What is a diabetic diet: Foods that heal disease

There’s a myriad of diseases, ailments and conditions that are caused by diet, which can also be cured through what foods we eat. Question: If you knew which foods were causing your health problem, wouldn’t you change what you ate?

I know I have done so to lose weight and feel healthier. I got sick and tired of all the pain and misery. The taste and pleasure of ‘bad food choices’ aren’t worth the long-term health consequences. Remember, just because something tastes great doesn’t mean it’s good for you!

Much disease is caused by inflammation. How I understand how this works is it can begin as leaky gut or intestinal permeability. This is where what substances shouldn’t enter the blood stream do so because the gut lining has been compromised. Here’s a few diseases that may be eliminated through eating plant based whole foods…

  • Asthma
  • Allergies
  • Alzheimer’s
  • Autism
  • Arthritis
  • Celiac
  • Chrohn’s disease
  • Eczema
  • Gall Bladder Disease
  • Gerd
  • Heart Attack
  • Kidney Failure
  • Psoriasis
  • Stroke
  • ‘Diabetes’

Bear in mind that diabetes is a very serious illness all too often leading to cardiovascular disease, damage to the nerves, going blind, having a stroke, and/or kidney failure.

If you have any doubts about your health in this regard, it could be a good idea to familiarize yourself with the symptoms of diabetes; like increased thirst, hunger, fatigue and more [1 niddk.nih.gov].

Yet, in the meantime, if one would simply change over to plant based whole food, he most likely (in time) would find his disease, ailment or condition disappearing altogether.

There are recommended preferred food groups to eat which have ‘healthy fats’ (nuts, seeds and avocados) for those who already have diabetes [2 niddk.nih.gov].

How I eat is already similar to what is recommended for diabetics to eat…

• Stay away from all animal products like beef, chicken and fish
• Avoid all dairy like yogurt, eggs, milk and cheese
• Take a B12 pill
• Don’t use cooking oil or eat anything high in fats like olives and avocados, nuts and seeds
• When you eat plant based whole foods, you don’t have to worry about getting enough fiber. It’s already in the food!
• No fried foods
• No sugary drinks
• Avoid salty foods
• No candy or baked goods like cookies and doughnuts
• Eat low glycemic foods like beans, legumes and peas, most fruits and vegetables and brown rice
• Avoid sugary foods, limit white potatoes, any bread and refined cereals like cold cereals
• Eat fruits, vegetables, legumes and vegetables for best health, weight loss and long life!

Studies prove adopting a low-fat vegetarian diet (whole food plant-based diet) that is also completely devoid of all animal products and any added vegetable oils (like corn, vegetable and olive oils) promotes superior health. For example, cholesterol will lower naturally, blood pressure will go down, and one will lose the weight he always dreamt about.

If you eat a whole food plant-based diet you never have to count calories, eat dinky portion sizes or go on a low carb diet that always lets you down and leaves you hungry.

To lose weight, you have to eat fewer calories. But, you need to replace the empty calorie ‘bad foods’ with the ‘good’ nutritious food. Luckily, you have just found a future diet whereby you can eat as much as you want, get healthier and lose weight at the same time.
