Tagline: “The Best Weight Loss Book Ever Written”

As an individual who has trudged through the trenches of diabetes, and emerged victorious on the other side, I can tell you with confidence that type 2 diabetes—commonly referred to as “sugar diabetes”—is indeed preventable, and in many instances, reversible. It’s a bitter pill to swallow, but our medical and pharmaceutical industries often prefer treating the symptoms over teaching patients how to truly combat the disease.

A close examination of the American Diabetes Association’s (ADA) erstwhile “diabetic diet” prescriptions reveals a baffling emphasis on grains and fruits—foods notorious for spiking glucose levels. This seems counterintuitive. Why would we encourage dietary habits that exacerbate a diabetic’s primary concern? Is it ignorance or a well-planned strategy? The jury is still out on that, but the presence of plentiful fruits and whole grains recommended by the FDA for diabetic patients leaves one pondering.

To better comprehend this, imagine devouring 2 cups of bran cereal with raisins, a seemingly nutritious meal. Now, consider that the glucose levels you experience from this is equivalent to the effects of 20 teaspoons of table sugar! Add a couple of slices of whole grain toast, a banana, a glass of juice, and a dollop of jelly, and you’re dispatching your kid off to school with a full cup of sugar coursing through their system. This alarming sugar load may well explain the increasing rates of obesity in our children.

Drawing a comparison from the animal kingdom, consider this: ever wondered how a grass-eating cow accumulates that thick layer of fat? The same grass consumed by cows is turned into flour for an array of human products or pushed as wholesome whole grain foods. We are engorging ourselves with ‘cow food’, which is steering us towards obesity, insulin resistance, and diabetes. On the other hand, carnivorous big cats like panthers, leopards, and tigers are lean and strong, owing to their protein-rich diet. Therefore, cutting down on cow food and high-sugar fruits, and leaning towards a protein-based diet, might be a wise approach for combating childhood obesity and maintaining balanced sugar levels.

I am often asked what fuels my zeal to help children fight obesity and diabetes. The answer is simple: “If you had the cure for cancer, would you keep it to yourself?” I believe I hold the key to mitigating sugar diabetes and obesity, and I refuse to keep it hidden. We owe our children a better future, one not marred by diseases and shorter lifespans than their parents.

Unraveling the truth about diabetes and weight loss isn’t complex. Over the years, we’ve been swamped with marketing gimmicks on weight loss and diabetes management. Even many of our medical professionals seem bewildered. One of my readers, a doctor from South Carolina, was so impressed with the “truth” of my book that he wrote:

“Dear Doug, I am proud to be able to contribute in a small way to your efforts to enlighten people as to the true cause of weight gain, diabetes, high blood pressure, high-cholesterol and that thing called “metabolic syndrome”. You should have been a doctor. In many ways what you’re doing now will make a bigger impact on the country’s health than anything a doctor could dream of accomplishing. I am so pleased to have found a book that coincides with everything I have been telling my patients for years. Now I can talk briefly with patients and hand them a book knowing that what is put forth in the text is everything I believe and transcends the stalled stale conversation of low carbs and exercise.
This is a seminal work that awakens us to what is all around us but yet invisible. Like water to a fish we have been unable to see what has been in front of us all the time. Water? What water I don’t see any water! Sugar? What sugar? I don’t see any sugar! Unfortunately our bodies do see all the sugar and respond with obesity and “metabolic syndrome”. This book is a must read for anyone interested in taking their health to the next level. Sincerely yours, Dr Paul Cump, D.O.”

The detrimental impact of sugar on our health is increasingly evident, yet its ubiquity makes it hard to avoid. That’s why I wrote the FAT TO SKINNY series—to simplify the process of identifying and replacing foods and beverages rich in sugars with healthier alternatives.

Refined sugar, fructose, and complex carbohydrates from grains and vegetables all contribute to the sugar content in our diet and, consequently, to obesity and metabolic syndrome. We, as a nation, are literally living on sugar, and it’s time we transitioned to a healthier fuel.

By learning how to spot sugar and replacing sugar-laden foods with low sugar substitutes, you can encourage your body to burn excess stored sugar, shed weight, and normalize blood glucose levels. The health benefits of such an approach are phenomenal.

FAT TO SKINNY is your fast and easy route to reversing Sugar Diabetes!
