Finding Simple Answers
How many times do you have to search the internet to find one article that is not misleading to you?
Well, I am still searching when it comes to the subject of sugar and food. No matter what the headline says or who wrote it, somehow, so-called experts and specialists all feel they must add foods with sugar to their so-called no sugar list.
Look, Einstien, no sugar means no sugar, and it does not require a Harvard education to figure that out. Changing the name by using the more than 60 variations for which this needless substance is called does not alter its effects. If you have diabetes, you can’t have sugar, duh! Yet time and time again, a no-sugar list includes low-sugar foods. That means they have sugar in them! That would be no different than slipping in ground-up steak on a vegetarian meal. Which part of no-sugar do these bean-heads not understand?
They must be getting paid by the big sugar industry because they sure don’t seem to care about the millions of Americans all over the country who cannot so much as look a sugar-cube.
Hey, people are dying here do you think you could grow up and see past what it is you “THINK” people who type in words NO SUGAR mean and what they mean?
In case you need more help, I will repeat in slow motion for you, N-O S-U-G-A-R.
Good grief, I am appalled at what I see and read on the internet and especially by top so-called healthy food websites claiming we somehow need certain sugars. BULLCRAP! That is a lie straight from the top of the food chain controlled by big money. Or, that somehow the sugars in fruits are excellent. Uh, no, they are not. Not when you need to eliminate it from your diet to keep your feet and your vision.
But We Need Sugar
You do not need sugar, and you do not need starches, and they know it!
We have been lied to over the last 50 years or so in this country in that processed foods were a better way to eat our meals. As it turns out, these foods created an epidemic of diabetes and health issues never seen before and have reached a level of insanity.
They may even be pumping sugar gas in the air just to keep us addicted. (I suppose I should not give them any ideas)
Just try going through your local grocery aisle and find ANYTHING that does not have some form of sugar, and see what you can find. I can promise you that you won’t find much, if anything. Remember, many of these big food manufactures do their best to disguise this ingredient by using one of the more than sixty variations for sugar. (I will list them at the bottom of this post)
It is time for these folks to get over their inability for transparency and honesty about this issue and quit playing around with sugar and its actual effects and purpose in our diets. Disguising the ingredients and confusing consumers should stop, and those doing it should be penalized instead of rewarded for their deeds.
Salt in Coke?
Did you know that the reason Coke has so much sugar in it is in part to hide the taste of the salt that they add? Wait, you don’t need salt in a soft drink, do you? Nope, but it makes you more thirsty, which is why these drinks do not quench your thirst, and you must buy the super-duper big fat gulp when you go to the store. Cha-ching.
And what makes it all worse is the pharmaceutical companies and doctors have been treating the symptoms of the epidemic and making the problem worse and not better.
The sugar is the symptom of diabetes and not diabetes itself, which is high insulin. You cannot cure this dietary disease with pills and more insulin. You may lower blood sugar, but the evidence is clear, diabetes continues to get worse. Their solution? Throw more medicines and eventually start insulin injections, which continue to treat the symptoms and not the cause.
Once the body cannot store any more sugar, it spills over into the bloodstream and causes everything from loss of limbs, kidney failure, heart attacks, strokes, and blindness, to name a few.
The way to cure this massive epidemic is not found at Walgreens or any other pharmacy. It is created through diet and can be cured in most cases in the same way. The number one way is through fasting. No, not starvation, intermittent fasting is the fastest and most proven way to reverse type two or type one diabetes, but because there is no money in it, you will likely not hear it on the nightly news or from the local doctor’s office.
We are still being told to eat small meals throughout the day, and that is best. No, it is not. Never before in history did civilizations eat like this, and never previously in the past have we seen what we see now with the health problems. Americans spend less on food than any other nation, but we spend far more on health care.
The Politicians Cannot Solve This
The solution to health care is not in Washington, D.C.; instead, it is in our choices and education. We cannot merely go with the flow of the media, the advertising, and the political correctness anymore. How many times and on how many essential subjects do we have to be misled and lied to about before we wake up and start finding the right information for ourselves and families.
It is there, it always is, but you have to shut off the mainstream garbage and start doing some research. If there is no data or evidence of something, then move on until you find it but never just accept what everyone else says or is doing as the best way to go. Your life may depend on it.
Now, this is a life-threatening issue, and I am not a doctor, so you do not have to take my word for it. However, I have developed a severe case of diabetes myself with no health insurance, swollen feet, cramping, and blurred vision I take this very seriously. I take personal responsibility for my condition, but that doesn’t mean that those who have misled and lied to the public for decades should not be called out and put out of business for the damage and harm they have done and continue to do to society.
I know for a fact people taking pills and insulin are not getting rid of the disease, which I also know for a fact is a curable disease in most cases if the cause is treated instead of the symptoms. I am betting my health and life on this information I have learned, and I pray that you will take the time to listen to two very educated and wise physicians from whom I have learned a great deal.
Watch These Videos And Get Educated
You can find them both on YouTube, and I hope if you or someone you know is suffering from type 1 or type 2 diabetes, that you will take the time to listen to what these two have to say and share it with anyone who may benefit from it.
I did not write this article to rank in SEO or to sell anything to anyone. I simply want to help anyone who is suffering needlessly to find the right cure and get their life back.

What We Know From Other Areas Is True With Insulin
As we all know, our bodies tend to build up resistance to most everything. If you take pain medications, over time, they have less effect, and you must make more or find a more robust solution, which usually means a stronger drug.
Insulin is the same way. The more we take in, the more resistant our bodies become to it, and so the solution has been to do what? Increase the amount of insulin. Which makes it even worse and so the cycle continues.
And because insulin, not sugar, is the real disease, we must quit accepting that the status quo is correct. No one who is on insulin is getting cured by taking in insulin. Granted, it may be necessary for many initially. Still, with fasting, there is hope for a real recovery because fasting lowers the insulin levels and, if practiced, over time, can cure diabetes.
That doesn’t mean you can eat Twinkies and things high in carbs and sugar. You cannot eat large amounts of fruit that contain sugar, and you need to avoid bread and baked goods in general. Things I always believed that we’re healthy and do have nutritional value are often too high in carbs and sugar, and for the person with diabetes, these are a no-no.
It sure makes shopping a pure nightmare as I can walk up and down the aisle and seldom find a single item with no sugar in it. Very say indeed!
Don’t Give Up!
One thing is for sure. We must not get discouraged or think there is no hope for us once we are diagnosed with this terrible disease. The risks are too significant if we ignore it, and at the same time, it can be overwhelming for anyone who has to watch every bite they eat as though their life depended on it.
Find someone who you can share ideas and stay educated on the subject. The big food manufactures have already sold out to the sugar-gods, so do not count on them to start changing what they offer anytime soon.
Make sure and talk to your doctor, and if he or she has a closed mind and just wants to throw medicine at you and not listen, find a new doctor.
We all must take our health into our own hands now more than ever. Greed is everywhere, and sugar is too.
God bless you, and I pray for a full recovery for everyone who reads this!
