If you have type 2 diabetes, are pre diabetic or even if you think you are healthy,
this could be the most important video you will ever watch.
Sarah Hallberg says she has the best job in the world. She’s a doctor,an obesity doctor. She works with people judged foe being fat. These people have suffered from shame, guilt, blame and discrimination. Many, including those in healthcare, is that these people have no one to blame but themselves, they have no will power and are not serious about changing.
Dr. Hallberg says this is not the case.
Obesity is a disease, It’s a hormonal disease, and there are many hormones involved. And one of the main ones is insulin. Most fat people are resistant to this hormone, insulin. And insulin resistance is essentially a state of pre-pre-type 2 diabetes.
Insulin’s purpose is to drive glucose, or blood sugar, into the cells where it can be utilized. If it couldn’t get into the cells, everyone would have a diabetic crisis after every meal.
In a person resistant to insulin, the body’s reaction to this is to make more of it. And insulin levels will rise and rise. For a while – even years – blood sugar levels can remain normal. But, eventually even those elevated levels of insulin are not enough to keep blood sugar in the normal range.
So blood sugar starts to rise. That’s diabetes.
Amost 50% of adult Americans now have diabetes or prediabetes. But way more than that have issues with insulin.
People can elevated insulin levels due to insulin resistance for years, even decades, long before they are even diagnosed with prediabetes.
Plus you may be surprised that 16-25% of normal-weight adults are also insulin resistant.
If insulin resistance is goes up, there is at great risk for developing type 2 diabetes. Insulin also makes us hungry, and the food then is more likely to end up as fat.
Insulin is our fat storage hormone. What if we so much glucose around that insulin needed to deal with? Let’s take a look at how that could be. Everything you eat is either a carbohydrate, a protein or a fat, and they all have very different effect on glucose and therefore insulin levels.
Carbohydrates make our insulin and glucose levels spike up fast. With proteins it takes much longer.
But eating fat has no effect on insulin levels.
Eat carbohydrates, your glucose goes up, your insulin goes up, and you have hunger and fat storage.
But guidelines for people with type 2 diabetes are to eat 40 to 65 grams of carbohydrates per meal, in addition to more at snack time. That is a lot of carbs.
As you have seen that is all wrong. Insulin resistance is essentially a state of carbohydrate intolerance.
Dr. Hallberg states that type 2 diabetes can be reversed in most situations.
Shocker – the body does not need carbohydrates.
Our carbohydrate intake is the single, biggest factor in blood sugar levels, and therefore need for medication. The conventional recommended guidelines say: if you are taking certain diabetic medications, you actually have to eat carbs, otherwise your blood sugar can go too low. Okay, so let’s take a look at the vicious cycle that that advice just set up. So it’s: Eat carbs so you have to take the medicine, then you have to eat more carbs so you avoid the side-effect of those medications, and around and around we go.
Our bodies need essential amino acids (which are the building blocks of proteins) we need essential fatty acids. But we do not need carbs. Our bodies make all the glucose we need.
When diabetic patients cut their carbs, the need for insulin goes down. Fast.
Getting rid of carbs not only can reverse type-2 diabetes, but also decrease your risk of heart problems even cancers, and make you overall healthier.
A low-carb diet is not zero carb, and it is not a high protein diet. So what do you eat?
Her patients eat fat, and a lot of it.
Fat is the only thing that is going to keep blood sugar levels normal.
Do not eat something from a store that says low fat or fat free. They took the fat out and put chemicals and carbs in.
Eat real food.
Eat only when you are hungry – not when you are supposed to.
No grains, no sugar, no potatoes
Use flours that are not from grain: coconut, almond, hazelnut, flax.
Her patients not only were healthier but saved an average of over $2000 on medications.
Basically there is a lot of money and conflicts of interest involved in keeping people sick. Please watch the video which contains more information than this article.
