Steve also says using very strong words in a recent post:
Do not follow the ADA WAY! ADA = American Diabetes Association
DO NOT LISTEN TO ADA MINION!
Do NOT follow the ADA diabetes diet! Their high carb meal plan is good for only a couple of things...they are:
1) Selling Drugs - eating the ADA Way will cause you to take an ever increasing amount of drugs and insulin.
2) Selling Diabetes "Services" - Eating the ADA Way will require you to see a Certified Diabetes Educator (CDE)... for the rest of YOUR LIFE!
3) Selling Grains and Cereals for Monsanto, General Mills and Kellogg's
What about ME you ask?I do NOT take drugs! Cover via Amazon
I do NOT use a CDE
I do NOT EAT GRAINS NOR CEREALS!
Oops, should clarify, below are my words:
Don't mourn if you do have to take Metformin. It's somewhat natural - i.e. made from the lilac plant, I believe, and studies have shown that it protects against both heart disease and cancer. It is also great for folks with PCOS and it helps stabilize hormones. It seems to prevent lung cancer in smokers. It may help people who have difficulty losing weight or have a problem in that their weight goes up from time to time; Metformin reduces this tendency.
