Dr. Jay Wortman, MD, tells the story of how he cured his type 2 diabetes by avoiding starches and sugars. He stopped eating the foods that turn to sugar in the gut. 8 years later he is still free from the disease and needs no medication. He doesn’t eat bread, pasta, rice or any sugar.
As a physician, he thought that he would be immune to the diseases he treats in others. He knew that diabetes would shorten his life expectancy, was the leading cause of blindness and kidney failure and his chances of dying from a heart attack was much higher.
He decided from that point onward, he wouldn’t eat anything that would exacerbate his soaring blood sugar. So, he ate a low carbohydrate, high fat diet (LCHF).
“The first thing that happened was that my blood sugar normalized. This was almost instant and was followed by a dramatic and steady loss of weight. I started dropping about a pound a day. My other symptoms swiftly vanished, too. I started seeing clearly, the excessive urination and thirst disappeared, my energy level went up and I began to feel immensely better“.
