There are two very successful approaches to reversing diabetes. One calls for changing to a ketogenic diet, at least until the diabetes is reversed. A ketogenic diet (also referred to as keto or LCHF) advocates plenty of fats and little to no carbohydrates. The other approach is to avoid all the “no-no” foods, including those listed above and more, and allows for plenty of healthy carbohydrates from vegetables and a few fruits (such as berries).
Both diets call for ample, but not excessive, healthy protein and avoidance of almost all sugar. Two notable exceptions are high cacao dark chocolate and a couple of ounces of pure pomegranate juice daily.
Since this article is about diabetic peripheral neuropathy, I encourage readers to do their own research about the two main dietary approaches to reversing diabetes. There are some good articles about the ketogenic diet on TTAC and I highly recommended Joel Fuhrman’s book The End of Diabetes.
