So if you have diabetes and don’t want to eat an insulin resistance diet and starve yourself of sugar, what is the alternative?
It has been estimated that currently diabetes affects some 371 million people worldwide.
According to the International Diabetes Federation, this figure is set to rise to 552 million by the year 2030. (1)
In today’s video, I’m interviewing Robby Barbaro from Mastering Diabetes.
Robby is a type 1 diabetic who has been following a high fruit and low fat raw vegan diet for 10 years.
Watch the video here:
Robby Shares how on his old diet that was high in fat, he suffered with a number of serious health issues that included bad acne and allergies, which caused him to use strong medications that failed to heal his conditions.
It was only when he went low fat, raw vegan that his health dramatically improved including his type 1 diabetes.
Diabetes is a serious health condition where the body’s ability to produce or respond to the hormone insulin is impaired, causing blood sugar levels to rise above normal, healthy levels.
Insulin is a hormone that is used by the body to transport blood sugar to the body’s cells. When continued insulin insensitivity occurs or a fundemental lack of enough insulin production this then causes blood sugar levels to rise above normal, healthy levels.
Prolonged high blood sugar levels can cause a whole host of serious health issues which include:
- Heart disease and stroke
- Nerve damage
- Hearing impairment
- Kidney damage
- Eye Damage
Insulin Resistance Diet
A diet that has too much dietary fat in it, both animal and plant fats can cause insulin insensitivity/blood sugar issues and so as a consequence the associated serious health problems listed above.
We’ve written about the shocking link between dietary fat and type 2 diabetes here.
Whether someone is suffering from type 1 diabetes, type 1.5 diabetes (LADA) or type 2 diabetes, a lifestyle that includes a low fat, whole plant foods diet (including all raw or high raw) can dramatically improve their condition, or indeed heal it all together.
What has your experience been with diabetes and a high-carb, low fat vegan lifestyle?
