After years of diabetes dancing ( shaking my booty as I type this)..and reading in amounts that no human being should undertake without a spare pair of eyes…I have come to the conclusion..That when it comes to diabetes " control" both sides are correct.. yep…you heard it here first…Now you may be wondering what this mad women is talking about…
Any person who has been keeping up with the research over the last few years understands that insulin resistance is caused by fat mucking ( sorry for the highly technical term) up our cells insulin receptors…it seems that unclogging or unmucking helps to BIGLY ( sorry have to say it at least once a day) restore insulin sensativity..
Enter the radically low carb diet that burns the fat in our body for fuel…nice..burns all of the fat clogging our cells and in turn restores insulin sensativity…keep carbs super low..for as long as if takes an individual to clear their cells ..and as long as they dont reclogg them by returning to their previous eating patterns they should be golden..
Enter Dr. McDougal..Dr.Banard and those types with their very low fat..oil free plant based diets that at the end of the day do exactly the same thing..just through different means..they unmuck the clogged cells..
We can argue all day about the ramifications of either approach..the rad low carb group will argue we need fat to live..i argue that a properly executed plant based no oil, less than 10 percent of calories from fat diet would only be necessary for 6 mos to a year ( short term theraputic diet) after which one can introduce more nuts..seeds..avacado…and nut buttrrs (NO OIL) Back into their diet..
The plant eaters ( of which i am now one)..will argue high meat consumption elevates igf1 levels and also causes oxidized stress to ones arteries…to which i just eat a little meat once in a while..and mix it up with a crap ton of veg…because again..a very low carb diet should unclog your cells in no more than 6 months to 1 year if properly executed.
That is my story and i am sticking to it.
I unclogged my cells guess is mostly through hard core keto..but today i live as a NO OIL..low fat plant based keep my cells from reclogging…I broke it..I fixed it..and i will not rebrake it..

Yes, changes in prior habits are essential to regaining control. Glad it's working for you. I've also learned, in my 41 years with diabetes that it is a constant adaptation to seek and retain that balance. As we age, our bodies throw us some curves. Thanks for sharing what's worked for you.
