Diabetes and Your Diet

Updated: Mar 24, 2021

Sugar Diabetes is directly related to the food we consume. Even Type 1 diabetes has been linked to being caused by an adverse reaction to food consumed by the child. Sorry, mom and dad, it's our fault. We fed the kid a food that caused it.

So, if this information is so trivial, why isn't it wide spread? Think about it. Why would the solution for a billion dollar industry be unknown to the public? I'll let you digest that.

In the olden days when diabetes was not as rampant, what did our diet look like? Sure we may have eaten sweet cakes and deserts. But were we eating them in the quantity that we are now? Were they as cheap or readily available as they are today? Did we not have to burn some significant calories just to make or obtain them? Were we not still forced to eat cereal in its unprocessed form versus from a colorful box? The colorful box may list added ingredients, but have you ever stopped to think about what was taken out of it in order to make it last 2 years on the shelf?

Nowadays, we might as well all be hooked up to IV's of pure glucose sugar around the clock because that is what our diet now looks like. Even the hash brown potatoes I bought had sugar in it (listed of course as dextrose). Why? I just wanted plain potatoes?

Turns out that the effects of sugar are both psychological and physiological. That is it to say that it affects us both mentally and physically.

Mentally, sugar is very addictive. Like a narcotic drug, you always want more even when it is not benefiting you and is in fact hurting you. Plus the constant yo-yo-ing of the blood sugar levels can definitely result in a crappy moody day. Who wants that?

Physically, sugar causes inflammation in the body. Chronic inflammation is known to be just as harmful to the body as the agent that is causing it.

So how is a healthier diet possible with Diabetes when the current healthcare protocols tell you to literally "stop" eating this and that and everything? Let's reason together...

How will your body feel if you just don't get hungry as often anymore and yet you are still well nourished? That is what happens when you eat quality food versus bulk produced highly processed food. No one is going to advertise for fresh cabbage or corn, but they will definitely advertise processed corn flakes. I recall when I used to make cornbread in the early 2000's. Overnight, I just couldn't achieve the quality of cornbread that I used to easily whip up. Corn meal is now degeminated because the product made that way lasts longer on store shelves without rotting. But that just means that we are now eating chaff. Of course chaff won't rot as quickly. That's profitable for the manufacturer, but unfair to the unsuspecting consumer.

So, ditch the fancy packaged foods. Eat high quality foods and see how happy your body will be. See how your blood sugars will suddenly stabilize even though you are still eating carbs and sugars from naturally unprocessed sources. Imagine this, in order to obtain the same amount of sugar from an apple versus a glass of apple juice, your body will have to digest, breakdown the apple (well, 5 or more apples will yield 1 glass of juice). In an apple are other yet to be identified antioxidants and agents that your body will utilize. You not only get the sugar you were craving, you also get healing agents both those known (like vitamin C) and those unknown. And I bet you'll be full from eating 5 or more apples versus a glass of juice...

Diabetes does not have to be a life-long debilitating disease. It has been successfully managed and cured by well known and easy diet modifications. One obvious solution is going Vegan. No, it will not be in the next television commercial. Selling less drugs doesn't make the big pharma boss richer, does it?

Think about it.
