Can you Cure Diabetes? | Does Fat cause Type 2 Diabetes?

August 29, 2019

The American Diabetes Association describes
type 2 diabetes as a chronic condition that you have to live with, “One of the themes
that’s coming across is once you have diabetes it is such a hard disease to manage and to
have treated because these are long term chronic conditions.” Considering that as of September 2018, A record
high number of Americans—40% are living with diabetes or prediabetes, this would mean
100 million people are going to have to learn just learn to live with this disease that
harms every single organ in the body. However… British Politician Tom Watson recently made
a buzz by reversing his type 2 diabetes: “Well I really did it by just completely changing
my diet.” And here is Dr. David Unwin presenting data
on 66 diabetics who did a diet intervention for 2 years: “Now, of the 66 cases, 33, 50%
are in remission after 26 months.” So, it doesn’t sound like type 2 diabetes
has to be chronic. This video is about 6 Myths that hamper your
understanding of diabetes and how to prevent or possibly reverse it. This was Myth #1, that Diabetes is a Chronic
condition. Myth #2 – is the idea that Excess calories
are the key cause of weight gain and so we should monitor calories to get a handle on
diabetes. “The biggest impact is probably because restaurants
are reformulating their menus to offer lower calorie products and they’re reducing the
calories in newly introduced items that are constantly coming on menus by about 60 calories
or 12%. At a population level, if you can extract
that number of calories out of the diet, it can actually have a pretty big impact on levels
of both obesity risk and diabetes risk.” The American Diabetes Association says that
because being overweight is a risk factor for diabetes, calories, but not sugar are
what lead to diabetes. Calories in calories out, it’s a rule of
physics – of thermodynamics, so it is of course correct …but when it comes to understanding
weight loss, it’s practically irrelevant. Why? Well, Because while calories can be a rule
of thumb, they tell you pretty much nothing about hormones. So, let’s look at the hormone you’ve been
expecting me to talk about: Insulin. In Chapter 4 of Robert Lustig’s book “Fat
Chance,” he tells the story of Marie, a 16 year old who had to have a tumor in her
hypothalamus destroyed with radiation, and ever since that procedure she gained 30 pounds
per year, and weighed 99 kilos or 220 lbs when Dr. Lustig first saw her. “Her insulin levels spiked to incredible
heights every time she ate. She had a form of intractable weight gain
due to brain damage called hypothalamic obesity.” Dr. Lustig put her on a drug called octreotide
that lowers insulin release. According to her Mom, after the drug, she
stops being hungry on half the amount of food, she has more energy, and lost 21kg or 48lbs
in one year. Dr. Jason Fung points out here that as early
as 1921 and in the 1930’s insulin was used specifically as a “fattening agent” to
help chronically underweight children and pathologically underweight patients gain weight. “So, here’s a startling fact. I can make you fat. I can make anybody fat, how do I do that? I prescribe insulin.” A very clear display of insulin’s fattening
properties is “Lipohypertrophy” – a well known phenomenon where people who inject insulin
will develop a bulb of fat at the site of injection. “So, if I prescribe insulin or if I give drugs
that increase insulin, you will gain weight and every doctor and every patient who takes
insulin knows that already.” There’s a dangerous condition called diabulemia
where type 1 diabetics wanting to lose weight will deliberately skip injections risking
the serious consequences of unchecked high blood sugar. Going back to Marie, she was less hungry and
more energetic on the insulin lowering drug, so she did end up eating less and her resting
calorie burn went up, calories in calories out checks out, but this was all thanks to
less insulin. This leads to another very similar myth: “But
beating obesity will take action by all of us based on one simple common sense fact. All calories count, no matter where they come
from. Including coca cola and everything else with
calories.” Myth #3 A Calorie is a calorie
When you eat carbohydrate, especially low fiber carbs, your blood sugar or “blood
glucose” goes up, and your pancreas pumps out insulin because insulin’s job is to
get the glucose into the cell to be used for energy. On the other hand, eating protein elicits
only a moderate release of insulin and fats elicit almost no release of insulin, so how
can all calories be equally fattening? Keeping all this in mind by the way, what
are diabetics recommended to eat? “General recommendations are to tell patients
with type 2 diabetes to consume 40 to 65 grams of carbohydrates per meal plus more at snacks. That’s a lot of carbs.” Ironically type 2 diabetics are often told
that they need to lose weight to reduce their insulin resistance and manage their diabetes,
…but in order to keep their blood sugars in check while eating a high carbohydrate
diet, they are routinely prescribed to inject insulin, a fattening agent. Now, the problem with type 2 diabetes is that
the cells are insulin resistant to the action of insulin, they are insulin resistant. This means they need need more insulin to
get the same amount of carbohydrate processed. But what is the cause of this insulin resistance
? Insulin is a hormone, and hormones get their
job done by binding receptors on the surface of their target cell, much like a key fitting
into a lock. Insulin acts like the key, fitting into the
lock on the cell to open the door for glucose to get into the cell so it can be turned into
energy. Dr. Neal Barnard uses this analogy in a TEDx
talk of his to explain his theory of how insulin resistance develops : “What if I get home,
and, getting up to my front door, I take my key out of my pocket, I put it in the front
door. It’s not working. And there’s nothing wrong with my key. But I look in the lock – somebody put chewing
gum in my lock. Well, when a person has diabetes, their insulin
key is not working. Why would that be? It’s not that there’s chewing gum inside the
cell. What there is is fat. Intramyocellular lipid is fat inside your
muscle cells and That is what interferes with insulin’s ability to work like a key to signal
glucose coming in.” This idea that fat from the diet is clogging
up the insulin receptor leading to insulin resistance is what he’s talking about within
the first 10 minutes of Kip Andersen’s relatively popular documentary “What the Health.” “Ah you’re driving me crazy. Diabetes is not and never was caused by eating
a high carbohydrate diet and it’s not caused by eating sugar. Here’s the thing, if I eat a sugary cookie,
the sugar lures you in like the trojan horse but waiting inside that cookie is a huge load
of butter or shortening. And that’s the part that leads to the diabetes,
it’s the fatty foods, not really so much the sugar. The cause of diabetes is a diet that builds
up the amount of fat into the blood, I’m talking about a typical meat based animal based diet.” Now, Dr. Barnard did show in 2009 that a high
fiber low glycemic whole foods vegan diet had better outcomes for diabetics compared
to the conventional recommended diabetes diet. but I would assert that a lot of the benefit
comes from the protective effect of all that fiber in all those plant foods. Consuming carbs wrapped in a ton of fiber
in the form of vegetables protects you from getting blood sugar and insulin spikes – fiber
is like an antidote to the carbohydrate. Dr. Barnard’s diet is also very low in fat,
but that doesn’t mean fat is the bad guy. Just because there’s fat in the muscle of
diabetics doesn’t mean that dietary fat, rather than sugar, causes diabetes. Now, Dr. Barnard is correct in that there
is at least an association between accumulation of fat in skeletal muscle and insulin resistance. But this leaves us with two questions
The first is how did how did the fat get in the muscle in the first place? Is it coming straight from the fat you eat? Well, it’s a little complicated, but it depends. As you’d expect, There is a process where
dietary fat is stored in your body as fat and this process is called re esterification. And, as this study found, high dietary fat
intake can lead to an increase of fat in the muscle, intramyocellular lipid. However, consider that this re-esterification
process is an insulin facilitated process. So the fat you eat can go right to storage
in the body, and some of it may end up in the muscle, but insulin, which rises when
you eat carbohydrate, is what stores the fat. So to really test if dietary fat really is
the culprit of getting fat into the muscle, you’d want to have the people doing a diet
that is high fat but very low carb and therefore very low insulin. This would be like the ketogenic diet, which
has only 5% of energy coming from carbs. However, in the earlier mentioned study, “subjects
were put on a diet of (25% fat, 55% carbohydrate, 20% protein) for three days, and then for
three days they had the high fat diet. But it was 60% fat, 20% carbohydrate, and
20% protein. This is not nearly ketogenic and most wouldn’t
even define that as “low carb.” With 20% carbohydrate there’s still plenty
of insulin to shuttle dietary fat into the muscle. So what happens when you do restrict carbohydrate
sufficiently? This study, similar to the last one, compared
a low carb and high carb diet to see which would put more fat in the muscle. Except, the low carb diet of this study was
much lower carb with only 10% carbohydrate and then 60% fat and 30% protein. Their high carb diet was 60% carb, 20% fat,
20% protein. The results? This time, they found the “High-carb diet
increased fasting insulin and [fat in the muscle].” So it depends on the context. Precise intramyocellular lipid kinetics are
not entirely clear yet, but fat isn’t the bad guy it’s made out to be. It seems insulin is peer pressuring the fat
to get into places we don’t want it to be in like the muscle. So this was Myth #4, “the fat you eat is
the fat you wear” Just because you eat fat doesn’t you’ll store it. A more correct version of that statement would
be: “The fat you eat might be the fat you wear if there is enough insulin present to
make you store it.” One other thing to consider in the second
study is that the carbohydrate could be getting turned into fat and put in the muscle. The process of turning carbs into fat is called
de novo lipogenesis. And, it’s well known that refined carbohydrates
increase triglycerides and a high fat super low carbohydrate ketogenic diet results in
the best reduction in triglycerides compared to other diets. If you want to see fat in the muscle, by the
way, look at cattle. Grain fed cattle – cattle fed on a high carb
diet have a lot more fat marbling in their muscle than grass fed cattle on a high fat
diet. The grass fed cows have barely any fat in
the muscle. Wait but they’re on a grass diet, not a
high fat diet… right? Actually, up to 70% of the grass fed cattle’s
energy requirements come from short chain fatty acids, which are produced as a result
of microbial fermentation of the grass in the foregut of the cow. So they are technically on a high fat diet
yet develop hardly any fat in the muscle. There’s still one more question. Is fat in the muscle, however it happened
to get there, gumming up the insulin receptor lock and causing insulin resistance? Well, some papers say fat in the muscle might
be one source of insulin resistance, but others say it’s not a marker for insulin resistance. In any case, consider this: exercise is well
known to have a beneficial effect on insulin sensitivity. However, as this study found, “exercise training
increased IMCL by 21%” but at the same time, it improved insulin sensitivity. This phenomenon actually has a name, it’s
called “athlete’s paradox” “in which endurance-trained athletes, who have enhanced insulin sensitivity,
also have higher [fat content in the muscle]” So, fat in the muscle may be associated insulin
resistance, but it’s doubtful that it’s the key cause of insulin resistance by gumming
up the insulin receptor lock. In any case, because dietary fat doesn’t
reliably increase fat in the muscle cell regardless of the context, and simply because many people
have improved insulin resistance and reversed their diabetes on a low carb or ketogenic
diet, “at the ten week mark, nearly half of our patients reversed their diabetes, and
by one year, that number increased to 60%” we can safely mark the idea “Dietary fat
is the cause of insulin resistance, and therefore diabetes” as Myth #5 Ok if that’s the case, Then what does cause
insulin resistance? Well, insulin causes insulin resistance just
like smells cause smell resistance or alcohol causes alcohol resistance. When you first meet your girlfriend to hang
out you might be able to smell her perfume very easily, but after a couple minutes you
no longer notice it. If you start to drink a lot, you’ll find
you have to drink more alcohol to get the same effect. Similarly If you keep getting a lot of insulin
in the bloodstream, your cells will get resistant to it. Jason Fung explains this in his book “The
Diabetes Code.” He says “I can make anybody insulin resistant. All I need to do is give them enough insulin.” In Chapter 6, Dr. Fung presents three studies:
・In One maintained a forty-hour constant insulin infusion into a group of healthy young
people and this increased insulin resistance by 15%. ・In another, a ninety-six-hour constant
intravenous infusion of insulin into a group of healthy young people increased insulin
resistance by 20 to 40 percent. ・And in the third experiment, patients initially
not taking insulin were titrated up to a very high dose of 100 units of insulin per day. Dr. Fung says: “The higher the insulin dose,
the more insulin resistance they developed— a direct causal relationship, as inseparable
as a shadow is from a body. Even as blood glucose levels got better, the
diabetes was getting worse. Insulin causes insulin resistance.” So in a high carb diet, unless it’s offset
with a bunch of fiber, a vicious cycle is created where excessive carbohydrate consumption
raises insulin, insulin worsens insulin resistance and fattens you up. This insulin resistance means you’ll need
more insulin the next time you eat the same amount of carbohydrate, speeding up the whole
cycle. Then, if you get to a point where you need
to inject insulin, then you are really speeding up the cylce. This finally leads us to Myth #6 – that You
need a certain amount of carbohydrate to be healthy. Nope. Our bodies can make all the glucose we require
– this is called gluconeogenesis. “We have essential amino acids, those proteins,
essential fatty acids, but nope. No essential carb. Our minimum daily requirement for carbohydrates
is zero.” So when you think about all of this, it seems
like the simple solution to type 2 diabetes would be to restrict these insulin raising
carbs. So, you could go on a low carb or ketogenic
diet or you could really lower insulin by eating nothing. But of course all kinds of articles and guidelines
against doing this and there’s experts saying you should definitely not do a keto or low
carb diet, and that it’s very dangerous in the long run. So it’s pretty confusing. Stick around because next week I’ll be talking
about concerns like this along with more information on diabetes itself. This video was sponsored by Audible… which
is still something I use almost every single day. I’ve gotten a lot comments before asking about
my research process. And, a lot of it is just reading all the time,
and a lot of my reading is actually listening to non-fiction books on Audible. I really like their non-fiction selection,
but they have an unmatched selection of all kinds of audiobooks, original audio shows,
news, comedy, and more. I recently listened to Dr. Jason Fung’s
audiobook “The Diabetes Code,” the content itself was very intriguing but what made it
special is that it is narrated by Dr. Fung himself. It was engaging enough that I ended finishing
it in a span of just two days. Dr. Fung thoroughly covers the history, epidemiology,
cause and treatment of diabetes, putting complicated concepts in plain English with a bit of subtle
humor here and there. He also dispels many myths surrounding diabetes
and corrects several lines of incorrect education we have received regarding nutrition. If you’d like to check it out, go to

  1. My mother is a diabetic, and was forced to go to a class for Medicare. The woman running the class basically told them they could eat anything, but in 'moderation' . And that they could always inject more insulin if they wanted to have something with more carbs. My mom brought up low carb/keto diet (what I want her to eat, but doesn't) and keeping blood sugar low and the woman told her that wasn't healthy and not recommended for diabetics. They handed out pamphlets with meal suggestions for restaurants. I shit you not, their recommendation for Bob Evans was pancakes and syrup! This was a mandatory governmental class! Oh, another fun fact, the class was funded by the manufactureres of insulin!

  2. Myth 2 isnt a myth for type 2 diabetes…unless one has other underlying sickness (like hyper / hypothalamic obesity). This is dumb…

  3. I 15 and unfortunately have genetic type 2 diabetes but i eat well, my family mainly eats homegrown and homemade food and almost nos sugar so my dietitian had no idea what to tell me. She said how i dont eat anything that i shouldn't so all i can do to fix it is take pills and move more consistently. 😂😕 So in short, nothing but pills can help me. However my diabetes is paired with anxiety and depression so my blood sugar spikes alot quicker by simple things such as fruit :/

  4. If your only carbs come from above ground grown veg, you have the right protein intake to suppress appetite and you ensure your HDL is supported with quality fats you will not be diabetic.

  5. Please clarify that type 2, rather than type 1 diabetes, is reversible. Type 1 diabetes is a condition you are born with where your body cannot produce the insulin itself, rather than being resistant to insulin like in type 2.

  6. Also you should point out why fiber is protective when consumed with carbohydrates: it slows the RATE that sugar enters your blood, which describes the insulin spike term you use

  7. the moment when you realize some youtubers are more trustworthy and/or knowledgeable than doctors sometimes.

  8. its almost like most of our major health problems today are caused by the same places trying to cure them. HMMMMMMMMMMM

  9. ALL Type 2 diabetics are obese or very overweight…..ALL OF THEM. When they lose enough weight, then they are no longer diabetic — that's a FACT. Type 1 diabetes is usually a genetic condition where the pancreas shuts down around the age of puberty, sometimes as late as early-20's. Type 1 diabetes is a genetic condition not caused from being overweight.

  10. i beat it 3 years ago…went on an all green diet for 6 weeks to totally burn all the built up sugar in my cells….ate ginger, turmeric, apple cider vinegar, coconut oil for my fat….then reimplimented beef, eggs, cheeses, got off all of my meds…no more metformine,,,no more lucinapril,,,atorvastatin,,,levothyroxine…all gone….take lots of full spectrum vitamine c….make sure you dont eat protien and sugar together…thats a major no no

  11. i actually pissed my doctor off…no more using me as a pin cushion with the constant a 1 c and glugose sticks.

  12. I am a 57 year old type 2 diabetic …Both my mother and father were Diabetics and both passed from diabetes related complications… Ive tried many different diets to control my Diabetes..But the diet that works best for me is a Lower Carb, higher fat Diet….I eat Meat with Vegetables and high protein, high fat meals several times a day….Breads…Pasta…and Potatoes….Give me the largest Rise in glucose so these are the foods that i avoid…My recent blood work confirmed that my Glucose A1C's dropped from 10 down to 6.5 …My carated arteries have been sonogramed and are clear as is the Arteries in my legs….I include vegetables in every meal….and do a Brisk 3 mile walk 5 days a week….The biggest change in my understanding of diabetes came when i purchased a full time glucose monitor….i really got to see what foods were spiking my glucose levels….and how to keep them in control…Bread seems to be the worst offender… Its the most abundant….and forced on us
    everywhere we go to eat…My recommendation….would be to try to reduce the consumption of Bread….and Just keep moving..

  13. 12:44 That is incorrect. Endurance training,Strength training and,cardio training does not create fat in the muscle at all. That information is false. All have all tested with lean muscle mass. No fat found. who where eating vegetables. Those eating poultry had no signs of muscle fat. Those eating meat had no other traces after 1 day of working out. None had long term muscle fat.

  14. Telling a diabetic to eat 20g – 65g of carbs, is akin to telling an alcoholic to have a drink in the morning to cure the DTs!!!

  15. Here is a mess that your video is propagating. That we don't want that in our muscles. Since your body can store fat within your muscle oh, there must be a reason you needed to do so. The better answer would be how much intercellular lipids do we need to have. And that's a question that probably also varies between people of different blood types and different genetic makeup. Still be another report out to disprove everything that you're saying here soon enough.

  16. You should do more thorough research on that protein part…if you check pubmed the articles definitively show animal protein has a large effect in stimulating even shows that adding this protein to the same carbs increases insulin more. Please check sources…jesus christ

  17. I went on the keto diet and my borderline diabetes went away. And I also lowered my high blood pressure from 140/90 to 100/70… not to mention the 100 pounds I lost in thirteen months.

  18. if you just eat fat but eat too much of it..guess what, you will get fat, and you will have the same metabolic syndrome such as diabetes. you can get fat with a ketogenic diet.

  19. I came from 360 mg/dl down to 130 mg/dl averege with keto. So this was going very well for over 3 years but as soon as i ate ONE just ONE Cheesburger my Bloodsugar went to 480mg/dl. There was something i learned about. There is simply nothing that reverses Diabetes. I tried to eat 50 to 100 g carbs daily and after 2 weeks tataaaa.. fastig over 200 and after meals 300 to 350. Changed to Keto it got down very fast. I got to know a lot of pepole who claimed to have cured diabetes. After they tried my experiment it got clear to them that there was nothing reversed or cured just adjusted to the needs of a diabetic. Don't get fooled.

  20. Live cell therapy are the key of all disease , purtier placenta are proven already help million of asian, start find solution from purtier placenta from riway international . Reach me on wechat andynec168 tq

  21. How do you explain the non existent rate of diabetes in the older Asians that ate a diet of 90% white rice and no fat.

  22. I was at 194 lbs and diagnosed with type 2, now I am at 149 lbs and my A1C is almost normal. diet is king when it come to fighting diabetes. Oh, yeh, i'm 5'6"

  23. I am very interested in your material, but I had a very hard time following the diet comparisons in small highlighted text and verbal commentary. Would you please consider doing some kind of large, simple, color-coded bar graph for each type of diet, say 3 blue bars for a 20% fat diet (Protein, Carbs, Fat, 3 bars) and 3 red bars for a keto diet, etc. Then you could have one reference page with all the diet bar graphs next to each other, which you refer to at the start and finish of each diet comparison. Also if you could please do a slide of a large bullet list summary of your points about each type of diet, with the bar graph in the upper corner, I believe many people would get more out of your presentation. Thank you for considering these changes. It is very interesting material, and I would like to understand it better.

  24. People really need to wake up and stop funding the system that is killing them… It's that simple. Stop believing that your vote counts and realise that where you choose to spend your money is what drives real change.

  25. Years ago I saw a study where 10 out of 10 people who had type 2 diabetes they underwent gastric bypass surgery the type 2 diabetes went away whatever happened with that research?

  26. People who seek medical help to gain weight are the laughing stock of the universe. Seriously, learn to have fun overeating if you need to gain weight. Do like the movie stars do and eat pasta at midnight.

  27. Doctors are trying to kill American people. So that's why they lie to us. Government wants American people dead. Plain and simple.

  28. How do you explain older Asians who ate a diet of 90% white rice and yet had virtually no diabetes or hear disease and much lower levels of cancer?

  29. On the meat diet, meat and fat and eggs. 4 months and 2 weeks and my a1c. Was normal. Also my high cholesterol was normal for the first time in years. Don't know if this works for everyone but it works for me. Healthier than I have been in a decade. I do not eat any carbs at all, and no fruits of any kind.

  30. Hippocrates Health Institute is curing type 2 diabetes through diet and other treatments. They’ve been doing this for years. Great video!

  31. I was diagnosed while being an over-the-road driver. I've taken my weight from 250 pounds to 180 and had a heart attack and bypass surgery along the way. I've been on and off pills and insulin. Today my fasting blood glucose averages 85-102mg/dL. I had to find what was right for me since the doctor who diagnosed me only gave me a one page pamphlet for information, 4 prescriptions and told me to buy glucose meter. I've mainly been self taught in my care through trial & error and a lot of reading.

  32. Type 2 diabetes is 100% curable !!! Mineral and nutrient deficiency. That's it, that's all. Dr. Joel Wallach and "90 for life".
    Doctors cured type 2 diabetes in 1957. Dont believe the misinformation of your MDs or the society's for diabetes.

  33. My uncle stopped eating so much carbs and completely cut of sweets/sugar, he lost about 20kg and his HbA1c is now normal. yoU caNt hEaL diUbetAs!1!! 1 tAKe UoR iNsuLiN

  34. I started eating a clean, whole food Leto diet and in one year I went from an A1C rating of 13 to 5.6. I also lost 120 pounds. If you follow the diet the ADA tells you, you will never get well. They will kill you.

  35. I got gastric bypass and walked out of the hospital without type 2 diabetes. It has something to do with the bypass part that reduces blood level sugar. I was on five shots a day and now I just get an A1C every 6 months, no meds. So far my A1C been under 6.0, which is normal. Also a keto diet has been shown to reduce blood sugar and insulin levels. I'm on a keto diet and I eat about 3 cups of food a day and I'm never starving like I was before. Some days I have to force myself to eat one meal a day.

  36. There is an overlooked part of this it's Potassium . Diabetics have 2 battles at least I do I suffer from hypokalemia when my potassium level gets too low my blood sugar is much harder to manage .

  37. There is another formula to get rid of diabetes and that is only eat when you are hungry.If you are not hungry do not eat at all.

  38. I learned absolutely nothing from this video. A high fat diet might or might not cause diabetes. And then again, consuming high calories or a lot of carbs might or might not lead to getting diabetes. I think that the wisest thing for anyone to do, is to eat sensibly, and try to manage their weight. Yet if you're predisposed to getting diabetes, nothing you do can prevent it.The same goes for many diseases, including thyroid disease, which often accompanies type 2 diabetes.

  39. This documentary is funded by the sugar industry for sure! Placing all the fault onto carbohydrates lets them off the hook.

    Sugar is worse than everything you can imagine. Just watch "What the Health" documentary. This is just misinformation.

  40. Yep, only way I can curb my Type 2 diabetes is to restrict carbohydrate intake. How much fat I eat makes no difference…..

  41. I reversed my Type 2 diabetes through a healthy diet and losing 121 pounds. No dieting, no surgery just healthy eating and keeping my blood sugar under control.

  42. My father has had Type II diabetes for around 15 years . He follows a diet with fairly low carb, high fiber and low fat. He also takes medications to control it frequently. Is it possible to reverse it? Can he stop taking medications and change diet to reverse it? Thank you very much!

  43. 百分之40的美国人有糖尿病或糖尿病前期,你们美国人平时吃得啥呀?百分之40是个可怕的数字。

  44. what can you expect from a nation thats to lazy to cook real food, i noticed that everything in those shoping carts Americans buy is 99% fake food i call it plastic food ,so if you put garbage in you get garbage out,no wonder Americans are diabetic,since when has a mother teach her daughter how to cook? probably never cause her mother never taught her either mc donalds was the easy way out ,so i dont feel sorry for those fat fucks ,you reap what you sow

  45. It's so weird to see all these people, especially doctors, saying that diabetes aren't caused by sugar…
    Here in my country, it's commonly known that type 2 diabetes is related to sugar. It's even taught to children and teens at school to be careful in their sugar consumption.

  46. Could we please define "reversing diabetes" and "in remission"? I've had diabetes T2 for a long time and my ha1c average 5.3 for the past 15-20 years on a very low dose of meds. I could eliminate the meds entirely through a more rigorous diet and exercise program (but unfortunately I'm not an exercise or health food junkie).

    If I were to eat a couple of oreos I will immediately spike very dangerously high. So I eat a Neaderthal diet. I have among the lowest blood fat issues my doctors ever see. But Have I reversed my diabetes (from it's previous ha1c of over 12 to 5.3)? Or is my diabetes "in remission"?
    I don't think so. It's just under control.

  47. CICO is not a rule of thumb. It is reality, the basis. Yes, hormones, individual genetics, types and amount of nutrients, temperature of the area, how low and high you go in calories for how long, and so on; have an impact for sure. But CICO is the most important aspect in losing or gaining weight.

    The causes of diabeetes is fairly un-known. Some evidence has apparently pointed to common infections that does not even have to result in symptoms, but will within a span of years increase the risk of developing Diabeetes. But we have seen examples of obese people losing weight, and curing their type 2 Diabeetes. However, since the cause or causes of the various spectrum of diabeetes is unknown, we cannot say for certain what diet, medicine, etc have a chance to cure. Or even if it is possible to cure Diabeetes in the long term and without transplanting organs.

  48. my mother has been vegatarian for 60 years and she developed diabetes on her old age somehow, I worry I might develop diabetes when I grow old

  49. When it comes to nutrition I’ve found that the most straightforward and honest guy is a biologist who’s also a consultant for sportsmen in track and field, MMA, cycling and other sports. His name is Broderick Chavez.

  50. yes we don't need carbs thanks to the gluconeogenesis, BUT i know that you need more protein to sustain the amino acids request, if you don't want to eat your own muscles

  51. So when are the buff hoes gonna start injecting they tiddies w insulin instead of bolt-On fakes 🤔

  52. So if anybody wants to get fat.. we should advertise IV insulin. That way we could tell people what are the side effects as well. Therefore promoting Keto as well.

  53. Insulin resistance…. that is the thing that people have a hard time comprehending. You kind of gloss over the fact that carbs WITHOUT fiber are the ones that are the culprits, along with 'grazing' i.e. eating all the time.

  54. Please explain to me why we are supposed to count calories. Don't some of them end up in a dump eventually? Poo definitely has energy in it. I mean Bill Gates' machine burns poo to produce electricity.

  55. You can always tell which doctors are liars and shills by the way they talk during interviews. They always talk in a very snooty and condescending way.

  56. Well, the Hormones which use a receptor on the membrane of the cell is only for hormones who are made from proteins, but not for hormones which are made from fat.

    Those made from fat can go directly to the core of the cell to produce proteins from the DNA and RNA.

    The fat in the Muscle will increase due to the storage of "Energy" after having glycogen in the muscle.

    One needs to remember that fat in the muscle comes after having "too much" glycogen in the muscle.

  57. You're awesome. I consider this channel to be considerably valuable. Thank you from Tunisia. The body is very complicated and the researches are most of the time cont-reversing so it is hard to have a general precise idea when research don't include all of the specifications of the body. I have a general theory (from my background…don't judge !) that maybe working for diabetes and this is the formula : A low carb fresh naturally fed meat and natural fat and rich oils (like palm or olive oil) combined with a 2 day per week fasting ( the Muslim way of fasting no food, no water, sun up to sundown) with 1 hour of daily exercise.
    Fasting will eradicate the extra calories we eat every day and lower the blood pressure, release the body from spending energy on transforming food to nutrition, reverse the body system to feed on the reservoir of fat and like they say confuse the biological timing for the need of food (it is like resetting the clock)
    There is another thing that some diabetes people do and that is boiling fig leaf and olive leafs and they discovered that it lowers their sugar levels at different effects. I am sure that have an effect on lowering the blood pressure but if that helps on the long run or not I don't know. I think it is almost similar to the effect of tea it is worth digging anyway.
