Type 2 diabetes (T2D) is a widely prevalent disease. On the flip side, it’s very much preventable. In most cases, T2D can be avoided by maintaining a healthy weight and avoiding an excessively sedentary lifestyle.
Another key component that goes hand in hand with preventing T2D? A good diet of course. Today, we want to get into exactly that.
T2D can be prevented by eating a healthier diet. Even if you already have the condition, the silver lining is that it’s reversible and can be kept at bay for good with an improved diet. By that, we mean shifting to a food plan that is low-carb and/or ketogenic. Diets such as these help you lose pounds (if needed) and keeps you at a healthy weight, both of which are important in the prevention of T2D.
Next, reduce the amount of sugar and refined carbohydrates (potatoes, white bread, sugary cereals) consumption. Incorporate complex carbs such as oatmeal and whole grains instead.
And don’t, under any circumstances, skip breakfast! Even if you’re not hungry, having breakfast to kickstart your metabolism for the day ahead is essential in combating T2D. In fact, having breakfast is good for pretty much everyone. You also don’t want to end up overeating by lunchtime and then having a late dinner afterwards, which will mess up your metabolic process.
Do also consider adding more fibre into your diet. Fibre helps keep us feeling full for longer. So remember to be mindful of your weight, and keep to an active lifestyle; being lightly or moderately active counts too. With these two factors,the majority of T2D cases can be prevented.
Additionally, why not consider complementing your diet with supplements – personalised ones in fact?
Supplements help fill the nutritional gaps that occur in our diets. As we age, our ability to absorb nutrients declines too. Supplements also help boost our immune system, which protects us better from harmful chemicals in our environment.
