Life Changing Meal Plans
Stop counting calories! Five Hour Diabetic can do that for you. Each recipe is expertly calculated to have the correct amount of carbohydrates and calories from the most affordable and healthy foods. Quite often portion sizes are too large in recipes and restaurants. Eating too much of any food, even healthy food, will lead to weight gain.
This may surprise you. A handful of doctors have treated patients who have completely turned around their diabetes. Patients went beyond just controlling it. There were no miracle drugs involved, just hard work and know-how. There is hope for everyone to have improvements in your disease.
- Smart Nutrition. Our diabetic meal plan suggests the daily consumption of 1,500 calories (45g of carbohydrates) for women and 2,000 calories (60g of carbohydrates) for men. Medical research concludes that “a low-carbohydrate diet program had better participant retention and greater weight loss” than a low-fat diet.
- Save Money. Studies show that people who shop with a grocery list are less likely to splurge on items they do not need and overall make healthier choices. The structure from a meal plan also eliminates throwing away forgotten food. And every grocery list clearly marks food that is cheaper to buy online.
- Save Time. Coming up with new recipes and grocery lists every week takes hours of time. Knowing what is truly healthy takes years of experience. Your busy lifestyle could use a shortcut to healthy living. Leave the grocery list planning to us and you will never worry what to eat again!
Confusion About Your Diabetic Meal Plan
Now here comes the frightening part. Advice on diet and exercise is everywhere, but it is all conflicting. The professionals we expect to tell us how to eat healthy leave us confused and overwhelmed. What should a diabetic eat? What should a diabetic meal plan look like?
- Your government doesn’t know. The USDA has conflicting goals. This department has to both promote farming and determine our nation’s dietary guidelines. They refuse to say how much sugar we should eat per day. And ignore the endless research studies that directly links sugar to our nation’s diabetes epidemic. Sadly, the politicians make the “guidelines”, not expert doctors.
- Your American Diabetes Association doesn’t know. The group dedicated to preventing and curing diabetes cannot offer a straight answer on food. On one hand, they have said that Type 2 Diabetics do not need to eat any differently than someone without the disease. “People with diabetes have the same nutritional needs as anyone else.” While another guideline on their website says that “a variety of eating patterns are acceptable for the management of diabetes“. By “eating patterns” they mean different diets, such as, the Mediterranean Diet, the Low-Fat Diet, the Low-Carb Diet and the DASH Diet. So, which is it?
- Your doctor doesn’t know. Most doctors receive medical training that only deals with test procedures and pharmaceutical medications. Very few traditional medical schools offer advanced training on food, nor supplements. Most medical visits end with the doctor lecturing the patient to “eat healthy” without telling what healthy is. To no fault of our doctors, they are not trained to offer detailed advice on what to eat. Recent polls show that fewer than 25% of physicians believe they enough training to talk to patients about nutrition.
Pharmaceutical Companies’ Big Secret
You’ve heard a lot about the miracle drugs for Type 2 Diabetes. But here’s something you may not have known.
That day was horrible. Your doctor pulled out your lab results to review. You have Type 2 Diabetes. The doctor said your life could be shortened by 10 years. And your eye sight could disappear. You might even lose your feet. You will never forget that day.
Out came your doctor‘s prescription pad. He wrote you more prescriptions than ever. And then showed you how to prick yourself with your new daily injections of insulin. Then came the lecture. You need to lose weight to control your diabetes. But you already know this. You need to eat healthy, he tells you. But how? And what?
Your doctor schedules you a visit with their nutritionist. Surely this will help, you think. An hour of food counseling leaves you more confused than ever. She told you how and why your body needs this and that, but never what to eat. Nor what to buy. The simple act of eating is more confusing than ever. What should a diabetic eat? What should a diabetic meal plan look like?
It’s easy to fill prescriptions. And easy to take them. The pharmaceutical companies know this quite well. Buying the right food to truly eat healthy is much harder. Toxic food is everywhere, some of which is easy to spot while others are not. The pharmaceutical companies also know this quite well.
Pharmaceutical companies sold more than $30 billion worth of diabetes drugs in 2015. These drugs cost a fraction of their retail price to make. Pharmacies love this class of drugs. They have excellent marketing campaigns and are America’s top-selling medications. Every pharmacist will tell you diabetes drugs outsell everything else on their shelves by a long shot.
The ADA found that diabetics take an average of 4 kinds of medication. Some of these “miracle” drugs are not covered by insurance, nor Medicare. Many diabetics have burned through their savings just paying for these out-of-pocket expenses. It’s far easier for pharmaceutical companies to sell you their drugs for your disease than prevent it.
They certainly don’t want you to know their big secret. Pharmaceutical companies could lose billions of dollars in sales. But we can tell you:
No one has ever reverse around their Type 2 Diabetes by medications alone. Thousands of people have completely reversed their disease by changing what they eat and adding exercise.†
Question The Medical Guidelines
The low-carb, high-fat model is the reason so many diabetics have found success in reversing their disease. Our experts recommend consuming around 50 grams of carbohydrates per day total. Yet, many medical professionals give the advice of eating 40-70 grams of carbohydrates per meal and more with snacks. This is a lot of carbs to consume for someone without diabetes, much less someone with diabetes.
“We are essentially recommending that they eat exactly what’s causing their problem. Sound crazy? It really, really is. Because at its root, diabetes is a state of carbohydrate toxicity.” – Dr Sarah Hallberg
The video below dives into the interconnected problems with the ADA’s guidelines and diabetics’ true needs. Dr Hallberg is a leading professional on diabetes treatment that shines a light on our nation’s diabetes epidemic. Frighteningly, she mentions that “nowhere in the ADA guidelines is the goal of reversing Type 2 diabetes. This needs to be changed because Type 2 diabetes can be reversed in many if not most situations, especially if we start early.”
