THE DANGERS OF LOW-FAT, HIGH CARBOHYDRATE DIETS
DIABETES, OBESITY  

Obese people tend to go on
to suffer type II Non Insulin Dependent Diabetes Mellitus (NIDDM) and diabetics are more prone to heart disease. For this reason patients with NIDDM are counselled to eat
a 'healthy' low-fat, high-carb diet. But: the best diet for diabetics to avoid heart disease is high-fat, low-carbohydrate because:
"A very high-fat, low-carbohydrate diet has been shown to have astounding effects in helping type 2 diabetics lose weight and improve their blood lipid profiles. The thing many diabetics coming into the office don't realize is that other forms of carbohydrates will increase their sugar, too. Dieticians will point toward complex carbohydrates ... oatmeal and whole wheat bread, but we have to deliver the message that these are carbohydrates that increase blood sugars, too."
81st Annual Meeting of The
Endocrine Society, 12-15
June 1999, San Diego, California


In general, study has demonstrated that multiple risk factors for coronary heart disease are worsened for diabetics who consume the low-fat, high-carbohydrate diets so often recommended to reduce these risks"
Diabetes Care 1995; 18: 10-16
"it seems prudent to avoid
the use of low-fat, high-carbohydrate diets containing moderate amounts of sucrose in patients with non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus."
American Journal of Medicine
1987; 82:213-220

Insulin does not treat the diabetes, but only lessens its symptom
Dr. Jan Kwasniewski
No hospital in the world is running a program to treat
the cause of diabetes. That disease is considered incurable. No facts, not even the most spectacular and apparent, are able to make modern medicine change its view. I cured my first type 1 diabetic 30 years ago.
Dr. Jan Kwasniewski

The best diet for weight loss is high-fat, low-carbohydrate because: Average daily losses on high carbohydrate/low fat diet - 49g (like modern slimming diets) Average daily losses on low carbohydrate/high fat diet - 205g (like recommended)
"The most striking feature of the table is that the losses appear to be inversely proportionate to the carbohydrate content of the food. Where the carbohydrate intake is low the rate of loss in weight is greater and conversely."
Quarterly Journal of Medicine
1932; 1: 331-52


"Reduced fat and calorie intake and frequent use of low-calorie food products have been associated with a paradoxical increase in the prevalence of obesity."
American Journal of Medicine
1997; 102: 259-64.

"The failure of fat people to achieve a goal they seem to want and to want almost above all else must now be admitted for what it is: a failure not of those people but of the methods of treatment that are used."
British Medical Journal
1994; 309: 655-6.

"Starvation" diets and chemical concoctions that inflate the stomach (and so also a "starvation" technique, just with a fake full felling in the stomach) are harmful to your health. These methods starve down not only spare fat but also all tissues and organs. People who survived second world war concentration and labour camps were truly skinny and came out of the camps in ruined health, sometimes for their whole lives.
Dr. Jan Kwasniewski
Weight gain is caused by an excess of carbohydrates in what is eaten. They are converted into fat and stored in fat tissue. Fat in a human body never comes directly from the fat that is in what is eaten.
