Diabetes Diet

The DTD Super Meal Diabetes Diet contains super carbs, super proteins, super fats and super liquids that contain the critical nutrients for diabetics. As a result, Type 2 diabetics are able to reverse their diabetes.

Super Carbs, Proteins, Fats & Liquids

As you are aware, there are 3 major macronutrients (carbs, proteins and fats) that can be either “good” or “bad”. I decided to add a 4th, called liquids because of the importance of water.

FYI: I use the word “super” in place of “good” because it seemed to be more impactful to the audience members.

As a result, my diabetes diet and nutritional program (meal plate method) is made up of super carbs, super proteins and super fats:

Super Carbohydrates include mono-, di-, and poly-saccharides in the form of bright, colorful and green, leafy vegetables, some dark, colorful fruits, onions, garlic, other herbs & spices, legumes, medicinal mushrooms, and some specific organic whole grains (but, not wheat or any grains with gluten!).

Examples of vegetables include spinach, broccoli, Brussel sprouts, kale, asparagus, cauliflower, celery, cucumbers, kelp, onions, garlic, lentils, okra, and bell peppers.

Examples of fruits include dark, bright colored fruits such as açai berries, blackberries, blueberries, cherries, cranberries, strawberries, apples, grapes, pears, kiwi, lemons, limes, and pomegranates.

Note: Eating mostly raw vegetables can accelerate your body’s repair process and your body’s ability to reverse your diabetes.

Note: We recommend that most diabetics avoid all grains and most fruits during the first 3 stages of the program to help heal the gut.

Super Proteins include all the essential and non-essential amino acids in the form of nuts, seeds, cold-water fish (e.g. wild salmon, tuna), blue-green algae (chlorella, spirulina), fermented soy, organic dairy (e.g. organic, Omega-3, free-range eggs), lean animal meats (e.g. free-range chicken, turkey, organic beef), wild animal meat (e.g. bison, ostrich, deer).

Note 1: If you are concerned about the mercury in fish, eat smaller fish like sardines or take a high quality Omega-3 supplement.

Note 2: Fermented foods such as sauerkraut, pickles, homemade yogurt, kombucha (fermented black tea), miso and tempeh (fermented soybeans) help to improve the intestinal flora balance, build the immune system, absorb more nutrients, and generate new nutrients including Omega-3 fatty acids, digestive aids and the trace mineral GTF chromium.

Note 3: If you plan to follow a vegan diet, you can still use our nutritional model — just replace animal protein with non-animal protein; and, add more beans, lentils, nuts, seeds, vegetables, fruits, (some) organic whole grains, healthy fats, and other super foods to your meal plan. Also, add meat substitutes (e.g. veggie burgers, black bean burgers, meatless “chicken nuggets”, “beef” crumbles, etc.) and organic soy products (e.g. soy milk, edamame, soy nuts, tofu, tempeh).

Super Fats include various lipids in the form of plant oils and the unsaturated fats in nuts and seeds, and cold-water fish, e.g. extra virgin olive oil, extra virgin coconut oil, unprocessed cod liver oil. But, you must avoid the clear vegetable oils and canola oil!

Note: There are also super fats in nuts, seeds, avocados, raw butter, and organic eggs.

Super Liquids include various beverages in the form of filtered or distilled water, raw vegetable juices; green tea, white tea; some raw fruit juices; and, a couple of the low-carb organic bottled juices, e.g. lemon, tomato, V-8, mangosteen.
