In 2012, over 90 million people had diabetes or pre-diabetes. One out of every 2 people with diabetes don’t know they have the condition. Lifestyle choices are the best strategies to controlling your blood sugar, reducing your risk of diabetes and preventing secondary health problems from the condition. These numbers demonstrate the rise in people suffering from diabetes originate outside a genetic cause.
Chronically high blood sugar from poor nutrition and exercise choices may trigger long-term damage to your body. It is imperative that you evaluate your current dietary and exercise choices against the natural ways you can prevent diabetes.
Dr. Mercola states that ” A healthy lifestyle can not only prevent type 2 diabetes but also typically may reverse it as well. With proper attention to diet and lifestyle, type 2 diabetes is curable, and in the vast majority of cases does not require any form of medication.”
- Get your fiber on... most people get 15g of fiber a day… We need to increase this to 30-50g per day. The best sources come from Chia Seeds, Berries, Almonds, Root Vegetables, Beans, Psyllium Seed Husk, Green Beans, Peas, Broccoli, Brussel Sprouts, Cauliflower, Air Popped Popcorn.
- Reduce Your Net Carbs – A low-net carbohydrate diet reduces the stress on your body, reduces inflammation and reduces the amount insulin required to use the energy from the food you eat. You’ll want to reduce the number of net carbs you eat to 50 grams per day. This number is calculated by taking the grams of carbs you’ve eaten and subtracting the number of grams of fiber. In this way a high-fiber diet also helps you to lower the amount of insulin you need to utilize your food for fuel.
- High-Quality Fats – When you reduce your carbohydrates, what are you going to replace them with? Your best alternative is high-quality, healthy fats necessary for heart health, feeding your brain and to modulate genetic regulation and prevent cancer. Healthy fats include: Avocado, Coconut Oil, Raw Ruts, Olive Oil, Organic Eggs, Grassfed Meat.
- Exercise – Exercise has a significant impact on the resistance your body builds up to the hormone leptin. The more you exercise, the more your cells are sensitive to leptin. As your body becomes sensitive to leptin, it reduces your potential resistance to insulin and therefore your risk of diabetes.
- Hydration – When you become dehydrated, your liver will secrete a hormone that increases your blood sugar. As you hydrate, blood sugar levels lower naturally.Stay well-hydrated by monitoring the color of your urine during the day. The color should be light yellow. Sometimes your first indication your body requires more water is the sensation of being hungry. Drink a large glass of water first and wait 20 minutes to determine if you’re really hungry or you were thirsty. Ask yourself, Am I physically hungry?6.Reduce Your Stress – When you become stressed your body secretes cortisol and glucagon, both of which affect your blood sugar levels. Control your stress levels using exercise, meditation, yoga, prayer or relaxation techniques. These techniques may reduce stress and correct insulin secretion problems.
7.Sleep – Enough Sleep is necessary to feel good and experience good health. Poor sleeping habits may reduce insulin sensitivity and promote weight gain.
