The Reverse-Your-Diabetes Diet
Note: If you adhere to the raw diet version of the "Death to Diabetes" Super Meal Model Plate Diet, you will notice your blood glucose readings start to come down almost immediately! And, if you adhere to the complete program, including the detox, exercise, and drug weaning, you can get your blood glucose readings back to the normal range within 30 days!
The "Death to Diabetes" Super Meal Model Plate (Diet for Diabetics) has many of the attributes of the Mediterranean Diet, Zone Diet, South Beach Diet, Raw Food Diet, and Asian Diet, with critical nutritional modifications to address the real root causes of Type 2 diabetes and help to better control Type 1 diabetes with less insulin requirements.
The "Death to Diabetes" Super Meal Model Plate (Diet for Diabetics) is part of a comprehensive 10-step and 6-stage clinically-proven diabetes wellness program that is designed to stop the rot and improve the health of people suffering with Type 2 diabetes as well as with Type 1 diabetes.
This super meal model is a diet designed for diabetics, as well as non-diabetics because it helps to strengthen the immune system and address obesity, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, heart disease, chronic fatigue, and other similar systemic ailments.
Some people see this super meal model (diet for diabetics) as a"low carb" diet, but, the author sees it as a lot more than just a "low-carb" diet. He prefers the term "balanced" diet because there is a balance of carbs, proteins, and fats that improves the overall health and wellness of the body.
Consequently, this super meal model can be used by non-diabetics, who want to lose weight, lower their blood pressure, or just improve their overall health.
This "Death to Diabetes" Super Meal Model Plate (Diet for Diabetics) utilizes the 5 super foods to create combo-super foods, combo-super meals, and super snacks, including omelets, casseroles, salads, sandwiches, smoothies, soups, stews, and stir-frys. And, don't forget the importance of key minerals such as magnesium, potassium, chromium, and real salt -- all working together to stop the rot and repair the damage.
Note: The Super Meal Model was designed by the author to make it easier for diabetics (and non-diabetics) to design healthy, balanced meals without having to spend a lot of time counting calories and carbohydrates. Calorie-counting ((and carb counting)) can be time-consuming and very frustrating. And, given everything that a diabetic has to deal with, the author felt it was important to keep things as simple as possible.
Note: Most people just throw veggies and other foods together to create these combo-super meals, but these meals are out-of-balance and lack the proper balance of macronutrients and micronutrents. Without a proper balance of macronutrients and micronutrents, these combo-super meals do not contain the necessary nutrients to help you fight your diabetes! So, take out the guesswork and get the cookbook.
Please Note: If you are taking a blood thinner (such as Coumadin), you can still eat green vegetables as long as you eat a consistent amount on a daily basis. But, always consult with your physician before making any dietary changes.
Author's Note: There is a misunderstanding that people who take a blood thinner can't eat green vegetables because the Vitamin K in the vegetables counteracts the blood thinner. This is not true! I was told to avoid green vegetables when I was on a blood thinner. But, I found out after doing some research that I could eat green vegetables as long as I did it on a consistent basis every day. I believe that if I had stopped eating the green vegetables, I would have remained diabetic and would have remained on insulin. In addition, more than likely, I would probably not be alive today.
The "Death to Diabetes" Super Meal Model is truly THE Diabetes Diet for Diabetics, because it is specifically designed to help control Type 1 diabetes and to help defeat and reverse Type 2 diabetes -- by providing a more sustained level of energy and key nutrients that diabetics (and non-diabetics) are missing when they consume the more traditional grain-based, overly-processed, nutrient-poor or starchy meal.
The "Death to Diabetes" Super Meal Model has a very nutrient-dense protocol that provides nutrients that are key to the effectiveness of THE Diabetes Diet including: carotenoids, antioxidants, Omega-3 EFAs (EPA, DHA), chlorophyll, magnesium, potassium, chromium, Vitamin E, Vitamin C, fiber, water -- all designed to stop the rot and repair the damage caused by the diabetes (and the diabetic medications).
These critical nutrients help to strengthen your immune system, so that it can defend your body while initiating the necessary repair processes to repair the damage caused by the diabetes.
In addition, by avoiding the grain-based breakfast, the 5 "dead" foods, and many of the so-called “healthy” foods, diabetics and non-diabetics will not experience the mid-morning “crash” or craving for processed food/beverages. Over time, the "Death to Diabetes" Super Meal Model Plate (Diet for Diabetics) will support blood glucose stabilization, cell repair and the regulation of the body's production and utilization of insulin.
Note: Refer to the clinical studies, including the China Study, which substantiate the benefits of a plant-based nutritional program to prevent and possibly reverse the effects of heart disease, diabetes, and some cancers.
