1) WOW… look at those carbohydrate numbers, carbs represent almost 60% of my food, in grams. 2) If Saturated Fats make up a small percentage of EVEN a Standard American Diet, how can it be the root of all evil as so many claim that it is? A Full Listing of the ADA Diet and it’s components are included at the end of this post. I created the chart of carbs (below) based on the minimum number of servings and the maximum number of servings. Now let’s take a look at the carb totals of my low carb paleo meal plan, My goal is to be 30 grams of carbs or less. My largely fast food diet lead to more and more insulin resistance, a diabetes diagnosis and pancreatic failure with a trip to the hospital via an ambulance. The ADA Diabetes Diet is not significantly lower in carbohydrates and will cause blood sugar spikes. You can choose to THRIVE … or choose to live a life of downward health, leading to more pain and suffering. I can already hear my Doc’s sigh when I see her in a couple weeks after my next rounds of labs.
When I realized what was happening, I called up my old employer who had done the Atkins plan.
THEY don't want YOU better – they want you ADDICTED like a methhead to their drugs! My brother, who is also diabetic has adopted a low carb diet after learning of my success, and has also gotten off all of his meds. Overproduction of insulin is a long term killer for anyone, and the ADA diet CAUSES insulin overproduction.

My experience with expert diet advice came when I was sent to a dietitian after having a stent for CAD. Sandy Abernathy June 9, 2010 at 6:21 pm I found Steve through a friend of mine on line, Brian Keith Lawson.
Chad May 3, 2012 at 6:39 pm After a visit to Mayo in Rochester in March, I was put on a high carb diet. My goals when visiting were to figure out why i wasn’t losing weight and to develop a plan to get off all meds.
This is probably the best thing ever: one banana, one tbsp of almond butter, and a sprinkle of cinnamon wrapped in tinfoil and baked at 375 for 15 minutes.
Grrrrr. I contend the ADA Diet is NO better than the SAD (Standard American Diet) or at best ONLY marginally healthier and therefore harmful to the health of EVERYONE but especially detrimental to DIABETICS. Many eat the maximum and more because the ADA Diet maintains the addictions to grains and sugar. And you have to really dig to find ANYTHING negative about sugar drinks on the ADA website.
Your health will decline at a slower rate… but still ultimately leading to never damage, organ failure and amputations. I had side effects to the meds, to the point that I was no longer able to tell how I was really feeling.
The high carb diet recommended by the AHA made my triglycerides soar to about 300 and my cholesterol went over 200. Of course I was put on a statin, but I was lucky – I was unable to take it because of severe muscle pain. Since dropping carbs not only is my BG good, but my triglycerides are 80 and my other lipids look good too. I have since eliminated low-carb bread, and all grain products, as I was developing headaches, sinus issues, etc. I didn't even change my exercise plan of walking and being out in the sun in the summer doing lawn work or shooting sporting events. I slowly added back in things like peppers, tomatoes, cucumbers, anything I was growing in the garden at home.
