Hello fellow banters, I spoke to my doctor about trying a banting diet in order to cure my diabetes. He advised me that this could be dangerous and that he would not recommend it, what are your thoughts?
Hi @banter, following a strict banting diet adhering primarily to those foods on the green list can only be beneficial for diabetics.
Bantology: The science of banting.
There has been quite a big debate regarding this and there is a lot of proof that banting actually cures Diabetes.
Your doctor doesn't sound like a banting-friendly doctor, so I would suggest that you try and find a banting-friendly doctor who will be able to advise you in the context of the banting diet.
You can also have a look at some testimonies regarding the topic here:
Hope this helps.
From a diabetic point of view, I would seriously look into all of the information out there and not just websites advocating the banting diet.
There is still an ongoing debate whether or not banting cures diabetes and they say that it has not been determined as of yet.
In my opinion the best would be to read both sides of the story before you make any decisions.
