Saturated Fats, Diabetes and Carb/Sugar Consumption
I received this detailed response to a recent video on my YouTube Channel about the documentary, What The Health. My response follows as a helpful guide, just in case you face a similar crisis with a friend or loved one down the road too. The YouTube video in question in this case is also at the bottom of the post if you’d like to watch it.
TheAltruismActivist: Hello Paul. Addressing your concern about the recommendations and research on diabetes, I believe that you are not looking deep enough into the issue.
Just because eating a sugary meal raises one’s blood sugar does not mean that sugar is the cause and main culprit of diabetes. Looking into it a step deeper, you must consider why the body is insulin-resistant (which causes the high, uncontrolled blood sugar).
There is much proof that dietary saturated fat is a significant inducer of insulin resistance. Pouring sugar into an insulin-resistant person’s body will surely exacerbate the diabetic issues, but the sugar intake is not the cause. Dietary saturated fat is.
That is how Dr. Walter Kempner, many decades ago, cured type 2 diabetics with a diet composed of white rice, white sugar, fruit, and fruit juice. That is not a healthy diet, but it proves that sugar is not the issue while dietary saturated fat is.
Switching anyone from a standard Western diet to a cleaner diet like yours will improve their diabetes, but that doesn’t mean further benefits can’t be obtained from digging deeper into the root cause of insulin resistance. Let me know your thoughts and response!
