    6x The Carbohydrates For 1/3 The Insulin...Meet Maia

    6x The Carbohydrates For 1/3 The Insulin...Meet Maia

     Maia was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in 2015.⁣

    She was told by her doctor what many type 1’s are told at the time of diagnosis, eat a low-carb diet. She followed their advice and returned to her life as an athlete.

    Later, she decided to go full keto which worked for a while and she was able to maintain an A1c of 7.1%. Eventually, she developed amenorrhea (loss of her period) and was unable to keep her blood glucose from spiking during exercise. ⁣
    ⁣⁣
    She searched online and discovered the work of Anthony William and his book, Liver Rescue. She followed it for 2 weeks and ate just raw fruits and veggies.

    Within those 2 weeks of being on a low-fat, plant-based, whole-food diet her blood glucose dropped, she gained tons of energy and decided she couldn’t go back. This leads her to the Mastering Diabetes book which she read in one night while she was attending college and she was blown away by the science.

    Date: August 2019 to January 2020
    Fasting BG (mg/dL): 180 to 120
    A1c (%): 7.1 to 6.3
    Weight (lbs.): 150 to 136
    Carbohydrate to Insulin Ratio: 7:1 to 20:1
    Total Cholesterol: - to 116
    Carbohydrates p/day (g): 50 to 300

    After switching to a low-fat, plant-based, whole-food diet, Maia now eats whole-carbohydrate foods without experiencing dramatic blood glucose spikes, she enjoys her food, her period returned and has more energy than ever.

How to prevent dementia and Alzheimer’s using food

Excellent ! Such easily understandable and practical information.

Helping Physicians

Thank you both for your contribution to clarifying the disease process of insulin resistance and how to treat it with lifestyle modification with such clarity. You have contributed to me counseling patients more clearly and have nudged me to start a diabetes reversal class with a local dietician. I have also gained diagnostic knowledge on diabetes type 1.5 and have made a diagnosis since reading your book. The podcast is great and I really enjoy the science based discussions. I also appreciate your open mindedness to keep evaluating the science and not having an emotional approach to your dietary camp. So refreshing. Thanks again.

Mostly great info, with exceptions

I mostly had a great impression of Mastering Diabetes. I have the books and follow them on social media. But that changed when they interviewed Tom O’Bryan, who has very little credibility and is not a proponent of a plant-based diet.
