LCHF for obesity and diabetes

 LCHF for Obesity and Diabetes – Dr. Jay Wortman
Here’s one more of the best presentations from the LCHF Convention earlier this year.

Dr. Jay Wortman got type 2 diabetes himself, and reversed it with a strict low-carb diet. Then he started helping others – including a whole village of First Nations people in Canada, something that turned into a popular documentary.

Here he tells the whole story of his journey, and how to reverse obesity and diabetes. Plus everything you’ve ever wanted to know about oolichan grease.

How to Cure Type 2 Diabetes – Dr. Jay Wortman
My Big Fat Diet

    This was so helpful. Showing the science & the evidence helps me understand that I must make this change. My Dr. told me 0 carb, just eat meat, not too much fat. I look forward to referring her to the cited research.
    My only question: I have been at <50 g carb for 7 days. Love that I'm not hungry, like that I'm down ~5 pounds, but my sugars are still in the 250+ in the morning. I was hoping to be able to cut my insulin drastically. How long before I can expect it to lower? I have been out of control & on a large amount of 2 kinds of insulin for many years.....

    After a long time "out of control" and on high doses on insulin it's harder and take longer to reverse it. Keep it up and it will improve.

    For a stronger effect lower carbs towards <20 g per day. For the maximum effect try intermittent fasting, the longer the more effective.

    It seems to me that your diet is too high in protein. The two food types that increase blood sugar are carbs and protein. Fats do not increase blood sugars, so if you tune your diet to have more healthy fats and a little less protein, especially before bedtime, your morning glucose readings, like mine, should fall.

    This is all from personal experience and what works for me. There might be other valid answers also.
