What is known as the hypoglycemic diet should really be called the “Natural Diet”.
This is the diet that humans have consumed over the millions of years to which our digestive system has adapted. It is said to provide the right combination of amino acid, vitamins and minerals from the food we eat.
The best plan is to ask yourself what diet your ancestors ate and think of your grand-parents. Think of what people ate in the 19th century without the sugar.
Whatever diet you finish up with, you must choose a diet that you enjoy.
In brief the nutritional treatment of the hypoglycemic condition consists of:
1) Avoidance of sugar, refined carbohydrates, such as white bread, white rice, cakes and sugary drinks, candy bars, colas, cookies, ice cream
2) High protein + complex carbohydrates snacks every three to four hours or sooner, to provide a slow release of glucose, and to prevent the hypoglycemic dip. A high protein breakfast must be considered the most important meal of the day. ”High-protein foods, such as fish, eggs, chicken, and beef, contain all twenty-two, including the nine amino acids that are considered essential for humans.” Eat plenty of green vegetables and fruits and the more varied the diet the better it is.
3) Fiber in your diet slows down the absorption of glucose (thereby avoiding blood sugar peaks and the release of stress hormones) Include fresh vegetables in your diet because they are high in fiber and low in sugar.
4) A diet low in processed sugars aims at normalizing blood sugar levels, thereby normalizing stress hormones such as adrenaline and cortisol, that are thought to be responsible for the symptoms of mood-swings, depression, anxiety, phobias, alcoholism and drug-addiction.
Such a pattern of eating needs to be adjusted to the individual needs and nutritional biochemistry. It needs to take into account the influence of allergies.
Furthermore, it should be realized that the beneficial effects this eating plan may take considerable time. Normally, the effects are noticeable within three months. If after this time symptoms still persist, it is time to seek the help of a clinical nutritionist or nutritional doctor for further testing, diagnosis and treatment.
ASK YOURSELF, “IS WHAT I AM EATING NATURE MADE OR MAN MADE?”
Nature-made food consists of complex carbohydrates and proteins, the kind of food we were meant to eat.
Try to introduce the nature made foods slowly and gradually.
When introducing a new diet we must always consider possible allergies.
Many hypoglycemics have hidden allergies, that is after having been on the hypoglycemic diet for some time they discover that they are allergic to certain food items. These were there all the time, but were masked by hypoglycemic symptoms.
Finding your Allergies.
The Hypoglycemic Diet should not be regarded as a ‘quick fix diet’. It takes time for the body to adjust to a different nutritional lifestyle. Time is needed to absorb and metabolize nutrients to be converted to neurotransmitters, enzymes and coenzymes, and to rebuild receptors for natural neurochemicals.

There is a eating for life plan that promotes fresh or cooked fruits and vegetables as the majority of your diet because they contain a lot of nutrients. This plan also endorses nuts and beans and tries to limit the intake of saturated fats in the diet. The American diet is high in saturated fats, sugar, processed foods and low in nutrients. This may be one of the reasons why people overeat – in order to get in all the nutrients they need.
I started this style of eating a week ago, and am eating 5 fresh fruit a day ( banana, apple, orange, blueberries etc). I ALSO am eating stewed vegetable soups containing carrots, broccoli, brussel sprouts, kidney beans and chickpeas.
I will try to limit meat intake to once a week and I will try to limit fish intake to once or twice a week as well.
Last night for dinner I had a fresh salad with spinach, lettuce, kidney beans, carrots, broccoli and then went to the party where I had more fresh vegetables while others ate the chicken wings and fried foods.
I recently recommended this eating pattern to a 58 year old diabetic patient with hypertension and high cholesterol who is 5ft 5 and weighs 270. He is in the early stages of kidney disease from his adult onset diabetes and needs to lose weight and improve his blood pressure from diet in addition to the medications he is presently on.
I would people to comment on what they think of the above eating habits. Do you think it is possible for this patient to overcome his present condition by nutritional medicine.
Dr Martin Fried discusses what holistic medicine as a form of healing that considers the whole person- body, mind, spirit and emotions- in the quest for optimal health and wellness.
According to the holistic medicine philosophy, one can achieve optimal health by gaining proper balance in life.
Holistic medicine practitioners believe that the whole person is made up of interdependent parts and if one part is not working properly, all the other parts will be affected.
In this way, if people have imbalances ( physical, emotional, or spiritual) in their lives, it can negatively affect their overall health.
Treatment involves fixing the cause of the condition and not just alleviating the symptoms.
