Keto Diet Reverses Diabetes


I might just add one final comment which is really exciting that after seven years on the low carbohydrate diet my diabetes is in completely in remission and that’s amazing because I’ve not heard of anyone going seven years for their diabetes to be in remission after seven years on a high-fat diet my diabetes has been reversed ken the low-carb high-fat ketogenic diet reversed diabetes in addition to the Verta Health Study this video is going to take a look at Tim Noakes recent announcement that he has reversed his diabetes if you like this analysis of the crossroads between the food industry and the medical complex be sure to hit subscribe so you can stay up to date on the people and the facts that lead to changes in public opinion about diet to determine whether or not the keto diet can reverse diabetes let’s have a look at Tim Noakes and how he did it the key to this this approach is each of us vary in our insulin resistance and if you are profoundly insulin resistant like I am and maybe have a diagnosis of diabetes when you take carbohydrate you cannot metabolize it normally and people have to understand that if you like me 25 grams of carbohydrate is all you may eat a day that’s it you’ve got to get the grams of carbohydrate down below your threshold and for me it’s 25 and to go up to a hundred I will just put on weight and get progressively sicker now hundred let’s see what is 25 grams of carbohydrate it’s one Apple one Apple it’s key to distinguish the difference between reversal and remission when you’re thinking about how the ketogenic diet is going to affect your diabetes remission means only a temporary recovery by definition realistically if unresolved insulin resistance leaves you unable to eat an Appl along with other healthy whole plant foods over the course of a day do you think diabetes has been reversed alright I want y’all to watch this video until the end because we’re going to roll the full clip of Professor Noakes announcement and then cover the vertical study I might just add one final comment which is really exciting that after seven years on the low carbohydrate diet my diabetes is incompletely in remission and that’s amazing because I’ve not heard of anyone going seven years for their diabetes to be in remission so it’s really interesting because the Association for Dietetics in South Africa who were party to the charge against me originally promoted to their members that the reason why I’d got type two diabetes was because I started eating a high-fat diet for three months and then I suddenly got type 2 diabetes the fact that I’ve eaten a high carbohydrate diet in extremis for 33 years wasn’t considered so now they have a problem to explain why after seven years on a high-fat diet my diabetes has been reversed and of course they need also to address the question of the vertical study which was published just a few months ago showing also that 60% of people with type 2 diabetes who follow the Banting diet and the Banting diet was part of the prescription for this this population group 60% of the people have put their type 2 diabetes into remission and either completely stopped using insulin or reduced it dramatically so the tide has turned and in the four years that we’ve been in court I think the evidence has become so overwhelming that this is the diet that the majority people should be eating that the evidence is no longer controversial it’s now effect let’s look at the evidence he’s talking about and then you can decide if it’s controversial or if it’s solid enough to justify his assertion that the majority of people should be eating a diet severely restricted in carbohydrates and therefore limiting many healthy whole plant here’s what you need to know about the vertical study according to prominent cardiologist dr. Joel Khan the vertical program is centered around a single study published in an electronic journal which was launched just last year all of the authors of the study disclosed a financial relationship with Verta health and several of the authors also disclosed funding from Atkins nutritionals the National Dairy Council and the Malaysian palm oil board the duration of the initial paper was only 10 weeks and followed 262 people with type 2 diabetes there was no control group there was a 10 percent dropout rate these people were provided detailed coaching and guidance in order to maintain the extremely limited carbohydrate restriction of just 30 grams per day remember when Tim Noakes said about 1 Apple it’s doubtful that these subjects were able to eat even one Apple as they were consuming three to five servings of non starchy vegetables per day the subjects were able to lower their blood sugar and hemoglobin a1c such that many of them were able to reduce their need for diabetes medication and that’s the big draw of this study the promise that you can lower or eliminate diabetes medication on this extreme diet brings a lot of people to the table it’s important to realise that people lost weight during the study and follow-up period probably as a result of the decreased hunger commonly reported as the result of ketosis it’s important to realize that previous studies show improvements in the diabetic state likely as a result of weight loss on low-carb high-fat diets in this short study from 2005 we can see a dramatic improvement in the diabetic state on low-carb when calories were cut by about a third in some ways it looks like the results obtained in the vertical study are not really new information and it doesn’t constitute a paradigm shift except from the perspective of marketing I think that explains the hype you see the novel part about Verta health is the delivery of the Kido instructions through a combination of medical supervision and electronic guidance which is really the scaleable part of this business model okay back to the vertical study for a minute and we can see their clinic manages type 2 diabetes from the perspective that it is a disease of carbohydrate intolerance their strategy is to manage your diabetes with severe carbohydrate restriction and long term basically lifelong avoidance in my opinion this is about disease management not reversal so are you ready to stop eating healthy Whole Foods like most fruits many vegetables and all of the starchy staple foods that have been the foundation of the human diet since the dawn of the civilized world are you prepared to give up those foods long term meaning for the rest of your life if so then operations like Verta Health will gladly provide you instructions for eating an extremely carbohydrate restricted diet based around fat and you become a patient under chronic disease management for life always on guard not to eat that one Apple they claim the diet improves insulin resistance but the measure they are using isn’t based off of a carbohydrate challenge but rather fasting levels of blood glucose and insulin neat trick isn’t it the subjects are eating an extremely carbohydrate restricted diet and there’s no carbohydrate challenge on the measure they report for insulin resistance so based on the reported results we don’t know what would happen if you decided to eat more carbs than are found in an apple let’s see what is 25 grams of carbohydrate it’s one Apple one Apple the key to this this approach is each of us very in our insulin resistance and if you are profoundly insulin resistant like I am and maybe have a diagnosis of diabetes when you take carbohydrate you cannot metabolize it normally and people have to understand that if you like me 25 grams of carbohydrate is all you may eat a day that’s it you’ve got to get the grams of carbohydrate down below your threshold and for me it’s 25 and to go up to a hundred I will just put on weight and get progressively sicker up to seven years on a high-fat diet my diabetes has been reversed let’s see what is 25 grams of carbohydrate it’s one Apple one Apple up to seven years on a high-fat diet my diabetes has been reversed so if you were to eat a normal meal with pasta or potatoes or perhaps just that one Apple there you are because you subscribed to a treatment path that embraces so-called carbohydrate intolerance through avoidance this brings up some important questions like what causes insulin resistance and what happens on high-fat diets when you start eating carbohydrates but I think we’ll leave it here for today if you want to break out of the chronic disease paradigm make sure you hit subscribe so you can learn more about popular diets and their implications red pill vegan next [Music]
