you are worried about watering the lawn while the house is on fire.
there is a way to flat CURE type 2 diabetes. It is called Atkins Induction.
Nutrition is NOT a problem, not when you have a literal life-threatening disease. Atkins allows all the green vegetables you want… ALL you want. Body weight quantities, if you wish.
If you wish to supplement the Atkins Induction with whatever nutrients you want, then take a good multivitamin. Take two per day, if it makes you feel better.
But the bottom line is this-- you MUST break the insulin resistance of type 2, or you will be slowly dieing the rest of your (foreshortened) life fighting a losing battle, or starving yourself. Type two results, in many people, simply because there is nothing to sustain the body from meal to meal. The carbs from the previous meal burn out, and leaves you hungry. And carbs are the cure for this ‘hungry’. Which simply throws more fuel on the fire that is your home-- your body. The body tires of the cyclic variations of blood sugar, and sets out to cure it… it does this by constructing a protein sheath around the cells, inhibiting the action of insulin. This IS type 2.
So, what is required is to break the back of this affliction, known as type 2 or insulin resistance. And the method for that is to simply remove carbs from the diet, and put the body on a protein/fat metabolism.
For some type 2s, this may result in a fast turnaround, if the protein sheath is not well established. For other type 2s, this may necessitate a lifelong regimen where 80 or more percent of the calories come from protein and fats, so that there is NO ‘valley’ of blood sugar between meals.
But for the newly diagnosed type 2, or a type 2 who is tired of a steadily losing battle dictated by the food pyramid and ‘modern medicine’, there is NO question-- the ONLY curative approach is to REMOVE carbs from the diet. Ruthlessly, cold bloodedly REMOVE carbs. Then, in 2 months, or longer, perhaps much longer, very gradually increasing amounts of low-GL, low GI (GL=glycemic load, GI=glycemic index) carbs can be added back in to the diet. But for type 2s, those already demonstrated to be prone to the insulin resistance called ‘type 2 diabetes’, initially carbs must be REMOVED.
If, in 2 months, or 6 months, or 2 years, it is possible to get to an 80 percent protein/fat, 20 percent carb diet, then it can be done. But ONLY when regular monitoring of blood glucose demonstrates that it CAN be done. If you want to see good numbers in a type 2, REMOVE THE CARBS.
I don’t care that the grass needs watering… first you put out the fire in the kitchen.
Take the necessary high quality multivitamins if you want the nutrition missing from not eating grains. But first you have to deal with first problems. And the first problem is, insulin resistance. And YOU MUST BREAK THAT INSULIN RESISTANCE, or the type 2 will spend the rest of their days either starving, or fighting a losing battle-- losing their feet, losing their kidneys, losing their eyesight, losing their cardiac and circulatory system.
The food pyramid is KILLING Americans.
