Diet for Diabetics:

Super Meal Model to Reverse Diabetes

The “Death to Diabetes” Super Meal Model Diet for Diabetics was designed by the author after reviewing and analyzing more than 30 different diets.

The “Death to Diabetes” Super Meal Model Diet for Diabetics has many of the attributes of the Mediterranean Diet, Zone Diet, South Beach Diet, and Asian Diet, with critical nutritional modifications to address the real root causes of Type 2 diabetes and help to better control Type 1 diabetes with less insulin requirements.Raw Vegetables Reverse Type 2 Diabetes

The “Death to Diabetes” Super Meal Model Diet for Diabetics is part of a comprehensive 10-step and 6-stage diabetes wellness program that is designed to improve the health of people suffering with diabetes — Type 1 and Type 2. This nutritional model is a diet designed for diabetics, and is also designed to address obesity, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, heart disease, chronic fatigue, and other similar systemic ailments.

Some people see this nutritional program (diet for diabetics) as a”low carb” diet, but, the author sees it as a lot more than just a “low-carb” diet. He prefers the term “balanced” diet because there is a balance of carbs, proteins, and fats that improves the overall health and wellness of the body.

Consequently, this nutritional program can be used by non-diabetics, who want to lose weight, lower their blood pressure, or just improve their overall health.

For the science behind the Super Meal Model Diet for Diabetics, read about nutritional science and the clinical studies that the author used to design the model.Raw Salads Reverse Type 2 Diabetes

The “Death to Diabetes” Super Meal Model is truly THE Diabetes Diet for Diabetics, because it is specifically designed to help control, Type 1 diabetes and to help beat and reverse Type 2 diabetes — by providing a more sustained level of energy and key nutrients that diabetics (and non-diabetics) are missing when they consume the more traditional grain-based, overly-processed, nutrient-poor or starchy meal.

The “Death to Diabetes” Super Meal Model has a very nutrient-dense protocol that provides nutrients that are key to the effectivity of THE Diabetes Diet including: carotenoids, antioxidants, Omega-3 EFAs (EPA, DHA), chlorophyll, magnesium, potassium, chromium, Vitamin E, Vitamin C, fiber, water.

In addition, by avoiding the grain-based breakfast, diabetics and non-diabetics will not experience the mid-morning “crash” or craving for processed food/beverages. Over time, the “Death to Diabetes” Super Meal Model Diet for Diabetics will support blood glucose stabilization, cell repair and the regulation of the body’s production and utilization of insulin.

Note: Refer to the clinical studies, including the China Study, which substantiate the benefits of a plant-based nutritional program to prevent and possibly reverse the effects of heart disease, diabetes, and some cancers.

Super Meal Model Diet Attributes:

  • More frequent meals (4 to 6 times/day)
  • Smaller meals (400-500 calories)
  • Macro-nutrient Balance
  • (Super Carbs, Proteins, Fats, Liquids)
  • Key micronutrients, i.e. vitamins, minerals, phytochemicals)
  • High Fiber Content (30-35g/day)
  • Fermented Foods (3-5 times/week)
  • Raw Vegetables (50%-80%)
  • Some Raw Fruits
  • Nutritional Supplementation (Food-based)
  • Minimum/No flour, sugar, wheat, fructose, processed foods, fast foods
  • Minimum/No HFCS, PHO, nitrates, artificial sweeteners, food additives
  • Minimum/No caffeine, alcohol, drugs
  • Minimum/No dairy, especially pasteurized cow’s milk/cheese; gluten (for Type 1s)

Key Point: This is not a low fat diet! Ironically, low fat diets helped to make us fat!

Super Carbohydrates
include many bright, colorful and green, leafy vegetables, some dark, colorful fruits, and some specific organic whole grains (but, not wheat bread!). Super Foods

Super Proteins
include nuts, seeds, cold-water fish (i.e. wild salmon), tuna, fermented soy, organic dairy, lean animal meats (i.e. chicken, turkey, organic beef), wild animal meat (i.e. bison, ostrich, deer).
Note: If you are concerned about the mercury in fish, eat smaller fish or take an Omega-3 supplement.

Super Fats include plant oils, the oil in nuts and seeds, and cold-water fish — but avoid clear vegetable oils and canola oil!

Super Liquids include filtered water, raw vegetable juices; green tea, white tea; some raw fruit juices; and, a couple of the organic bottled juices, i.e. lemon, tomato, V-8.

Refer to Chapters 6 and 7 for a detailed list of all the super carbs, super proteins, super fats, and super liquids that support the Death to Diabetes Super Meal Model Diet for Diabetics.

Start eating the Super Meals, including the Super Breakfast, the Super Lunch, and the Super Dinner, and watch your blood glucose level start to steadily come down!

Stick with the program and watch the weight melt off your body!

Author’s Note:

Superior nutrition has a bigger impact on glucose tolerance and insulin resistance more so than any other wellness factor, including exercise.

My background in biochemistry and engineering, and my research into pathology, etiology, and epidemiology has helped me to understand diseases such as diabetes at the cellular level.

As a result, I am able to design nutritional protocols that help the body successfully fight diseases/maladies such as diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, obesity, and chronic fatigue. Once you understand the science of disease and. the science of nutrition, it’s a lot easier to design wellness solutions that will actually work.

p.s. During my research, I didn’t want to reinvent the wheel so I evaluated more than 30 different diets. Initially, I thought that given the number of diets out there that there must be a diet that would work for diabetics. But, what I discovered was that the majority of these diets had one or two major flaws that made those diets not beneficial to diabetics.

Diabetes Overview

January 9, 2011

There are primarily 3 types of diabetes:

* Type 1 Diabetes
* Type 2 Diabetes
* Gestational Diabetes

Type 1 Diabetes (aka Juvenile Diabetes)

Type 1 Diabetes usually occurs earlier in life, due to damaged beta cells which fail to produce insulin. People with Type 1 diabetes will require insulin to prevent serious hyperglycemia and life-threatening ketoacidosis, but they can reduce the amount of insulin they require by eating properly.

Unfortunately, Type 1 diabetics are told that they can eat whatever they want as long a they increase their insulin dosage. But, this is bad advice that leads to health issues with the eyes, kidneys, etc. later on in life.

Type 1 Diabetes Symptoms

The most common symptoms for Type 1 diabetes (juvenile or child onset) include, but are not limited to, frequent urination, thirst, vomiting, nausea, fatigue, unexplained weight loss, and abdominal pain. If you exhibit these symptoms, see your physician immediately.

Conventional Medical Care

With conventional medical care, the long-term prognosis for a Type 1 diabetic is dismal. More than one-third of all Type 1 diabetics die before the age of fifty.

The primary reason for this is a combination of the diabetes, the excess insulin, and poor nutrition. This leads to high cholesterol and inflammation levels, accelerating atherosclerosis and damage to the kidneys, eyes, nerves, and other organs.

Good News for Type 1 Diabetics

Type 1 diabetics do not have to feel doomed to a life of poor health and a possible early death — as long as the diabetic is willing to improve their nutritional profile.

By following the Super Meal Model Diet, Type 1 diabetics can sustain steady blood glucose levels and lower their insulin requirements by about half.

It is essential for all Type 1 diabetics to learn that they have the power to optimize their health with superior nutrition, which can give them the opportunity for a long and healthy life.

Type 2 Diabetes

Type 2 diabetes (non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus, NIDDM) has reached epidemic levels in the United States and other countries around the world. There are more than 24 million diabetics in the U.S. and more than 190 million worldwide.

Type 2 diabetes is a metabolic disorder where the cells of the body have lost the ability to effectively utilize the insulin produced by the pancreas. This is known as insulin resistance.

Type 2 diabetes used to be called adult-onset diabetes, because it primarily affected older adults. But today with more children being overweight and sedentary, Type 2 diabetes is affecting children as well as adults. As a result, Type 2 diabetes has reached such an epidemic level that 1 out of every 2 people knows someone who is diabetic! In fact, you may be surprised at the number of famous people and celebrities who are diabetic.

Type 2 diabetes is a combination of insulin resistance, leptin resistance, inflammation, toxicity, cellular dehydration, nutrient starvation, and oxidative stress that affects trillions of cells — which can lead to a dysregulated immune system. In other words, Type 2 diabetes is more than just a “blood sugar” disease!

This is important to understand because once you realize that controlling your blood sugar is only one component to beat and reverse your diabetes, achieving the ultimate goal of “death to your diabetes” is within your reach.

Insulin resistance and inflammation prevent your body’s cells from effectively using the insulin produced by the pancreas. That is, the insulin receptors on the surface of each cell are damaged (inflamed), ignoring the presence of insulin in your blood and refusing to allow glucose from your blood to enter your cells.

The cells in your body require the glucose (as fuel) in order to produce energy. Without this fuel, your cells cannot produce energy and perform their functions. Over a period of years, the insulin resistance and inflammation spreads to more and more cells, leading to an increase in the production of fat cells and the need for more insulin from those cells. This increases the fat storage, especially in the abdomen area, while inhibiting fat metabolism because of the excess insulin (known as hyperinsulinemia).

Over a period of years, this may lead to beta cell dysfunction, which may reduce insulin production and cause blood glucose levels to rise even further. In addition, there is an increase in oxidative stress, glycation, and a depletion of key micronutrients such as potassium, chromium, Vitamin C, and Vitamin E causing a severe nutrient deficiency.

All of this dysfunction leads to more cell membrane damage and a buildup of homocysteine, which causes damage to the artery walls. This leads to arterial plaque formation, an increase in blood viscosity and blood pressure, and, in some cases, an increase in cholesterol.  That’s why many diabetics end up taking prescription medications for diabetes, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol. Unfortunately, this combination of medications just make matters worse.

If Type 2 diabetes goes untreated, the excess insulin and excess blood glucose (hyperglycemia) damages the body’s blood vessels and can lead to thicker blood, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, high homocysteine, high c-reactive protein, arterial plaque formation, and low levels of chromium, magnesium, calcium, Vitamin C, and Vitamin E. These complications affect nearly every organ in the body, leading to kidney failure, diabetic retinopathy and blindness, peripheral neuropathy and amputation, serious skin infections, gangrene, cardiovascular disease, stroke, disability, osteoporosis, Alzheimer’s disease, hearing damage, nonketotic hyperglycemic hyperosmolar syndrome, and death.

However, the good news is that these biological changes can be corrected  and these complications prevented with a superior nutrition, a proper exercise regimen,  spiritual health, and less stress in your life.

Gestational Diabetes

Gestational diabetes is a temporary for of Type 2 diabetes that occurs during pregnancy.  In the majority of women found to have this condition, there are no symptoms of diabetes, and the diabetes usually goes away after the baby is born.

However, women with gestational diabetes have a strong likelihood of developing adult onset diabetes later in life due to poor eating habits.

Since gestational diabetes is a sign of nutritional deficiency, it can be overcome with superior nutrition, as defined by the Super Meal Model Diet.

Doctor Invites Diabetes Engineer to Medical Conference

September 17, 2008

Doctor Courtney heard about my coma story, my Death to Diabetes book and the overwhelming response from the audience after I gave a lecture to a cancer group. Because of all the positve feedback from the audience participants, he invited me to be interviewed on his radio show, which I accepted. The interview was a smash hit, and that eventually led him to invite me to speak at his medical conference.

NBC TV Interview: Ex-diabetic Engineer Survives Coma and Beats Type 2 Diabetes

September 16, 2008

DeWayne McCulley shocked the medical world by surviving a life-threatening diabetic coma, weaning himself off the insulin injections and other drugs, and losing more than 55 pounds. Then, with encouragement from his daughter Cynthia and his mother, DeWayne used his engineering and biochemistry background to beat the disease and write the now acclaimed book Death to Diabetes.
