Jason Fung, M.D., Excerpts from “The Diabetes Code”

page xiv

FACT: TYPE 2 DIABETES IT FULLY REVERSIBLE AND PREVENTABLE

“MOST HEALTH PROFESSIONALS consider type 2 diabetes to be a chronic and progressive disease. This promotes the idea that type 2 diabetes is a one-way street, a life sentence with no possibility of parole: the disease continues to get worse until you eventually require insulin injections.”

“But this is actually a great big lie.”

“…: type 2 diabetes is a reversible disease.

“But only diet and lifestyle changes – not medications – will reverse this disease, simply because type 2 diabetes is largely a dietary disease. The most important determinant, of course, is weight loss. Most of the medications used to treat type 2 diabetes do not cause weight loss. Quite the contrary. Insulin, for example, is notorious for causing weight gain. Once patients start on insulin injections for type 2 diabetes, they often sense they are heading down the wrong path.”

“Since weight loss is the key to reversing type 2 diabetes, medications don’t help. We only precent they do, which is the reason most doctors think type 2 diabetes is chronic and progressive. We’ve avoided facing an inconvenient truth: drugs won’t cure a dietary disease. They are about as useful as bringing a snorkel to a bicycle race. The problem is not the disease; the problem is the way we treat the disease.

The same principles used for reversing type 2 diabetes also apply to preventing it. Obesity and type 2 diabetes are closely related, and generally, increased weight increases the risk of disease. The correlation is not perfect, but nevertheless, maintaining and ideal weight is a first step to prevention.”

By Now You May Have Heard That Sitting Is The New Smoking… Here’s Why

A lot of numbers, a simple message – MOVE!

Generation “S”

image-20

I heard this phrase for the first time on the radio today. “S” stands for sick.

It refers to those under about 40 who grew up primarily on processed foods including, but of course not limited to, “fast foods”.

This generation and those that follow it are noteworthy because, among other stats, they appear to be responsible for the turn-around in heart disease numbers. Those numbers used to be going down; now they are slowly going back up – because they are showing up in an increasing number of teens and pre-teens.

You’ve already heard that Type II Diabetes is no longer called “adult onset”. Cardiovascular diseases are now following suit.

The good news is that it doesn’t have to happen to you, if you are a Generation S. And it doesn’t have to happen to the young people you care about, if you aren’t.

Shop in the produce section and the health foods section of the store; avoid the rest. Order salads. They have Paleo choices now in many restaurants. They aren’t perfect but they solve the food combining issues and are healthy choices. Supplement with real whole food-based supplements that are proven to provide significant nutrition.

And get active. Authorities long ago stopped simply saying that you should exercise; they didn’t give up all together, they just thought if they lowered the bar more people would comply. For years they have been trying to get people to just get more active: now standing counts if you have followed the news on how bad sitting is for you. Their thinking is that anything is better than nothing.

The point is to do something physical every day (sweat and get out of breath). Find something that you like. Do it with other people so it’s social. And make it a habit. If you make it that far, then you can work on the details of which activities produce which results and why you would do one thing and not another.

Make health a choice for the New Year. You deserve it. And whatever you’re doing instead won’t be worth it in the end.
