Increased Dietary Fat Causes Increased Diabetes

Increased Dietary Fat Causes Increased Diabetes

If you have Type II diabetes or prediabetes and wish to no longer be dependent on daily medications, there is hope. It will however, require effort on your part in the form of making lifestyle changes. Some of these lifestyle changes may appear, to some, be extreme--like no longer eating a typical "MODERN" diet. In reality, the required changes are not extreme at all. Initially there's often a battle between two strongly conflicting desires: (1) to no longer be dependent on medications and (2) to eat what you want, when you want. It has been said that "You can't have your cake, and eat it too!" True enough. But, you can however have something infinitely better, and you can eat more of it too!

Lifestyle changes become easier on a day-by-day basis as your taste buds heal. You CAN have it all--you can eat delicious satisfying foods and experience superior health! Three times a day, you have the ability to "choose optimal health" over sickness just by changing what's on your plate! The lifestyle changes which seemed at one time such a drudgery and a chore eventually become a delight. Your taste buds can and will change when you give them a chance. The power is in your hands!

Speaking of having your cake and eating it too--there are two main culprits in cake that could possibly be causing the diabetes. The first is sugar. Have you heard that diabetics (Type II) should not eat sugar because sugar causes diabetes? Well, what would happen if you took that same cake and removed all the sugar? Would the cake now become a health food for diabetics? The answer is no, because another common ingredient in the cake is even worse than sugar when it comes to causing diabetes. In fact, the commonly used term "sugar diabetes" is a bit of a misnomer. There is something else that causes diabetes. Watch the following video by Dr. Michael Greger to learn just what that something is:

There's an overwhelming body of scientific evidence showing that a low-fat, oil-free plant-based diet reduces the risk of developing insulin resistance, which precipitates diabetes. We are starting to gather the scientific research summaries with links to the full studies and other resources. Three of them are listed below:

(1) Dietary fat intake as risk factor for the development of diabetes

(2) No evidence of insulin resistance in normal weight vegetarians

(3) Taiwanese vegetarians have higher insulin sensitivity than omnivores

These studies are a great starting place. Keep returning to the Science section here at DrCarney.com section where studies are being added on a regular basis. 

For more information on Type II diabetes and how to restore your health and reverse your diabetes instead of just "managing" your illness, we recommend viewing the video Diabetes in Retreat which you can preview below:
