One of the things I’ve read about lately, as I research all the information connected with Slow Carb eating, is that diabetics have been advised for years to eat a diet consisting of many carbohydrates. According the the research collected and reported on by Gary Taubes, this is one of the things that prevents diabetics from ever getting well.
The standard approved diet is:
- Limiting sweets
- Eating often
- Being careful about when and how many carbohydrates you eat
- Eating lots of whole-grain foods, fruits and vegetables
- Eating less fat
- Limiting your use of alcohol
So although they are told to be careful about how many carbohydrates they eat, the very next instruction pushes whole grain foods and fruits — wait a minute! Whole grain foods and fruits are carbohydrates! And they are foods that are guaranteed to push blood sugar up. Fruit is filled with sugar and all starches raise blood sugar. There is no mention of protein and they tell you to limit fat — two foods that will not in any way raise blood sugar.
Meanwhile, there is enormous evidence that eating a very low carb diet — slow carb, really — can actually improve the blood-work results of diabetics and give them a happier, more healthy life. Here’s one guy’s take on it.
As you may know, there are so many godawful things that happen to a human body that is diabetic. One of those is kidney failure — so this article about using a Ketogenic Diet to cure it really caught my eye. I’ve read a few different articles about the Ketogenic Diet and it fascinates me. Everybody from serious weight lifters to ordinary chubby people have tried it. And from what I’ve read, that diet — and also “going into ketosis” — is not anywhere near as dangerous as many doctors have lead us to believe. Still, I’m not advising the Ketogenic Diet. It is extreme.
The upshot is that although our medical professionals over the years have helped us in many ways, they have also ignored some evidence that didn’t jibe with their beliefs. That doesn’t serve us.
So if you, or someone you know, is diabetic, do some research and consider a Slow Carb Diet. Think about it…
And here is another article indicating that serious low carb eating may heal kidney disease.
