The Perfect Treatment for Diabetes and Weight Loss

Do doctors treat type 2 diabetes completely wrong today – in a way that actually makes the disease worse? Many people would correctly say yes. There’s a better way.

What is the perfect treatment for type 2 diabetes – and for weight loss? Many people would say a strict LCHF diet – I would have said that myself, at one time. But that may just be a good start.

Many readers have told me about the Canadian nephrologist Dr. Jason Fung and his exciting work. But it was only recently that I got to meet him and record this interview.

Dr. Fung

Dr. Fung treats people with severe type 2 diabetes, and to them LCHF may not be effective enough – even if it’s a good starting point. Dr. Fung has found something significantly more effective. And as a side effect it’s also likely to be the world’s most effective method for weight loss, whether you have diabetes or not.

In this 12 minute interview – that you can see above – he goes through all the basics.

Observe: This treatment is extremely effective. If you have diabetes and take blood sugar lowering medication (especially insulin injections) you may need to reduce the doses a lot to avoid potentially dangerous hypoglycemia. You may instantly become too healthy for your medication.

More knowledge

There is a 32 minute second part to the interview, where Dr. Fung goes through many more practical tips and answers common questions. This second part is on the membership pages (free one month trial):

The Acid-Alkaline Myth

If you eat meat, will your blood become acidic, leading to osteoporosis and cancer? This is what some people still believe.

However, as humans have been eating meat since about forever, it would be pretty weird if our bodies couldn’t handle it without breaking down!

The big Paleo star Chris Kresser had a talk on the science behind the Acid-Alkaline theories at the recent Paleo f(x) conference. I did a brief video interview with him about it and you can see all of it above.

Great Interviews Coming Up

Wahls

We’ve been keeping busy during Paleo f(x) interviewing people. We’ve got short video interviews with Paleo people like Mark Sisson, Chris Kresser and all the usual suspects.

We’ve also got longer sit-down interviews with the fantastic Dr. Terry Wahls (pictured above) and NYT bestselling author Nina Teicholz (The Big Fat Surprise).

These two interviews are not just full of exciting ideas and stories, they also look really great. Carrying an extra bag full of video lights halfway across the world makes all the difference.
