Today let's talk about the two best ways to improve your diabetic symptoms or rid yourself of the disease (type2)!!
Diabetes type 2 can be caused by poor diet, a sedentary lifestyle, a women's diet when she's pregnant, impaired glucose (sugar) tolerance, family history, high blood pressure and the leading cause is obesity (excess weight). We know this though it's not always wanted to be admitted.
What are the 2 best management tools? Diet & Exercise!! Don't the both win out no matter what issue we're talking about? It's because there's power there. & you have control over them!! Both do a better job than drugs in improving fitness, insulin sensitivity, blood fats, cardiovascular risk factor & in glycemic control.
When shifting your diet you should eliminate refined sugars, corn syrup, high-fructose corn syrup (we've known this a long time now too), soda, white rice & breads, overly processed foods (boxed or canned), refined salt & artificial sweeteners. You WANT to include fresh fruits & veggies, legumes, nuts & seeds, fiber, whole grains and lean proteins.
Exercise will quickly lowers blood sugar, improves insulin resistance, decreases artery wall thickening, reduces adipose (fat) tissue and increases muscle. You need some form of it every day for at least 30 minutes. But you can start with 5!!!! Simply walking can start you on your way!!
