The current treatment of patients with type 2 diabetes is a complete disaster. Plus the current ‘dietary dogma’ that includes a heavy grain-based diet – is driving more and more people to insulin resistance and diabetes.
Why are Diabetics NOT being told the truth? Perhaps because it’s so influenced by financial interests and old dietary dogma. Any successful treatment should include recommending real food without sugar and carbs to naturally lower blood sugar and insulin response.
Putting sugar-rich desserts and cakes on the cover of “Diabetic Living” magazines (top image) is shocking in our opinion. The image here was taken from a simple Google image search and the covers of many of the magazine issues feature carb-heavy meals and desserts. It should be as unthinkable as recommending smoking on the cover of a lung disease magazine.
Some Dietitians are Appalled!
Registered Dietitian, Diana Rogers, shared how appalled she was that her colleagues are not telling Diabetics the Truth in her blog post here.
She explains some key truths about Sugar and Carbs – worth a read, especially if you have diabetes and you’ve been told by your dietition to follow the standard ‘food pyramid’ or ‘My Plate’ recommendations.
“I’m appalled constantly at the misinformation we nutrition experts are telling folks with diabetes. It’s all over the place.
The ‘everything in moderation’ mantra, and how we need to eat less meat, less fat, and more whole grains, is a pervasive theme drilled into young dietitians, and spread to the public through our dietary guidelines. This information is making people sick.”Diana Rogers, RD
