In the world of medical research, one type of study is king: the randomized, controlled clinical trial. In fact, one of the most common ways mainstream medicine “experts” like to dismiss natural and holistic medicine is to say, “Show me the randomized clinical trials…”
And it’s true there are fewer of them for natural alternatives for a couple of reasons.
A.) Big Pharma can’t profit from them so they aren’t about to fund research on them.
B.) Bany natural interventions don’t lend themselves to this kind of trial.
But I’m pleased to announce that we now have a truly solid randomized controlled trial that we can use to fight fire with fire against the mainstream, so to speak. It proves something that we’ve known for decades, but they’ve been unwilling to admit…
It is possible for an obese, pre-diabetic adult to have complete remission — a full return to normal glucose tolerance — with diet alone. A high-protein diet, that is.
If this doesn’t put the final nail in the coffin of those ill-advised (government-backed) diets that only do more harm than good, I don’t know what will.
The study set out to compare the effects of the high-protein versus high-carbohydrate diets on a few metabolic parameters in obese people with diabetes. After six months, the results were almost unbelievable.
One hundred percent of those on the high protein diet had full remission of their pre-diabetes. Their glucose tolerance was right back to normal levels.
One hundred percent! Now that’s what I call an effective treatment protocol.
The folks on the high-carb diet, on the other hand, didn’t fare so well. Only a third of those people had remission.
The high-protein diet followers had other benefits too — significantly improved insulin sensitivity, cardiovascular risk factors, inflammatory cytokines, oxidative stress, and lean body mass percentage.
This might not shock you if you’ve been following me for a while, but I guarantee it will shake the ground under the feet of the mainstream medical establishment and the government agencies that back it. It goes against everything they’ve been touting for years. They have insisted that remission of pre-diabetes to normal was next to impossible. Maybe that’s because they’ve never had any success with their methods.
But I’ve known for ages that it’s possible. Because I’ve seen it, time and again. I have taken thousands of people off their prescription meds for diabetes and reversed pre-diabetes for over 25 years. How? By recommending a high-protein diet. First at the Atkins Center for five years, and then on my own through evolving versions of the low-carb diet.
How can one even make an argument for a diet high in carbohydrates (and hence sugars) anymore? The difference is staggeringly significant.
This message needs to be shouted from the rooftops. The rise of type 2 diabetes in the United States isn’t letting up. It has skyrocketed in the last decade. We now have almost 30 million people with diabetes, and 86 million with pre-diabetes according to the CDC National Diabetes Statistics Report of 2014.
Sadly, each year 7 to 10 percent of people with pre-diabetes will develop type 2 diabetes. That is, if they don’t get the right information.
Which is why I will keep on telling everyone who will listen about the benefits of dropping carbs and following my A-List Diet. Because high-protein, low-carb diets suppress hunger. They improve cardiovascular risk factors. They stabilizes insulin. They help with weight loss. And more and more…
I’ll leave you with this. The current study didn’t even add exercise to the mix, and it still had these stunning results. Imagine if you factored in movement?
I am telling you, the A-List Diet — with its emphasis on not only high protein but the right protein/amino acid balance for you — will keep you as healthy for as long as you stay with the program. (Just one more reason to pre-order your copy today!)
But in the meantime, I’ve already released a detailed, step-by-step guide that can help you turn the tide on pre-diabetes, and even reverse full-blown cases, starting today.
My Metabolic Repair Protocol outlines the same steps and advice I give my patients…without requiring you to make an appointment — or a trip — to my office here in Manhattan. In fact, you can follow my Metabolic Repair Protocol from the comfort of your own home. I encourage you to check it out and get started today by clicking here.
After all, when it comes to reversing diabetes and pre-diabetes, no clinical trial can match being living proof.
