Diabetes: Diabetes Diet: Foods You Wish You Knew To Reverse Diabetes:: 20 Superfoods, Herbs & Drinks To Change Your Life

Mark’s Note:
I am skeptical of any book that promises to reverse or cure diabetes or claims I can still eat all my favorite foods. From my experience that is just not true. I agree with the author though that just using medication to make your symptoms go away is not the answer either. Diet, eating certain diabetes friendly foods and herbs and spices though is not a bad idea so you might pick up some valuable information but as always use your own common sense and test, test, test.

Prediabetes ; Not the End of The World

Almost 90 million Americans have it, but even though the condition can carry long-term life-threatening consequences, they may have no idea of the dangers.

Prediabetes  which, in up to 30 percent of cases, can lead to full-blown Type 2 diabetes within five years, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention .

“It’s not a doomsday message, and it doesn’t mean you have to turn your whole world upside down because you’re prediabetic,” says Renu Mansukhani, a doctor at the National Center for Weight and Wellness in Washington in a recent Wahington Post article.

“Even just small lifestyle changes can make a big difference,” Mansukhani says.

First, , if you get a blood test back that indicates you are prediabetic, talk to your doctor about what it means and whether you should retake the test, as false positives are common.

If a second test comes back positive, make small, incremental lifestyle changes that will improve the condition for most people — but not all.

Diet: The first piece of the puzzle




One thing you do have control over is what you eat on a daily basis.

Having prediabetes doesn’t mean you can never eat a doughnut again, but it needs to be a rare treat.

The idea is to replace  simple carbohydrates (such as processed foods, fruit and milk products) with complex ones (whole grains, beans and vegetables), says Rebecca Scritchfield, a registered dietitian in Washington.

“You want to get quality carbs with lots of fiber with each meal. Combine that with protein and fat, and you can avoid spikes in your blood sugar,” Scritchfield says.

Still, she doesn’t suggest that you cut out fruit because it’s relatively high in sugar.

Pick fruits with less sugar — like berries and kiwi,” she says.

Fruit juices, though, should be avoided. They lack fiber and are high in sugar, a combination that often creates blood sugar spikes.

So instead of a glass of orange juice, eat an orange and drink a glass of water.

Along with complex carbs such as vegetables (which should take up half your plate), your meal should have protein and fat, which will help you feel satiated and “stop you from overeating carbs.


Exercise-The Second Piece

But there is another way — along with food changes, or by itself — to reduce the amount of sugar getting stuck in your bloodstream: Exercise.

Because sugar is the No. 1 fuel that muscles use for movement, exercise helps lower blood sugar.

“The big, overarching thing about exercise is that it is one of the most efficient ways to reduce insulin resistance [and lower blood glucose levels],” says Kyle Stull, a master instructor for the National Academy of Sports Medicine.

Insulin is a hormone created in the pancreas that helps deliver sugar (from food) to the muscle cells (for movement).

When insulin is resistant, it is less effective in getting the sugar — the fuel — to the muscle cells.

But with exercise, insulin becomes more sensitive, Stull says, and some studies show that blood glucose levels fall by as much as 15 percent or more after aerobic exercise.

In fact, one study showed that just 20 minutes of moderate exercise could reduce diabetes risk by 46 percent.

It has also been shown that exercise even without weight loss can reduce the risk significantly but that weight loss combined with exercise is even more effective.

What kind of exercise is the most effective, and how much of it should you do?

The recommended amount of moderate aerobic training is 30 minutes per day, he says. You can also shorten the duration and up the intensity for similar improvements, he says.

Resistance training has also been shown to help control blood sugar, and a benefit of resistance training is the building of lean body mass, leading to improved resting metabolic rate and weight loss.

“The main thing is to do something,” Stull says. “Time is the biggest obstacle. But if you can just do 10 to 20 minutes, it will make a difference.”

What if you make all these positive changes and your blood glucose level still isn’t going down — and maybe it even goes up over time?

“It’s not your fault,” Mansukhani says. “We know there is a group that doesn’t respond. In their case, medication might be necessary.” Some patients even undergo weight-loss surgery to help deal with their increased risk,

Bear in mind that incremental lifestyle changes that encourage less stress, more sleep, healthier eating and more exercise have benefits beyond diabetes prevention.   Remember, baby steps.

“Don’t try to cut carbs completely — you’re setting yourself up. But maybe choose an apple instead of an apple crisp or doughnut,” Scritchfield says.

Change your diet and add some exercise and monitor and track your blood sugar and you will be headed in the right direction.

Reversing Type 2 diabetes starts with ignoring the guidelines | Sarah Hallberg | TEDxPurdueU

Can a person be “cured” of Type 2 Diabetes? Dr. Sarah Hallberg provides compelling evidence that it can, and the solution is simpler than you might think.


Mark’s Note:I agree 100% with what she says.  Take away the cause! (Carbs)  The American Diabetes Association is not someone I listen to.  I don’t agree with their guidelines in particular for carbs.

Use of Resistant Starches to lower blood sugar levels


What Is  a Resistant Starch?

When you think of “starch,” what enters your mind particularly if you are diabetic?

Glucose. Carbs.  an elevated blood sugar level. Insulin spikes. . Basically, we  consider starch that we  can digest, absorb, and metabolize as glucose .

Officially, resistant starch is “the sum of starch and products of starch degradation not absorbed in the small intestine of healthy individuals.” Instead of being reduced by our enzymes and absorbed as glucose, resistant starch  travels whole through the small intestine into the colon, where colonic gut flora metabolize it into short chain fatty acids. Thus, it’s resistant to digestion by the host.

There are four types of resistant starch:

Type 1– Starch bound by indigestible plant cell walls; found in beans, grains, and seeds.

Type 2– Starch that is intrinsically indigestible in the raw state because of its high amylose content; found in potatoes, bananas, plantains, that becomes accessible upon heating.

Type 3– Retrograded starch; when some starches have been cooked, cooling them (fridge or freezer) changes the structure and renders it more resistant to digestion; found in cooked and cooled potatoes, grains, and beans.

Type 4– Industrial resistant starch; tthat doesn’t occur naturally and has been chemically modified; commonly found in “hi-maize resistant starch.”

It’s almost certain that these different types have  different effects on our gut flora, but the specifics have yet to become fully studied.

Where Do We find Resistant Starches?

We can get them from food. The richest food sources are raw potatoes, green bananas, plantains, cooked-and-cooled potatoes, cooked-and-cooled-rice, parboiled rice, and cooked-and-cooled legumes.

We can get them from supplementary isolated  sources. The most effective sources are raw potato starch, plantain flour, green banana flour, and cassava/tapioca starch. Raw (not sprouted) mung beans are a good source , so mung bean starch (commonly available in Asian grocers) will probably work, too.

One of the most reliable ways to obtain resitant starch, quickly is with raw potato starch. There are about 8 grams of resitant starch in a tablespoon of easily the most popular brand: Bob’s Red Mill Unmodified Potato Starch. 

How can this help me and my diabetes?

Like other organisms, gut bacteria requires food. They have to eat, and certain food sources are better than others. Basically resistant starch is top-shelf food for your gut bugs.


Resistant starch promotes greater butyrate production than other prebiotics. Since the resident gut flora produce the butyrate, and everyone has different levels of the different flora, the degree of butyrate production varies depending on the individual, but resistant starch consistently leads to  considerable amounts of butyrate across nearly every subject who consumes it. Butyrate is crucial because it’s the prime energy source of our colonic cells .

Resitant starch improves insulin sensitivity

Resitant starch lowers the blood glucose response to food.

Resitant starch reduces fasting blood sugar.

Resistant starch makes you feel full and satisfied

Resistant starch increases dietary magnesium absorption.

Some people using or supplementing their diet with resistant starch report:

Improved body composition.

Improved thyroid function.

Improved sleep,

Decreased Anxiety

Not everyone has a good reaction to using resitant starches in their diet.  It can give you gas. Add it slowly to your diet maybe a teaspoon or a half teaspoon  a day if you are using potato starch gradually up to 2 TBSP. per day.  You also could eat half of a green banana.  You may also need to take a quality probiotic.

New Study Links White Wine To Lowering Risk Of Diabetes-Related Vision Issues


Love a nice glass of wine after a long day or work? Or maybe it’s your drink of choice when you’re out with friends? Either way, we adore wine just as much as you — and one of our favorites? Well, white wine, of course!

While you’ve probably heard about the many healthy benefits of red wine, in an awesome turn of events,a new studyhas revealed something incredible about white wine. The Center for Eye Research at the University of Melbourne in Australia has recently discovered that diabetics who drink white wine have a lower risk of eyesight loss caused by diabetes-related complications.

Great news, right? The research dove a little deeper, too. Apparently, those who drank moderate amounts of white wine had a 2.4 percent risk of eyesight loss, while red wine drinkers had a 12.2 percent risk.

While these findings are undeniably fascinating, currently, researchers are unsure as to why exactly white wine has such a positive effect on diabetic risk of eyesight loss. Clearly, there is more research to be done — but we’re pretty excited to finally be seeing clearly when it comes to our wine!

Mark’s Note; 5 oz. glass with meal.  Here is another article  that you might find interesting.  Because wine  or any alcohol converts to sugar I would also closely monitor my glucose levels by testing to see if the benefits outweigh the risk and obviously if you have more than one glass you have defeated the benefit.

So THAT’S Why We Should Be Eating Chia Seeds

Chia seeds are becoming a bigger and bigger part of the health food scene. And if you’re someone who makes an effort to eat healthier, you may have dabbled in a chia seed recipe or two. These tiny black seeds are tasteless — and undergo a really cool gelatinous transformation when wet — so they’re easy enough to incorporate into your diet. But do you have any idea why you should actually be doing so?

As much as we like chia seed pudding, we wondered if chia was really worth all the hype so we analyse — and what we find was a echoing yes. If you’re looking to add more good-for-you foods into your diet, chia is a great ingredient to incorporate. Here are the five main reasons why :

1. They’re full of our favorite thing: antioxidants.

Antioxidants are good not only good for our cells — protecting them from the effects of free radicals — but they’re great for our skin, too. That could mean fewer wrinkles in the future.

2. A small serve of chia seeds has as much Omega-3 fatty acids in 2 tablespoons as 4 ounces of salmon.

It can be hard to get the recommended sum of Omega-3s without OD-ing on salmon. Chia seeds can help you give the filet a break.

3. Chia seeds are loaded with fiber.

Two tablespoons of chia seeds contain 10 grams of fiber, which is roughly 30 percent of the recommended daily intake. A high fiber diet is said reduce the risk of a number of chronic diseases.

4. They are high in protein, too.

Four grams for each serve( which is two tablespoons ). That might not sound like a lot, but it adds up.

5. Chia seeds contain loads of calcium.

This is great news for anyone who doesn’t like — or just can’t — do dairy. The seeds contain five times more calcium than milk per ounce.

And just look at all the delicious things you can attain with them.
