I can’t wait until Forks Over Knives with Dr. Neal Barnard comes to Bainbridge Island. I am really excited about watching this movie. According to Neal Barnard, M.D., plant-based eating is the cornerstone to treating type 2 diabetes. Part of the value of a low-fat, plant-based diet is that it is very low in saturated fat—that is, the kind of fat that is found especially in meats, dairy products, and tropical oils (coconut, palm, or palm kernel oil). If you have diabetes or are concerned about developing it, plant-based eating can change the course of your life. Although diabetes is a serious illness that all too often leads to heart problems, nerve damage, blindness, stroke, or kidney failure, it doesn’t have to be that way. If you don’t think that you can give up the cheeseburger, fries and chocolate malt, think again. With self-hypnosis, lifestyle change can be very easy. So if you think that living life free of diabetes tastes better than dieing from the food you have been eating, learn hypnosis. Isn’t it time that you become Slender For Life™?
Dr. Neal Barnard’s Program for Reversing Diabetes
A new book by nutrition researcher Neal Barnard, M.D., outlines a completely new dietary approach to preventing, controlling, and even reversing diabetes. The program is based on a series of research studies Dr. Barnard and his colleagues have conducted over the years, the latest funded by the National Institutes of Health. Published in the August 2006 issue of Diabetes Care, that study found Dr. Barnard’s program to be three times more effective than the American Diabetes Association dietary guidelines at controlling blood sugar.
The studies also show that by adopting a low-fat vegetarian diet—free of all animal products and added vegetable oils—individuals can lower their cholesterol, reduce their blood pressure, and lose weight. Best of all, the diet doesn’t demand one count calories, cut portion sizes, or give up all carbohydrates. On the contrary, you can eat as much as you want.
The book explains how the diet actually alters what goes on in an individual’s cells. Rather than just compensate for malfunctioning insulin, like other treatment plans, Dr. Barnard’s program helps repair how the body uses insulin. It also includes helpful tips on adopting a plant-based diet and more than 50 delicious and easy-to-make recipes.
Animal products contain fat, especially saturated fat, which is linked to heart disease, insulin resistance, and certain forms of cancer. These products also contain cholesterol, something never found in foods from plants. And, of course, animal products contain animal protein. Diets high in animal protein can aggravate kidney problems and calcium losses. Animal products never provide fiber or healthful complex carbohydrate. Plant-based eating does not require weighing or measuring, and you will never go hungry.
