A Diabetics Testimony

Type 2 Diabetes Part 1

Some years ago an experiment was conducted to see how fast a person could become a diabetic. This will actually shock some of you because when a person is called a diabetic or has sugar diabetes he or she automatically thinks that they should stop eating sugar. There is of course different types of sugar. So, some are confuse on what type of sugars they shouldn't eat. But, you must hear this when this experiment was conducted they found out that they could create a diabetic faster by feeding these little boys oil (fats) than sugar. Actually, a diabetic should be called a carbohydrate diabetic, even this term doesn't seem do it any justice. You see we play on words when we speak. Sugar can be sugar that is in the fruits, nuts, grains and vegetables. Then there's sugar that has been isolated from the fruit, grain, nut or vegetable. That latter is the problem. This is called refine sugar. What about the oil or fat. There is fat in fruits, nuts, grains and vegetables. The problem is the refined fat or fat extract out of the fruits, nuts, grains and vegetables. For example, Corn oil, vegetable oil, coconut oil, palm oil, canola oil, etc. Did you know that it takes about 9 feet of sugar cane to get 1 table spoon of sugar and 10-12 ears of corn to get 1 tablespoon of oil.

Would you sit down and eat 9 feet of sugar cane in one sitting? No way! What about eating 10-12 ears of corn in one sitting? No Way! We are eating these levels two and three times in one sitting. This is why our bodies are malfunctioning. It takes longer to process fat and also it overtaxes the pancreas. So, the statement made in the last article is correct.A low fat diet,plant food diet and exercise will reverse diabetes. The NEWSTART Program is a program that emphasizes lifestyle change. NEWSTART is a acronym for Nutrition, Exercise, Water, Sunshine, Temperance, Air, Rest and Trust in Divine Power. In the next article I will attempt to dig a little dipper on individual parts of the NEWSTART Plan. If you have type 2 diabetes there is hope.

Good News for People with Type 2 Diabetes!

"Medical research confirms that up to 50% of people with Type 2 diabetes can eliminate diabetes risks and discontinue medication within three weeks by adopting a low-fat, plant food diet and regular daily exercise."
Anderson, JW and Ward, K: High Carbohydrate, High fiber diets for insulin-treated men with diabetes mellitus. Am J Clin Nutr, 1979; 32:2312-21.

Science Agrees... Tests confirm low-fat diet alone reversed type 2 diabetes in laboratory animals.

In a scientific study released on September 9, 1998, " . . . While doctors have long known that weight loss can control diabetes, this is the first scientific study to show that type 2 diabetes can be completely reversed in animals by cutting dietary fat. Moreover, the findings suggest that reducing fat, not just weight, is a primary mechanism behind the reversal."
Richard Surwit, PhD et al, September '98 Metabolism. Duke University

A concurrent program at Weimar's NEWSTART® Lifestyle Center, in which type 2 diabetes patients eat a low-fat diet and exercise daily, is experiencing a similar success in reversing diabetes. Many are completely off all insulin and medication with a normal blood sugar. Neuropathy has been reversed and renal function improved in many. Atherosclerosis, the big killer of people with diabetes, also responds favorably to the NEWSTART® program.

* 50% of people with type 2 diabetes have normal blood sugar without medication in as little as three weeks.
* 80% with diabetic neuropathy have no more pain in their feet and hands.
* Other benefits of working this plan include:
* 80% of men have normal blood pressure without medication.
* a 25% drop in cholesterol is common.
* a 35% increase in exercise capacity occurs.

Scientific research supports use of a low-fat, plant-based diet, plus exercise, in the prevention, treatment and reversal of type 2 diabetes.

The Atkins Diet, The Zone, Protein Power, Sugar Busters and the Stillman Diet all came under the attack of the Nutrition Committee of the American Heart Association (AHA) in a report in the October 9, 2001 issue of the journal Circulation (104:1869-74, 2001).1 For the full story, go to:
