A prime example of type 2 diabetes being reversed i.e. cured with a low fat, whole foods plant based diet! There's heaps of Evidence in the medical literature to support this diet in reversing T2D. If only all doctors were trained in nutrition/ lifestyle medicine during their medical degree they would realise how powerful food is. Food is medicine! Drop

"I was just a cheeseburger and fries away from 300 pounds, and I knew I had to do something about it."
Only 3 months after his diabetes diagnosis, Bob had lost 52 pounds, reduced his fasting blood glucose by 200 mg/dL, dropped his cholesterol by almost 40%, and lowered his A1c by 3.5%.
So, how did he do it?
“I have been eating a whole-foods, plant-based, no-oil diet since November of 2016. While I don’t consider myself a vegan, I choose to stay primarily plant-based. I eat a lot of fruit, I do not count my carbohydrate intake, I watch my fat intake and I feel like a million bucks. This lifestyle saved my life.” 🥬🥕🌶
