180 Degree Diabetes: Preventing and Reversing Insulin Resistance, Metabolic Syndrome and Type 2 Diabetes

Mainstream medicine considers type 2 diabetes to be an irreversible, incurable disease. This is one of the greatest fallacies and abominations in the world today. It is painlessly simple to prevent, complete reversal is a totally tangible goal, and in the rare cases in which reversal is not possible, there are easy and practical ways to live a long, healthy, and prosperous life as a type 2 diabetic without complications.

Even the disease itself is so misunderstood by mainstream health authorities and dieticians alike that it is almost hard not to laugh at the beliefs they have about its causation. They assert that eating a high-fat, high-calorie diet and not getting enough exercise is the CAUSE of type 2 diabetes. Their only challengers assert that eating carbohydrates causes type 2 diabetes! I swear, I’m not making this up. People with advanced medical degrees and the word Harvard in their resume really believe this stuff!

Get ready for a good chuckle at their expense, as I reveal how I dropped my fasting blood sugar by 26% in less than a month by eating a diet that’s high in saturated fat, high-glycemic carbohydrates, and calories while sitting in front of a computer writing this eBook in lieu of exercise.

Make no mistake, 180 Degree Diabetes is your life raft in a sea of stupidity and misconception surrounding the phenomenon of insulin resistance – a metabolic disturbance that can lead to obesity, metabolic syndrome, type 2 diabetes, and poor overall health over time. This eBook contains information that is so far advanced in its understanding of poor blood glucose regulation that it makes modern health movements from the low-fat, low-calorie standard to low-carb mania look pathetically oversimplified, ignorant, and mind-bogglingly impotent.

180 Degree Diabetes opens up a whole new door of ideas and understanding on the subject, provides priceless information on how to stop the degenerative march to diabetes from a prevention standpoint, and even serves up an assortment of effective type 2 diabetes reversal protocols that can be used by some to totally eradicate the disease.

No more bowing to the Medical, Diet, and Pharmaceutical Masters of the Universe. It’s time, not to stick yourself with insulin injections, but to stick it to the man – understanding and overcoming insulin resistance and high blood sugars once and for all using an approach that no other medical or nutrition mind has ever even thought to try.

Every other book that has been published on the topic of type 2 diabetes is a complete joke in comparison to 180 Degree Diabetes. Add it to your library and see what all this fuss is about.

Low Glycemic Index- Glycemic Load Diet and Diabetes Management: How to manage Insulin resistance, poorly-controlled,and gestation diabetes mellitus; and lipids of diabetes subjects

Type 2 diabetes has been a 61% increase in incidence between 1990 and 2001 in the USA. There are 1.5 million new cases per year. Poorly-controlled diabetes that is characterized with increased glycated hemoglobin, HbA1c>8%, is increasing world wide, and gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) affects a substantial number of pregnancies, which complicates 7% of all pregnancies. Substantial evidence from studies support the dietary fiber and types of carbohydrate (glycemic index and load) impact on postprandial glucose and insulin responses. High carbohydrate intake recommended in diabetes, resulting in suboptimal glycemic control and lipoprotein profile, gradually increasing insulin and/or oral hypoglycemic medication requirement and eventually weight gain. Therefore, we investigated the role of low glycemic index-glycemic load diet with and without extra fiber (wheat bran) on blood glucose profile of insulin resistance, diabetes and GDM subjects. The diets included lower amount of carbohydrate and higher fat content than traditionally introduced diets as an alternative approach to reduce glycemic response to carbohydrate and also reducing HbA1c concentration of poor-controlled diabetes

Syndrome X: The Complete Nutritional Program to Prevent and Reverse Insulin Resistance

You can feel great again!

“Syndrome X proactively lays out a nutritious, tasty, and simple diet plan to get us back to the basics of healthy nutrition.”-Lendon H. Smith, M.D., New York Times bestselling author of Feed Your Body Right

“Syndrome X is the best new book to help you understand the facts about nutrition, health, and aging. . . . It is full of new information and insights most readers have never had access to before. Everyone who values his or her health will want to read the book and then individualize the program to suit his or her needs-the authors have made this easier than ever to do.”-Richard A. Kunin, M.D., author of Mega-Nutrition

What is Syndrome X? It’s a resistance to insulin-the hormone needed to burn food for energy-combined with high cholesterol or triglycerides, high blood pressure, or too much body fat. Syndrome X ages you prematurely and significantly increases your risk of heart disease, hypertension, obesity, eye disease, nervous system disorders, diabetes, Alzheimer’s, cancer, and other age-related diseases.

Syndrome X is the first book to tell you how to fight the epidemic disorder that is derailing the health of nearly a third of North Americans. It outlines a complete three-step program-including easy-to-follow diets, light physical activity, and readily available vitamins and nutritional supplements-that will safeguard you against developing Syndrome X or reverse it if you already have it.If you’re aging prematurely, getting fatter, feeling sluggish, and watching your blood pressure and cholesterol sneak upwards, you may have “Syndrome X,” claim the authors, who say that up to 60 million North Americans have it. “Syndrome X is primarily a nutritional disease caused by eating the wrong foods,” they write. The mysterious-sounding “Syndrome X” refers to a group of health problems including insulin resistance (“the inability to properly deal with dietary carbohydrates such as sugars”), plus at least one additional problem, such as abnormal blood fats (elevated cholesterol or triglycerides), overweight, and/or high blood pressure. Insulin resistance is “a diet-caused hormonal logjam that interferes with your body’s ability to efficiently burn the food you eat.” According to the authors, you probably have this problem, and if you do, eating processed carbohydrates are the root of it. Pastries, pastas, breakfast cereals, soft drinks–these refined carbos are the enemy. The book warns you that you probably suffer from insulin resistance (please get a blood test instead of relying on the admittedly unscientific questionnaire in the book, which makes everyone suspect who eats cereal or drinks fruit juice). Then the authors jump on the high-protein, low carb bandwagon. You can eat three eggs for breakfast, roast duck for lunch, and salmon for dinner, and snack on chicken slices.

It seems odd that if the problem is refined carbs that the solution is high protein and low carbs. The authors admit that most unrefined, or complex, carbohydrates do not have the excessive glucose- and insulin-stimulating effect of refined carbs, so why not recommend high-quality, unrefined carbohydrates (which are preferred over high-protein diets by the American Dietetic Association)? Consumers can’t tell the difference, the authors say. So rather than educate them to the difference, let them eat meat. Go figure.

Reverse Type 2 Diabetes: Lower Blood Sugar (glucose), and Eliminate Insulin Resistance

Why should you buy this book? Well, for less than the cost of lunch in a restaurant, what you will learn in this book just might add ten to twenty or so years to your life and possibly save you from a horribly painful, ugly death. How about that? I would say that would make it an incredible value, worth the money… Diabetes is a Worldwide pandemic. In the USA alone, one in five people are at risk of developing type two diabetes and many of those will develop the type one, insulin dependent variety in their lifetime. The purpose of this book is to help you, your sons or daughters, grandchildren, other family members, a friend or loved one or someone you know with pre-diabetes or type two diabetes find a ways to reduce blood glucose levels without having to make too many lifestyle changes or wade through the virtual tons of books and articles available on the topic. Some of which are overly technical and some written by individuals that have theories about cures, but have no personal experience with the disease. I have read a lot of books on the subject and at least as many or more research publications on the topic of reversing type 2 diabetes. I have spent a lot of time and money to do this. What makes this unique is that I have condensed the essential information into one book for you. So let me save you the time and effort and money too. Also, I have added some personal discoveries that might help you too. I will say that by using the information provided in this book will give you a jumpstart on lowering your blood sugar. Starting immediately… It is a “HOW TO” book. It is not overly complicated and it is very reader friendly. It cuts directly to what you can do for yourself, right now. It is easy to read and it does not bog you down with a lot of unnecessary and overly technical information. I wrote it this way in order to get the message out. Some surprisingly good news for you is that it may be possible for you to reverse your type two diabetes and it can be done. What food or drinks can you give up right now that will improve your blood glucose levels? What ones can you add? What else can you do? The answers are included in this book… Ultimately you are the one that makes it all happen. It gives you control. In this book you will be given more than ten specific ways to immediately lower your blood glucose. It is a multi faceted approach, not a simple cure, but it can be done. I did it and I hope you can too.

The Glycemic-Load Diet: A powerful new program for losing weight and reversing insulin resistance

A cardiologist’s revolutionary weight-loss plan that allows dieters to enjoy good carbs while still losing weight

The glycemic index has been the basis of many popular diets. But it doesn’t take into account the serving sizes people actually eat and eliminates too many foods for dieters to stick with it. Now Dr. Robert Thompson’s breakthrough program uses the glycemic load–the glycemic index adjusted for serving size–to take the GI a step forward. The glycemic load is a more accurate and effective tool in controlling weight and insulin resistance, allowing dieters to eat more foods while still burning fat, cutting cravings, and speeding up their metabolism. Safe, simple, and scientifically proven, it’s the smartest weight-loss plan yet.
