Nu har jag samlat en hel del fakta och innehåll här på bloggen för att skapa en faktabaserad och stabil stomme som visar mitt synsätt på vad hälsa är, samt hur och varför jag äter som jag gör.

Målet med min blogg är att visa att denna kost verkligen fungerar i praktiken och är gjord för ALLA människor på denna planet! Diabetiker som icke diabetiker. Således tänker jag dagligen visa att detta fungerar genom att dela med mig utav mina blodsockervärden efter obegränsad mängd utav RIKTIG mat, vad jag äter, hur mycket utav det, mina erfarenheter och resultat utav att äta en "plant based, whole food, high carb, low fat, vegan" diet, samt lite utav min vardag och hur kosten påverkar och har förändrat mig på ALLA olika plan(och ja, faktiskt bara i positiv bemärkelse). Jag gör detta för att HJÄLPA alla stackare där ute som lider av en besvärlig diabetes och även INSPIRERA alla andra där ute som vill göra en radikal förändring och MÅ BRA!

Som diabetiker har jag alltid hört att jag måste räkna kolhydrater och äta mycket protein (EHH, har ni tänkt på att stressen som de hormonbombaderade djuren utsätts för hamnar i våra kroppar när vi äter dem dödade???? NÄ. Stressen påverkar mer än vad man tror) de säger även att fett inte påverkar blodsockret(?!)(EHH, Energin från de underbara kolhydraterna, som är till för att ge våra fina kroppar energi och glädje kommer inte in i cellerna pågrund av att det ligger för mycket FETT i vägen!) (och nej jag menar inte bara olja och sås. Det animaliska fettet är en STOR bov i det hela.) KOLHYDRATER är bränslet i våra kroppar och det är DE som ger oss energi till att skratta, umgås, träna, tänka, LEVA osv, osv, osv...

NU kan jag istället leva utan att tänka på kolhydrater eller kcal. ÄT tills du är nöjd, ÄT så mycket du vill! MINST 2500 kcal om dagen (Men håll dig då självklart till till en plant baserad kost) Ju mer du får i dig av härlig wholefood desto bättre! 

OBS: Kommentera gärna om ni tycker att det är intressant, har några frågor eller vill ha hjälp med något! Jag hjälper gärna till! Hoppas jag kan inspirera just DIG!

Becoming vegan was without a doubt, the most transformative decision and most impactful change I’ve ever made in my 19 turns around the sun. And, yes it did elevate my health, increase my energy levels, clear up my skin, elevate my mood, provide purpose and passion, and change my perspective, but none of those results are why becoming vegan has been so impactful. I think that something I’ve only recently realized is that for me, going vegan was the first time I had made any conscious decision for myself. Up until that point, I had just fallen into everything in my life. I was just trucking along a well-paved well-mapped path of: Learn that this is right, and that is wrong. Behave like this. Look like this. Think like this. Strive for this. Be ashamed of this. Like this. Hate that. And just make sure you don’t stray from the path that society says will lead to happiness. Oh also, don’t be yourself, because people wont like that. That’s the subtle conditioning that I (and so many others) was spoon fed since I was old enough to comprehend life as a construct. So all my life I did just that, I got straight A’s, train hard, ate as i "should do as an diabetics", had a job, had some friends, and had half a personality. I did everything that was expected and never strayed too far right or too far left of center… until that is, I decided to stop ingesting animal products. That decision was so revelatory for me and also rubbed many people the wrong way, because it wasn’t just a mindless act of following this well beaten path, instead it was a conscious and intentional act on my behalf.

For the first time in my life, I made a significant decision based on my conscience, my principles, my logic, and not somebody else’s. I thought for myself for the first time, and ignored what others, the government and mainstream society said was right. And that is what has truly changed my life. The effects of this decision far exceed health. It’s beyond just eating bananas, kale, rice, and beans. It’s beyond being consistent with moving my body. It’s even beyond the community that veganism can bring. Instead it was the notion, the idea, the concept, that was the subtle undercurrent of all of the conscious decisions I’ve made since then that have changed my life. It’s the idea of empowerment, of choosing yourself, and of living YOUR life for YOU. It’s the concept of working towards reversing the conditioning you’ve experienced, being open minded and critically thinking about everything at face value without entertaining prejudices. It’s the notion that your life is what you make it, and you know what you want more than anyone else on this planet; so don’t listen to society or your boyfriend, or your teacher, IF it doesn’t align with what your heart is telling you. I realized that when I went vegan I had done exactly that, I had followed my heart. But this realization was so subtle that I almost missed it. I almost missed realizing that choosing to be vegan was really the catalyst that has lead to me realizing that I have the power to choose myself, choose what I want, and choose to live according to my beliefs.

What choice will you make? choose happiness.



Dear Linnea:

Stop striving for perfection, understand that you are perfect in your imperfections, and that your flaws are the construct, which shape your human experience. And that my friend is a beautiful thing.

Stop searching externally for self worth and love. Stop looking for it in friends, partners, parents, society, status or anything in between. Instead look within, and find the inner peace where you are comfortable and at peace with yourself, and where most importantly you see your self worth and respect your beautiful soul.

Stop trying to “take” from the world. Understand that meaning comes not from being served, but in serving others. Being able to help others is the most gratifying, rewarding, and meaningful experience you could ever imagine. Although it’s counterintuitive, remember that giving does more for you than the person you give to.

Stop seeking inconsequential definitions of success that society has conditioned you to believe. Success is just the accomplishment of an aim or purpose. It is not represented by numbers in a bank account, cars in a garage, status within society, or other people’s approval and jealousy of you. True success in life is letting go of that conditioning and finding that which brings you and others you love joy. It is living an authentic and actualized life. It’s creating genuine connections with genuine people. It’s living in tune with nature and our hearts. It’s feeling moments of utter unimaginable inexplicable bliss. It’s laughing till you cry, loving till you hurt, falling till you rise, challenging your belief systems, living a life of intention, and being the happiest, healthiest most fulfilled version of yourself you can be.

Stop holding onto the past so religiously. Although you have been through much pain and suffering, operating from that mindset isn’t serving you in the present. The negativity your holding onto permeates and colours your daily interactions in such a subtle manner it’s barely noticeable, but it’s there and it affects you. Trust me, it does.

Stop comparing yourself with others, because well, that makes zero sense. You are you, and that’s all you can be. So just be you.

Stop fixating on your flaws, and move towards celebrating your attributes.

Stop fearing the unknown and the future. For if you do, you will spend your whole life in fear, and well no one wants to live that way. Fear serves no one, least of all you. Because what is it that you’re afraid of? Is it the mistakes you will inevitably make, the people you may hurt, the opportunities you may miss, the people who may judge you? Those eventualities will happen whether or not you fear them so you might as well embrace them. Embrace the lessons you can learn from them, embrace the necessity of them, and embrace the way in which those events will colour and shape your story. The energy wasted worrying about the future and unknown is nothing more than that, wasted energy.
Now I’m not saying to be fearless, for most of us, fear comes with the territory of being a human, but what I am saying is: don't let that fear paralyze you. Feel the fear, accept it, and live anyways, stray from convention anyways, do what you love anyways, make a decision anyways, change your life anyways, love anyways, be vulnerable and honest anyways, take a chance anyways, and don't let that fear prevent you from living. I believe wholeheartedly, that if you follow your bliss, the right doors will open for you, and if you let your bliss guide you, you will inevitably end up where you were meant to be. However be forewarned, that right path may not look like the right one in the moment.

Stop perpetuating your fear of missing out (FOMO). You are exactly where you need to be right now, so stop thinking about what you COULD have been doing, the people you could have met, the experiences you could have had, the lessons you could have learned, the money you could have made/saved, the happiness you could have experienced. Instead remember and dwell in the memories you ARE making right now, and revel in the beauty that, those experiences are exactly what you are meant to be experiencing right now.

Stop overdramatizing things in your life. Nothing is as important or dire as it seems. When you adopt perspective you realize that you are but one person on this planet, which is but one blue speck in a quiet tucked away corner of our vast and infinite universe.

Stop fixating on inconsequential things in life. Remember that there is so much more that defines you than your career, your aesthetics, your wealth, your social status, or your power. Cultivate those aspects of you that are actually definitive of who you are. Invest in your ability to love, to appreciate and to serve. Be proud of your sense of humour, willingness to grow, and passion for adventure. Appreciate your inquisitive mind and curious soul. And keep working on your love for yourself and your love for others.

Stop underselling yourself, understand that you are beautiful, you are worthy of love, and you are incredible. Don’t be afraid to think so or say so.

Stop judging and criticizing others, instead look within and focus on self-growth and betterment.

Stop letting yourself be swayed by others. Stay true to your principles and act in a way that you would be proud of. Stand up for your beliefs, and don’t feel obliged to “people please.”
Stop mistreating those you love most. Although you know that they will always love you and always be there for you, that is not permission for you to disrespect them, be ungrateful of them, and disregard their impact on your life.

Stop following what you THINK you want, and start following what you FEEL you want.

START living your life for you. Don’t’ just go through the motions in life, actually live. Start right now, in this second, today. Because life is for living, so go out there and live it.

What do you mean what do I eat? I eat food. Real food. Whole food. fresh food, Not bodily fluids, carcass + intestines of dead, tortured animals that is resulting in most of our major endemic diseases. I eat beans, potatoes, rice, nuts, seeds, legumes, lentils, vegetables, fruits, the list goes on and on. I create amazing meals daily with the beautiful ingredients that mother nature provides for me. I don't ever feel heavy or weighed down. I always feel aligned with mother nature. I always feel spiritually alive and happy because I am eating the living foods that we were designed to eat.



People want to get healthy and think they can live on vegetables and fruits but after a couple of days you will feel like you "starve yourself to death".. and you will! Because it is incredibly hard to get enough calories from vegetables. Vegetables are really good food and should be a big part of your diet but the mainkalories must come from starch. You must have your starches as pasta, potatoes, rice, quinoa etc as the center in your diet because this is a HIGH CALORIE, diet (No, it want let you fat, no matter what!) You need that energy to work, to defend your community, to train hard, to be happy!

So: It has to be starch-based. Otherwise, you won’t be satisfied and won’t stick with it and start to eat animal food that is destroying our planet and our health.



In this video, Dr. Michael Greger talks about how fat affects insulin resistance, and about how the most effective way to reduce insulin sensitivity is to reduce fat intake. I also provided a summary of Dr. Greger’s main points below.


This is not only for people with type 2 diabetes. The body of someone that has type 1 diabetes works the same except that it is you self that inject the insulin. You will therefore need to take less insulin at the same time that you eat more carbs because the insulin can easier open up the cells and inserting Glucose.

Insulin Resistance of People on High-Fat Diets vs. High-Carb Diets

In studies performed as early as the 1930s, scientists have noted a connection between diet and insulin intolerance. In one study, healthy young men were split into two groups. Half of the participants were put on a fat-rich diet, and the other half were put on a carb-rich diet. The high-fat group ate olive oil, butter, mayonnaise, and cream. The high-carb group ate pastries, sugar, candy, bread, baked potatoes, syrup, rice, and oatmeal.

Within two days, tests showed that the glucose intolerance had skyrocketed in the group eating the high-fat diet. This group had twice the blood sugar levels than the high-carb group. The test results showed that the higher the fat content of the diet, the higher the blood sugar levels would be.

What Is Insulin Resistance?

It turns out that as the amount of fat in the diet goes up, so does one’s blood sugar spikes. Athletes frequently carb-load before a race because they’re trying to build up fuel in their muscles. We break down starch into glucose in our digestive tract; it circulates as blood glucose (blood sugar); and it is then used by our muscle cells as fuel.

Blood sugar, though, is like a vampire. It needs an invitation to enter our cells. And that invitation is insulin. Insulin is the key that unlocks the door to let the glucose in the blood to enter the muscle cell. So insulin is the key that unlocks the door into our muscle cells.

What if there was no insulin? Blood sugar would be stuck out in the bloodstream banging on the door to our muscles and not able to get inside. With nowhere to go, blood sugar levels would rise and rise. In type 1 diabetes, an autoimmune disorder usually diagnosed in childhood, the cells in the pancreas that make insulin get destroyed; without insulin, sugar in the blood can’t get out of the blood into the muscles, and blood sugar rises.

But there’s a second way we could end up with high blood sugar, and it’s much more common than type 1 diabetes. Most people with high blood sugar, prediabetes, and diabetes have enough insulin in their bodies, but it doesn’t work. The key is there but something’s gummed up the lock. This is called insulin resistance.

The Cause of Insulin Resistance

What’s gumming up the door locks on our muscle cells, preventing insulin from letting glucose in?
It’s fat. Intramyocellular lipids, or the fat inside our muscle cells.

Fat in the bloodstream can build up inside the muscle cell and create toxic fatty breakdown products and free radicals that can block the insulin signaling process. When that happens, no matter how much insulin we have in our blood, it won’t be able to open the glucose gates. That causes blood sugar levels to build up in the blood.

This mechanism by which fat induces insulin resistance wasn’t known until modern MRI techniques were developed to see what was happening inside people’s muscles as fat was infused into their bloodstreams. The scans showed researchers that higher fat levels in the blood caused insulin resistance by interfering with glucose transport into the muscles.

This can happen within three hours. One hit of fat can start causing insulin resistance, inhibiting glucose uptake after just 160 minutes. You can also do the opposite experiment. Lower the level of fat in people’s blood and the insulin resistance comes right down. By clearing the fat out of the blood, you also clear the sugar out of the blood.

On the high-fat, ketogenic diet, insulin doesn’t work as well. Our bodies are insulin resistant. But as the amount of fat in our diet gets lower and lower, insulin works better and better. This is a clear demonstration that the sugar tolerance of even healthy individuals can be impaired by administering a low-carb, high-fat diet. We can decrease insulin resistance by decreasing fat intake.

A whole-food, plant-based diet is centered on whole, unrefined, or minimally refined plants. It’s a diet based on fruits, vegetables, tubers, whole grains, and legumes; and it excludes meat (including chicken and fish), dairy products, and eggs, as well as highly refined foods like bleached flour, refined sugar, and oil.

We know that’s a mouthful! Rest assured, though, that you’ll be eating in a way that people have thrived on for thousands of years. We believe that you will find—as we do—that the diet and foods are very tasty and satisfying. Following are the food categories from which you’ll eat, along with a few examples from each. 

  • Fruit as: mangoes, bananas, grapes, strawberries, blueberries, oranges, cherries, etc.
  • Vegetables as: lettuce, collard greens, broccoli, cauliflower, kale, carrots, etc.
  • Tubers and starchy vegetables: potatoes, sweet potatoes yams, squash, corn, peas, etc.
  • Whole grains: millet, quinoa, barley, rice, whole wheat, oats, etc.
  • Legumes: kidney beans, chickpeas, lentils, lima beans, cannellini beans, black beans, etc.

Now that you know generally what sorts of foods you’ll be eating, let’s delve further into what the diet is and what it most definitely is not.

A Whole-Food, Plant-Based Diet Is Not a Diet of Vegetables

You may have heard that people living this way eat lots of spinach, kale, and collard greens, and that this is, in fact, the primary basis for many of the meals. You may even think we live only on leafy and raw vegetables. However, nothing could be further from the truth.

While leafy vegetables are an important part of the whole-food, plant-based diet, they are a very poor calorie, i.e., energy, source to be sustainable. We would need to eat almost 16 pounds of cooked kale to get 2,000 calories of food! We certainly don’t eat this way, and we wouldn’t blame you for thinking it sounds crazy—we think so, too! In fact, it is virtually impossible to get enough calories from leafy vegetables alone to form a sustainable diet. Perhaps the most common reason for failure in this lifestyle is that people actually try to live on leafy vegetables alone. If you try to live on these vegetables, you become deficient in calories. Not eating enough calories leads you to feel hungry, which over time may result in decreased energy, feelings of deprivation, cravings, and even binges. These issues are not caused by switching to a plant-based diet—rather, they are all related to not eating enough.

Don’t get us wrong: We certainly recommend you eat generous amounts of leafy vegetables. But these are complementary foods that you eat regularly. They are not the energy source on your food plate.
So if leafy vegetables aren’t the basis of a whole-food, plant-based life- style, what is?

Starch-Based Foods and Fruit Form the Basis of the Whole-Food, Plant-Based Diet

Most of the Americans are accustomed to building the dinner plate around meat. This will change with your new lifestyle. The center of your plate is now going to be the starch-based comfort foods most of us have always loved, but that have long been relegated to side dishes or stigmatized because of a misperception that they are “unhealthy.” Yet these are the foods that people around the world have thrived on for generations: tubers like potatoes and sweet potatoes; starchy vegetables like corn and peas; whole grains like brown rice, millet, quinoa, and buckwheat; and legumes like chickpeas, black beans, kidney beans, and lima beans.

No More Eating For Single Nutrients... Focus on the “Package” and the Foods You Enjoy

The idea of eating a particular food for one nutrient is pervasive in our culture. We have been led to believe we should eat meat for protein, dairy for calcium, fish for omega-3 fatty acids, and even tomatoes for lycopene, among many others. This sort of thinking is misguided and has caused grave harm to human health. The quest for protein, for example, has steered us toward meat consumption. In this quest, we not only consume protein in excess of our needs, but also many harmful substances like dietary cholesterol that are only present in animal foods.

No food is a single nutrient, and we should never think of foods in that way. Any given food has countless nutrients. What matters most is the overall nutrient profile, i.e., the whole package. Whole, plant-based foods contain all the essential nutrients (with the exception of vitamin B12), and in proportions that are more consistent with human needs than animal-based or processed foods. So our question is really this: Why waste any of what we eat on inferior packages? As long as—over time—we choose a variety of whole, plant-based foods, we will easily meet our nutritional needs.

Even on this diet, people sometimes tend to worry about eating a certain type of green vegetable for calcium, beans for protein, nuts for fat, and so on. We ask you to let go of that kind of thinking. The most important thing in this lifestyle is to choose the whole, plant-based food you enjoy most.

One of the first things I hear when people become aware of my "diet" is:

1- What about blood sugar/insulin from all that fruit sugar?

2- Where do you get your protein.

Lets address the first misconception today, which often is brought about by the High Fat and Protein/Low Carb advocates, i.e. Atkins and Paleo Diet. What about blood sugar levels?

Lets first take a look at sugars stages in the body.

Stage 1- Sugar enters the digestive tract when we eat.

Stage 2- Sugar passes through the intestinal wall, into the bloodstream.

Stage 3- Sugar then moves quickly and easily out of the bloodstream and into our cells, this can take just minutes to happen.

Your body produces insulin to transport glucose(sugar) from your blood into your cells. Think of it as insulin taking glucose by the hand and guiding it into your cells from the bloodstream. When we eat or drink our blood sugar level rises causing the pancreas to produce insulin to help guide the glucose from the bloodstream out and into the cells. As mentioned in Stage 3, this process can happen rapidly, unless too much fat is also in the bloodstream. Fat is the actual problem here, not sugar.

When fat levels in the blood rise, so does blood sugar. Fat inhibits insulin from doing its natural process. Remember my last blog post, our biology was designed to eat large amounts of fruits and vegetables, we evolved from Apes. Fat is not a food in abundance to Apes. Excess fat lines the blood vessel walls, insulin receptor sites, the sugar molecules, the cells, and the insulin with a thin coating of fat. The excess fat, not sugar, prevents normal metabolic activity. There are millions of people with diabetes now in our country, this is a fat issue, not a sugar issue.

Of course, genitically modified organisms(GMO's) and unnatural processed sugars are a major issue to health. High Fructose Corn Syrup(HFCS) is in just about everything now, but this should not be confused with fructose and glucose derived from fruits and vegetables. This is an entirely different subject to be discussed in the future. Fat and processed foods are highly acidic, fruits and vegetables are alkaline. These alkaline foods should be consumed in abundance. Alkaline foods are loaded with vitamins and minerals, something high fat and processed foods lack.

Remember, fruit is designed to move through the bloodstream quickly. When we have to much excess fat/oil in the bloodstream that is the root of the problem. This causes the sugar to remain in the bloodstream for too long leading to health issues. Remove the excess fat and the sugar can enter and exit the cell as designed. High carb, low fat. Consume 80+% of your calories from natural carbohydrate foods like fruits, vegetables, and grains. Keep your fat intake under 10%. High protein foods are notoriously high in fats. Beef can have 50-80% fat content, nuts are about 70+% fat. Stay away from oils as well, these are 100% fat! A lot of people think they are eating a high protein diet, when in fact, they are eating a high fat diet.

Check out this data from a few scientific journals that were posted in Dr. Douglas Graham's book, The 80/10/10 Diet.

- A quarter pound of beef raises insulin levels in diabetics as much as a quarter pound of straight sugar. (Diabetes Care 7(1984):465)

- Cheese and beef raises insulin levels higher than "dreaded" high-carbohydrate foods like pasta. (American Journal of Clinical Nutrition 50(1997):1264)

- A single burger's worth of beef, or three slices of cheddar, boost insulin levels more than almost 2 cups of cooked pasta. (American Journal of Clinical Nutrition 50(1997):1264)
