How to become diabetic in 6 hours - does this video have any value?

Interesting video on how the physical mechanics of oil affects blood & insulin. Using fatty foods to elevate triglycerides and desensitize the body to insulin, glucose elevates rapidly. Could this have long term effects on overall health? Most of us would think that extra virgin olive oil (EVOO) is healthy for us, but perhaps individual with certain metabolic issue may reconsider this.

I worked at the Pritikin Center. I preached the no fat/low fat line. I almost died because of it. Welcome to the community eric...it is a great hunt here.

Totally lame.

Notice that he doesn't say what exactly, and in what quantity, he eats throughout the course of his little "experiment." "OOOOOH! A Plasma TV!" . For a vegan it seemed like he was REALLY into that meaty sandwich eh?

Not only that, he doesn't tell us what his normal diet is. His insulin sensitivity is probably so out of whack already from (my guess) his apparent LOW LOW fat/high whole grain/fruit diet, that no wonder his blood glucose rockets into the stratosphere. And guess what? His "healthy" vegan body doesn't know what to do with itself.

EDIT: I posted a comment, but it's "awaiting approval." Riiiight...like it'll ever see the light of day..

Also, he calls himself a "doctor," but never went to medical school. What a quack.

Whoa! He consumes all that bread and pizza crust, showing pictures of white potatoes and then blames triglyceride rise on the olive oil? Sleight-of-hand anyone?

When I dropped all the starch and sugar, my own triglycerides dropped 400 points even with an increase in fats.

After watching that I'll have to put apparent vegan Nick Delgado into the same category as vegan Neal Barnard, who has also pulled some rather underhanded stunts in his agenda. What drives these people with their misinformation campaigns?

That bullshit is like saying "How to become a crossdresser in 6 minutes"...see...I check myself in man clothes, now I am going to put on a dress...tah dah..I am a crossdresser!" Really? Really?

I REALLY am a Diabetic. I didn't get to it by eating olive oil. I did it by following the low fat/no fat mentality that The Pritikin Center, where Delgado worked, espoused. From his bio "Nick Delgado graduated from the University of Southern California, with studies at Rancho Los Amigo Hospital, USC, Loma Linda University, California State Long Beach and Los Angeles as well as continued research with interventional endocrinology, hematology and physiology. He served as Director of the Pritikin Better Health Program of the Nathan Pritikin Longevity Center. Ongoing studies of participants in the Pritikin Plan were being monitored by Dr Massey of the Loma Linda School of Public Health."

I wish him good luck as a vegan proponent. His mentors are vegans. Vegan diet may be more healthy than SAD, but is not the optimal diet. I will stick with Paleo...high fat/moderate protein/low carb. It has normalized my bloodsugars and given me back my health. I work with Dr. Ron Rosedale now and understand what health benefits are to be gained by eating fat not sugar or things that turn to sugar.

A little confusing... do we really think that it's the body's instantaneous level of triglycerides that is correlated with heart problems? I always had the impression that the correlation held for long-standing triglyceride levels, and he plainly said his levels would go down within a few hours. Isn't that why you have to fast before going in for a blood test?

God bless Mmmerica!
