Talk on How Diabetes Can Be Reversed Through a 30-Day Diet at SUNY Rockland Community College


Admission free and open to the public


Suffern, NY—Ian Newman, SUNY Rockland Community College Associate Professor and co-author of the book, "The 30-Day Diabetes Miracle," will speak on how a specially designed diet changed his life.


Newman and co-authors, Dr. Franklin House and Dr. Stuart A. Seale, will discuss how their low-fat, high-fiber, carb-heavy, plant based diet can lower body weight, blood sugar levels, cholesterol and blood pressure on Tuesday, March 11, 7 p.m. in the Cultural Arts Theater on the main campus in Suffern. Healthful refreshments will be served. Admission is free and open to the public.


Newman, currently on a national bus tour promoting the book, stated, "I went from barely being able to climb the stairs in 2005, to summiting Mt. Kilimanjaro in 2007." He said, "Since beginning the program three years ago, I've dropped 30 pounds and cut my insulin intake by more than half–which is why I was able to lose the weight. I came off my triglyceride drug and three other medicines, and feel great."


The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that one in three children born in 2000 in the US will develop diabetes in their lifetime. Currently, 21 million Americans have diabetes while 41 million more are pre-diabetic. The founders of Lifestyle Center of America in Oklahoma and co-authors of, "The 30-Day Diabetes Miracle," believe their proven track record and scientific research demonstrates that a "miracle" or "cure" exists.  Unchecked, diabetes kills.  It causes one or more of the following: diminishing vision, pain in the extremities, amputations, kidney failure, heart attacks and more.

"One and a half million adults will be diagnosed in 2008 with diabetes (type-2), and most of them will have developed their chronic disease through food, a sedentary lifestyle, and other lifestyle choices under their control," said co-author Dr. House, chairman of the board for Lifestyle Center of America.  "The good news is most of these individuals can take back their health through better choices. Though insulin is a must for those with type 1 diabetes, optimum health can be maintained with lower insulin requirements by following our program."
