Type II Diabetes

Type II Diabetes

Good News for People with Type 2 Diabetes!

“Medical research confirms that up to 50% of people with Type 2 diabetes can eliminate diabetes risks and discontinue medication within three weeks by adopting a low-fat, plant food diet and regular daily exercise.”

Science Agrees… Tests confirm low-fat diet alone reversed type 2 diabetes in laboratory animals.

In a scientific study released on September 9, 1998, “...While doctors have long known that weight loss can control diabetes, this is the first scientific study to show that type 2 diabetes can be completely reversed in animals by cutting dietary fat. Moreover, the findings suggest that reducing fat, not just weight, is a primary mechanism behind the reversal” (Richard Surwit, PhD et al, September ’98 Metabolism. Duke University).

A concurrent program at Weimar’s NEWSTART® Lifestyle Center, in which type 2 diabetes patients eat a low-fat diet and exercise daily, is experiencing a similar success in reversing diabetes. Many are completely off all insulin and medication with a normal blood sugar. Neuropathy has been reversed and renal function improved in many. Atherosclerosis, the big killer of people with diabetes, also responds favorably to the NEWSTART® program.

  • 50% of people with type 2 diabetes have normal blood sugar without medication in as little as three weeks.
  • 80% with diabetic neuropathy have no more pain in their feet and hands.
  • Other benefits of working this plan include:
  • 80% of men have normal blood pressure without medication.
  • a 25% drop in cholesterol is common.
  • a 35% increase in exercise capacity occurs.

Scientific research supports use of a low-fat, plant-based diet, plus exercise, in the prevention, treatment and reversal of type 2 diabetes.

The Atkins Diet, The Zone, Protein Power, Sugar Busters and the Stillman Diet all came under the attack of the Nutrition Committee of the American Heart Association (AHA) in a report in the October 9, 2001 issue of the journal Circulation (104:1869-74, 2001).

Diet, Lifestyle, and Risk of Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus in Women (NEJM 13Sept2001 Vol345#11) lead author F.B.Hu and others (this is the Harvard study otherwise called Diabetes Prevention Trial where they found lifestyle changes prevented DM2 by 58% within 3 years compared to “physiological medication” Metformin that prevented DM2 only 31%. Dr. Nathan, professor of medicine at Harvard is quoted as saying “Lifestyle was significantly better than Metformin, no question about it.”
