What you want to do is pay attention to nutrition labels on food that you buy:



Pay attention where it shows "Total Carbohydrates", and how many grams there are in a single serving.

Your doctor or dietician will tell you how many carbs you are allowed to consume per meal. For example, I'm allowed 60 grams per meal total. But that's based upon my age, weight, etc.

Completely trying to avoid all carbs (IE like the Atkins diet) is not a good thing for long term and can hurt you. If you are on meds for diabetes, you can end up having sugar crashes (where your blood sugar suddenly drops below normal, and those are NOT fun! You get the shakes, heart palpatations, very dizzy, sweating and a ravenous hunger like you would not believe.......and if ignored will be the last thing you feel as you pass out and go into a diabetic coma) because your meds are helping your body control your sugars. If you starve your body of sugars (IE no carbs at all), you can end up with frequent sugar crashes, and that's bad.

You need to get to the doctor ASAP. Do not try to control this yourself right now, without knowing what you are doing or what is wrong with your body. You need to know what is going on with your body and what it is you can do. Your doctor and a dietician can help with that.

Trying instead to diagnose yourself and treating yourself without knowing what is really going on, is a BAD thing to do. You could make your condition much worse, or cause another condition to develop.

So get to the doctor as soon as possible. You don't have to avoid all carbs, just try to keep how much your are consuming per meal down, drink plenty of water, and avoid all products that use sugar (sodas, candy of any kind, cakes, cookies, pies, donuts, etc), until you do get to the doctor.

A good thing to do before believing or getting involved in any of these highly questionable diets or what may simply be a money making scam by people who could care less about you, other than you bank account; is to do some homework.

A good place to start would be this article from the Science Based Medicine Organization about this same scientific "woo".


The reason I label this film a “bait and switch” is because it takes knowledge that SBM has already developed, namely that it is possible to reverse type II diabetes with weight loss and exercise (indeed, these are almost always the first interventions suggested when a diagnosis of type II diabetes is made), which require a much healthier diet to achieve, and then makes the implication that reversal of type II diabetes can best be accomplished by Dr. Cousens’ raw food vegan diet. The Trojan horse is the co-opting by alt-med practitioners of the idea that diet can have a significant impact on controlling type II diabetes. Within the Trojan horse of diet lies the woo of raw “live” foodism, complete with the idea that cooked food is somehow “dead,” that “living food” is living because it contains enzymes that are destroyed by cooking, and various other mystical and pseudoscientific concepts about raw food, such as that it somehow contains a mystical “life energy” that is destroyed by cooking. True, in the movie, although Dr. Cousens does talk some about the concept of “living food” and their belief that cooking somehow kills food, neither he nor the other “experts” interviewed dwells on this concept, which is surprising, given that Dr. Cousens directed the movie. Instead, the documentary focuses on interpersonal relationships and, in particular, three of the original six who had such difficulty sticking to the plan.


That article goes into some pretty good detail about "Simply Raw" and its fallacies.

These people know that many people are susceptible to this kind of marketing and play it for all its worth to line their pockets in my opinion. Beware.
