Now, some of this is going to be controversial, but hey, it's working for me and I believe EVERY diabetic deserves to know. I was diagnosed in January of 2013, and my honeymooning period ended about 6 months ago. Ever since then I've been looking for an answer to my high blood sugar. I ate what I thought was a healthy diet, low carbs, low sodium, low fat, you name it. I ended up discovering this girl named Freelee the Banana Girl on youtube, and she is doing what she calls the 'Raw Till 4' diet. She eats high carb, low fat raw vegan diet until 4 pm, and doesn't eat anything three hours before bedtime. One of the biggest myths is that 'Carbs make you fat', well, it doesn't. I've lost 20 pounds the healthy way trying out this diet. I've been on it since around April, and my glucose levels are never above 140, and never below 75. And I'm type one. I still take my insulin, but this diet has completely changed my life. It can completely reverse type 2, but unfortunately my pancreas produces no insulin. I feel better physically, emotionally, and spiritually. I no longer have panic attacks either. I'm not asking you to completely change your diet, but please just look into it. I just did my first blood test, and my a1c was 5.2, and my protein levels, b12, and iron are better than it has ever been. My diet consists of in the morning, I drink a full glass of water, drink a fruit and fruit juice smoothie, for lunch I just binge on fruit, and for dinner I eat a cooked vegan meal. No restrictions. My diet is basically 93% fruit, and 7% vegetables. Now like I said in the beginning, I know that this is very controversial, but I'm just sharing my experience with this diet. I'm not telling you to switch to it, but just look up Freelee the banana girl. She changed my life. This diet started when I found out the FDA completely dropped its regulations on produced meat. And then I noticed the started putting aspartame in milk, and both milk and meats were making me sick. Plus I love animals. I'm just mad at myself I didn't start this diet sooner. I've never felt more in touch with reality, my surroundings, and nature.
Having diabetes is hard, and I want to do all that I can do to help.
