In this video: a practical approach on how to reverse
diabetes and stop kidney disease – in 3 months – with the easiest diet in the
Diabetes is the number 1 cause of kidney disease –
treating it mean treating kidney disease for so many patients.
Not to mention that this diet is also going to greatly
help losing weight and controlling cholesterol levels and high blood pressure –
some of the most serious risk factors for kidney disease.
Now some good news.
It was believed for a long time that patients who
suffered from diabetes for 6 years or more couldn’t go into remission.
Thanks to this new study, it’s finally proven that even
patients who had type 2 diabetes for 11 years CAN reverse it.
And it’s not just that.
Patients in this study were able to go into remission
from diabetes in just 3 months just by following one of the easiest and most
effective diets out there.
You see, intermittent fasting, IF in short, is my go-to
diet when I need to lose some weight.
It really works and it’s SO easy to implement.
However, you need to know exactly what you are doing
before you start this diet.
Doing IF wrong or for too long may even cause kidney
So today we are going to see how to start a diet that
really works from a practical point of view.
Before that, a very important question:
What’s new about intermittent fasting?
This study, published on the The Journal of Clinical
Endocrinology & Metabolism is showing that by following a diet based on IF,
17 out of 36 patients with type 2 diabetes were able to achieve remission from
diabetes in just 3 months.
completing the 3-month intervention plus 3-month follow-up, 47.2% (17/36) of
participants achieved diabetes remission in the CMNT group,
Remission from diabetes means that the patient has
(HbA1c) level of less than 6.5% for at least 3 months after discontinuing all
Now, these 17 patients who went into remission were
monitored for the following 12 months and only one of them relapsed.
And that’s also amazing, because we all know how hard it
is to keep the improvements once we stop a diet.
And the fact that 16 out of 17 were able to keep their
improve blood sugar levels for one year at least after stopping the diet is
another proof of the effectiveness of IF.
Now the most interesting part.
Nearly two-thirds of the participants who went into
remission had diabetes for more than six years.
It was believed that people can only achieve remission if
they’ve had the disease for six years or less and this study proves, on the other
hand, that someone who had diabetes for way longer than that can also go into
The possible dangers of IF
Now, before seeing how to implement this diet, we need to
address the possible dangers of IF.
I.F. can really help but it also comes with certain
dangers we should be aware of, so we can avoid them.
You see, the risk of hypoglycemia – too low blood sugar
levels – is pretty high for people with diabetes when doing I.F.
And there’s also a large body of evidence linking
skipping meals and I.F. to more incidence of kidney problems, especially but
not just in people with diabetes.
A different study even found a link between the number of
breakfasts someone makes per week and CKD incidence.
Here’s what they found out:
participants having less than 15 meals per week and not
having breakfast often, were more at risk of developing CKD.
findings suggest that <15 meals/week or skipping breakfast is associated
with a higher risk of CKD
Researchers motivated these findings by indicating
several studies that already linked low meal frequency and skipping breakfast
with an increased risk of coronary heart disease (CHD), metabolic syndrome, and
They also remarked that spending too much time in a
fasted state and without drinking water are also causes of kidney damage.
that mean that intermittent fasting is bad for you?
Well, not necessarily.
You see, intermittent fasting is not the same as skipping
Intermittent fasting is a dietary tool – a way to lose
And it only helps if it’s used to restrict caloric
intake, in a controlled and well-planned way.
Which is what we are going to do today.
On the other hand, if we fast for too long – maybe
because we’re too busy to eat and drink water – and without restricting caloric
intake – well, we may incur in the risk of damaging the kidneys.
So don’t do that.
Time now to see now how to set up an IF diet that actually works.
And, most important, that it is safe for people with
diabetes and with kidney disease.
As usual, my recommendation here is to consult a doctor
before making any change to your diet.
So, let’s see how you can set up this diet.
There are several different versions of IF.
Most used include
The 16:8 plan.
Someone following this diet would eat all their meals in
an 8 hour window during the day.
Then they would fast for 16 hours.
During fasting any non-caloric beverage such as plain tea
or coffee is allowed and water is obviously encouraged.
This is a diet I’ve personally used and it’s pretty easy
For example, you could choose to eat only from 12 p.m. to
This way, you would only avoid breakfast and keep all the
other meals the same.
Easy, isn’t it?
Other popular ways to implement this diet include eating
only from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. or from 2 p.m. to 10 p.m.
And this is an extremely easy diet to implement.
Because you would just be cutting calories without
changing your macros – the percentage of nutrients you get from carbs, fats and
Also, depending on how much you would need to restrict
calories, you can do the 16:8 plan even just once or twice per week.
Some people do this every day – and that would work, but
only for a short period.
Let’s say 2 or 3 months.
More than that and there could be more risks, as we have
So, as I was saying, this is a diet that I personally use
and that absolutely works.
I’ll also show you in the end of the video my favorite
hack to make this diet even more effective.
Now, this is not the type of intermittent fasting they
used to reverse diabetes in 3 months.
What they used is a modified version of the 5:2 plan.
What is the 5:2 plan?
Someone following a 5:2 plan would eat just 500 to 600
calories for 2 days a week and then eat normally for the other five.
Now, a 5:2 plan is a little more difficult to implement
in my opinion than a 16:8 because it requires more planning.
Your dietitian would need to set up a totally different
diet for the days in which you only eat 500 or 600 calories.
That’s because 500 to 600 calories are really not a lot
for a whole day.
I mean, a Big Mac alone is 550 calories, to give you an
example, and during one of the two fasting days you would get the same amount
of calories but for the whole day – and possibly from healthy foods.
But the other 5 days a week would be unrestricted and that’s
what makes this diet easy to follow and effective.
Now, let’s take a look at the diet they actually used in the study that reversed
diabetes in 3 months.
So, for 3 months, participants followed 6 cycles of 15
The 15 days were divided as follows:
5 modified fasting days
And 10 free days.
During the modified fasting days, participants would eat
840 calories a day – so a little bit more than what you would get in a 5:2
But they have to do that for 5 days in a row.
That was followed by 10 days without any restrictions.
Now, this whole cycle was repeated for 6 times.
So, 5 days on, 10 days off, repeat 6 times and then it
17 out of 36 patients got out of diabetes just by doing
this for 3 months.
They also lost a lot of weight and improved many of their
No modification of their exercising routine or lifestyle
Now, it’s also worth mentioning that during this study
participants were assigned 3 pre made meals for the modified fasting days that
you can see on screen.
They had to eat exactly what you see here at a fixed time
of the day.
Now, I don’t recommend following this exact diet to
someone with kidney disease, however.
My recommendation is to set up your own diet with your
And that’s all.
Now, I also want to add a tip that really worked for me.
A diet hack.
My personal tip is: try to combine exercising with IF.
I love doing this because when you are fasting, the body
doesn’t have any stored carbohydrates – known as glycogen – to use to produce
Now the only thing your body can burn to fuel your
workout is… body fat.
And that makes dieting way more effective.
This is supported by science, by the way.
And it’s also a win-win situation, because it makes
progressing a lot easier and faster, so you can reduce the duration of the
Just… don’t overdo it, especially if you have diabetes.
When fasted, exercising sessions should be shorter and
less intense than what you are used to.
Remember that if you feel too weak to work out from
fasting, you should take care of your nutrition and work out later.
So, what I usually do is skipping breakfast only one or
two times a week and do a light cardio workout during that fasted period.
And it works.
