The Key to Reversing Diabetes

The key to reversing diabetes may be more simple than you think.

Though the mainstream media may tell you that there is no cure for diabetes, our experts at Hallelujah Acres believe otherwise. In fact, they have seen the power of the Genesis 1:29 diet in reversing the disease first hand. The number of individuals with type 2 diabetes who have adopted the Hallelujah Diet and soon after reduced, or completely rid of, their insulin medication continues to grow. When provided with the whole, plant-based fuel that God intended for the body, it becomes miraculously self-healing.

So what is the key to reversing diabetes?

Insulin Resistance
Reversing diabetes first requires an understanding of insulin resistance. As the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases explained, once the body begins digesting food, insulin is released into the blood. Here, it plays a key role in transforming that digested food into glucose, which can then fuel the body with energy. Working closely with muscle, fat and liver cells, insulin helps to lower blood glucose levels, store extra glucose and reduce the production of excess glucose. In individuals with normal insulin sensitivity, these processes ensure the maintenance of healthy insulin and blood glucose levels, according to the source.

The key to reversing diabetes is removing fat from the diet.The key to reversing diabetes is removing fat from the diet.

For those with insulin resistance however, these systems cannot properly function without more insulin and as such, the beta cells of the pancreas work to produce more. In some instances, this is enough and the body can continue to maintain normal blood glucose levels, noted the NIDDKD. In most cases though, the beta cells eventually reach a point where they cannot keep up with the production of insulin needed. This is when too much glucose builds up in the bloodstream. Subsequently, insulin resistance leads to prediabetes and Type 2 diabetes.

Intramyocellular Lipids
So what causes insulin resistance in the first place? As Dr. Michael Greger of explained, when the muscle cells become resistant to the effect of insulin, there is something blocking the process. What most people don’t know is it is the fat inside the muscles of the body that are doing this blocking, called intramyocellular lipid. When this fat in the muscles builds up, it can block the signaling pathway process and regardless of the amount of insulin in the blood, it causes blood sugar levels to increase.

“The fat in people’s diet is what causes insulin resistance.”

According to Greger, both prediabetes and Type 2 diabetes are caused by growth of intramyocellular lipids. So although the mainstream media and the food industry will lead you to believe that carbohydrates and sugar are the main culprits, it’s really fats. As the fat content in one’s diet goes up, blood sugar spikes, he explained.

“It is the fat in people’s diet that is causing the trouble of insulin resistance, which leads to Type 2 diabetes,” confirmed Research Director of the Hallelujah Diet, Dr. Michael Donaldson. “If you take the fat out, the body responds to carbohydrates much better. So, the key to reversing diabetes is not a low carb diet, but rather a low fat diet.”

Why the Plant-Based Diet Works
When it comes to living with diabetes, the fat from animal sources is the key issue causing a resistance to insulin, according to Hallelujah Acres’ experts. Rather than taking medications that pump more insulin into their bodies, people can take a more natural approach and remove these animal products from their diet. By adopting a whole, primarily raw and plant-based diet, you can effectively revive insulin sensitivity once again.

“Without the fat, derived from these animal source foods, it is practically impossible for a person to develop type 2 diabetes,” explained members of our Hallelujah Acres research team. “And on the flip side, if a person wants to get rid of diabetes, the very first step is to remove fat containing animal source foods from their diet.”

Once the fat is taken out of the diet and thus, out of the blood stream, the insulin is no longer prevented from reaching the cell. Consequently, a person is no longer insulin resistant. In addition to improving insulin sensitivity, a raw diet will help to strengthen your immune system and boost your energy. In conjunction with the Hallelujah Diet, the Hallelujah Diet Diabetes Support System provides those with diabetes additional supplements to help return the body to its normal insulin and blood glucose levels.

    What about fats in the diet like avacado, walnut oil, olive oil, nuts and seeds, almond milk/yogurts?… di these also cause insulin resistance in pre diabetics?….

      Hi Pamela!
      Dr. Michael Donaldson who states below that “the key to reversing diabetes is not a low carb diet, but rather a low fat diet.” is a HUGE advocate of nuts and seeds and avocadoes and they have plenty of fat! There are 2 awesome webinars he did on the power of nuts and seeds in the diet. Here are those links

      Hallelujah Diet advocates and sells Udo’s oil and flax oil. They sell a product called B-Flax-D which contains ground flax seeds. Everyone needs a certain amount of healthy fats.
      With everything I have read, excess carbs turn into fat. Hallelujah Diet recommends to only eat a maximum of 15% of sweet fruit in the daily diet …why? Because sweet fruits, like mango, pineapple, peaches, etc. are high in carbs and/or sugar and people can go overboard with too many carbs that turn into sugar! We can go overboard on carbs. Our bodies are designed to consume carbs, fats, and protein. Balance is important.
      Keeping our cells healthy and vibrant involves many aspects. Too much fat and eating poor quality fat is one area that can play a large part in creating poor sickly cells. If you like, Click here for a great overview of the Hallelujah Diet. If you have never read the book, “God’s Way to Ultimate Health”. It is very inspirational. I have worked with Hallelujah Diet a long time and have heard countless positive testimonials. We really do have a miraculous body.

  3. Hi Pamela,
    It is the fat in the body that we need to get rid of. And a lower-fat diet, based on plants in the healthiest, best way to reduce excess fat in the body.

    However, that does not mean you can’t eat avocados, nuts and seeds. Indeed, 1-2 ounces of nuts and seeds a day is a very beneficial part of a plant-based diet. These fats are very nutritious and come from whole foods. Cut out the other sources of excess calories before removing avocados, nuts and seeds from your diet.

    Further research has shown fatty liver and pancreatic fat also plays a role in diabetes, along with fat in our muscles. Losing excess weight, like 30 pounds or more, and keeping it off can help reverse diabetes–both fasting glucose levels normalized and normal response to a carbohydrate load. You have to remove the fat from the liver and pancreas to get both effects. It isn’t just being fat, but being too fat for who you are. Watch out for a webinar on this info in the coming months.

      I look forward to the webinar. I appreciate you so much, Michael, because you always find the latest information. I am so very blessed to know about the fasting mimicking diet! Wow, if we all would do that, we would probably see tremendous results in our health.
      I was reading a book by Dr. Russell Blaylock, MD. He says that “between 10 and 20 percent of Americans have non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, where fat accumulates in the liver but alcohol is not a contributing factor.” That is a lot of people! He states that high fructose corn syrup is the leading cause of liver disease. He also says that omega-6 oils should be avoided because they provoke inflammation. These would be the corn, safflower, sunflower, peanut and soybean oils.

  4. I recently had blood work done 11/2020, and was told that my AIC levels were slightly elevated and that this puts me as being prediabetic. My previous tests have all been good. I have been a vegan since 2012. The only thing I can think of is that I have a smoothie for my first meal at 12 noon: 1 frozen banana, 1/2 cup of frozen blueberries, Hemp Protein Powder, 1 tsp barley max, unsweetened almond milk and 1 tbp of special dark coco powder. My evening meal is a large salad with cucumbers, radishes, multicolor peppers, romaine lettuce, shredded carrots, walnuts. Sometimes a veggie burger cut up in my salad. My dressing is homemade hummus from chicpeas, gacumole and coconut aminos. I stopped eating organic blue tortilla chips and replaced that with pistachios when I want a snack. I’m thinking it’s the sugar in the smoothies that may be causing my AIC levels to elevate slightly. Since the blood results I started eating my salad at noon and will have a smoothie later in the day. Should I eliminate the smoothies all together? I do not eat cooked foods and only have a taste for salads and smoothies.

      Hi Valencia. It is a little upsetting when the A1C is in the prediabetic range and we think we are eating so well. People can go vegan and think they are doing great, when they may be making mistakes. It is wise to examine our diet and see if we have gone astray. Many times I write down everything I eat. One of the best ways to see if we are off base is our weight. Are you overweight? Your diet looks like you would be very thin. Have you lost weight since going vegan?
      Did you realize that a cup of blueberries has only around 13 net grams of carbs. Since you are only eating ½ cup, then you are only getting about 7 net grams of carbs from the berries. That is not much. A cup of chickpeas (for hummus) has 32 net grams of carbs? Carbs break down into sugar. Beans have plenty of carbs. You may not be eating much hummus at all??
      Some folks can’t tolerate carrot juice. Are you drinking any juices or just water? You seem very disciplined, I know you want to get to the bottom of this.

    Hello, my husband is diabetic and even with all the medications he is being given from his doctor, his blood sugar continues to rise and is now over 200 just about every morning. He was watching tv ad on a supplement called “Sugar Balance” and wanted to purchase the almost $300 deal of 6 bottles. He uses the Beetmax and Barleymax. Could you help us know how to get his blood sugar down without more medications?
