Diabetic Diet Disaster

  1. 1. Diabetic Diet Disasters by James Ward www.CruiseControlDiet.com
  2. 2. There are more than 25million people in the US living with diabetes.
  3. 3. Thats a staggering number - greater than 8% of the total population - and its growing by the day.
  4. 4. With stats like that youdfigure we would be doing everything in our power to curb this problem.
  5. 5. More specifically, wed provide the public with as much education to properly treat, and even avoid, thislargely preventable disease.
  6. 6. But apparently thats not the case.What do I mean by that?
  7. 7. Well, I was in the supermarketthe other day and the magazine, Diabetic Living, caught my eye.Curiosity got the best of me so I decide to flip through it.
  8. 8. And what I encountered was pure horror (I kid you not).
  9. 9. Take a look at the following picture I snapped:
  10. 10. These foods, while delicious,are not healthful for anyone.But for a diabetic especially, theyre suicidal.
  11. 11. Im completely shocked thata publication catering to this group would make such horrible recommendations.
  12. 12. No wonder why this disease is running rampant.
  13. 13. Now, part of me thinks that theyre just giving peoplewhat they want (kind of like fat blocking soda).
  14. 14. After all, whos willing to give up their ice cream and chips?
  15. 15. So, perhaps theyre pickingout the better junk food of the bunch and displaying it.
  16. 16. But thats the thing… diabetics need "tough medicine".In fact, we all do lest we end up diabetic ourselves.
  17. 17. With that said, perhaps Imgiving the magazine too much credit. Maybe the publishers are indeed that ignorant.
  18. 18. Those are all carb heavyfoods. And what do carbs do ladies and gentlemen? They spike insulin.
  19. 19. Thats a problem for anyonetrying to get and stay fit, but for a diabetic, it just makesthem more insulin resistant.
  20. 20. But whats the big deal? Cant they just inject insulinand keep on eating this junk? Sure, thats an option.
  21. 21. However, its like adding fuel to a fire. Insulin, in large doses, is very harmful.
  22. 22. In fact, high levels of the hormone lead tocardiovascular disease and can even cause cancer.
  23. 23. It has many more negativeeffects but you get the picture.
  24. 24. Of course, if you have uncontrolled diabetes,its a must to clear the sugar from your bloodstream.
  25. 25. But the point is to get the problem under control.You should avoid the carbs in the first place so you dont need the injections.
  26. 26. Thats the only way to reversethe insulin resistance and get off the meds altogether - by eating a healthy diet, not some junk food.
  27. 27. So, again, to the publishers of the magazine: Shame on you!
  28. 28. Dont encourage sick peopleto dig their own graves - even if thats what they want.
  29. 29. Take the high road and give them tough love.
  30. 30. By doing so, perhaps theyll reverse their diabetes so they can actually enjoy some ofthose treats on a rare occasion.
  31. 31. Just saying…
