Overall Guidelines. There is no such thing as a single diabetes diet. Patients should meet with a professional dietitian to plan an individualized diet within the general guidelines that takes into consideration their own health needs.
Cleansing-and-detoxification is a set of normal biochemical processes performed by the body’s liver, colon, kidneys and other organs to remove chemicals, toxins and impurities from the cells, blood, and tissues.
Your body uses insulin to convert the food you eat into energy. Here’s how the process works in a non-diabetic person: calories are consumed, blood sugar rises, then the pancreas releases insulin to convert the sugar into energy. Any sugar not used as energy will be stored as fat to be used as energy later.
Benefits from colon cleansing include a dramatic relief of aches and pains in the back, chest and joints; a dramatic increase of energy and mental awareness; overwhelming joy, incredible insight, and even better sex.
A seven-day detox diet isn’t appropriate for all people. If you have a chronic health condition such as liver disease, diabetes, cancer, kidney disease, or an eating disorder, it’s crucial to consult your doctor before modifying your diet.
Foods high in chromium: Chromium is a nutrient that’s involved in normal carbohydrate and lipid metabolism. Foods high in chromium can improve the glucose tolerance factor in your body and naturally balance out blood glucose levels. It plays a role in insulin pathways, helping bring glucose into our cells so it can be used for bodily energy. Broccoli has the highest amounts of chromium, but you can also find it in raw cheese, green beans, brewer’s yeast and grass-fed beef. (10)
In relation to type 2 diabetes, eating most food earlier in the day may be associated with lower levels of overweight and obesity and other factors that reduce the risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
Meat and Cheese. The exchange groups for meat and cheese are categorized by lean meat and low-fat substitutes, medium-fat meat and substitutes, and high-fat meat and substitutes. Use high-fat exchanges a maximum of 3 times a week. Fat should be removed before cooking. Exchange sizes on the meat list are generally 1 ounce and based on cooked meats (3 ounces of cooked meat equals 4 ounces of raw meat).
I was referring to free health clinics around the valley (Las Vegas) or in a city near the patient. All cities have them, they are just hard to find and some are traveling medical centers. Thank you so much for subscribing and for leaving me this comment. All I want to do is be of help.

All “regular food” is out for this session (depending on your level, as indicated above, of diabetes). Your diabetes diet for the next 3 to 14 days will consist of vegetables, fruits, oatmeal, and juices containing fresh organic fruits and vegetables. MOST FRUIT IS OFF LIMITS FOR THE FIRST 5 DAYS! Use the plain oatmeal when you have an urge to chew something (and you will!). Additionally, if you get tired of oatmeal, eat the fruits and vegetables whole, instead of juicing them. DO NOT BUY JUICE, MAKE IT! Your juice (preferably from a Nutribullet Juice Maker -$99-) will consist of a combination of YOUR choice of…
As for the rest of your meals, make sure they are full of protein (eggs, cage-free organic chicken/turkey), healthy fats (nuts, avocado, fish oils), and natural sugars (fruits and carrots). Nothing out of a bag, even if it does say sugar-free, fat-free, diet, organic, or all-natural. All foods should be raw or very lightly cooked. No carbs for the first 60 days. If you “slip up”, make sure it’s very small. Sugars spur all disease to a more dangerous level (IE Stage-1 cancer become Stage-2, disease symptoms begin to show, or chronic conditions don’t want to go away [daily migraines]).
What’s more, other research indicates that healthy habits can take up to six weeks to become ingrained—and that treating yourself to small rewards can help motivate you to stick with those positive changes.
Research at the American Diabetes Association conference and published in Diabetologia demonstrated that people who go on a very low calorie diet can remove fat which is clogging up the pancreas allowing normal insulin secretion to be restored.
Barbecue chicken: Grill or roast 3 oz chicken and top with 2 Tbsp barbecue sauce. Serve with 1 slice garlic sourdough toast, spread with1 tsp olive oil and garlic, and colorful coleslaw (mix 1 c shredded red and green cabbage and carrots with 1 Tbsp regular coleslaw dressing or 2 Tbsp reduced-fat dressing).
Step #5: Let the coffee mixture cool for 20 minutes. If it’s still hot to touch after this time, you may add ice cubes. Pour this mixture into an enema bucket. Kendall Seamless Enema Set with Bucket or Stainless Steel Enema Kit 2 Quart Container. No Latex. Make sure the tubing is attached, and the tubing is closed off. Check temperature.
Milk and Substitutes. The milk and substitutes list is categorized by fat content similar to the meat list. A milk exchange is usually 1 cup or 8 ounces. Those who are on weight-loss or low-cholesterol diets should follow the skim and very low-fat milk lists — while avoiding the whole milk group. Others http://diabetevv.com/diabetic-cold-medicine/diabetes.detox=l3506 use the whole milk list very sparingly. All people with diabetes should avoid artificially sweetened milks.

Eggs and English muffin: Scramble 1 egg in a pan coated with 1 tsp canola or olive oil; top with ¼ c chopped tomato, onion, and chile salsa. Serve with toasted 100% whole grain English muffin, spread with 2 Tbsp low-fat (1%) cottage cheese, and 1 c fat-free milk.
Sweat – At least three or more times per week you are going to want to break a sweat or two. Out here in the desert that is more than doable, but in your neck of the woods you are going to want to exercise and maybe even visit the sauna.
The kidneys also help regulate other bodily functions by secreting the hormones renin, erythropoietin, and prostaglandin. Renin helps control blood pressure, erythropoietin stimulates the body to produce more red blood cells, and prostaglandin helps control blood pressure, muscle contractions, and inflammation.
One downside of eating fish is some kinds may contain high levels of mercury, notably shark, swordfish, king mackerel, and tilefish. While children and pregnant women are advised by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to avoid eating these varieties, the benefits of eating fish outweigh the potential risks for middle-aged and older men and women, as long as the amount of fish is eaten within FDA and Environmental Protection Agency guidelines. Eating a variety of seafood helps minimize the amount of mercury in your diet.
To stave off common detox reactions such as headache and nausea, try phasing out caffeine, sugar, processed foods, and artificial sweeteners in the days leading up to your detox diet. If you’re not ready to give up caffeine altogether, switch to lower-caffeine drinks like green tea, white tea, or matcha.
However, if you have diabetes the process works differently: you consume calories, insulin is released in response to the increased blood sugar but your body is unable to use the insulin effectively. Your brain sees that your blood sugar is still going up, so it asks your pancreas to release more insulin. But since your body can’t use it’s insulin to convert sugars into fuel, these sugars are now stored as fat, or they float around your blood stream. None of this is good.
For many years, soy was promoted as a food that could help lower cholesterol and improve heart disease risk factors. Recent studies have found that soy protein and isoflavone supplement pills do not have major effects on cholesterol or heart disease prevention. The American Heart Association still encourages patients to include soy foods as part of an overall heart healthy diet but does not recommend using isoflavone supplements.
Some studies show that, in many people, the brain actually reacts to sugar like it does to drugs and alcohol. This explains why, when you initially remove sugar from your diet, you feel horrible for a few days. It’s sort of like trying to cut a coffee habit cold turkey. You get headaches, feel jittery, and you’re a bit sluggish.
Fiber is an important component of many complex carbohydrates. It is found only in plant foods such as vegetables, fruits, whole grains, nuts, and legumes (dried beans, peanuts, and peas). Fiber cannot be digested. Instead, it passes through the intestines, drawing water with it, and is eliminated as part of feces content. The following are specific advantages from high-fiber diets (up to 50 grams a day):
Dandelion root: is one of the two major herbal liver tonics (with milk thistle) that helps to increase both the production and the flow of bile. It also prevents liver congestion by helping to flush out fat deposits.
Drinking as little as two or three cups of fresh vegetable juice every day can help diabetics, as long as juicing is part of an overall diet that’s nutritious and healthy. Of course, the right types of produce must be juiced in order for a person with diabetes to see any benefits. For example, you may have noticed that we haven’t mentioned juicing any fruits as a way to improve diabetes.
There are several other options for colon cleanse, but they are applied only in rare situations and your doctor will inform you about them, if you have the indications. That is why you must consult with a specialist before taking the decision for colon cleanse.
