So I’ve been a good boy for a month now and I’m starting to see some results that are making me happy. For starters, my BP is down from 158/90 to 136/85, and that was today in the GP’s surgery! I’ve lost about 6-7 kilos and I feel bloody marvellous thanks very much! So I’m thinking hard about kicking this condition into the middle of next century, and why the hell shouldn’t I?
But I have also read a lot of differing opinions about the best way to reverse type 2 diabetes and it is starting to give me a stinking headache. To save you the hassle of going over old ground, I’ve written down a few key points that I hope will help any other poor soul with this condition to understand how they can ‘get rid’.
What is it?
Apologies to those who already know what type 2 is, but here you go again:
- Caused by insulin resistance
- High blood sugar causes this disorder
- Insulin is produced but not effectively enough to use up excess sugar
These bad boys need to be removed from the equation if you are serious about diabetes type 2 removal, and lets’ face it, you should be!
- Refined Sugar – This will spike your blood sugar like no other product.
- Grains – Wheat is the worst culprit here, large carb carrying grains will be broken down into sugar within minutes.
- Cow’s Milk – Avoid this like the plague
- Alcohol – Sadly this has to be given the ‘heave ho’, at least until you are safe again.
- High Fiber Foods – Go for at least 30 grams of fiber every day from vegetables, berries and nuts. These slow down glucose absorption nicely.
- Wild caught fish – The Omega-3 fats reduce any inflammation and this counteracts elevated blood glucose effects.
- Foods with low glycemic loads – Avoid that sugar spike with these bad boys – Avocados, organic meat, nuts, seeds, vegetables and wild caught fish again.

The 30 day Plan
Follow this diet as closely as possible and ensure that you are getting at least 30 minutes of exercise every day. And if you don’t reverse this bastard, you’ll certainly get pretty close to tearing it a new…well you know the rest J
