DESCRIPTION: Type 2 diabetes can be reversed with severe calorie restriction—whether by surgery or starvation—but can also be reversed by simply eating healthier.
Type 2 diabetes can be reversed with an extremely low calorie diet (see my last video: Reversing Diabetes with Surgery http://nutritionfacts.org/video/reversing-diabetes-with-surgery). And as this video shows, type 2 diabetes can be reversed with an extremely healthy diet, but is that because it was also low in calories? That’s the million dollar (death?) question that I answer in my next video: Diabetes Reversal: Is it the Calories or the Food? (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/diabetes-reversal-is-it-the-calories-or-the-food). Hold onto your hats, it’s going to be quite a doozy!
I’ve touched before at the ability of healthy diets to both prevent (Plant-Based Diets and Diabetes http://nutritionfacts.org/video/Plant-Based-Diets-and-Diabetes) and treat (Plant-Based Diets for Diabetes http://nutritionfacts.org/video/plant-based-diets-for-diabetes) type 2 diabetes. It’s so exciting to be plugging in the final puzzle pieces.
What about the benefits of blood sugar medications and more moderate diets? When Drugs & Diets Don’t Lower Diabetes Deaths (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/when-drugs-and-diets-dont-lower-diabetes-deaths).
