How to Lower Blood Sugar Fast

Podcast Transcript

This episode of the Mastering Diabetes Audio Experience is being republished with permission from Simon Hill of the wildly popular Plant Proof Podcast.

This episode was episode 74 of the Plant Proof podcast, in which we go into detail about the exact mechanisms by which a low-fat, plant-based, whole-food diet reverses the underlying cause of high blood sugar, known as insulin resistance.

Even though you may have heard the ins-and-outs of how to reverse insulin resistance using your food as medicine, we highly recommend listening to this episode because we go into incredible detail about how to lower blood sugar fast using your food as medicine (without the use of pharmaceutical medications). 

This episode is a deep dive into the heart of diabetes and teaches you how to truly control your blood glucose not only in the short-term but in the long-term as well. 

Get comfortable because this episode is about 2.5 hours, but we guarantee that by the end you will be a master of understanding the molecular mechanisms of insulin resistance, and the role that fatty acids, glucose, and insulin play in controlling your blood glucose.

This episode is also very helpful for people who are not living with any form of diabetes but are interested in learning more about how to improve their metabolic health using their food as medicine.
