    100 year old diabetic cook book still hits the spot

    Post by Eddie on Mon Sep 29 2014, 21:46

    Diabetes is now a run away train. It’s out of control, around the world hundreds of millions of people have joined the club, no one wants to join. The epidemics of type two diabetes and it’s often linked obesity are going to get far worse the experts tell us. Big pharma knows this, big pharma can hear the big cash register ringing. My opinion on big pharma and many of it’s drugs is well known. Many have proved to be useless and others banned for killing people. There was a time when no drugs were available for the control of diabetes, and many type two diabetics lived long and active lives. Many feel Dr. Atkins was the start of the lowcarb diet, but lowcarbing for improved health goes back to the days of William Banting.

    The link below will take you to a free of charge read on line digitalized book, on the best diet for diabetics before big pharma loaded the dice, and diet and exercise kept people healthy and in control of their diabetes. I urge you to take a look. I have left the book open at pages 12 and 13, foods of great value and foods to avoid. Many will not be surprised to see, nothing has changed in almost a hundred years, in the best way to control diabetes. Diet and exercise and nil/minimal medication.

    Check this link out, a fantastic read and well worth your time.

    Diabetic Cookery Recipes And Menus by Rebecca W Oppenheimer printed 1917

    Link to the book here http://archive.org/stream/diabeticcookeryr00oppeiala#page/12/mode/2up

    That's so spooky to see so much of what we're promoting today being advocated a century ago,obviously there's a few things I'd disagree with under the 'Use Occasionally and moderately' on fruits and vegetables on page 11 I think it was such as Celeriac,Mushrooms and Lemons as I find them to be low carb heroes but so much makes sense from the olden times before big business got it's finger in the pie.

    So much for progress ! They were not far off the mark all those years ago, even down to numbers of carbs/calories etc.

    Seriously tempted to put this up on 'the other side' and see how long it lasts, given that our every move is probably closely watched.

    No surprise who is showing up from the low carb anti section. I can report good news. Phoenix and Noblehead are offering to pay for unlimited test strips, an insulin pump and endo fees for all type two non insulin users who follow her very high carb diet as promoted by Hope Warshaw, it just goes to show, Phoenix has a heart after all. lol!

    Maybe the LC detractors would prefer we heeded the advice presented by HCP's on the DESMOND course for the newly diagnosed Type 2 diabetics Rolling Eyes

    Whenever an article backing low carb goes on the big forum, it is as predictable as night follows day the low carb antis will turn up and who they will be. How anyone can believe a diet based on starch and junk food covered by medication, is the way to go is beyond me.

    The main mouth piece on the thread lives on junk from pot noodles to Peperami. A month or so ago he told us his cholesterol numbers had gone through the roof since eating carbs and his doctor had put him back on statins. He has told us metformin will not alone keep his BG safe, and is on Byetta or Januvia (I can't be bothered to check) both under the spotlight for causing cancer and other grim side effects, and both have minimal BG lowering qualities.

    The positive side in all this, is only one of the low carb clique or a complete lunatic would follow Duggies diet and most straight thinkers can see he is full of shit. Am I right or am I right ?

    I honestly believe he craves attention and likes being in the limelight. Quick to criticise the majority whilst singling out vague, questionable examples to back his own ideas. My opinion still is to remove the fuel from his threads and they soon burn out. A thread where nobody bothers to post speaks volumes.

    And just think, he is the number one low carb high fat anti over there these days, just shows you how desperate the antis have become. Even Sid had checked out and I miss him, say what you like but he was one hell of a laugh.

    Wise words Rod. If anyone posts a valid point it gets ignored. Don't feed him, he is a lonely guy who thrives off stirring the pot.
