For Improving Insulin Efficiency
For Improving Insulin Efficiency

Majid Ali, M.D.
To reverse pre-diabetes and diabetes (completely or partially), my primary objective is to lower both blood sugar and insulin levels by making insulin work better. For individuals with pre-diabetes with insulin toxicity but without high blood sugar levels, my goal is to lower blood insulin levels by increasing insulin efficiency.
Dr. Ali’s Insulin Normalization Plan
My Insulin Reduction Protocol has three components:
- A plan of food choices to prevent sugar spikes that trigger insulin spikes, and
- A plan to do daily gentle bowel and liver detox.
- A Plan for Spiritual Surrender
In the Table 2 below, I present a case study to show how blood glucose and insulin levels were lowered (by increasing insulin efficiency) with the clinical application of Dr. Ali’s Insulin Reduction Protocol. I follow this with some explanatory comments. In Table 1, I present the insulin and glucose values of an individual in good metabolic health.

Diabetes Reversal Requires a Philosophy of Healing
Diabetes Type 2 can be reversed neither with the denial of dieting nor with euphoria of eating. Diabetes can be reversed only with a philosophy of eating and living. It requires knowing the difference between being “diabetes-literate” and “healing-literate.” Diabetes is the number one cause of blindness, neuropathy, toe and limb amputations, kidney failure leading to dialysis, and increased risk of strokes, memory loss, and heart attacks. So reversing diabetes is an act of self-compassion. If these words pull you toward making an honest attempt to lose diabetes Type 2, please consider studying “Dr. Ali’s Course on Healing” (available at www.aliacademy.com).
Five Important Facts About Insulin-Wise and Insulin-Unwise Foods
I coined the terms Insulin-Wise and Insulin-Unwise Foods to raise consciousness about the serious adverse effects of insulin spikes on all cell populations in the body.
- Insulin in excess (insulin toxicity) is fattening and inflaming.
- Healthy fats are insulin-friendly.
- Healthy proteins are insulin-friendly.
- All breads, pastas, fruits and fruit juices, and sugars are insulin-unfriendly.
- Vegetables are insulin-friendly.
Simply stated, Insulin-Wise foods facilitate insulin signals and other functions, while Insulin-Unwise foods impede or block insulin signals and other functions. I present this subject at length in my book entitled “Dr. Ali’s Plan for Reversing Diabetes” and in a 40-minute video seminar that can be downloaded from www.aliacademy.org or by calling 1-800-633-6226.
Below are guidelines for Dr. Ali’s Insulin Diet. If initially this diet plan is found to be too hard and restrictive, one or two days a week may be taken as free days. Of course, some insulin benefits will be lost on such days.
Insulin-Friendly Breakfast for Saving Insulin and Preventing Diabetes
- Please consider “Dr. Ali’s Breakfast” (protein shake described below) four or five days a week.
2.` Take eggs and vegetables for breakfast the remaining two days.
- No fruit juices, breads, or toast.
Insulin-Friendly Lunch for Saving Insulin and Preventing Diabetes
- Large salad with goat cheese, chicken, or fish. All the olive or sesame oil you wish.
- Uncooked, steamed, or lightly stir-fried vegetables. All the olive or sesame oil you wish.
Use four to six ounces of the Dr. Ali’s Breakfast shake (prepared in the morning and carried to work).
Insulin-Friendly Dinner for Saving Insulin and Preventing Diabetes
- All healthy fats and oils
- All healthy proteins
- Uncooked, steamed, or lightly stir-fried vegetables with melted butter or olive oil (to your heart’s content).
Optimal Breakfast Choices for Diabetes
Dr. Ali’s Breakfast on five to six days per week comprising: (1) two tablespoons of a protein powder containing 85 to 90 percent calories in proteins and peptides; (2) two tablespoons of a granular lecithin; (3) two tablespoons of freshly ground flaxseed (the use of a coffee grinder is recommended); (4) 12 to 16 ounces of organic vegetable juice (avoiding or minimizing the use of carrots and red beets); and (5) 12 to 16 ounces of water. A few ounces of seltzer water or a few drops of lemon juice may be added to suit personal taste. I personally consume this mixture in portions of six to eight ounces with my morning nutrient and herbal protocols during the period of my morning exercise, meditation, and preparation for work. I have not yet encountered any negative impact of the protein content in this breakfast on renal function. Still, individuals with serum creatinine levels above the normal range need to be monitored for renal function.
Insulin Channel on YouTube Science, Health, and Healing Encyclopedia
I offer about 75 videos on insulin in health and disease on my my YouTube Science, Health, and Healing Encyclopedia. I especially recommend the channel entitled “Seven Faces of Insulin Toxicity”: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zxtVhe0mnf4
Insulin – the Minister of Energy and Metabolism
I designate insulin to be the Minister of Energy and Metabolism to the Oxygen king of the human body. By its signals, it regulates the energy of all cells in the body. Of necessity, this means that insulin has a role to play in the health preservation of all such cells.
Insulin is a hormone produced in specialized cells of the pancreas gland called beta cells. It is a string made up of 51 amino acid molecules and has a molecular weight of 5808 Daltons. Insulin performs diverse metabolic and non-metabolic functions in the body. As for metabolism, its major functions include the transfer of glucose from the blood into the liver and muscle cells for storage and into the fatty tissues to stop the use of fat as fuel. Among the major non-metabolic functions are its roles in cellular development, differentiation, and death.
