What Is The Best Diet For Diabetes?

The One That Improves  Your Sensitivity to Insulin & Improves Your Metabolic Health

The Diet For Insulin Sensitivity

Through our programs and community, we help people with diabetes to improve their relationships with their diabetes and with food. We do this through a powerful combination of evidence based nutritional principles and effective behavioral change techniques so that people can free their feelings about their diabetes and their diet.

 

 

 

 

There is an ideal diet for diabetes, but low carbohydrate have convinced us that carbohydrates are bad for peopole with diabetes because they cause the blood glucose to rise. All too often this leads us to eating a diet that is high in fat and protein.

The low carbohydrate diet looks great when you consider your post meal blood glucose spike, but it creates resistance to insulin.

If you are following a low carbohydrate diet I can hear you thinking “I can’t possibly be resistant to insulin because I only need small doses of insulin every day” and “carbohydrates are really bad, they cause my blood glucose level to go really high and stay high”. It turns out that to measure insulin resistance you need to do a glucose challenge and look at how long your blood glucose stays high, and if you use insulin how many units of insulin you need to bring blood glucose back into range following a glucose challenge is important too.

Sadly eating a diet that is consistently high in fat creates a long term form of insulin resistance and this affects people with all types of diabetes and the evidence that high fat diets create insulin resistance in all types of diabetes is growing.*


TRANSFORM YOUR DIABETES is about returning to eating a diet that is based upon unrefined carbohydrates and low in fat and proten. Members of the Transform Your Diabetes community who choose to eat a whole food plant based diet that is high in carbohdrates and low in fat usually see their insulin sensitivity increasing within just a few weeks of starting this program. this means that can eat more carbohydrates for less insulin.

We typically see energy levels increasing, blood glucose levels become easier to predict and manage, insulin activity becomes easier to predict and manage and qulity of life improves. At the same time we typically see HbA1c levels reducing, blood pressure reducing, lipid levels reducing and this reduces the risk of developing complications of diabetes.

 

Perhaps most importantly we see quality of life improving.
