In 1992, I was diagnosed with diabetes. I had probably been diabetic for several years or more before that. Diabetes is a disease that is often undiagnosed. There are millions of people walking the earth today who are diabetic and don’t even know it.
When I was diagnosed my wife and I went for one week, as I recall, to some training at the hospital of how to address diabetes and keep it under control. After going to those training sessions I tried doing those things, but it really did not seem to be helping my diabetes at all, so I just went back to the way that I was eating before.
Over the years, I would try eating the way that the American Diabetes Association recommended, but it never seemed to help me. I would always go back to eating whatever I wanted. I would take my oral medications for diabetes, but just continued to eat whatever I wanted to eat. Off and on I would try different things to try to help my diabetes get under control, but it just never worked. At the time I was diagnosed, I was at my peak weight, and I never really gained any weight, but I also did not lose weight for about another decade.
As it turned out, the things that they were advising about diabetes in those days completely wrong. Later in my life, over just the last couple of years, I have basically been eating the exact opposite of what they advised me, now, I no longer use any medications, no insulin, and I actually no longer have diabetes. 25 years a diabetic, damage done to my body because of it, and changing to eating a high-fat diet, and a little or no carbs made my diabetes go away. Gee, I wish I had known that 20 or 25 years ago. It would’ve saved me a lot of agony. It would have made me much healthier, and some damage that I have Artie done in my body that I had diabetes would not have happened. For example, my vision is very bad, and I am lucky that I’m not blind. If I had gotten my diabetes in good shape years ago, that would’ve never happened. But, by following that old advice, I would have never gotten my diabetes under control.
So, as I said previously, a couple of years back I started eating a ketogenic diet. High-fat, moderate protein, and almost no carbs at all. Then, last year, I augmented that by doing a lot of fasting. Although I did not keep track of the days and wish I would have, I would say that I fasted around 200 days in 2017. That is when I cured my diabetes. I say I cured my diabetes, because my doctors had nothing to do with it, and I was actually doing the opposite of what my doctors recommended. But, when they saw the results of what I was doing, they were very impressed, and actually seemed to take credit for it. Well, I know the truth though.
Not taking control of my diabetes was the wrong thing to do, and it was very stupid. But, 25 years ago there really was nobody saying that eating a high-fat diet would cure diabetes. Nobody said that fasting would eliminate the disease. In fact, probably the majority of doctors today are still not believing or saying that. Well, I know that this type of eating will eliminate diabetes because I’ve seen it happen before my very eyes. I have also seen others who have taken the same path that I have taken, and their diabetes is gone as well.
What about you? Do you have diabetes? If so, let me tell you from my own experience, 10 years down the road, perhaps more, or perhaps less, you can look forward to a lot of ailments. Heart attack. Starting to go blind. I know many diabetics who have had limbs amputated. Thankfully, I did not follow the path until that happened. It is not very hard to change, maybe it will be uncomfortable for a week or two, but once you become adapted, it is a very easy lifestyle to maintain.
Want to join me? Want to get rid of your diabetes? You don’t need medicine, you just need the right type of food. And, most people will think when I say the right type of food that you will have to starve yourself. That is just not true. You can have very good meals, large meals, you just have to eat the right things.
Give it a shot! I wish I had if only I had known about this 20 or 25 years ago. You do know it if you are reading this. And believe me, it will save your life and save your health.
