“Timing” Trick REVERSES Diabetes in 3 MONTHS
A diabetes diagnosis can feel like a death sentence. And it’s not only because the disease can shorten your life…
Diabetes signals the death of enjoying your favorite foods. The death of good times dining out with family and friends. The death of your LIFE as you know it.
BUT it doesn’t have to. Diabetes doesn’t even have to be permanent.
In fact, if you have type 2 diabetes, take a look at your calendar. Today is December 29th.
Now flip forward three months. Imagine that by the end of March, you could be in complete diabetes remission—and off ALL your diabetes drugs.
A recent study showed that a simple Chinese therapy can make this dream a reality.
Previous studies have shown that intermittent fasting (when you don’t eat for a period of time) can help PREVENT type 2 diabetes.
But now, an exciting small study has found that this easy-to-understand technique can also CURE it.
Researchers recruited 36 type 2 diabetics and had a group of them follow a Chinese Medical Nutrition Therapy (CMNT), which consisted of six cycles of the following:
- 5 days of an intermittent, calorie-restricted diet
- followed by 10 days of eating whatever they wanted
After three months of following this simple program almost 90 percent of the participants had reduced their need for diabetes medications. And 55 percent of the intermittent fasting group achieved REMISSION of their type 2 diabetes, discontinued diabetes medication, and maintained it for a year.
Remission is defined as an HbA1c level (a measurement of blood sugar over time) of 6.5 percent for at least three months after stopping all antidiabetic medications.
Compare that to less than 3 percent of those in the control group.
In addition, the intermittent fasting group lost about 13 pounds (compared to half a pound in the control group).
Even after one full year, 44 percent of the patients who had done the intermittent fasting were STILL in remission.
Now I’m not going to sugarcoat it. This diabetes cure isn’t the “easy” route. Changing your diet and limiting your food intake takes dedication and work.
But this technique is as straightforward as it gets. In fact, I practice intermittent fasting myself.
There are various forms you can choose from. But I prefer the 8:16 method. I eat for 8 hours a day, and I don’t eat for the other 16.
And as for the “calorie restriction” aspect of this approach, I suggest going low carb. That means sticking to 40 grams of carbs per day and increasing that to 60 grams for maintenance once you achieve your goals.
P.S. For some extra help keeping your blood sugar in check, focus on your gut. But NOT in the way you’re probably thinking. I’ve got all the details here.

Just because something is common, it DOESN’T make it safe. And neither does “being natural” mean it’s okay for everyone. This is true of anything—including supplements.
