In my experience as a physician for more than 30 years, I have found that once patients make the decision to regain their health, they are eager to begin that process right away. I applaud such enthusiasm and, in order to help them get started, I developed the Transformation 20 Diabetes plan. It offers guidelines, meal plans and recipes for 20 days of Nutritarian-style eating to wipe out type 2 diabetes.
A Companion to The End of Diabetes
The Transformation 20 plan is meant to be a companion to my book The End of Diabetes. it cannot take its place. When patients discover that type 2 diabetes is completely reversible if they change their diet, they of course want to know right away what they should be eating every day. That is understandable. So while they are taking the time to read and absorb the science and details of the Nutritarian program in The End of Diabetes, they are provided with an initial plan of action in Transformation 20 Diabetes. With strict compliance, the plan is designed to reduce or eliminate the need for type 2 diabetes medication in under three weeks. This diet style is proven to be effective: in a study on people with type 2 diabetes who began following a Nutritarian diet, after one year 90 percent were able to eliminate all diabetes medications, and the mean HbA1c was 5.8, in the non-diabetic (normal) range.1
I hope it also offers those who read and follow the plan motivation to continue eating a Nutritarian diet, because this way of eating allows you to achieve better health, prolong your life and have more energy. It is the healthiest way for humans to eat.
Meal Plans for 20 Days and More
In Transformation 20 Diabetes, users are given 20 days of meals to follow, along with recipes and shopping lists. Also included are lists of the best foods to eat, the foods to avoid and the unlimited foods you are allowed to eat on the plan. It also offers a short primer on the benefits of the Nutritarian diet and more specifically, why it is so effective for reversing type 2 diabetes.
I have also included built-in support for those embarking on the plan, because I understand how changing your diet after decades of eating a certain way may seem difficult. Transformation 20 Diabetes offers an exclusive online community to connect with for inspiration, support or just to swap recipes. It is a terrific way to interact with those who share the same goals and who are going through the same process. In short, Transformation 20 Diabetes provides a great start for you to reverse your disease.
Take Charge of Your Health
You don’t have to live with type 2 diabetes. When you take charge and are committed to fostering long-term health, you can reverse this illness and avoid the complications that come with it. This approach has proven to work. All you need is the commitment to see it through. I hope Transformation 20 Diabetes is the beginning of a whole new lifestyle for those who read and follow its advice.
