Default Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead

Have any of you seen this movie and if so have any of you tried this type of fasting? Did it adversely affect BGL? If this can shed some weight and it gets your BGL down is it worth it? I've been thinking about a juice fast for ten days and just curious--I know ya'll tell it like it is!!

I haven't seen the movie, but from what I understand, the star was abt. 100 pounds overweight and dieted by consuming nothing but juice for 60 days straight. I am going to guess that he wasn't diabetic, although I could be wrong? If a diabetic did this (I never would, personally), you would have to use all low starch vegetables, and would only be able to use a select one or two fruits. I don't know how it would lower BG, unless all of the ingredients used are low starch. You'd still have to watch carbs, even though it's in the form of juice.

Thanks Mary-I currently don't eat starchy veggies or much fruit. BG won't allow it but I do feel as if losing weight might allow me to have lower BGLs. I don't know if he was diabetic either but he was pretty large when he started. The other guy HAD to have been, I mean he weighed 450lbs!

I actually just read up on it a bit. He was not diabetic, although he was using metformin to try and lose weight (it didn't work, in his case). I think it's a dangerous game, and way too dangerous for me or most that I know. Lose weight, lower BG numbers, but doing it by consuming foods that would raise your BG is like playing with fire, in my opinion.

Joe Cross is an Aussie. He had/has the auto-immune disease Urticaria (hives).

I watched the movie with interest because I also suffer from Auto-Immune Urticaria and Angioedema. Needless to say I bought a juicer and started replacing meals with fresh juice. Unfortunately I was drinking lots of juices made from carrots and beets. I did start to feel a little better after a few weeks but it wasn't the answer for me. Not long after my juice diet I was dx with diabetes.

The LCHF woe has made all the difference.

I still have my juicer and occasionally I'll make a fresh celery, ginger and cucumber juice.

PS I've found eating a low-histamine diet and taking anti-histamines every day keeps my urticaria and angioedema under control. Yes folks I'm on TWO diets. *sigh*.
