(NaturalNews) Constantly surrounded by a variety of food at his workplace, Oregon resident Clent Manich knew all too well how easy it was access foods wherever and whenever he wanted. He routinely ate hot dogs, soda and pizza. Eventually, his unhealthy dietary habits caused his weight to soar to an alarming 450 pounds. He was hardly able to walk due to pinched nerves in his back, was insulin dependent and had numerous hospital visits including one for pancreatitis in 2006.

These days, he trains for marathons, doesn't shy away from video cameras and is free from his diabetes. He's eager to show off what his trim and healthy body can do. So, how did he do it?

How one man overcame diabetes with a raw food diet

Manich lost over 200 pounds in about one year, going from having 43.7 percent body fat to an incredible 17.3 percent body fat by turning to a 100 percent raw food diet.

"I feel great, my energy level is amazing," says Manich. "It's better than when I was a teenager. I get up at five o'clock in the morning and feel like running a marathon." In addition to his increased energy and confidence, he says that his diabetes symptoms are completely gone. In the past, he explains that his waking blood glucose level would be over 128, and that now, its often in the low-70s.

"I had type 2 diabetes. I have now cured my diabetes . . ." Manich explains, adding that he typically eats more vegetables than fruit. He enjoys a " . . . wide variety of raw veggies, such as celery sticks, baby carrots, asparagus, sweet peppers, zucchini, broccoli, or any raw veggies" and says that when he craves sweet foods, he'll eat a peach or a banana, although he tends to consume fruit "in moderation."

He estimates that he lost about 7 pounds weekly once he started eating raw foods, dropping an astonishing 22 pounds the first month he started the healthier way of eating.

As he ponders whether he'll run a marathon or go mountain climbing, he says, "I'm never going to eat cooked food again."
