    To continue your logic hala bala plant food can never be a sufficient
    source of omega 3’s or b12’s for that matter. Whoever is a strict
    vegetarian better take supplements to make up for the deficiencies that
    inevitably will come eventually from vegetarianism. Eat a little fish
    periodically and stay healthy or eggs- a superfood!

    The main problem in diabetes is the fat in the cells and not the blood
    sugar levels.

    One thing I know is that eating carbos makes my diabetes worse, even if
    they are good whole grains. I like Dr Eli Wallach’s theory that Diabetes is
    caused by a mineral deficiency. He swears by it!! Vitamin and mineral
    deficiencies have been the root cause of many many diseases. A study done
    on mice proved that they were totally deficient in chromium and
    supplementing only chromium cured their diabetes!

    Diabetes is caused by excessive carbohydrate intake. PERIOD. When your body
    has the failure to properly handle carbohydrates why on earth would you
    give it more. Especially starches like potatoes and rice. Look at Asia and
    India now leading the world in diabetes. Even Japans rate is rising very
    fast. All these countries are eating a ton of white rice. India has the
    highest type 2 diabetes rate and has had so for a while. A large portion of
    India is vegetarian due to their beliefs (they consume no red meat and very
    little chicken. Indians live on lots of beans, lots rice, lots of bread and
    lots of noodles, dairy products like butter and ghee. Basically a high
    carbohydrate diet. And before anyone says that its the dairy causing the
    diabetes you are ignorant. Look at countries like Sweden and France who eat
    tons of dairy and tons of fat and have little very little heart disease and
    lower diabetes rates. Even Swedens own government gets it and is telling
    the people to eat more fat and less carbs. 200 years ago in America the
    average person ate around 5 pounds of sugar per year. Now its up to almost
    160 pounds PER PERSON per years. Thats nearly half a pound a day. And
    people think its the meat and dairy. All while saturated fat has dropped by
    11%. Animal fat consumption has dropped (everybody is eating skinless
    chicken breasts and low/no fat dairy because the government has scared them
    into doing so) and grain & sugar consumption has skyrocketed. This guy
    thinks humans are “starchivores” (as he says). SMH at the ignorance.

    Same old story Nathan Pritikin was preaching back in the 70’s. Too much of
    anything in the diet is bad, including some of the carbs McDougall
    recommends. Actually McDougall’s diet made my diabetic condition a lot
    worse. This doctor claims food can cure almost anything. I am so sick of
    hearing about his past life on the sugar plantation. Everything is
    anecdotal with McDougall. I know many thin diabetics. Do not listen to this
    doctor. His diet made my A1C levels go up. McDougall should be ashamed. His
    diet can be downright dangerous for some patients.

    Where do we get these comments. These doctors are far few in between, but I
    guess people like to eat their high fat protein diet.

    I was off the charts w/ readings of over 500 – I followed McDougal’s
    recommendations and have normal blood sugar levels now -it took a few
    months but it worked. The weight did fall off – I do miss meat at times but
    my health dictates my choices.

    About 6 months ago I was diabetic until I stopped dairy and poultry. I
    doubt anyone could love meat more than I. Within a month I lost over 60lbs
    by eating strictly vegetables and starches. Just recently I went back to
    eating meat and dairy. Within 2 weeks my weight and blood sugar climbed
    rapidly. I don’t need any more proof that food choices make the difference
    between good health and poor health.

    initial thoughts. Have you tried – Sayerdsan Level Sugar Secret (should be
