At the moment I am about to embark on rehab. 

SUGAR rehab. 

To support a diabetic friend as well as level out any excess insulin in my own body, we are cutting down sugar dramatically– I’m talking 20 carbs a day for a few weeks. 

That actually would be doable easily diet wise if we both ate meat and eggs, but we don’t. 

So how do virtual vegans (we eat some cheese) do low carb to reset the body from sugar addiction? 

Well below are a list of foods and ideas to get you going. Whether you are trying to loose weight, cut sugar, or are a diabetic in need of getting your diet in order to help your body heal, know you aren’t going it alone! 

First get this: You have taste buds in your INTESTINES that ANY sweet flavor (I’m talking even stevia and agave) cause the intestines to produce insulin. If you are serious about taking a break from sugar, then that includes all tastes that are sweet for this reason. Also, I know eating small meals through out the day is helpful in weight loss land, but in sugar land every time you eat is a chance for your body to produce more insulin! Sticking to three square meals a day if you can is best for diabetics. All of this info is coming from a relatively new program where diet and simple supplements alone are being used to reverse Type 2 diabetes! It’s called THE DIABETES SOLUTION from Barton publishing, and I’m trying it with a client of mine! Wanna do it with us and get daily recipes?
