Plant Based Diets Recognized by Diabetes Associations Updated on October 18, 2019 By William Clement 82 Comments By William Clement 82 Comments Nocturnal Butterfly July 29, 2019 👏👏👏 Reply chiyerano July 29, 2019 This is some truly good news. 😊 Reply Thomas Pomeroy July 29, 2019 When I went to see my dietician for type II diabetes she talked only about how to read the sides of boxes to know ice cream bars have lots of sugar. She never said: Don't eat things that come out of boxes. I spent years doing research and did low carb for a long time. Then I had heart issues, and discovered Plant based eating. This has also helped by diabetese and I have significant weight lose. Reply Adam Kučera July 29, 2019 nice propaganda Reply Natural Hulkster July 29, 2019 If carbs cause diabetes than why aren't people following a whole food plant based diet dying left and right from this disease? Reply R. Ann Rousseau July 29, 2019 Sorry, plant based didn't work for me. I tried it for a year. Had to switch to kero/low carb. Run from anything tge ADA or any diabetes org recommend. They're donors are the business to make money off diabetics. Check the donor list of these orgs. Reply Red Pill Vegan July 29, 2019 2 steps forward, 1 step back. ADA has also made low carb diets standard of care. Covered in the Virta Health Exposè Reply Ivail July 29, 2019 Bear with me please… In a book written long time ago it is said: “I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food…" Reply Herb Bowler July 29, 2019 Type 2 diabetes can be cured with plant based diet and exercise Reply Chase Sage July 29, 2019 i say let them die…I'd just rather not pay for it! Reply Bolita July 29, 2019 Are you planning to do a video about hypothyroidism and diet? 🙏 Reply NutritionFacts.org July 29, 2019 The PCRM Geico studies I mentioned were highlighted in these videos: Slimming the Gecko (https://nutritionfacts.org/video/slimming-the-gecko-2) and Plant-Based Workplace Intervention (https://nutritionfacts.org/video/plant-based-workplace-intervention) Reply Sebastian Marelli July 29, 2019 A video about Hypothyroidism and Hyperthyroidism would be great.Thanks Doc for all the awesome Work you and your Team do!! Reply Eelke Aptroot July 29, 2019 Eating only plants is sooo extreme… Reply Universal Soldier July 29, 2019 Two weeks ago, I think I transitioned into diabetes. My vision changed and I noticed some tingling in my pinkie toe. When I checked my blood (thanks to my grandmother's meter), I had a sugar well over 250. I immediately went plant-based (no oil, low fat) while I waited for an appointment with my primary care physician. Two weeks later, my sugar is stable, I feel amazing, and I can't see eating any other way. I know I'm not "cured" but I'm also in a much better place than I was just 15 days ago. Incredible what a plant-based diet can do. Reply Lee Maitland July 29, 2019 Showed this to my Dad, T2 diabetic, COPD, diverticulitis, and other ageing related diseases. Like many of the videos and information I show him he pretty much said 'wow that's really cool' and went away to eat a bacon/mayonnaise sandwich followed by a BOX of Krispy Kremes. This has happened for years, I've learned that no matter what they're told, some people just prefer eating what they want and being sick. You can't push someone up a ladder if they aren't willing to climb, for your own health and sanity, better to climb the ladder and have them follow. Look after yourselves peeps, eat a WFPB diet and others just might follow your example on their own. Reply Molson Muscle July 29, 2019 Me – "A plant based diet can cure T2D but Diabetes Canada still has dairy and processed meat on it's website as a healthy diet" Diabetes Canada – "But Jamie Oliver says…." Me – FML. Reply Robert Perlini July 29, 2019 Going to share with all i can Reply Meditative Mind July 29, 2019 Type 2 diabetes is caused by overeating and mixing sugar with animal fat. We can heal type 2 diabetes on high sugar and low fat diet and also on ketogenic high fat very low carb diet. I heal insulin resistance on 80% fat 15% protein and 5% carbs Reply Abc 123 July 29, 2019 There was a study done on male pattern baldness that proved that those who do high intensity exercise 20mins a day, have almost zero male pattern baldness, while those who do only light aerobic exercise have increased rates of male pattern baldness. Athletes do look younger because they put their dna into a constant state of repair. Reply laagaa1 July 29, 2019 Add Russian subtitles please!.. Reply Courtney HAMILTON July 29, 2019 PROUD CANADIAN HERE! 🙂 Reply Sascha Thinius July 29, 2019 Hey Dr. Greger… do you have literature links on how to do the transition for a t2dm person to a wfpb diet… in a controlled way… like what speed of transformation etc… and do you know of any md's in Germany who would support a patient… the standard doc here still believes it would kill the patient, with all the carbs… I bet that you have to up the intake of 'good' carbs and fiber gradually… any links would be very helpful Reply amclellan84 July 29, 2019 Go on Canada! Reply Han Boetes July 29, 2019 Its criminal negligence not to inform the patients about a plant based diet. Reply cuteblackberry1 July 29, 2019 From London UK, in the UK doctors are not trained in diet, nutrition. They are trained to prescribe. I dumped my doctor, 5 years ago when I was prediabetes. I went to doctor utube + Google. I discovered vegan + raw vegan. I have not looked back ever since. Reply Jermaine July 29, 2019 SUPER FAX! Reply Mike Skylark July 29, 2019 Plant-based diet is very vague term… Is it 95%, 80%, 55%… Which is it? Omnivorous general population ALREADY eats 70-80% plant based (processed to be exact!)… I think we need to come-up with a firm definition of ''what IS a plant-based diet, and what it's not''… In most cases it's not reffered as 100% plant-based (with supplements), but it usually contains some animal products. Unfortunately! Reply Beatnik Bandit Racing July 29, 2019 I like clams Reply Andrew G July 29, 2019 Most doctors don't recommend pbd because they are either ignorant or don't want their 'customers' to become healed and, therefore, stop patronizing them. Reply DrD July 29, 2019 Unfortunately, in Canada our soon-to-be new Prime Minister Andrew Sheer has gone on public record saying he would like to reverse these positive changes (in an effort to curry favour with our powerful daily and cattle industries). Reply Shari T July 29, 2019 'The evidence for the benefits of plant based nutrition continues to mount ' -Dr. K WIlliams. Well said! Reply Sidilicious July 29, 2019 Fan-frickn-tastic!! The “fad” is becoming mainstream fast now. These guidlines alone will help so many people IF they can give up dairy and meat, a big IF for folks like my Mom who has type 2 diabetes and is in her 90’s. Some people would rather shoot them selves up every day instead of changing their diets. Reply bang turden July 29, 2019 death is really rampant with modern day diet, or any diet. 100% death rate so far 😉 i know, they really meant "premature death". Reply sabine c July 29, 2019 Type 1 Diabetic and whole food plant based for 4 years with astonishing improvements re 50% lower insulin needs, and typical improvements of weight loss into a normal range, normal cholesterol, no more pain from neuropathy, good energy levels = motivation to exercise, and more….. Vegan for life! Thanks to all the brave, pioneering, unapologetic plant based docs!! Reply Kelley King July 29, 2019 Why did my father’s nutritionist recommend low carb, high protein for diabetes? Reply reinux July 29, 2019 Patients wanting not to reduce animal products is one thing, but the mental gymanstics I've seen prominent doctors go through to try to dismiss plant-based diet is incredible. Reply Cathy Lynn Pietranton July 29, 2019 Super foods plants and fruits Reply Peter Rabitt July 29, 2019 I get so many people ridiculing this to my face, it stopped being funny. Here's what I think: people are gonna listen to advice that conforms with their comfort zone, wherever that might be. If a person is currently addicted to cola and doughnuts, I can virtually guarantee that they will deny the applicability of the WFPBD in treating diabetes. People almost always do what they irrationally believe they must do, no matter what information they're given. People [edit: almost] always believe what they were programmed by mass media to believe. Reply Lloyd Christmas July 30, 2019 Plants for the win again. One more for the good guys. Reply Adam Alfred July 30, 2019 DR KIM YEAYYYYYYY 😀 😀👍 Reply truefuschniken July 30, 2019 Thanks for the info!!!! 🙂 Reply Gabriel Hernandez July 30, 2019 ALELuuuuuuiA Reply R D July 30, 2019 Hasn't hit canadian colleges yet, i am being told to eat bone broth, connective tissue and liver from my nutrition teacher… and that plants aren't a complete protien and vegan and vegetarians are all nutrient deficient. Reply Angeles Rivera July 30, 2019 ABOUT TIME! Reply Patsy July 30, 2019 Please go on Joe Rogan's show and spred some knowledge! ❤️️ Reply Gwenedd July 30, 2019 It looks like the PC’s are getting in this October. Their leader Scheer says they are bringing dairy back in to the Canadian food guide, especially milk. Scheer says chocolate milk save his kid’s life because he wouldn’t drink white milk and was at risk of bone disease from a dairy deficiency. He was at a dairy farmers convention at the time. It’s all about the money. Our new food guide is the only thing the Trudeau government got right! Reply paulaaquino July 30, 2019 Anyone has a link to this study??? Reply Don Jagoe July 30, 2019 Well that’s about as clear as possible. Now we need clinician and GP adoption. Reply GuilhotinaGamez July 30, 2019 Anything is better than SAD!!! Reply The Retrospective July 30, 2019 Medical students in most western countries receive 4-8 hours of nutritional education. Even if it was 48 hours, it would be too little. Diet is so important. Reply Louis Gedo July 30, 2019 Create a Better World by……GOING and staying healthy and VEGAN Reply Michelle Ciociano July 30, 2019 I'm trying to get my diabetic mom and dad to eat a vegan whole food plant based diet but, they tell me they listen to their doctor who recommends, fish and white meat! Ugh Reply Peteys Ponderings July 30, 2019 excellent video! Reply Kevin Willis July 30, 2019 I totally disagree with the conclusions here. Realty check to Vegans/Vegetarians. Homo Sapiens evolved eating animal products as the main source of our diet. Plants were a minor percentage of our food. There was little or no diabetes, cavities, heart disease, etc among these earlier populations. About 50 years ago a small cadre of people convinced us that meat 🥩 & the fat associated with eating animals was detrimental to our health. And look what has happened to us now! We are fatter, diabetes and it’s concomitant negative side affects are reaching epidemic proportions! Eating low carb or a Keto lifestyle seems to solve a lot of these issues!Let’s not keep our heads buried in the sand and look at facts! Reply Djinn-1 July 30, 2019 Sugar comes from plants… O.o Reply Angie Tyndall July 30, 2019 What of those of us diagnosed as being Hypoglycemics? What research is there for us per healthy eating and/or reversing this metabolic disorder; etc.? It is hardly discussed, just DM I & II is. Reply Simon Boudreau July 30, 2019 And yet, it's nowhere to be found on the Canadian diabetes association website Reply Vanja's Vegan Voyage July 30, 2019 Finally we are making strides in the right direction. I am really surprised it has taken out society so long to recognize the benefits of plant based diets. Absolute insanity Reply GrimSpeaker July 30, 2019 I cured myself with bacon.First it is ridiculed. Lol Reply monkeygirl000 July 30, 2019 I would like to see the terminology change to “whole plant diets” (WPD) rather than “vegan” or the lengthier “whole food, plant-based diet”. I feel like WPD is just more concise, while the vague “vegan” label does not relate to healthiness. I have seen a “whole food, plant-based” muffin recipe. Now…tell me…how could a muffin be a whole food? It could contain some whole foods (many very-unhealthy ones already do). But much of what goes into a muffin is not a whole food, even if everything is plant-based. In looking at the commentary, it is clear the author is confusing WFPB with “vegan”. I am very excited about WPD. Getting as much of my food into me, in the form of whole plant food, is a low-key daily goal. 😀 Reply Salujathustra July 30, 2019 Night doesn't disappeared off the Earth's face unless it rotates about its own axis. Great to see how corporate houses and media houses keep us in the dark. Reply Mike B July 30, 2019 More proof we're winning.. Reply luanne dimaggio July 31, 2019 Always grateful for you and your passion. Reply dust man July 31, 2019 Chew on that Joe Rogan Reply wayne busse July 31, 2019 Seven months on a plant based diet eating tons of fruit and starches lowered my A1C from 6.3 to 5.7, ldl from 155 to 75 , BP from 138/80 to 116/60 . Stopped my pancreatic cancer from growing or spreading for the first time in six years. Reversed my ED and shortness of breath during exercise. Oh and I've lost 45 lbs ! Take that all you meat eaters… Reply A. S. VanHoose July 31, 2019 At this point I can't imagine eating dairy and meat. The beans, potatoes and rice are too satisfying. Reply Fox Kitten July 31, 2019 They still don't have it, recommending no eggs?? Reply Dick Morhead July 31, 2019 My dietitian told me this same info many years ago. There is nothing new here. Reply crazywaffleking July 31, 2019 What does plant based have to do with veganism? Very different diets Reply Jello Btz August 1, 2019 Please do a video about keto and intermittent fasting Reply Yakov Butterfield August 2, 2019 Is this the same stage that Tobacco was in in the 1970s? Reply kean64 August 2, 2019 What about for type1 diabetes? Reply Bonnie Hoke-Scedrov August 3, 2019 Great video! Thank God!! My doctor is still in the dark ages. Anyone got a better one in Philadelphia?… Reply L Elaine August 3, 2019 Tone is everything. Snarkiness doesn’t win converts. Reply Molly Malone August 4, 2019 On April first of this year, I weighed 296 pounds. It's August 3rd, I weight 239. I'm getting there. It makes a difference. Reply Ray Arjomand August 4, 2019 Plant based diet is Best for Herbivores. Therefore we are Herbivores (even though some of us HATE it, that's the Truth). It's not an emotional issue, it's a scientific Fact. Reply The Green Swan August 4, 2019 What is your opinion on FODMAP diets? Reply mweb1 August 7, 2019 ADA recommendations CAUSE diabetes to keep them in business. Eat meat (Vitamin A in the correct form). Reply Matt Lauer August 21, 2019 Diabetics should eat a low carb high fat diet. Lots of complete protein animal foods and vegetables. No grains or fruit. This will virtually eliminate the high blood sugar problem and you will lose weight. The vegans are wrong just like the crazy Mormons! Reply Gene Preston August 26, 2019 A plant based diet can easily contain wheat, flour, corn, soy and sugar: all vegan and terrible for diabetes. Type 2 especially is caused by an excess of carbs and plants produce carbs. I have cured diabetes in folks on a Paleo diet. Vegan diets can work for diabetics but they need employ very healthy plants. Eating Ramen in a Styrofoam cup is vegan but not healthy. Reply Candace Kinser August 27, 2019 Fabulous summary!
