Starvation can cure type 2 diabetes

A new study shows that starvation (eating 600 kcal/day) can cure type 2-diabetes, just like gastric bypass surgery.

Again, there is no need to explain the effect of the surgery with other speculative theories. The resulting starvation reverses diabetes. And the starvation isn’t even necessary to do that.

Guardian: Low-calorie diet offers hope of cure for type 2 diabetes

Unnecessary starvation

If a type 2 diabetic stops eating (carbs) the symptoms of diabetes starts to go away. But starvation or surgery are unnecessarily painful ways to do it.

Luckily diabetics can eat real food to satiety, as long as they avoid sugar and starch. The food that quickly turns into simple sugars in the gut. Cutting away their stomach or starving themselves is not necessary.

All they need is good food.

PS

A Gastric Bypass operation protects from eating too much carbohydrates in two ways. Number one: you can only eat miniature portions of anything. Number two: the smaller amounts of starch you eat is not digestedd as easily as the duodenum with the starch-digesting enzyme amylase is diverted from direct contact with the food.

    my fasting blood sugars are always around 6.5mmol/l(pre diabetic range).I eat a low carb low calorie meal once a day(OMAD DIET) and my sugars rarely spike past 7.5mmol/l.Hba1c levels are around 5.4%. I used to be a foodie and spent a fortune on gourmet restaurants...now I spend about 1/4 and the economic benefit is awesome.ALL HAIL HUNGER!!!

    Hello,

    Firstly, I agree food is the cause of diabetes two as it seems, as I understand, not a doctor, but diabetes is a dietary problem yes? Its reversible and can be put into remission or dare I use the word cure the forbidden so called word...many critics will not appreciate and fluff their feathers, but the world does not seem to grasp, that perhaps, after reading information it seems the crux of the problem the root cause of diabetes if I can quote that info is doctors have to focus target the CAUSE of diabetes and not the sugars which is only the symptom, and I can relate to this pragmatic and common sense viewing. Putting low carb and exercise aside, its seems common sense, cut down food amounts and intake with reasonableness.

    Secondly, I agree 100% the video two lies about diabetes, pity the medical industry dont view the same.

    Keep up the good work as long as it is done within reason and not affecting other issues.

    Gluconeogenesis is when the body creates glucose from proteins.

    Kristin, I feel that it's more accurate to say that gluconeogenesis is when the body creates glucose from NON CARB sources as it can make glucose from glycerol in triglycerides (fat) as well as lactate and pyruvate. I understand that these sources are prioritized and that making glucose from amino acids in muscle would come as a last resort.
