1917 Diabetes Cookbook

In 1917 Rebecca Oppenheimer published “Diabetic cookery; recipes and menus” which described what was already known about the optimal diet for diabetics — more butter, olive oil, meats, cheeses, eggs, and healthy fats (low in carbohydrates), and less sugar, starch, bread, pasta, and other foods that raise blood sugar (due to high carbohydrate content).

This is essentially a low carb / high fat (LCHF) diet, which not only helps diabetics to reduce their blood glucose, but is also effective for weight loss and other metabolic conditions.

The book can be found online at and you can download it in PDF format here.

Here are pages 12 and 13 from the book.

Diabetic Cookery

Food Industry BS

The Chocolate Cheerios Miracle: prevent heart disease by eating breakfast candy!

33% of the contents is added sugar, the rest is mostly starch. Ingredients include sugar, corn syrup, canola oil, artificial color. Perfect for anyone seeking obesity, Type 2 diabetes, and a variety of other metabolic ills.

How do they claim it “may reduce the risk of heart disease”? — because it is low fat. But low fat does not prevent anything. The goal is to keep people scared of fat while loading them up on sugar and refined carbohydrates, which is exactly what is making people fat and sick.

This is the kind of thing still being recommended by government and health “authorities” around the world. Why? Because we have a politically powerful medical industry that profits from a sick population. There’s no money in healthy people or dead people — the financial sweet spot is in chronic illness.

Eat real food.
