Diabetes surgery will put your life on the line

If you want to beat diabetes, you CAN beat diabetes -- and you can do it without drugs or surgery.

It's the hard way, but anything worth doing is worth doing right.

Don't tell that to the mainstream, though. They claim they can "cure" your diabetes the easy way -- and all you have to do is let them slice and dice your stomach until it's been reduced to a little pouch that can't hold much more than a jar of baby food.

Depending on the specific surgery, up to 95 percent of patients who got chopped up in a series of new studies were effectively cured -- at least, they didn't need meds or insulin anymore (and maybe they even learned to enjoy strained peas).

A miracle? Not in my book -- because miracles don't come with nausea, indigestion, dehydration, and some extremely bad-smelling farts. That last one might sound funny until you actually experience it yourself after one of these procedures.

It's embarrassing enough to make your life hell.

Bariatric surgeries also come with a risk of complications up to and including death itself. Many of the people who get them even manage to undo the surgery by eating increasingly large amounts of food until the "new" stomach gets even bigger than the old one.

And eventually, they're back to square one -- fat and diabetic.

Some miracle!

Forget surgery. Like I said, you CAN cure diabetes without drugs or surgery, and all you need to do is commit to a low-carb diet.

Instead of puking your guts up anytime you eat more than a thimbleful of glop -- and yes, that really happens after surgery -- a low-carb diet will allow you to enjoy generous servings of delicious foods such as steak, eggs, pork chops, and even bacon.

Yes, bacon -- and if you stick to it long enough, you'll be able to toss the meds and skip the insulin.

Did I mention the bacon? Now that's what I call a cure.
