Every person diagnosed with diabetes, is told that diet and exercise is the key to control the condition. After all, insulin shots and medication will only go so far.
If you want to live a healthy life with diabetes, you need to get regular exercise and follow a healthy diet.
For those living with Type 2 diabetes, just living a healthy lifestyle can potentially lead to a reversal.
Wouldn’t it be nice no longer use medication or get insulin shots to control your diabetes?
If this is something important to you, you then need to create a healthy lifestyle plan that includes a good diet and regular exercise.
A Grim Outlook
When a person with diabetes fails to gain control over their condition, it can lead to an array of other health problems including but not limited to:
• Heart disease
• High blood pressure
• Kidney disease
• Slow healing or never healing wounds
In severe cases, people may lose a limb or go into a diabetic coma.
However, with a proper diet and exercise plan, you can control your diabetes and have better overall health.
There’s no reason to feel your diabetes is controlling your life because it doesn’t. You don’t have to let it dictate your present or future.
Once you make some positive changes to your current lifestyle, you will see results you never thought were possible.
You can live a very productive life, whether you have Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes.
Regain Control Of Your Health By Incorporating Diet and Exercise
Most people, when they hear the word “diet,” begin to think negatively about it.
In their minds, it’s the deprivation of foods they enjoy and now have to eat bland boring tasteless food.
They may even think they’ll starve.
However, a “real” diet means to develop a well-thought-out food plan, that even allows you to eat “junk” food every now and then.
What you need to realize however, is how these foods will hinder or help your diabetic eating plan.
You’ll need to make some adjustments to your plan, since these junk foods can cause your blood sugar levels to spike if you don’t control the intake.
Out of control blood sugar levels can have a detrimental impact on your health.
Food And Blood Sugar
Besides your diabetes eating plan, you need to have a good understanding of how foods affect your blood sugar levels.
This will help you to decide which foods you can keep eating, and which foods need to be avoided.
Some foods you need to get rid of altogether include:
• Refined grains (bread, rice and pasta)
• Fruit-flavored yogurt
• Maple syrup and honey
• Dried fruit
• Soft drinks
These foods can increase your chances, of developing Type 2 diabetes and lead to inflammation.
