    The diet you are promoting will keep diabetics diabetic, perhaps that is the agenda, imagine if everyone managed to reverse their condition, thousands of jobs lost, big pharma losing billions, perhaps there is an agenda?

    rice, bread, pasta, cereals? no, no, no and no. Why is the NHS supporting the corrupt food industry, it’s a disgrace. I feel sorry for this woman, having to repeat the garbage she has been provided. If the woman in the video is reading this, do yourself a favour, take an intensive course, just watching youtube videos of Barbara O’neil. Watch them all.

    If I followed this gods awful advice, I’d still be on 2000 mg of Metformin per day, still fat, and still SICK! Does the NHS get kickbacks from big food and big pharmaceuticals?

    I’ve been LCHF for three years. What has low carb done for my T2? Let’s see. I have wonderful Hba1c’s. I started at 62.9% and am now 30.2%. My good cholesterol went up. I lost almost 70 pounds.

    Sorry, I tried to follow that silly food pyramid of the ADA and NHS,. I became more sick. No thanks. Get educated on what "truly" works, and not what you’re scripted to say.

    Well, I know this 2012 footage is relatively old, yet here we are, almost 2020, and we are still being – excuse the pun – fed this nonsense!
    Bread, pasta, rice and potatoes: Why not chuck in a couple of jam doughnuts? And ‘healthy’ vegetable oils -really?

    Oddly enough, the diet being recommended by this ‘health professional’ sounds very similar to the diet that I followed until I was finally diagnosed with T2D.

    Once I’d been issued my blood glucose test gadget, and rejected the offer of insulin, statins and ACE inhibitors, I took a trip to Waterstones, where I started my own health education.

    Well, I decided to do the exact opposite of the absolutely terrible advice offered in the above video. Result: Normal A1c within months. This, without medication. I was told that avoiding an ‘essential’ macronutrient – carbohydrate – is unhealthy and dangerous. Really? I thought essential referred to nutrition that the body cannot make by itself. Vitamin C, or essential amino acids, for example. What about neoglucogenesis?
    Three years later, and I’m still in the normal – non diabetic – A1c range without medication. I’m still being offered the ACE inhibitors and statins – just in case, you understand – to bring down my ‘high’ 116/63 BP and super-normal Cholesterol levels.

    Either our presenter here is a wee bit dim, and couldn’t find the library, or just telling porkies!

    thanks for your help. I reversed my diabetes following this natural treatment: *thebigdiabetes-lie. com* (search it on the internet) It’s about changing your diet for something more natural.

    Carbs do turn to sugar, but that’s the whole point. Use complex carbs and your body takes longer to convert them into sugar (hence she says "low GI carbohydrates…slower to absorb…". Therefore, your body gets a more steady input of sugar when you eat better, more complex, carbohydrates. There is no contradiction.
    Of course if you eat endless amounts of complex carbs, you will still end up with high blood sugar… but you’ll end up overweight too. There’s no "eat all you want" option, folks.

    Thank you very much for the advice. I cure my type 2 diabetes following a natural method here you can see it: *thebigdiabetes-lie. com* (Google it) greetings and good luck.

    It specifically says eat less sugar but carbohydrate turns into sugar when digested so basically is a form of sugar hence this advice contradicts itself.

    This “Vαnοjο Fivu” (Google it) is the most sensible and easy to understand plan for general health as well as curing diabetes. By this plan, you can transform your diet and lifestyle without getting particular about your carb or calorie. My transition to a more healthy way of living has not just helped me lose fat but also recover from diabetes as well as high blood pressure! The guide can really help you heal diabetic issues..
