What I Would Eat if I had Diabetes?

Take Dr. Berg’s Body Type Quiz: http://bit.ly/BodyTypeQuiz

Dr. Eric Berg talks about Sugar and diabetes. Sugar increases insulin which lowers the sugar in the blood and puts it in storage as fat. A healthy diet should consist of fats and moderate amount of proteins. A diabetic diet should have high quantities of fat. Sugar stimulates hunger and you carve for more food. 40 % of all heart diseases are related to excess sugar. Keeping your blood sugar levels in control is a primary objective for a healthy body.

The current recommendations for carbohydrates based on the American Diabetes Associations is 45-60 grams of carbohydrates PER MEAL!!!!! not per day, per meal.

blood sugar problems can be improved if the right foods are eaten, but overall sugars and carbs must be reduced. Fats can be increased.

  1. Yes, he just said what I stated in my last comment. The business (greed, money, heartless medical industry) just angers me. Thank you. Would have been nice to provide type(s) of fat, quantity, timeframe(s), ie w/meals, before, etc, form of fat. Also, regarding protein, again, type(s), quantity, timeframe(s) and advice for athletes. Thank you for admitting, confessing the industry issue.

  2. Back around the six minute mark I believe you misspoke. You indicated 40 to 60 g of carbs in the recommended diabetic diet. But I think you intended to say 40 to 60% of this diet to be carbs. Just sayin. Love ya!

  3. And I didn't know all this. You are one smart doctor. Thanks so much for the information that going to help a lot.

  4. Hi dr. Berg am so confused my 2 years all boy diagnose type 1 diabetes last year on December. And at the beginning I tried not to feed him any carb not to give his insulin. But his doctor told me he should get at list 6g of carb in every meal and his insulin too.

  5. Sorry to be a negative but all research shows that sugar or glucose cannot convert to fat unless in extremely high quantities. Although it will store as a by product as while glucose and insulin is high in the bloodstream, any fat consumed during that period will be stored automatically.

  6. Dr Berg you are creating a lot of disinformation by not telling the whole story, the sugar in first converted into Glycogen, our essential store of energy ,and only if it is in EXCESS it gets converted into fat. If what you say were truth, vegetarians should be all obese because their diet is like 55-70% of the calories from carbs.But guess what? they are way more leaner than omnivores.

  7. Hello doctor. I plan to follow your Kato dietary recommendations. I like your points on vegetable consumption with this diet. However will your 20 to 50 grams of carbs in vegetables still spike my insulin? Also I want to purchase your books.

  8. You are 100 percent correct about how to fix diabetes. And even though I know that. staying off those carbs is so hard to do. Such a terrible addiction

  9. I switched from ketogenic diet to carnivore diet and finally, I no longer need a time released insulin injection at bed time. My waking BG levels are never over 95 now.

  10. Dr. What you said/taught us made perfect sense, but why not show what the kind of diet looks like? Show us what a meal would be with what your explaining. I'm a very visual and hands on kinda guy, who learns best by example. With this video you've given us half the knowledge you meant to give us. Finish it and thank you.

  11. Correction: The daily recommended carbohydrate intake guidelines are 225-325g per day or the equivalent to 40-65% of total calorie intake. INSANITY!
