We have a serious problem with the way we look at and treat people with Type 2 diabetes around the world. This is of great concern to a nephrologist and nutritional health practitioner with a focus on diabetes named Dr. Jason Fung. He’s from Intensive Dietary Management in Scarborough, Ontario where patients are put through various protocols to help them control their disease naturally and without the knee-jerk need for medications. Dr. Fung has shared some very enlightening video lectures on YouTube (see below) where he makes the case that you can reverse diabetes through nutritional protocols to get to the root of the insulin resistance that causes it. He’s a big believer that it’s not about controlling blood sugar, but rather insulin levels.

How to Reverse Type 2 Diabetes Naturally


The Two Big Lies of Type 2 Diabetes

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Fung share why he decided to study nephrology, how he noticed Type 2 diabetes and kidney disease went hand in hand, why the positive low-carb research was shocking to him (because it showed just the opposite of what everyone thought), why you have to treat patients with kidney disease ten years before the disease manifests to reverse the diabetes, why saying that diabetes can be reversed or cured makes you look like a quack, the absurdity of going back to your old diet again after fixing the underlying insulin resistance, why all the focus of controlling Type 2 diabetes being placed on weight loss is wrong, we shouldn’t treat high blood sugars (the symptom) but rather the insulin resistance (the cause), why giving more insulin in diabetics is like giving alcoholics more alcohol, why treating Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes with the same treatment is misguided, the two big lies being told to people with Type 2 diabetes, the doctors who support the American Diabetes Association can’t face the cognitive dissonance that they’re wrong, why he can get half of his patients completely off insulin for good, why the low-carb message isn’t embraced more with so many patients doing well on it, and his upcoming video series on intermittent fasting.

938: Franziska Spritzler Promotes A Whole Food Low-Carb Approach To Health & Beauty

Although the low-carb message has been out there for more than a century, the interpretation of what that looks like on a meal plate and the purpose for eating this way is still one of hot debate today. Unfortunately, many modern-day low-carb dieters make the mistake of including suspicious food items (grains, sugars, fake sweeteners) that wouldn’t be recognized by people in the original low-carb diet days of William Banting while putting all the emphasis of restricting carbohydrates on losing weight. That’s why it’s great to have people like registered dietitian Franziska Spritzler from the “Low Carb Dietitian” blog articulating the use of a real, whole foods-based low-carb lifestyle for the purposes of improving health and beauty. It’s such a different take on the standard use of a low-carb diet that Franziska has put it all together in a brand new book about it entitled The Low Carb Dietitian’s Guide to Health and Beauty: How a Whole-Foods, Low-Carbohydrate Lifestyle Can Help You Look and Feel Better Than Ever.

Listen in as Jimmy and Franziska share about the whole lifestyle that improves health and looks (not just about weight loss), why a whole foods-based diet is critical to making a low-carb diet work well, how saying you can’t eat higher quality food is an invalid excuse, why the Atkins products and other “low-carb” products may not be great for you, who she was trying to reach with the “beauty” part of her book title, why she is proud to be 48 and still look so young, how the Paleo and real food movement have played a major role in shifting low-carb dieters, the concerns about ketosis from dietitians and health professionals, the persistence at promoting whole grains as healthy, how people rationalize eating grains over fat and protein, the illustration of the amount of sugar in the blood vs. the ADA’s idea of healthy amounts of carbohydrates for diabetics to consume, why even whole foods promoted by the Paleo community can be problematic for people with insulin resistance, how people can determine whether a low-carb diet is right for them, why including more salt and fat in your diet is necessary on a low-carb diet, how a low-carb diet can provide benefits even without being ketogenic, the various options that are available for people wanting to eat low-carb, helping people recognize where they are in their carb tolerance, why she still put the calories and nutritional data in her recipes (for those people who obsess over those things), why the sugar substitute issue is still debated, her recommendations to have some of these in small amounts (but not the sugar alcohols like maltitol found in many sugar-free chocolates), how reducing your taste for sweet down will help your health, why she falls down on the side of net carbs vs. total carbohydrates, the importance of getting an adequate fiber intake, how the rest of the world lists fiber separately from total carbohydrates on the nutrition labels, and the ton of recipes she provided in her book.

Every seven seconds somebody dies from the complications associated with diabetes. But a Wilmington, Delaware-based diabetes educator, chiropractor, and functional medicine practitioner named Dr. Brian Mowll says this need not be the case when there are some simple diet and lifestyle changes that can help reverse this trend. That’s why he is hosting a very special FREE online event beginning today, March 23, 2015 through Sunday, March 30, 2015 called The Diabetes World Summit featuring 41 amazing experts in the world of health, including your favorite Paleo and low-carb health superstars like Dr. Sarah Ballantyne, Dietitian Cassie, Mark Sisson, Dr. Josh Axe, Dr. Jason Fung, Dr. Tom O’Bryan, Dr. Amy Myers, Dr. Richard Feinman, Franziska Spritzler, Dr. Caryn Zinn, Dr. Richard Bernstein, Diane Sanfilippo, Dr. Sara Gottfried, Dr. David Perlmutter and many others–including our host, Jimmy Moore.

Register for FREE here or you can purchase the entire Diabetes World Summit right away.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Mowll share his interest in health and fitness, why he’s so passionate about sharing with the world the real answers to Type 2 diabetes, how people make a choice to change once they get diagnosed with diabetes, the way lifestyle can play a positive role in managing diabetes, how we’ve set ourselves up with the “perfect storm” for diabetes and metabolic disease, the many issues involved in the development of diabetes beyond nutrition, why the standard of care recommendations for treating diabetes are ridiculous, how the diabetes diet is so close (but so far) to being right, how diabetes medications are mostly used to suppress the blood sugar response of consuming a poor diet, why fat is not the issue in diabetes that conventional diabetes educators claim, the absurdity of the so-called “low-carb” diabetes diet studies, why he chooses to use the phrase “reversing diabetes” in his summit referring to Type 2 diabetes, how Type 1 diabetes cannot be cured but rather improved, bariatric surgery and restricted diets have both been shown to reverse Type 2 diabetes, how the improvements in Type 2 diabetes happen on a ketogenic diet, how losing visceral fat is a big part of dealing with diabetes, how just one night of sleep deprivation can make you insulin resistance, the stress component in blood sugar regulation, the many factors about why blood sugar can be raised despite very low-carb intake, how plants and organ meats are great sources of vitamins and phytonutrients, the most memorable things he learned interviewing all these experts during The Diabetes Summit, and why too much insulin (even in Type 1 diabetics) can be problematic.

Most people who are diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at an early age believe this is a death sentence with no hope for managing this much rarer, autoimmune form of the disease. But for Katie Coleman, that’s exactly what she faced at the tender of 11 years old when for the first time in her life she was forced to realize the true impact that food had on her body. In the years that followed, Katie went through a journey of searching for how to best deal with and control this disease she didn’t ask for doing all of the things she was told was healthy for a Type 1 diabetic to do. In fact, she was so committed to promoting “healthy whole grains” for diabetics that she founded a company called Grain Expectations in 2008 where her eyes were opened to the negative impact these had on her blood sugar and energy levels. Through this self-discovery and learning about the downside of consuming grains (especially for someone with diabetes), Katie switched over to a grain-free, ketogenic lifestyle and started a new business called The Keep It Real Food Company.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Katie talk about what it was like for her growing up with Type 1 diabetes, the treatment and dietary options presented to her at the time, her revelation of learning the glycemic index of foods on her body, her lifelong love of baking, why she initially embraced whole grains and low-sugar approach, the decision to start a grain-based food company, how she came to the realization that grains weren’t so healthy for her, the eyeopening turning point experience she had providing food for the American Diabetes Association Walk For The Cure, her shift to grain-free and creating a company providing grain-free options for diabetics and people eating healthy, her own personal shift to more of a low-carb, ketogenic lifestyle, the godsend her insulin pump and continuous glucose monitoring device have been, and her continuing education on how to best treat her Type 1 diabetes. Whether you have Type 1 diabetes or not, Katie’s story will resonate with you as you see the progression of knowledge and experience that bucks the trend of how this horrible disease is being handled by the so-called experts.

We have a serious problem with the way we look at and treat people with Type 2 diabetes around the world. This is of great concern to a nephrologist and nutritional health practitioner with a focus on diabetes named Dr. Jason Fung. He’s from Intensive Dietary Management in Scarborough, Ontario where patients are put through various protocols to help them control their disease naturally and without the knee-jerk need for medications. Dr. Fung has shared some very enlightening video lectures on YouTube (see below) where he makes the case that you can reverse diabetes through nutritional protocols to get to the root of the insulin resistance that causes it. He’s a big believer that it’s not about controlling blood sugar, but rather insulin levels.

How to Reverse Type 2 Diabetes Naturally


The Two Big Lies of Type 2 Diabetes

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Fung share why he decided to study nephrology, how he noticed Type 2 diabetes and kidney disease went hand in hand, why the positive low-carb research was shocking to him (because it showed just the opposite of what everyone thought), why you have to treat patients with kidney disease ten years before the disease manifests to reverse the diabetes, why saying that diabetes can be reversed or cured makes you look like a quack, the absurdity of going back to your old diet again after fixing the underlying insulin resistance, why all the focus of controlling Type 2 diabetes being placed on weight loss is wrong, we shouldn’t treat high blood sugars (the symptom) but rather the insulin resistance (the cause), why giving more insulin in diabetics is like giving alcoholics more alcohol, why treating Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes with the same treatment is misguided, the two big lies being told to people with Type 2 diabetes, the doctors who support the American Diabetes Association can’t face the cognitive dissonance that they’re wrong, why he can get half of his patients completely off insulin for good, why the low-carb message isn’t embraced more with so many patients doing well on it, and his upcoming video series on intermittent fasting.

938: Franziska Spritzler Promotes A Whole Food Low-Carb Approach To Health & Beauty

Although the low-carb message has been out there for more than a century, the interpretation of what that looks like on a meal plate and the purpose for eating this way is still one of hot debate today. Unfortunately, many modern-day low-carb dieters make the mistake of including suspicious food items (grains, sugars, fake sweeteners) that wouldn’t be recognized by people in the original low-carb diet days of William Banting while putting all the emphasis of restricting carbohydrates on losing weight. That’s why it’s great to have people like registered dietitian Franziska Spritzler from the “Low Carb Dietitian” blog articulating the use of a real, whole foods-based low-carb lifestyle for the purposes of improving health and beauty. It’s such a different take on the standard use of a low-carb diet that Franziska has put it all together in a brand new book about it entitled The Low Carb Dietitian’s Guide to Health and Beauty: How a Whole-Foods, Low-Carbohydrate Lifestyle Can Help You Look and Feel Better Than Ever.

Listen in as Jimmy and Franziska share about the whole lifestyle that improves health and looks (not just about weight loss), why a whole foods-based diet is critical to making a low-carb diet work well, how saying you can’t eat higher quality food is an invalid excuse, why the Atkins products and other “low-carb” products may not be great for you, who she was trying to reach with the “beauty” part of her book title, why she is proud to be 48 and still look so young, how the Paleo and real food movement have played a major role in shifting low-carb dieters, the concerns about ketosis from dietitians and health professionals, the persistence at promoting whole grains as healthy, how people rationalize eating grains over fat and protein, the illustration of the amount of sugar in the blood vs. the ADA’s idea of healthy amounts of carbohydrates for diabetics to consume, why even whole foods promoted by the Paleo community can be problematic for people with insulin resistance, how people can determine whether a low-carb diet is right for them, why including more salt and fat in your diet is necessary on a low-carb diet, how a low-carb diet can provide benefits even without being ketogenic, the various options that are available for people wanting to eat low-carb, helping people recognize where they are in their carb tolerance, why she still put the calories and nutritional data in her recipes (for those people who obsess over those things), why the sugar substitute issue is still debated, her recommendations to have some of these in small amounts (but not the sugar alcohols like maltitol found in many sugar-free chocolates), how reducing your taste for sweet down will help your health, why she falls down on the side of net carbs vs. total carbohydrates, the importance of getting an adequate fiber intake, how the rest of the world lists fiber separately from total carbohydrates on the nutrition labels, and the ton of recipes she provided in her book.

Every seven seconds somebody dies from the complications associated with diabetes. But a Wilmington, Delaware-based diabetes educator, chiropractor, and functional medicine practitioner named Dr. Brian Mowll says this need not be the case when there are some simple diet and lifestyle changes that can help reverse this trend. That’s why he is hosting a very special FREE online event beginning today, March 23, 2015 through Sunday, March 30, 2015 called The Diabetes World Summit featuring 41 amazing experts in the world of health, including your favorite Paleo and low-carb health superstars like Dr. Sarah Ballantyne, Dietitian Cassie, Mark Sisson, Dr. Josh Axe, Dr. Jason Fung, Dr. Tom O’Bryan, Dr. Amy Myers, Dr. Richard Feinman, Franziska Spritzler, Dr. Caryn Zinn, Dr. Richard Bernstein, Diane Sanfilippo, Dr. Sara Gottfried, Dr. David Perlmutter and many others–including our host, Jimmy Moore.

Register for FREE here or you can purchase the entire Diabetes World Summit right away.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Mowll share his interest in health and fitness, why he’s so passionate about sharing with the world the real answers to Type 2 diabetes, how people make a choice to change once they get diagnosed with diabetes, the way lifestyle can play a positive role in managing diabetes, how we’ve set ourselves up with the “perfect storm” for diabetes and metabolic disease, the many issues involved in the development of diabetes beyond nutrition, why the standard of care recommendations for treating diabetes are ridiculous, how the diabetes diet is so close (but so far) to being right, how diabetes medications are mostly used to suppress the blood sugar response of consuming a poor diet, why fat is not the issue in diabetes that conventional diabetes educators claim, the absurdity of the so-called “low-carb” diabetes diet studies, why he chooses to use the phrase “reversing diabetes” in his summit referring to Type 2 diabetes, how Type 1 diabetes cannot be cured but rather improved, bariatric surgery and restricted diets have both been shown to reverse Type 2 diabetes, how the improvements in Type 2 diabetes happen on a ketogenic diet, how losing visceral fat is a big part of dealing with diabetes, how just one night of sleep deprivation can make you insulin resistance, the stress component in blood sugar regulation, the many factors about why blood sugar can be raised despite very low-carb intake, how plants and organ meats are great sources of vitamins and phytonutrients, the most memorable things he learned interviewing all these experts during The Diabetes Summit, and why too much insulin (even in Type 1 diabetics) can be problematic.

Most people who are diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at an early age believe this is a death sentence with no hope for managing this much rarer, autoimmune form of the disease. But for Katie Coleman, that’s exactly what she faced at the tender of 11 years old when for the first time in her life she was forced to realize the true impact that food had on her body. In the years that followed, Katie went through a journey of searching for how to best deal with and control this disease she didn’t ask for doing all of the things she was told was healthy for a Type 1 diabetic to do. In fact, she was so committed to promoting “healthy whole grains” for diabetics that she founded a company called Grain Expectations in 2008 where her eyes were opened to the negative impact these had on her blood sugar and energy levels. Through this self-discovery and learning about the downside of consuming grains (especially for someone with diabetes), Katie switched over to a grain-free, ketogenic lifestyle and started a new business called The Keep It Real Food Company.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Katie talk about what it was like for her growing up with Type 1 diabetes, the treatment and dietary options presented to her at the time, her revelation of learning the glycemic index of foods on her body, her lifelong love of baking, why she initially embraced whole grains and low-sugar approach, the decision to start a grain-based food company, how she came to the realization that grains weren’t so healthy for her, the eyeopening turning point experience she had providing food for the American Diabetes Association Walk For The Cure, her shift to grain-free and creating a company providing grain-free options for diabetics and people eating healthy, her own personal shift to more of a low-carb, ketogenic lifestyle, the godsend her insulin pump and continuous glucose monitoring device have been, and her continuing education on how to best treat her Type 1 diabetes. Whether you have Type 1 diabetes or not, Katie’s story will resonate with you as you see the progression of knowledge and experience that bucks the trend of how this horrible disease is being handled by the so-called experts.

Our host Jimmy Moore is landing in Auckland, New Zealand today as part of his 10-city tour through New Zealand and Australia where he’ll be visiting Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Perth, Tasmania, and more in the next few weeks to share about his latest book Keto Clarity.

We have a serious problem with the way we look at and treat people with Type 2 diabetes around the world. This is of great concern to a nephrologist and nutritional health practitioner with a focus on diabetes named Dr. Jason Fung. He’s from Intensive Dietary Management in Scarborough, Ontario where patients are put through various protocols to help them control their disease naturally and without the knee-jerk need for medications. Dr. Fung has shared some very enlightening video lectures on YouTube (see below) where he makes the case that you can reverse diabetes through nutritional protocols to get to the root of the insulin resistance that causes it. He’s a big believer that it’s not about controlling blood sugar, but rather insulin levels.

How to Reverse Type 2 Diabetes Naturally


The Two Big Lies of Type 2 Diabetes

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Fung share why he decided to study nephrology, how he noticed Type 2 diabetes and kidney disease went hand in hand, why the positive low-carb research was shocking to him (because it showed just the opposite of what everyone thought), why you have to treat patients with kidney disease ten years before the disease manifests to reverse the diabetes, why saying that diabetes can be reversed or cured makes you look like a quack, the absurdity of going back to your old diet again after fixing the underlying insulin resistance, why all the focus of controlling Type 2 diabetes being placed on weight loss is wrong, we shouldn’t treat high blood sugars (the symptom) but rather the insulin resistance (the cause), why giving more insulin in diabetics is like giving alcoholics more alcohol, why treating Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes with the same treatment is misguided, the two big lies being told to people with Type 2 diabetes, the doctors who support the American Diabetes Association can’t face the cognitive dissonance that they’re wrong, why he can get half of his patients completely off insulin for good, why the low-carb message isn’t embraced more with so many patients doing well on it, and his upcoming video series on intermittent fasting.

Although the low-carb message has been out there for more than a century, the interpretation of what that looks like on a meal plate and the purpose for eating this way is still one of hot debate today. Unfortunately, many modern-day low-carb dieters make the mistake of including suspicious food items (grains, sugars, fake sweeteners) that wouldn’t be recognized by people in the original low-carb diet days of William Banting while putting all the emphasis of restricting carbohydrates on losing weight. That’s why it’s great to have people like registered dietitian Franziska Spritzler from the “Low Carb Dietitian” blog articulating the use of a real, whole foods-based low-carb lifestyle for the purposes of improving health and beauty. It’s such a different take on the standard use of a low-carb diet that Franziska has put it all together in a brand new book about it entitled The Low Carb Dietitian’s Guide to Health and Beauty: How a Whole-Foods, Low-Carbohydrate Lifestyle Can Help You Look and Feel Better Than Ever.

Listen in as Jimmy and Franziska share about the whole lifestyle that improves health and looks (not just about weight loss), why a whole foods-based diet is critical to making a low-carb diet work well, how saying you can’t eat higher quality food is an invalid excuse, why the Atkins products and other “low-carb” products may not be great for you, who she was trying to reach with the “beauty” part of her book title, why she is proud to be 48 and still look so young, how the Paleo and real food movement have played a major role in shifting low-carb dieters, the concerns about ketosis from dietitians and health professionals, the persistence at promoting whole grains as healthy, how people rationalize eating grains over fat and protein, the illustration of the amount of sugar in the blood vs. the ADA’s idea of healthy amounts of carbohydrates for diabetics to consume, why even whole foods promoted by the Paleo community can be problematic for people with insulin resistance, how people can determine whether a low-carb diet is right for them, why including more salt and fat in your diet is necessary on a low-carb diet, how a low-carb diet can provide benefits even without being ketogenic, the various options that are available for people wanting to eat low-carb, helping people recognize where they are in their carb tolerance, why she still put the calories and nutritional data in her recipes (for those people who obsess over those things), why the sugar substitute issue is still debated, her recommendations to have some of these in small amounts (but not the sugar alcohols like maltitol found in many sugar-free chocolates), how reducing your taste for sweet down will help your health, why she falls down on the side of net carbs vs. total carbohydrates, the importance of getting an adequate fiber intake, how the rest of the world lists fiber separately from total carbohydrates on the nutrition labels, and the ton of recipes she provided in her book.

Every seven seconds somebody dies from the complications associated with diabetes. But a Wilmington, Delaware-based diabetes educator, chiropractor, and functional medicine practitioner named Dr. Brian Mowll says this need not be the case when there are some simple diet and lifestyle changes that can help reverse this trend. That’s why he is hosting a very special FREE online event beginning today, March 23, 2015 through Sunday, March 30, 2015 called The Diabetes World Summit featuring 41 amazing experts in the world of health, including your favorite Paleo and low-carb health superstars like Dr. Sarah Ballantyne, Dietitian Cassie, Mark Sisson, Dr. Josh Axe, Dr. Jason Fung, Dr. Tom O’Bryan, Dr. Amy Myers, Dr. Richard Feinman, Franziska Spritzler, Dr. Caryn Zinn, Dr. Richard Bernstein, Diane Sanfilippo, Dr. Sara Gottfried, Dr. David Perlmutter and many others–including our host, Jimmy Moore.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Mowll share his interest in health and fitness, why he’s so passionate about sharing with the world the real answers to Type 2 diabetes, how people make a choice to change once they get diagnosed with diabetes, the way lifestyle can play a positive role in managing diabetes, how we’ve set ourselves up with the “perfect storm” for diabetes and metabolic disease, the many issues involved in the development of diabetes beyond nutrition, why the standard of care recommendations for treating diabetes are ridiculous, how the diabetes diet is so close (but so far) to being right, how diabetes medications are mostly used to suppress the blood sugar response of consuming a poor diet, why fat is not the issue in diabetes that conventional diabetes educators claim, the absurdity of the so-called “low-carb” diabetes diet studies, why he chooses to use the phrase “reversing diabetes” in his summit referring to Type 2 diabetes, how Type 1 diabetes cannot be cured but rather improved, bariatric surgery and restricted diets have both been shown to reverse Type 2 diabetes, how the improvements in Type 2 diabetes happen on a ketogenic diet, how losing visceral fat is a big part of dealing with diabetes, how just one night of sleep deprivation can make you insulin resistance, the stress component in blood sugar regulation, the many factors about why blood sugar can be raised despite very low-carb intake, how plants and organ meats are great sources of vitamins and phytonutrients, the most memorable things he learned interviewing all these experts during The Diabetes Summit, and why too much insulin (even in Type 1 diabetics) can be problematic.

Most people who are diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at an early age believe this is a death sentence with no hope for managing this much rarer, autoimmune form of the disease. But for Katie Coleman, that’s exactly what she faced at the tender of 11 years old when for the first time in her life she was forced to realize the true impact that food had on her body. In the years that followed, Katie went through a journey of searching for how to best deal with and control this disease she didn’t ask for doing all of the things she was told was healthy for a Type 1 diabetic to do. In fact, she was so committed to promoting “healthy whole grains” for diabetics that she founded a company called Grain Expectations in 2008 where her eyes were opened to the negative impact these had on her blood sugar and energy levels. Through this self-discovery and learning about the downside of consuming grains (especially for someone with diabetes), Katie switched over to a grain-free, ketogenic lifestyle and started a new business called The Keep It Real Food Company.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Katie talk about what it was like for her growing up with Type 1 diabetes, the treatment and dietary options presented to her at the time, her revelation of learning the glycemic index of foods on her body, her lifelong love of baking, why she initially embraced whole grains and low-sugar approach, the decision to start a grain-based food company, how she came to the realization that grains weren’t so healthy for her, the eyeopening turning point experience she had providing food for the American Diabetes Association Walk For The Cure, her shift to grain-free and creating a company providing grain-free options for diabetics and people eating healthy, her own personal shift to more of a low-carb, ketogenic lifestyle, the godsend her insulin pump and continuous glucose monitoring device have been, and her continuing education on how to best treat her Type 1 diabetes. Whether you have Type 1 diabetes or not, Katie’s story will resonate with you as you see the progression of knowledge and experience that bucks the trend of how this horrible disease is being handled by the so-called experts.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Katie talk about what it was like for her growing up with Type 1 diabetes, the treatment and dietary options presented to her at the time, her revelation of learning the glycemic index of foods on her body, her lifelong love of baking, why she initially embraced whole grains and low-sugar approach, the decision to start a grain-based food company, how she came to the realization that grains weren’t so healthy for her, the eyeopening turning point experience she had providing food for the American Diabetes Association Walk For The Cure, her shift to grain-free and creating a company providing grain-free options for diabetics and people eating healthy, her own personal shift to more of a low-carb, ketogenic lifestyle, the godsend her insulin pump and continuous glucose monitoring device have been, and her continuing education on how to best treat her Type 1 diabetes. Whether you have Type 1 diabetes or not, Katie’s story will resonate with you as you see the progression of knowledge and experience that bucks the trend of how this horrible disease is being handled by the so-called experts.

We have a serious problem with the way we look at and treat people with Type 2 diabetes around the world. This is of great concern to a nephrologist and nutritional health practitioner with a focus on diabetes named Dr. Jason Fung. He’s from Intensive Dietary Management in Scarborough, Ontario where patients are put through various protocols to help them control their disease naturally and without the knee-jerk need for medications. Dr. Fung has shared some very enlightening video lectures on YouTube (see below) where he makes the case that you can reverse diabetes through nutritional protocols to get to the root of the insulin resistance that causes it. He’s a big believer that it’s not about controlling blood sugar, but rather insulin levels.

How to Reverse Type 2 Diabetes Naturally


The Two Big Lies of Type 2 Diabetes

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Fung share why he decided to study nephrology, how he noticed Type 2 diabetes and kidney disease went hand in hand, why the positive low-carb research was shocking to him (because it showed just the opposite of what everyone thought), why you have to treat patients with kidney disease ten years before the disease manifests to reverse the diabetes, why saying that diabetes can be reversed or cured makes you look like a quack, the absurdity of going back to your old diet again after fixing the underlying insulin resistance, why all the focus of controlling Type 2 diabetes being placed on weight loss is wrong, we shouldn’t treat high blood sugars (the symptom) but rather the insulin resistance (the cause), why giving more insulin in diabetics is like giving alcoholics more alcohol, why treating Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes with the same treatment is misguided, the two big lies being told to people with Type 2 diabetes, the doctors who support the American Diabetes Association can’t face the cognitive dissonance that they’re wrong, why he can get half of his patients completely off insulin for good, why the low-carb message isn’t embraced more with so many patients doing well on it, and his upcoming video series on intermittent fasting.

Although the low-carb message has been out there for more than a century, the interpretation of what that looks like on a meal plate and the purpose for eating this way is still one of hot debate today. Unfortunately, many modern-day low-carb dieters make the mistake of including suspicious food items (grains, sugars, fake sweeteners) that wouldn’t be recognized by people in the original low-carb diet days of William Banting while putting all the emphasis of restricting carbohydrates on losing weight. That’s why it’s great to have people like registered dietitian Franziska Spritzler from the “Low Carb Dietitian” blog articulating the use of a real, whole foods-based low-carb lifestyle for the purposes of improving health and beauty. It’s such a different take on the standard use of a low-carb diet that Franziska has put it all together in a brand new book about it entitled The Low Carb Dietitian’s Guide to Health and Beauty: How a Whole-Foods, Low-Carbohydrate Lifestyle Can Help You Look and Feel Better Than Ever.

Listen in as Jimmy and Franziska share about the whole lifestyle that improves health and looks (not just about weight loss), why a whole foods-based diet is critical to making a low-carb diet work well, how saying you can’t eat higher quality food is an invalid excuse, why the Atkins products and other “low-carb” products may not be great for you, who she was trying to reach with the “beauty” part of her book title, why she is proud to be 48 and still look so young, how the Paleo and real food movement have played a major role in shifting low-carb dieters, the concerns about ketosis from dietitians and health professionals, the persistence at promoting whole grains as healthy, how people rationalize eating grains over fat and protein, the illustration of the amount of sugar in the blood vs. the ADA’s idea of healthy amounts of carbohydrates for diabetics to consume, why even whole foods promoted by the Paleo community can be problematic for people with insulin resistance, how people can determine whether a low-carb diet is right for them, why including more salt and fat in your diet is necessary on a low-carb diet, how a low-carb diet can provide benefits even without being ketogenic, the various options that are available for people wanting to eat low-carb, helping people recognize where they are in their carb tolerance, why she still put the calories and nutritional data in her recipes (for those people who obsess over those things), why the sugar substitute issue is still debated, her recommendations to have some of these in small amounts (but not the sugar alcohols like maltitol found in many sugar-free chocolates), how reducing your taste for sweet down will help your health, why she falls down on the side of net carbs vs. total carbohydrates, the importance of getting an adequate fiber intake, how the rest of the world lists fiber separately from total carbohydrates on the nutrition labels, and the ton of recipes she provided in her book.

Every seven seconds somebody dies from the complications associated with diabetes. But a Wilmington, Delaware-based diabetes educator, chiropractor, and functional medicine practitioner named Dr. Brian Mowll says this need not be the case when there are some simple diet and lifestyle changes that can help reverse this trend. That’s why he is hosting a very special FREE online event beginning today, March 23, 2015 through Sunday, March 30, 2015 called The Diabetes World Summit featuring 41 amazing experts in the world of health, including your favorite Paleo and low-carb health superstars like Dr. Sarah Ballantyne, Dietitian Cassie, Mark Sisson, Dr. Josh Axe, Dr. Jason Fung, Dr. Tom O’Bryan, Dr. Amy Myers, Dr. Richard Feinman, Franziska Spritzler, Dr. Caryn Zinn, Dr. Richard Bernstein, Diane Sanfilippo, Dr. Sara Gottfried, Dr. David Perlmutter and many others–including our host, Jimmy Moore.

Most people who are diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at an early age believe this is a death sentence with no hope for managing this much rarer, autoimmune form of the disease. But for Katie Coleman, that’s exactly what she faced at the tender of 11 years old when for the first time in her life she was forced to realize the true impact that food had on her body. In the years that followed, Katie went through a journey of searching for how to best deal with and control this disease she didn’t ask for doing all of the things she was told was healthy for a Type 1 diabetic to do. In fact, she was so committed to promoting “healthy whole grains” for diabetics that she founded a company called Grain Expectations in 2008 where her eyes were opened to the negative impact these had on her blood sugar and energy levels. Through this self-discovery and learning about the downside of consuming grains (especially for someone with diabetes), Katie switched over to a grain-free, ketogenic lifestyle and started a new business called The Keep It Real Food Company.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Katie talk about what it was like for her growing up with Type 1 diabetes, the treatment and dietary options presented to her at the time, her revelation of learning the glycemic index of foods on her body, her lifelong love of baking, why she initially embraced whole grains and low-sugar approach, the decision to start a grain-based food company, how she came to the realization that grains weren’t so healthy for her, the eyeopening turning point experience she had providing food for the American Diabetes Association Walk For The Cure, her shift to grain-free and creating a company providing grain-free options for diabetics and people eating healthy, her own personal shift to more of a low-carb, ketogenic lifestyle, the godsend her insulin pump and continuous glucose monitoring device have been, and her continuing education on how to best treat her Type 1 diabetes. Whether you have Type 1 diabetes or not, Katie’s story will resonate with you as you see the progression of knowledge and experience that bucks the trend of how this horrible disease is being handled by the so-called experts.

Most people who are diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at an early age believe this is a death sentence with no hope for managing this much rarer, autoimmune form of the disease. But for Katie Coleman, that’s exactly what she faced at the tender of 11 years old when for the first time in her life she was forced to realize the true impact that food had on her body. In the years that followed, Katie went through a journey of searching for how to best deal with and control this disease she didn’t ask for doing all of the things she was told was healthy for a Type 1 diabetic to do. In fact, she was so committed to promoting “healthy whole grains” for diabetics that she founded a company called Grain Expectations in 2008 where her eyes were opened to the negative impact these had on her blood sugar and energy levels. Through this self-discovery and learning about the downside of consuming grains (especially for someone with diabetes), Katie switched over to a grain-free, ketogenic lifestyle and started a new business called The Keep It Real Food Company.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Katie talk about what it was like for her growing up with Type 1 diabetes, the treatment and dietary options presented to her at the time, her revelation of learning the glycemic index of foods on her body, her lifelong love of baking, why she initially embraced whole grains and low-sugar approach, the decision to start a grain-based food company, how she came to the realization that grains weren’t so healthy for her, the eyeopening turning point experience she had providing food for the American Diabetes Association Walk For The Cure, her shift to grain-free and creating a company providing grain-free options for diabetics and people eating healthy, her own personal shift to more of a low-carb, ketogenic lifestyle, the godsend her insulin pump and continuous glucose monitoring device have been, and her continuing education on how to best treat her Type 1 diabetes. Whether you have Type 1 diabetes or not, Katie’s story will resonate with you as you see the progression of knowledge and experience that bucks the trend of how this horrible disease is being handled by the so-called experts.

We have a serious problem with the way we look at and treat people with Type 2 diabetes around the world. This is of great concern to a nephrologist and nutritional health practitioner with a focus on diabetes named Dr. Jason Fung. He’s from Intensive Dietary Management in Scarborough, Ontario where patients are put through various protocols to help them control their disease naturally and without the knee-jerk need for medications. Dr. Fung has shared some very enlightening video lectures on YouTube (see below) where he makes the case that you can reverse diabetes through nutritional protocols to get to the root of the insulin resistance that causes it. He’s a big believer that it’s not about controlling blood sugar, but rather insulin levels.

How to Reverse Type 2 Diabetes Naturally


The Two Big Lies of Type 2 Diabetes

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Fung share why he decided to study nephrology, how he noticed Type 2 diabetes and kidney disease went hand in hand, why the positive low-carb research was shocking to him (because it showed just the opposite of what everyone thought), why you have to treat patients with kidney disease ten years before the disease manifests to reverse the diabetes, why saying that diabetes can be reversed or cured makes you look like a quack, the absurdity of going back to your old diet again after fixing the underlying insulin resistance, why all the focus of controlling Type 2 diabetes being placed on weight loss is wrong, we shouldn’t treat high blood sugars (the symptom) but rather the insulin resistance (the cause), why giving more insulin in diabetics is like giving alcoholics more alcohol, why treating Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes with the same treatment is misguided, the two big lies being told to people with Type 2 diabetes, the doctors who support the American Diabetes Association can’t face the cognitive dissonance that they’re wrong, why he can get half of his patients completely off insulin for good, why the low-carb message isn’t embraced more with so many patients doing well on it, and his upcoming video series on intermittent fasting.

Although the low-carb message has been out there for more than a century, the interpretation of what that looks like on a meal plate and the purpose for eating this way is still one of hot debate today. Unfortunately, many modern-day low-carb dieters make the mistake of including suspicious food items (grains, sugars, fake sweeteners) that wouldn’t be recognized by people in the original low-carb diet days of William Banting while putting all the emphasis of restricting carbohydrates on losing weight. That’s why it’s great to have people like registered dietitian Franziska Spritzler from the “Low Carb Dietitian” blog articulating the use of a real, whole foods-based low-carb lifestyle for the purposes of improving health and beauty. It’s such a different take on the standard use of a low-carb diet that Franziska has put it all together in a brand new book about it entitled The Low Carb Dietitian’s Guide to Health and Beauty: How a Whole-Foods, Low-Carbohydrate Lifestyle Can Help You Look and Feel Better Than Ever.

Listen in as Jimmy and Franziska share about the whole lifestyle that improves health and looks (not just about weight loss), why a whole foods-based diet is critical to making a low-carb diet work well, how saying you can’t eat higher quality food is an invalid excuse, why the Atkins products and other “low-carb” products may not be great for you, who she was trying to reach with the “beauty” part of her book title, why she is proud to be 48 and still look so young, how the Paleo and real food movement have played a major role in shifting low-carb dieters, the concerns about ketosis from dietitians and health professionals, the persistence at promoting whole grains as healthy, how people rationalize eating grains over fat and protein, the illustration of the amount of sugar in the blood vs. the ADA’s idea of healthy amounts of carbohydrates for diabetics to consume, why even whole foods promoted by the Paleo community can be problematic for people with insulin resistance, how people can determine whether a low-carb diet is right for them, why including more salt and fat in your diet is necessary on a low-carb diet, how a low-carb diet can provide benefits even without being ketogenic, the various options that are available for people wanting to eat low-carb, helping people recognize where they are in their carb tolerance, why she still put the calories and nutritional data in her recipes (for those people who obsess over those things), why the sugar substitute issue is still debated, her recommendations to have some of these in small amounts (but not the sugar alcohols like maltitol found in many sugar-free chocolates), how reducing your taste for sweet down will help your health, why she falls down on the side of net carbs vs. total carbohydrates, the importance of getting an adequate fiber intake, how the rest of the world lists fiber separately from total carbohydrates on the nutrition labels, and the ton of recipes she provided in her book.

Every seven seconds somebody dies from the complications associated with diabetes. But a Wilmington, Delaware-based diabetes educator, chiropractor, and functional medicine practitioner named Dr. Brian Mowll says this need not be the case when there are some simple diet and lifestyle changes that can help reverse this trend. That’s why he is hosting a very special FREE online event beginning today, March 23, 2015 through Sunday, March 30, 2015 called The Diabetes World Summit featuring 41 amazing experts in the world of health, including your favorite Paleo and low-carb health superstars like Dr. Sarah Ballantyne, Dietitian Cassie, Mark Sisson, Dr. Josh Axe, Dr. Jason Fung, Dr. Tom O’Bryan, Dr. Amy Myers, Dr. Richard Feinman, Franziska Spritzler, Dr. Caryn Zinn, Dr. Richard Bernstein, Diane Sanfilippo, Dr. Sara Gottfried, Dr. David Perlmutter and many others–including our host, Jimmy Moore. This is such an exciting event that Jimmy decided to turn the tables on Dr. Mowll to interview him in a special simulcast interview that airs on “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show” and during The Diabetes Summit today. Register for FREE here or you can purchase the entire Diabetes World Summit right away.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Mowll share his interest in health and fitness, why he’s so passionate about sharing with the world the real answers to Type 2 diabetes, how people make a choice to change once they get diagnosed with diabetes, the way lifestyle can play a positive role in managing diabetes, how we’ve set ourselves up with the “perfect storm” for diabetes and metabolic disease, the many issues involved in the development of diabetes beyond nutrition, why the standard of care recommendations for treating diabetes are ridiculous, how the diabetes diet is so close (but so far) to being right, how diabetes medications are mostly used to suppress the blood sugar response of consuming a poor diet, why fat is not the issue in diabetes that conventional diabetes educators claim, the absurdity of the so-called “low-carb” diabetes diet studies, why he chooses to use the phrase “reversing diabetes” in his summit referring to Type 2 diabetes, how Type 1 diabetes cannot be cured but rather improved, bariatric surgery and restricted diets have both been shown to reverse Type 2 diabetes, how the improvements in Type 2 diabetes happen on a ketogenic diet, how losing visceral fat is a big part of dealing with diabetes, how just one night of sleep deprivation can make you insulin resistance, the stress component in blood sugar regulation, the many factors about why blood sugar can be raised despite very low-carb intake, how plants and organ meats are great sources of vitamins and phytonutrients, the most memorable things he learned interviewing all these experts during The Diabetes Summit, and why too much insulin (even in Type 1 diabetics) can be problematic.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Mowll share his interest in health and fitness, why he’s so passionate about sharing with the world the real answers to Type 2 diabetes, how people make a choice to change once they get diagnosed with diabetes, the way lifestyle can play a positive role in managing diabetes, how we’ve set ourselves up with the “perfect storm” for diabetes and metabolic disease, the many issues involved in the development of diabetes beyond nutrition, why the standard of care recommendations for treating diabetes are ridiculous, how the diabetes diet is so close (but so far) to being right, how diabetes medications are mostly used to suppress the blood sugar response of consuming a poor diet, why fat is not the issue in diabetes that conventional diabetes educators claim, the absurdity of the so-called “low-carb” diabetes diet studies, why he chooses to use the phrase “reversing diabetes” in his summit referring to Type 2 diabetes, how Type 1 diabetes cannot be cured but rather improved, bariatric surgery and restricted diets have both been shown to reverse Type 2 diabetes, how the improvements in Type 2 diabetes happen on a ketogenic diet, how losing visceral fat is a big part of dealing with diabetes, how just one night of sleep deprivation can make you insulin resistance, the stress component in blood sugar regulation, the many factors about why blood sugar can be raised despite very low-carb intake, how plants and organ meats are great sources of vitamins and phytonutrients, the most memorable things he learned interviewing all these experts during The Diabetes Summit, and why too much insulin (even in Type 1 diabetics) can be problematic.

928: Katie Coleman Keeps The Focus On Real Food For Her Type 1 Diabetes

Most people who are diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at an early age believe this is a death sentence with no hope for managing this much rarer, autoimmune form of the disease. But for Katie Coleman, that’s exactly what she faced at the tender of 11 years old when for the first time in her life she was forced to realize the true impact that food had on her body. In the years that followed, Katie went through a journey of searching for how to best deal with and control this disease she didn’t ask for doing all of the things she was told was healthy for a Type 1 diabetic to do. In fact, she was so committed to promoting “healthy whole grains” for diabetics that she founded a company called Grain Expectations in 2008 where her eyes were opened to the negative impact these had on her blood sugar and energy levels. Through this self-discovery and learning about the downside of consuming grains (especially for someone with diabetes), Katie switched over to a grain-free, ketogenic lifestyle and started a new business called The Keep It Real Food Company.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Katie talk about what it was like for her growing up with Type 1 diabetes, the treatment and dietary options presented to her at the time, her revelation of learning the glycemic index of foods on her body, her lifelong love of baking, why she initially embraced whole grains and low-sugar approach, the decision to start a grain-based food company, how she came to the realization that grains weren’t so healthy for her, the eyeopening turning point experience she had providing food for the American Diabetes Association Walk For The Cure, her shift to grain-free and creating a company providing grain-free options for diabetics and people eating healthy, her own personal shift to more of a low-carb, ketogenic lifestyle, the godsend her insulin pump and continuous glucose monitoring device have been, and her continuing education on how to best treat her Type 1 diabetes. Whether you have Type 1 diabetes or not, Katie’s story will resonate with you as you see the progression of knowledge and experience that bucks the trend of how this horrible disease is being handled by the so-called experts.

We have a serious problem with the way we look at and treat people with Type 2 diabetes around the world. This is of great concern to a nephrologist and nutritional health practitioner with a focus on diabetes named Dr. Jason Fung. He’s from Intensive Dietary Management in Scarborough, Ontario where patients are put through various protocols to help them control their disease naturally and without the knee-jerk need for medications. Dr. Fung has shared some very enlightening video lectures on YouTube (see below) where he makes the case that you can reverse diabetes through nutritional protocols to get to the root of the insulin resistance that causes it. He’s a big believer that it’s not about controlling blood sugar, but rather insulin levels.

How to Reverse Type 2 Diabetes Naturally


The Two Big Lies of Type 2 Diabetes

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Fung share why he decided to study nephrology, how he noticed Type 2 diabetes and kidney disease went hand in hand, why the positive low-carb research was shocking to him (because it showed just the opposite of what everyone thought), why you have to treat patients with kidney disease ten years before the disease manifests to reverse the diabetes, why saying that diabetes can be reversed or cured makes you look like a quack, the absurdity of going back to your old diet again after fixing the underlying insulin resistance, why all the focus of controlling Type 2 diabetes being placed on weight loss is wrong, we shouldn’t treat high blood sugars (the symptom) but rather the insulin resistance (the cause), why giving more insulin in diabetics is like giving alcoholics more alcohol, why treating Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes with the same treatment is misguided, the two big lies being told to people with Type 2 diabetes, the doctors who support the American Diabetes Association can’t face the cognitive dissonance that they’re wrong, why he can get half of his patients completely off insulin for good, why the low-carb message isn’t embraced more with so many patients doing well on it, and his upcoming video series on intermittent fasting.

Although the low-carb message has been out there for more than a century, the interpretation of what that looks like on a meal plate and the purpose for eating this way is still one of hot debate today. Unfortunately, many modern-day low-carb dieters make the mistake of including suspicious food items (grains, sugars, fake sweeteners) that wouldn’t be recognized by people in the original low-carb diet days of William Banting while putting all the emphasis of restricting carbohydrates on losing weight. That’s why it’s great to have people like registered dietitian Franziska Spritzler from the “Low Carb Dietitian” blog articulating the use of a real, whole foods-based low-carb lifestyle for the purposes of improving health and beauty. It’s such a different take on the standard use of a low-carb diet that Franziska has put it all together in a brand new book about it entitled The Low Carb Dietitian’s Guide to Health and Beauty: How a Whole-Foods, Low-Carbohydrate Lifestyle Can Help You Look and Feel Better Than Ever.

Listen in as Jimmy and Franziska share about the whole lifestyle that improves health and looks (not just about weight loss), why a whole foods-based diet is critical to making a low-carb diet work well, how saying you can’t eat higher quality food is an invalid excuse, why the Atkins products and other “low-carb” products may not be great for you, who she was trying to reach with the “beauty” part of her book title, why she is proud to be 48 and still look so young, how the Paleo and real food movement have played a major role in shifting low-carb dieters, the concerns about ketosis from dietitians and health professionals, the persistence at promoting whole grains as healthy, how people rationalize eating grains over fat and protein, the illustration of the amount of sugar in the blood vs. the ADA’s idea of healthy amounts of carbohydrates for diabetics to consume, why even whole foods promoted by the Paleo community can be problematic for people with insulin resistance, how people can determine whether a low-carb diet is right for them, why including more salt and fat in your diet is necessary on a low-carb diet, how a low-carb diet can provide benefits even without being ketogenic, the various options that are available for people wanting to eat low-carb, helping people recognize where they are in their carb tolerance, why she still put the calories and nutritional data in her recipes (for those people who obsess over those things), why the sugar substitute issue is still debated, her recommendations to have some of these in small amounts (but not the sugar alcohols like maltitol found in many sugar-free chocolates), how reducing your taste for sweet down will help your health, why she falls down on the side of net carbs vs. total carbohydrates, the importance of getting an adequate fiber intake, how the rest of the world lists fiber separately from total carbohydrates on the nutrition labels, and the ton of recipes she provided in her book.

Every seven seconds somebody dies from the complications associated with diabetes. But a Wilmington, Delaware-based diabetes educator, chiropractor, and functional medicine practitioner named Dr. Brian Mowll says this need not be the case when there are some simple diet and lifestyle changes that can help reverse this trend. That’s why he is hosting a very special FREE online event beginning today, March 23, 2015 through Sunday, March 30, 2015 called The Diabetes World Summit featuring 41 amazing experts in the world of health, including your favorite Paleo and low-carb health superstars like Dr. Sarah Ballantyne, Dietitian Cassie, Mark Sisson, Dr. Josh Axe, Dr. Jason Fung, Dr. Tom O’Bryan, Dr. Amy Myers, Dr. Richard Feinman, Franziska Spritzler, Dr. Caryn Zinn, Dr. Richard Bernstein, Diane Sanfilippo, Dr. Sara Gottfried, Dr. David Perlmutter and many others–including our host, Jimmy Moore. This is such an exciting event that Jimmy decided to turn the tables on Dr. Mowll to interview him in a special simulcast interview that airs on “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show” and during The Diabetes Summit today. Register for FREE here or you can purchase the entire Diabetes World Summit right away.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Mowll share his interest in health and fitness, why he’s so passionate about sharing with the world the real answers to Type 2 diabetes, how people make a choice to change once they get diagnosed with diabetes, the way lifestyle can play a positive role in managing diabetes, how we’ve set ourselves up with the “perfect storm” for diabetes and metabolic disease, the many issues involved in the development of diabetes beyond nutrition, why the standard of care recommendations for treating diabetes are ridiculous, how the diabetes diet is so close (but so far) to being right, how diabetes medications are mostly used to suppress the blood sugar response of consuming a poor diet, why fat is not the issue in diabetes that conventional diabetes educators claim, the absurdity of the so-called “low-carb” diabetes diet studies, why he chooses to use the phrase “reversing diabetes” in his summit referring to Type 2 diabetes, how Type 1 diabetes cannot be cured but rather improved, bariatric surgery and restricted diets have both been shown to reverse Type 2 diabetes, how the improvements in Type 2 diabetes happen on a ketogenic diet, how losing visceral fat is a big part of dealing with diabetes, how just one night of sleep deprivation can make you insulin resistance, the stress component in blood sugar regulation, the many factors about why blood sugar can be raised despite very low-carb intake, how plants and organ meats are great sources of vitamins and phytonutrients, the most memorable things he learned interviewing all these experts during The Diabetes Summit, and why too much insulin (even in Type 1 diabetics) can be problematic.

Most people who are diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at an early age believe this is a death sentence with no hope for managing this much rarer, autoimmune form of the disease. But for Katie Coleman, that’s exactly what she faced at the tender of 11 years old when for the first time in her life she was forced to realize the true impact that food had on her body. In the years that followed, Katie went through a journey of searching for how to best deal with and control this disease she didn’t ask for doing all of the things she was told was healthy for a Type 1 diabetic to do. In fact, she was so committed to promoting “healthy whole grains” for diabetics that she founded a company called Grain Expectations in 2008 where her eyes were opened to the negative impact these had on her blood sugar and energy levels. Through this self-discovery and learning about the downside of consuming grains (especially for someone with diabetes), Katie switched over to a grain-free, ketogenic lifestyle and started a new business called The Keep It Real Food Company.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Katie talk about what it was like for her growing up with Type 1 diabetes, the treatment and dietary options presented to her at the time, her revelation of learning the glycemic index of foods on her body, her lifelong love of baking, why she initially embraced whole grains and low-sugar approach, the decision to start a grain-based food company, how she came to the realization that grains weren’t so healthy for her, the eyeopening turning point experience she had providing food for the American Diabetes Association Walk For The Cure, her shift to grain-free and creating a company providing grain-free options for diabetics and people eating healthy, her own personal shift to more of a low-carb, ketogenic lifestyle, the godsend her insulin pump and continuous glucose monitoring device have been, and her continuing education on how to best treat her Type 1 diabetes. Whether you have Type 1 diabetes or not, Katie’s story will resonate with you as you see the progression of knowledge and experience that bucks the trend of how this horrible disease is being handled by the so-called experts.

We have a serious problem with the way we look at and treat people with Type 2 diabetes around the world. This is of great concern to a nephrologist and nutritional health practitioner with a focus on diabetes named Dr. Jason Fung. He’s from Intensive Dietary Management in Scarborough, Ontario where patients are put through various protocols to help them control their disease naturally and without the knee-jerk need for medications. Dr. Fung has shared some very enlightening video lectures on YouTube (see below) where he makes the case that you can reverse diabetes through nutritional protocols to get to the root of the insulin resistance that causes it. He’s a big believer that it’s not about controlling blood sugar, but rather insulin levels.

How to Reverse Type 2 Diabetes Naturally


The Two Big Lies of Type 2 Diabetes

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Fung share why he decided to study nephrology, how he noticed Type 2 diabetes and kidney disease went hand in hand, why the positive low-carb research was shocking to him (because it showed just the opposite of what everyone thought), why you have to treat patients with kidney disease ten years before the disease manifests to reverse the diabetes, why saying that diabetes can be reversed or cured makes you look like a quack, the absurdity of going back to your old diet again after fixing the underlying insulin resistance, why all the focus of controlling Type 2 diabetes being placed on weight loss is wrong, we shouldn’t treat high blood sugars (the symptom) but rather the insulin resistance (the cause), why giving more insulin in diabetics is like giving alcoholics more alcohol, why treating Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes with the same treatment is misguided, the two big lies being told to people with Type 2 diabetes, the doctors who support the American Diabetes Association can’t face the cognitive dissonance that they’re wrong, why he can get half of his patients completely off insulin for good, why the low-carb message isn’t embraced more with so many patients doing well on it, and his upcoming video series on intermittent fasting.

938: Franziska Spritzler Promotes A Whole Food Low-Carb Approach To Health & Beauty

Although the low-carb message has been out there for more than a century, the interpretation of what that looks like on a meal plate and the purpose for eating this way is still one of hot debate today. Unfortunately, many modern-day low-carb dieters make the mistake of including suspicious food items (grains, sugars, fake sweeteners) that wouldn’t be recognized by people in the original low-carb diet days of William Banting while putting all the emphasis of restricting carbohydrates on losing weight. That’s why it’s great to have people like registered dietitian Franziska Spritzler from the “Low Carb Dietitian” blog articulating the use of a real, whole foods-based low-carb lifestyle for the purposes of improving health and beauty. It’s such a different take on the standard use of a low-carb diet that Franziska has put it all together in a brand new book about it entitled The Low Carb Dietitian’s Guide to Health and Beauty: How a Whole-Foods, Low-Carbohydrate Lifestyle Can Help You Look and Feel Better Than Ever.

Listen in as Jimmy and Franziska share about the whole lifestyle that improves health and looks (not just about weight loss), why a whole foods-based diet is critical to making a low-carb diet work well, how saying you can’t eat higher quality food is an invalid excuse, why the Atkins products and other “low-carb” products may not be great for you, who she was trying to reach with the “beauty” part of her book title, why she is proud to be 48 and still look so young, how the Paleo and real food movement have played a major role in shifting low-carb dieters, the concerns about ketosis from dietitians and health professionals, the persistence at promoting whole grains as healthy, how people rationalize eating grains over fat and protein, the illustration of the amount of sugar in the blood vs. the ADA’s idea of healthy amounts of carbohydrates for diabetics to consume, why even whole foods promoted by the Paleo community can be problematic for people with insulin resistance, how people can determine whether a low-carb diet is right for them, why including more salt and fat in your diet is necessary on a low-carb diet, how a low-carb diet can provide benefits even without being ketogenic, the various options that are available for people wanting to eat low-carb, helping people recognize where they are in their carb tolerance, why she still put the calories and nutritional data in her recipes (for those people who obsess over those things), why the sugar substitute issue is still debated, her recommendations to have some of these in small amounts (but not the sugar alcohols like maltitol found in many sugar-free chocolates), how reducing your taste for sweet down will help your health, why she falls down on the side of net carbs vs. total carbohydrates, the importance of getting an adequate fiber intake, how the rest of the world lists fiber separately from total carbohydrates on the nutrition labels, and the ton of recipes she provided in her book.

Listen in as Jimmy and Franziska share about the whole lifestyle that improves health and looks (not just about weight loss), why a whole foods-based diet is critical to making a low-carb diet work well, how saying you can’t eat higher quality food is an invalid excuse, why the Atkins products and other “low-carb” products may not be great for you, who she was trying to reach with the “beauty” part of her book title, why she is proud to be 48 and still look so young, how the Paleo and real food movement have played a major role in shifting low-carb dieters, the concerns about ketosis from dietitians and health professionals, the persistence at promoting whole grains as healthy, how people rationalize eating grains over fat and protein, the illustration of the amount of sugar in the blood vs. the ADA’s idea of healthy amounts of carbohydrates for diabetics to consume, why even whole foods promoted by the Paleo community can be problematic for people with insulin resistance, how people can determine whether a low-carb diet is right for them, why including more salt and fat in your diet is necessary on a low-carb diet, how a low-carb diet can provide benefits even without being ketogenic, the various options that are available for people wanting to eat low-carb, helping people recognize where they are in their carb tolerance, why she still put the calories and nutritional data in her recipes (for those people who obsess over those things), why the sugar substitute issue is still debated, her recommendations to have some of these in small amounts (but not the sugar alcohols like maltitol found in many sugar-free chocolates), how reducing your taste for sweet down will help your health, why she falls down on the side of net carbs vs. total carbohydrates, the importance of getting an adequate fiber intake, how the rest of the world lists fiber separately from total carbohydrates on the nutrition labels, and the ton of recipes she provided in her book.

Every seven seconds somebody dies from the complications associated with diabetes. But a Wilmington, Delaware-based diabetes educator, chiropractor, and functional medicine practitioner named Dr. Brian Mowll says this need not be the case when there are some simple diet and lifestyle changes that can help reverse this trend. That’s why he is hosting a very special FREE online event beginning today, March 23, 2015 through Sunday, March 30, 2015 called The Diabetes World Summit featuring 41 amazing experts in the world of health, including your favorite Paleo and low-carb health superstars like Dr. Sarah Ballantyne, Dietitian Cassie, Mark Sisson, Dr. Josh Axe, Dr. Jason Fung, Dr. Tom O’Bryan, Dr. Amy Myers, Dr. Richard Feinman, Franziska Spritzler, Dr. Caryn Zinn, Dr. Richard Bernstein, Diane Sanfilippo, Dr. Sara Gottfried, Dr. David Perlmutter and many others–including our host, Jimmy Moore. This is such an exciting event that Jimmy decided to turn the tables on Dr. Mowll to interview him in a special simulcast interview that airs on “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show” and during The Diabetes Summit today. Register for FREE here or you can purchase the entire Diabetes World Summit right away.

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Mowll share his interest in health and fitness, why he’s so passionate about sharing with the world the real answers to Type 2 diabetes, how people make a choice to change once they get diagnosed with diabetes, the way lifestyle can play a positive role in managing diabetes, how we’ve set ourselves up with the “perfect storm” for diabetes and metabolic disease, the many issues involved in the development of diabetes beyond nutrition, why the standard of care recommendations for treating diabetes are ridiculous, how the diabetes diet is so close (but so far) to being right, how diabetes medications are mostly used to suppress the blood sugar response of consuming a poor diet, why fat is not the issue in diabetes that conventional diabetes educators claim, the absurdity of the so-called “low-carb” diabetes diet studies, why he chooses to use the phrase “reversing diabetes” in his summit referring to Type 2 diabetes, how Type 1 diabetes cannot be cured but rather improved, bariatric surgery and restricted diets have both been shown to reverse Type 2 diabetes, how the improvements in Type 2 diabetes happen on a ketogenic diet, how losing visceral fat is a big part of dealing with diabetes, how just one night of sleep deprivation can make you insulin resistance, the stress component in blood sugar regulation, the many factors about why blood sugar can be raised despite very low-carb intake, how plants and organ meats are great sources of vitamins and phytonutrients, the most memorable things he learned interviewing all these experts during The Diabetes Summit, and why too much insulin (even in Type 1 diabetics) can be problematic.

Most people who are diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at an early age believe this is a death sentence with no hope for managing this much rarer, autoimmune form of the disease. But for Katie Coleman, that’s exactly what she faced at the tender of 11 years old when for the first time in her life she was forced to realize the true impact that food had on her body. In the years that followed, Katie went through a journey of searching for how to best deal with and control this disease she didn’t ask for doing all of the things she was told was healthy for a Type 1 diabetic to do. In fact, she was so committed to promoting “healthy whole grains” for diabetics that she founded a company called Grain Expectations in 2008 where her eyes were opened to the negative impact these had on her blood sugar and energy levels. Through this self-discovery and learning about the downside of consuming grains (especially for someone with diabetes), Katie switched over to a grain-free, ketogenic lifestyle and started a new business called The Keep It Real Food Company.

Listen in to hear Jimmy and Katie talk about what it was like for her growing up with Type 1 diabetes, the treatment and dietary options presented to her at the time, her revelation of learning the glycemic index of foods on her body, her lifelong love of baking, why she initially embraced whole grains and low-sugar approach, the decision to start a grain-based food company, how she came to the realization that grains weren’t so healthy for her, the eyeopening turning point experience she had providing food for the American Diabetes Association Walk For The Cure, her shift to grain-free and creating a company providing grain-free options for diabetics and people eating healthy, her own personal shift to more of a low-carb, ketogenic lifestyle, the godsend her insulin pump and continuous glucose monitoring device have been, and her continuing education on how to best treat her Type 1 diabetes. Whether you have Type 1 diabetes or not, Katie’s story will resonate with you as you see the progression of knowledge and experience that bucks the trend of how this horrible disease is being handled by the so-called experts.

945: Dr. Jason Fung Exposes Two Big Lies And How To Reverse Type 2 Diabetes

d77aa1b86c42fec7ea395e0d923c964e_400x400

Ontario, Canada-based nephrologist, weight loss, and diabetes health expert Dr. Jason Fung is our guest today in Episode 945 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”

We have a serious problem with the way we look at and treat people with Type 2 diabetes around the world. This is of great concern to a nephrologist and nutritional health practitioner with a focus on diabetes named Dr. Jason Fung. He’s from Intensive Dietary Management in Scarborough, Ontario where patients are put through various protocols to help them control their disease naturally and without the knee-jerk need for medications. Dr. Fung has shared some very enlightening video lectures on YouTube (see below) where he makes the case that you can reverse diabetes through nutritional protocols to get to the root of the insulin resistance that causes it. He’s a big believer that it’s not about controlling blood sugar, but rather insulin levels.

WATCH DR. JASON FUNG’S YOUTUBE LECTURES

How to Reverse Type 2 Diabetes Naturally


The Two Big Lies of Type 2 Diabetes

Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Fung share why he decided to study nephrology, how he noticed Type 2 diabetes and kidney disease went hand in hand, why the positive low-carb research was shocking to him (because it showed just the opposite of what everyone thought), why you have to treat patients with kidney disease ten years before the disease manifests to reverse the diabetes, why saying that diabetes can be reversed or cured makes you look like a quack, the absurdity of going back to your old diet again after fixing the underlying insulin resistance, why all the focus of controlling Type 2 diabetes being placed on weight loss is wrong, we shouldn’t treat high blood sugars (the symptom) but rather the insulin resistance (the cause), why giving more insulin in diabetics is like giving alcoholics more alcohol, why treating Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes with the same treatment is misguided, the two big lies being told to people with Type 2 diabetes, the doctors who support the American Diabetes Association can’t face the cognitive dissonance that they’re wrong, why he can get half of his patients completely off insulin for good, why the low-carb message isn’t embraced more with so many patients doing well on it, and his upcoming video series on intermittent fasting. Don’t miss this compelling conversation!

938: Franziska Spritzler Promotes A Whole Food Low-Carb Approach To Health & Beauty

Although the low-carb message has been out there for more than a century, the interpretation of what that looks like on a meal plate and the purpose for eating this way is still one of hot debate today. Unfortunately, many modern-day low-carb dieters make the mistake of including suspicious food items (grains, sugars, fake sweeteners) that wouldn’t be recognized by people in the original low-carb diet days of William Banting while putting all the emphasis of restricting carbohydrates on losing weight. That’s why it’s great to have people like registered dietitian Franziska Spritzler from the “Low Carb Dietitian” blog articulating the use of a real, whole foods-based low-carb lifestyle for the purposes of improving health and beauty. It’s such a different take on the standard use of a low-carb diet that Franziska has put it all together in a brand new book about it entitled The Low Carb Dietitian’s Guide to Health and Beauty: How a Whole-Foods, Low-Carbohydrate Lifestyle Can Help You Look and Feel Better Than Ever.
