Low Carb Diabetic Diet Plan Manages Type 2 Diabetes

Low Carb Diabetic Diet Plan Manages Type 2 Diabetes

 

Low Carb Diet Helps to Lower Your Blood Sugar and  Manage Your Type 2 Diabetes

We all know that eating healthy foods is critical to lowering and controlling your blood sugars. But, what most people don't know is that some of the foods that are considered "healthy" are actually not healthy for people with Type 2 diabetes!

For example, when I first started researching about food and diabetes, I learned that eating oatmeal in the morning was not the best thing for my diabetes!

Instead I replaced the oatmeal with broccoli, Brussels sprouts and spinach (low-carb vegetables) and my blood sugar started to drop almost immediately! 

As a result, I was able to wean off my insulin and other medications within 3.5 months.

Just try a low-carb vegetable (like broccoli) for breakfast (along with some wild salmon for the protein and extra virgin olive oil for the fat); and, watch your blood sugars start to come down. Hard to believe, right? Just try it -- you'll be pleasantly surprised.

The Death to Diabetes Nutritional Program (aka DTD Diet) utilizes principles of a vegetable-based Low Carb Diet. Why is that important? Because vegetables provide key vitamins, minerals and other nutrients that diabetics need to fight their diabetes.

Also, there are some low carb diets that do not emphasize vegetables, so don't assume that all low carb diets are equal and have the same effect on your blood sugar and diabetes.

The Death to Diabetes Nutritional Program (aka DTD Diet) also utilizes principles of the Low Carb High Fat (LCHF) Diet, the Vegetarian Diet, and the Ketogenic Diet.

However, the DTD Diet goes beyond these other diets by identifying the key nutrients that a diabetic needs to prevent and treat diabetic complications such as kidney problems (nephropathy), eye problems (retinopathy), heart disease, nerve problems (neuropathy) and amputation. 

Note: If you want lots of healthy diabetic recipes associated with the Death to Diabetes Program, then, get the 3-in-1 Death to Diabetes Cookbook.

If you want to learn how to start a keto or LCHF diet; or, learn how to do intermittent fasting properly, then, get the Low Carb Diets book.

Health Benefits of the DTD Diet Plan

The Death to Diabetes Nutritional Program (aka DTD Diet) provides many health  benefits, especially for people who are struggling with managing and controlling Type 2 diabetes.

Some of those benefits include the following:

  • Turn your body into a fat-burning machine!
  • Lower your blood glucose level to the normal range
  • Control your diabetes 
  • Lose weight effortlessly and permanently
  • Lose the belly fat and feel energized!
  • Lower blood pressure!
  • Lower cholesterol
  • Less pain and discomfort
  • No nutrient deficiencies
  • Save your hard-earned money!
  • No need for toxic drugs! (and their side effects)
  • Enjoy eating without the anxiety!
  • Look good and feel good!
  • Avoid the "insulin addiction" trap!
  • Enjoy weddings, picnics, birthday parties, and other social events!
  • Enjoy a better sex life!
  • Surprise your friends who will think you had a face-lift or liposuction!
  • Prevent a heart attack, stroke, blindness, amputation, or kidney failure!

In addition, this nutritional program is easy to implement and does not require any calorie or carb counting as long as you adhere to the Super Meal Plate Model (see below).

Although this DTD Diet has some of the attributes of a low carb high fat (LCHF) diet, it is a lot more than that because it addresses the root causes and biological processes that fuel Type 2 diabetes.

Which Foods Are Best for Type 2 Diabetics?

There are a lot of diets that proclaim that they know which foods are best for you.

But, seriously, do you really know which foods are best for you and your Type 2 diabetes?

Is there a book out there that clearly explains what foods to eat vs not eat to control your diabetes?

The 5 "Live"  Foods to Eat on the Type 2 Diabetes Low Carb Diet

If you want to be able to plan and prepare meals that will help you to better control your blood sugar and better manage your diabetes, then, you need to know what foods you should be eating.

Here is the first diagram that I created for my public talks and lectures to show the audience what are the key "live" foods that they should be eating.

The 5 Live Super Foods

These 5 "live" foods that you should eat include:

  • Low carbs, e.g. vegetables, some whole fruits
  • Lean proteins, e.g. fatty fish, nuts/seeds, beans, grass-fed meat
  • Healthy fats, e.g. extra virgin olive oil, extra virgin coconut oil, extra virgin avocado oil
  • Healthy beverages, e.g. filtered/distilled water, raw juice, nut milk, herbal tea

These 5 foods contain the key vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients that diabetics need in order to control their blood sugar and manage their diabetes more effectively.

The 5 "Dead" Foods to Avoid on the Type 2 Diabetes Low Carb Diet 

Here is the second diagram that I created to show the audience what are the key foods to avoid, especially if they wanted to lower their blood sugar and preent the insulin spikes.

These 5 "dead" foods that you should avoid include:

  • Flour, starches, e.g. cereal, bread, pasta, rice, potatoes
  • Sugar, sweets, e.g. cakes, pies, candy, soda, fruit juice
  • Trans fats, e.g. margarine, vegetable oil, fried foods
  • Saturated fats, e.g. lunch meat, animal meat, hard cheese
  • Drugs, e.g. OTC, prescription, recreational

These 5 foods contain harmful chemicals and toxins that help to trigger diseases like Type 2 diabetes, Type 3 diabetes (Alzheimer's), heart disease and cancer.

In addition, these 5 foods lack the key nutrients that diabetics need in order to control their blood sugar and properly manage their diabetes.  

Now that you know what foods to eat and avoid, it makes it easier to shop for groceries as well as design diabetic-friendly meals.

Refer to the Diabetic Meal Plan/Plate Model web page to see what your plate should look like in order to be diabetic-friendly.

If you want a lot of healthy diabetic meals to help you control your blood sugar and manage your diabetes, then, get the Diabetes Cookbook.
