Diabetes Diet Plan — What Is Best for Type 1 Diabetes?

Diabetes Diet Plan — What Is Best for Type 1 Diabetes?

Cyrus: As soon as you employ this process
you start to see that you’re able to eat much larger
quantities of carbohydrate coming from fresh fruits and fresh vegetables for smaller insulin
use. I’ll repeat that: more carbohydrate for less
insulin. We just got back from one of out retreats. We hold these retreats a couple of times per
year. It’s
an opportunity for people with type 1 diabetes, type one-and-a-half diabetes, pre-diabetes,
and type 2 diabetes to come together and learn
about the power of low fat plant based whole food
nutrition for significant improvements in insulin sensitivity. We’ve held multiple of these retreats before
and every single time, we’re able to promote a
significant improvement in blood glucose values, a reduction in insulin use, and a reduction
in insulin sensitizing oral medication. And we do it using the power of food. Now at our latest retreat, we had a total
f 14 people living with diabetes — 7 of whom were living
with insulin dependant diabetes. Now in this article we’re going to go into
detail about the results that each one of these people achieved in
improving their insulin sensitivity in as little as 4 days. That’s right. We arrive on Thursday, we’re there all day
Friday, all day Saturday, all day Sunday, and you go home on Monday. And you would think to yourself, “Well, in
4 days how much positive change can you really get in
improving your insulin sensitivity? Take a look below at the results that each
one of our insulin dependant diabetics achieved. Now, let’s go into a bit of detail here in
understanding what is insulin sensitivity. In the world of
low carbohydrate nutrition, you’ll be told over and over and over again in that the only
thing that matters is how much insulin you’re using per
day. That’s why all the literature out there is
showing you how to minimize your carbohydrate intake so that you can minimize your insulin
use. In the world of insulin sensitivity, however,
your insulin use is just one variable. The other
variable which you have to take into account is your total carbohydrate consumption. Insulin
sensitivity is defined as your total carbohydrate intake divided by your total insulin use in
a span of 24 hours. And at this Mastering Diabetes Retreat, what
we do is we teach people how to migrate towards a low fat diet because as
soon as you achieve a low fat diet, then the amount
of carbohydrate that you can consume — that your body can tolerate, that your digestive
system and muscles and liver can metabolize — starts
to go up. So that means less fat, more
carbohydrate. So as soon as you emply this process, you
start to see that you’re able to eat much larger
quantities of carbohydrates coming from fresh fruits and fresh vegetables for smaller insulin
use. I’ll repeat that: more carbohydrate for less
insulin. Now out first retreat attendee attended the
retreat eating 150 grams of carbohydrate in her
previous diet, and she used a total of 88.2 units of insulin, which means that her 24
hour insulin sensitivity was about 1.7. During the retreat, we instructed her to increase
her carbohydrate intake while reducing her fat intake. She was able to consume an average of 257
grams of carbohydrate and her insulin use fell to 58.6
units for a 24-hour insulin sensitivity of 4.4. So you
can see that her change in insulin sensitivity over this 4-day period was 258%. This is what happened in the first 4 days. Imagine as soon as she returns to her normal
life and continues this approach. Her insulin use is likely to continue falling
and her carbohydrate intake is likely to continue increasing as she controls
her blood glucose with more and more precision. Now out second attendee increased her total
insulin sensitivity by a total of 309%, and she did
this by increasing her carbohydrate intake only by about 50 grams per day. But as you can see,
her total insulin use went from 50 units per day all the way down to 22 units per day. So what
that means is that she’s eating more carbohydrate, but she cut her insulin use in half in only
a 4- day period. And as a result of that her total insulin
sensitivity increased by a total of 309%. The third person increased her carbohydrate
intake from an average of about 200 grams per
day all the way up to about 300 grams per day, and in this process she also cut her
insulin use by 50%. You can see here she started out using a total
of 60 units per day, divided about in half between basal and bolus, and reduced it all
the way down to 30 units per day. As a result, she
increased her insulin sensitivity by a total of 299%. Our next attendee increased her carbohydrate
intake by twofold. In other words, she started to
eat double the amount of carbohydrate that she ate when she previously came — 208 grams
versus about 110 grams previously. As a result of that, her insulin use fell
from 43.6 units per day all the way down to 27.6 units per day,
giving her an increase in her total insulin sensitivity
of about 162%. This gentleman increased his carbohydrate
intake from 275 grams per day all the way up to 422
grams per day, and in the process he was able to cut about 8 units of insulin off of his
standard baseline of 37 units per day. What that means is that his insulin sensitivity
went from a 7.4 all the way to a 14.4, which is a change of about
193%. Our next attendee increased her carbohydrate
intake by about 50%. She went from about 100
grams per day to about 142 grams per day. Now you’ll notice here that her insulin use
actually slightly went up, and the reason for that
is simple. Before she came to the retreat, she was
using only basal insulin – zero bolus units per day. In the retreat, we showed her how to
decrease her basal use of insulin. And in the process, she found that she needed
a little bit more bolus insulin. So her total insulin use actually climbed
from 18 units per day to about 23 units per day. Despite that slight increase in her insulin
usage, her insulin sensitivity still went up. So in the first 4 days, she noticed about
111% increase in her insulin sensitivity. So you can see in each of these situations
how adopting a low fat whole food plant based approach makes significant changes in a very
short period of time. Now, each of these
attendees has gone back to their life, has gone back to their daily routine, but done
so by changing the food that they are eating and
changing their movement patterns according to what
they learned while at the retreat. What you’re looking at here is just the tip
of the tip of the tip of the iceberg because this 4-day
period for a lot of individuals is just a launching point into a brand new lifestyle
that leads to improved insulin sensitivity over the course
of time. Now we like to talk about the fact that this
is just biology. We understand the biology of diabetes
and insulin resistance better than most people. And as a result of that, simply integrating
a low fat plant based whole foods approach, we can
see dramatic differences in a short period of time
that then lead to dramatic differences in the long-term. Now whether you’re interested in participating
in a coaching program, showing up to one of our
retreats, or just doing this on your own, the world is your oyster. Keep in touch with us, let us
know how we can help you, and we hope that we can get the same results for you that you
saw for all the other retreat attendees. Thanks for listening.

  1. Hi – is telling diet plan the same for insulin resistance? When you don't inject insulin? How also, can I determine my insulin usage?

  2. It's so sad that the hispanic community that has diabetes don't know anything about diabetes….. i was talking with my cousin who has type 1 diabetes and he didn't know what A1C was.

  3. is someone can tell me why he don't have hairs on is face?
    I don't want to be mean … it's just that … I mean it's so unusual…

    back to the video well it's doesn't works for me. too much fruits and starches equals gain weight and been so hungry… guess everybody is different

  4. commit to the program and reep the benefits of rapid amazing results!!!! going to the June 2016 mastering diabetes retreat was such a blessing… thank Robby n Cy, keep up the good work 😁

  5. This is such a great experience you're sharing. Thank you.

    I don't think you're being deliberately dishonest with the math, but you're doing the percent increase wrong. Going from 5.6 to 6.2 isn't a 111% increase, it's an 11% increase, same way if your salary goes from $100,000 to $110,000 that's a 10% increase not a 110% increase.

    The actual math is right (6.2/5.6 does equal 1.11) but you're saying that's the change and that's not the case with what you're presenting. And that seems to be the case with all of your change in insulin sensitivity percentages.

    Don't get me wrong, I know what you guys do work, my girlfriend has experienced this eating raw. But the math and presentation need to be right. Thanks!

  6. Hello and thank you for this information. What would be more useful would be to see the blood glucose readings throughout the day on your eating plan. Looking at insulin sensitivity is good but pointless if you are not able to keep bloods in range for most of the day. What do the post prandial blood sugars look like? How high does the bg spike after meals? Can you maintain 'normal' levels and for how long during the day eating huge amount of carbs? Much more information is needed and this is really not even half of the picture? Best regards from a parent with t1 child in Scotland.

  7. I loved this video! I'm not diabetic. But I do have high blood sugar. It is different then some people but my high and low are both high. I changed to a vegan diet two years ago and I have not had really any sugar drops at all in those two years. I'm testing out a raw till 4 diet this week and its day 5. I love how i'm feeling and its really a great feeling that I don't have head aches. But changing my night diet is really hard. I still eat out and eating I'm still eating wheat at times. I'm trying to cut out soy, wheat and junk food! I'm going share this video with some of my family members and friends. Some of them are not healthy and i want them to see what healthy food can do just in a week. Don't fry just say good bye to the foods that make your heart hurt!

    Plus cyrus do you have a snapchat?

  8. How would you explain the benefits of eating high amounts of fructose and barely any healthy fats or protein? Would this way of eating be beneficial for someone looking to build or maintain muscle mass?

  9. I am interestied this is interested stuff, i have just come on this video automatically after wahthing a video about low "carb" for type 1s and this one is saying the opposite lol, which one, i cannot make up my mind…

  10. As a pre diabetic I am very scared of hurting myself with the extra carbs, around 450 grams, I am completely drained of energy and can't eat enough to keep my energy up. Any thoughts?

  11. how would you measure insulin sensitivity if you never injected insulin? ive taken metformin, but lately have stopped, and tryed low carb high unsaturated fat diet plus exercise. my last A1C was still at 7.5, kind of high

  12. Yes thank you for replying, I am trying to master this technique you all are describing, my nutrition is completely low fat plant based whole food as described, my carbs are everything from fruits to potatoes, and carb heavy vegies, I have seen dramatic weight loss in the week that I have been applying this technique to my life, 5 pounds down, however my daily energy is so far off it concerns me, I have set a doctors appointment to get a base line on my numbers and blood work to detect possible low t, at 47 I am in that range. I would love to communicate directly with you, however I do understand that might not be possible, I firmly believe in this approach and will continue to try to perfect it. Thanks again for any assistance!

  13. I have type two diabetes just started watching your videos had a question when eating a salad what dressing would you recommend or what type ?

  14. 😮🤔💕 Awsome !! … Where can I find info about the retreat? … I'm in Maryland … I hope it's near.

  15. Hi, I heard you have a program about diabetes. I have a history of type 2 diabetes in my family. I have struggled with obsetity since childhood and I'm afraid of developing it early. Does your program include meal plans? My biggest challenge is knowing what to prepare. I tend to better on a meal plan because it keeps on track and prevents me from making bad food choices. I notice that you allow more fruits than most programs. Would that cause weight gain?

  16. Hey guys, really great content!   I am 41 years old and 4 months ago was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes.  To say it came as a shock would be an understatement.  But within weeks of digging around online at more progressive approaches to not only deal with diabetes symptoms but also optimise for long term health, I came upon the whole food, plant based, low fat protocol you and a growing handful of others were advocating.  Several months later and I'm happy to report that my A1C is 5.7, I eat 500-700 grams of carbs a day with reduced insulin than initially prescribed and my energy is fantastic.  In short, I feel better than ever andI live a full, active and healthy life.  I'm grateful for the message and research you guys share and hope that it continues to reach more people.

  17. I'm a new t1d.I'm so happy to see this video, I really almost follow doctor's suggestion to try lchf which I really don't like,and may cause high bp&cholesterol.

  18. My understanding from all the research I have done brings me back to one common denominator with all these diets….fat loss. So if u eat HFLC /HCLF/HPLCLF does the same

  19. However I have been eating vegan for 2 weeks without my pills n my morning blood sugar readings are still high ie 8mmol. My only fat intake is a handful of almonds and from chia seeds per day. I noticed that I have not been consuming much greens, could that be the factor why am not losing weight or seeing better improvements in my results?

  20. Cheers for the video content! Forgive me for butting in, I would love your opinion. Have you heard the talk about – Patlarny Sugar Outcome Principle (should be on google have a look)? It is a great exclusive product for reversing diabetes without the headache. Ive heard some unbelievable things about it and my work buddy after many years got amazing success with it.

  21. Just wonderful, I have been researching "raw diet for diabetes" for a while now, and I think this has helped. Ever heard of – Deyophia Vanackenzie Remedy – (just google it ) ? Ive heard some super things about it and my mate got great success with it.

  22. Quick question. Average carb intake: 220g. Average insulin use: 4units = 55? I assume that's good but is it bad to being too sensitive?

  23. I want to know about specific meals. It's all confusing this guy says lfhc yet other people on YouTube say the opposite like keto I've actually been told by so called dietician to eat lots of neat etc like paleo

  24. He might be sick or something, Cancer perhaps, who knows?
    So nothing personal but he looks like an Alien with purple lips, greenish face and no eyebrows.
    keep on trucking dude, do your thing. All said with a smile, no pointing fingers.

  26. Totally confusing so many differing opinions one says high another says higher fat it’s ridiculous

  27. Exploring “Gαjοjο Fivu” (Google it) will help you to recover from diabetes and attain a healthy way of life. For a period of time of 1 ½ months, my husband has been an enthusiastic follower of the program. It`s been five years since he has been using insulin shots. He has been a type 2 diabetes patient for six years. Since reading through this program and adhering to the program he is eating better everyday & everyday…

  28. My friend advised this “Vαnοjο Fivu” (Google it) for my weight and diabetes. I had been following a rigid fitness and also diet program. I had been able to lessen Thirty five points from my blood glucose levels after a day on the diet program. Right after Four days, I lost Sixty points from my blood glucose levels. It`s been efficient for me. I am so happy that I managed to stabilize my blood sugar levels..
