Really enjoyed this article and found it interesting. I was diagnosed with diabetic cleanse in 2013 and went on a “I’m scared to put anything in my mouth” trip, as I’m sure many others alike did the same thing. Then of course tons of research followed. Then of course, slowly but surely I’m back at eating less healthy and not healthy at all, at times. Your article has sparked the “healthy, let’s turn this crap around” flame again, and for this I thank you. Just think, all I Googled was “is it ok for diabetics to have carrot juice?” so I could respond to a comment in a Facebook group wisely. Your article came up, really glad it did.
One easy way to improve glycemic index is to simply replace starches and sugars with whole grains and legumes (dried peas, beans, and lentils). However, there are many factors that affect the glycemic index of foods, and maintaining a diet with low glycemic load is not straightforward.
A lot of diet programs out there promote extremely restricted eating. Not 21DSD. That’s because a detox program program works by getting your body to naturally cleansing itself of substances that create negative health effects. That’s why this program works!
Yes，healthy eating is one of the best ways to manage type 2 diabetes. Because this type of diabetes is strongly linked to excess weight, cutting calories and following the right kind of diabetes diet will go a long way toward improving your health.
Omega-6 polyunsaturated fatty acids (corn, safflower, sunflower, and soybean oils and nuts and seeds) are the second choice and should account for 5 – 10% of total calories as part of total fat intake.
Unfortunately, a lot of diabetes drugs don’t actually work, or work with limited success and a lot of potential side effects. Science has shown that—in terms of diabetic management—these drugs are more dangerous than anything.
I am wondering if you had any trouble with plateauing after a few weeks. I have been on this for a month. Lost 7 pounds and would like 7 more off. But I have plateaued and cannot seem to lose any more. Suggestions?
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):
Extra virgin olive oil, barberry: stimulate the liver, the gallbladder and the production of bile. Extra virgin olive oil specifically stimulates the gallbladder and bile duct to contract and expel its contents.
The results were astounding—every single group that added cinnamon to their diet saw a dramatic decrease in glucose and LDL cholesterol levels. Cinnamon eaters saw up to a 29% reduction in numbers, while the placebo group didn’t even move the needle. 
Refined sugar: Refined sugar rapidly spikes blood glucose, and soda, fruit juice and other sugary beverages are the worst culprits. These forms of sugar enter the bloodstream rapidly and can cause extreme elevations in blood glucose. (7) Even though natural sweeteners like raw honey and maple syrup are better options, they can still affect blood sugar levels, so only use these foods on occasion. Your best option is to switch to stevia, a natural sweetener that won’t have as much of an impact.

The American Diabetes Association recommends that patients aim for a small but consistent weight loss of ½ – 1 pound per week. Most patients should follow a diet that supplies at least 1,000 – 1,200 kcal/day for women and 1,200 – 1,600 kcal/day for men.
Another study showed that supplementation of Aloe vera L. gel powder along with nutrition counseling significantly reduced blood glucose levels and blood pressure along with an improvement in lipid profile in the non-insulin dependent diabetics. (8)

In most cases, this is due to the body’s toxic load preventing metabolism and energy production. In addition, as a self-protective mechanism, fat cells hold on to the toxins to prevent them from being released into your bloodstream. As a result, your body cannot metabolize and burn fat, making it almost impossible to lose weight, especially the fat in the belly area.
Coconut is not really a cleansing food per se. It helps to slow down digestion, which can be a good thing. For someone who needs to slow down cleansing it can be a good addition. As mentioned above, it is being used for the non-cleansing options that were described.
Chelation Therapy: is one of the best ways to detox and remove heavy metals from your cells and tissues. But, it can also be dangerous, so many doctors don’t recommend it unless you have moderate to severe heavy metal poisoning. Chelation therapy uses compounds called chelators that form strong bonds with heavy metals, leaving them unable to further poison your body. Chelators mobilize the toxins, and you can either pass them normally or bind them up with adsorbents like activated charcoal. Chelation therapy is very effective for removing lead, mercury, aluminum, arsenic, iron, and copper.
Based on Stanley Burroughs’ 1940s book “The Master Cleanser,” the Master Cleanse is both a detox plan and a weight loss diet. The cleanse is a modified fast that requires you to drink a lemonade-like beverage made from purified water, organic lemons, cayenne pepper and grade B maple syrup. Although Burroughs dedicated a section in “The Master Cleanser” specifically to diabetics, his advice is unsafe by current medical standards.
Calorie restriction has been the cornerstone of obesity treatment. Restricting calories in such cases also appears to have beneficial effects on cholesterol levels, including reducing LDL and triglycerides and increasing HDL levels.
Fiber – You’ll definitely want to go high fiber, as well, with at least 30 – 40 grams of fiber per day. Resistant starches (11), in particular, are especially powerful when it comes to detoxifying the body.

Heart-healthy fish. Eat heart-healthy fish at least twice a week. Fish can be a good alternative to high-fat meats. For example, cod, tuna and halibut have less total fat, saturated fat and cholesterol than do meat and poultry. Fish such as salmon, mackerel, tuna, sardines and bluefish are rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which promote heart health by lowering blood fats called triglycerides.
Type 1 Diabetics (the ones that have to inject insulin) should not do the Cleanse. Instead, they should try eating from the Cleanse Diet for a few weeks with the supervision of their Health Care Practitioner.
That’s why I created The Blood Sugar Solution 10-Day Detox Diet. Early last year, I invited more than 600 people to try it out, and they lost more than 4,000 pounds in 10 days. But more important, they did it painlessly by enjoying powerful addiction-reversing foods that rewired and reset their brains and bodies. No cravings, no bland or boring diet food, no deprivation. Just abundance and delight. And at the end of the 10 days, they got their bodies and their minds back, and learned a new way to eat and live that will last a lifetime — a long one!
There’s nothing more comforting than a warm bowl of oatmeal in the morning. Plus, it’s a more nutritious option than many other starchy breakfast foods, such as sugary cereals, sweet rolls, and bagels, according to the American Diabetes Association (ADA). Also, because of its fiber content (2 grams fiber in a 1/2-cup serving of cooked oatmeal), it gives you more staying power than low-fiber options.
Aerobic exercise is activity that makes your heart beat faster and makes you breathe harder. You should aim for doing aerobic exercise for 30 minutes a day most days of the week. You do not have to do all the activity at one time. You can split up these minutes into a few times throughout the day.
Eat organic whenever you can. When you can, avoid the Dirty Dozen, or the most contaminated fruits and vegetables: apples, strawberries, grapes, celery, peaches, sweet bell peppers, imported nectarines, cucumbers, potatoes, cherry tomatoes, hot peppers, summer squash and leafy greens, including spinach, kale and collard greens.
In a study carried out at Newcastle University, the research team discovered that Type 2 diabetes can be reversed by an extreme low calorie diet alone. In an early stage clinical trial of 11 people, all 11 reversed their diabetes by drastically cutting their food intake to just 600 calories a day for two months. And three months later, seven remained free of diabetes. Interestingly after just one week, the Newcastle University team found that in all 11 people their pre-breakfast blood sugar levels had returned to normal.

Generally, manufacturers of herbal remedies and dietary supplements do not need FDA approval to sell their products. Just like a drug, herbs and supplements can affect the body’s chemistry, and therefore have the potential to produce side effects that may be harmful. There have been a number of reported cases of serious and even lethal side effects from herbal products. Patients should always check with their doctors before using any herbal remedies or dietary supplements.
