In this blog post, we talk about a big fat lie that has left millions of people around the world in a quite vulnerable state and is persistently taking money from them, convincing them that lifelong use of pharmaceutical drugs is the only solution for them.
However, the truth is quite opposite, and this big fat lie, better known as diabetes, is very easily eliminated through a low-fat plant-based diet and adequate lifestyle habits. Without further ado, let’s jump into a sweet explanation!
I got motivation to make this video when I saw a shocking billboard the other day, with the following title in capitals: The 14th of November – World Diabetes Day. At the bottom of the billboard was a signature of the sponsor of that particular billboard, a certain pharmaceutical company that was proudly offering their toxic products for a tiny compensation of…
I’m not a mathematician, but I can count that much. And so can you come to the conclusion yourself, if I give you the following hypothetical situation: imagine that one person pays you, lets say 50 EUR, to keep their IR under control for a month.
And then you think Why only one month? Why not every month?
And so you convince that person that they should just continue with the same diet that led them to the state of IR – I say IR, because IR is the underlying cause of all types of diabetes, and now you have a monthly income from that person as long as that person is alive, which, true, thanks to toxic pharmaceutical drugs, doesn’t last too long, but still…
And then slowly with marketing and misleading advice on diabetes, you start spreading the teachings about how to GET, or more precisely, how to create the conditions for creating and maintaining insulin resistance.
As you get more and more regular customers, so your appetites go up, and you start thinking: Why keeping this diabetes business at a local level, why wouldn’t it be at the world level? Why not World Diabetes Day?
I have an idea! Why wouldn’t we celebrate World Diabetes Day as New Year!
So, what is your income now when you have a guaranteed monthly income from millions of people around the world?
And all you need to do to maintain that steady income is to keep spreading that big fat lie that says: diabetes is a sugar issue, the cause is sugar in the diet, treatment is drugs, and an adequate diet is a high-fat diet with limited intake of CHO.
And in fact, this kind of diet really shows initial, short-term results, because it simply works on the principle of limiting calories and limiting CHO.
As this type of diet is unsustainable in the long run, and a large percentage of fat in the diet only worsens the state of IR, the initial results soon turn into an even worse state of IR.
Fortunately, there is a far more logical explanation and a more common sense solution.
IR is a result of accumulation of fat in the tissues that were not designed to store fat. These tissues are primarily muscles and liver. When they are blocked with fat, insulin is prevented from doing its job.
When insulin, which has the role of transferring blood glucose from the bloodstream into the cells, cannot perform its job, and this is because the door on the cells through which it tries to get the glucose in, is blocked, is a condition called IR.
Let me give you a picturesque explanation in which you have the main following roles:
key = INSULIN
wood burner = cell
burning spots = mitochondria
wood = glucose
locksmith = pancreas
Under normal conditions, the key unlocks the lock on the wood burner easily, the wood is transferred into the wood burner and burned into energy. The locksmith made one key and does not have to make more keys.
However, one day it happens that the key cannot unlock the door on the wood burner. The locksmith makes another key, but that doesn’t work either. Then the locksmith makes many more keys, but none of them work.
If the locksmith gets tired of overwork, diabetes 2 becomes diabetes 1.
And then you realize that the keys are fine, but the door on the wood burner is blocked. Now, you have two options.
- Option 1 – Limit carbohydrates in the diet
Since this situation has put you in an awkward position, and the wood is still coming, it seems to you that the logical step is to stop the wood from piling up. And so you limit carbohydrates in your diet.
This really eliminates the symptoms, but secretly only worsens the state of IR, because by the nature of things, as soon as the carbohydrates in the diet are limited, the percentage of fat in the diet goes up.
To make matters worse, a diet with a limited percentage of carbohydrates is not sustainable, because it is natural for humans to have a sweet tooth since every cell of the body uses glucose as the primary fuel. And so, as soon as you allow yourself some carbohydrates in your diet, IR shows up in the worst light.
- Option 2 – reducing fat in the diet
Science shows that a low-fat plant-based diet rich in carbohydrates allows:
- reversing IR
- achieving a high level of insulin sensitivity
- easy transfer of glucose from the bloodstream into the cells where it is burned into energy
In addition to switching to a low-fat plant-based diet, other lifestyle habits that contribute to the reversal of IR are:
- alternative fasting – that is, a break from food in between meals
- physical exercise
And now let’s go back to the beginning of this story and that unfortunate billboard. And imagine now, if all people introduced these 3 simple lifestyle habits into their lives: a low-fat plant-based diet, a break from food between meals, and exercise, what would happen to those who sponsored that unfortunate billboard?
A take-away lesson: IR is easily reversed, and the same measures for reversal IR are exactly the ones for achieving an optimal life with diabetes 1.
And the good news is that a low-fat plant-based diet is the most effective means for prevention and reversal of many other modern diseases or, as I like to say, normal reactions of the body to abnormal conditions, such as hypertension, atherosclerosis, heart disease, osteoporosis, Alzheimer’s disease, etc… And so I made you a FREE e-book that presents all the benefits of a low-fat plant-based diet.
