DEFEAT Diabetes with the Caveman Secret
On Friday, I told you about a study showing that prediabetes can progress to type 2 diabetes in as little as one year.
Today, I want to tell you about a diet that could help you prevent diabetes – especially if you’re in this camp.
It can also help manage blood sugar levels if you’ve already been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes.
If you’re looking for a quick fix, this is it.
It’s been shown to stabilize blood sugar in as little as 2 weeks.
When it comes to lifestyle, the closer you can get to nature, the better.
That’s why I like to follow the lead of our caveman ancestors.
For me, this means spending as much time outdoors as possible, going barefoot, and eating foods provided by the land in their season.
I’m also a fan of what’s known as the caveman diet.
It’s high in protein and low in carbs, and it’s what our caveman “hunter-gatherer” ancestors would have eaten.
It emphasizes meat and vegetables, and reduces (or eliminates) processed food.
This diet is beneficial for everyone, not just type 2 diabetics. But if you’re dealing with blood sugar issues, keep reading.
In a small study, 14 people with type 2 diabetes followed a caveman diet. After just two weeks, they had STABILIZED their blood sugar levels and lowered their blood pressure.
It also improved insulin sensitivity.
And in a second randomized, controlled study, researchers found that when type 2 diabetics followed a caveman diet for 12 weeks, their blood sugar control improved and their body fat was reduced.
Contrast that with the plant-based, low-carb diet recommended by the American Diabetes Association.
The study showed that individuals who followed this diet had basically NO improvement in blood sugar levels.
Researchers are left scratching their heads over why such an “unhealthy” meat (and fat) heavy diet would have such dramatic health benefits.
And I’m left scratching my own head at why this would be so confusing to so-called experts.
Carbohydrates increase your blood sugar. Certain carbs lead to blood sugar spikes, which are particularly dangerous.
Do you know what doesn’t do that? Meat. Seafood. Healthy fats. Fiber.
In addition, eating more fiber decreases sugar uptake from your intestines. So when you do eat sugar, less of it ends up in your bloodstream.
You control the dial on your blood sugar with what you put in your mouth.
Don’t eat foods that increase your blood sugar levels, and you won’t end up with high blood sugar. You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to understand that.
What I can’t understand is why the American Diabetes Association and other organizations that dole out health advice continue to demonize the very diet that produces the best results.
P.S. Eating like a caveman to head off rising blood sugar is a great start. But don’t quit there. Low levels of THIS vital vitamin increase your risk of developing diabetes. Find out what you need to know here.
