Type Two Diabetes On A Raw Food Diet

by Stuart
(South Africa)

Stuart's Question: Can you give some guidelines on how a raw food diet should be implemented for someone with Type Two Diabetes?

Andrew's Answer:First off, I'm going to give my usual caveat here. I'm not a doctor, and my advice cannot replace the advice of a medical professional.

That being said, a raw food diet that is both low in fat and high if fruit can not only prevent, but also reverse type two diabetes.

Type Two Diabetes is very clearly a disease that is brought on by poor dietary and lifestyle factors (unlike type one). By reversing these, improvements are often seen at an astonishing pace.

Many type two diabetics I've coached -some of who have have been suffering with it for decades- report lowering their insulin use by 70 percent in the first week, and being totally off insulin in the first month.

How should type two diabetics go about adopting a raw food diet?

High fat intake, which inhibits the movement of blood sugar, is the main cause of type two, as has been shown in numerous studies.

Although I always recommend a diet that is low in fat, I suggest type two diabetics eat no overt fat at all until they're off insulin.

I don't recommend any sort of compromise diet which includes cooked food.

Getting enough sleep - as many hours as a person can manage to stay asleep, really - is also critical, as are a host of other lifestyle factors.

Other than that, there aren't many deviations from my standard diet recommendations because the same raw food diet that allows the body to heal also allows the body to run optimally over the long run.

It would, of course, be irresponsible of me to leave anyone with the impression that there is a universal recommendation that will work for all diabetics.

Everyone has a unique body with unique needs. Those with serious medical conditions stemming from their diabetes should seek professional help.
