Being Active Reduces the Risk of Developing Type 2 Diabetes

People with diabetes often take prescription drugs to maintain their health and sugar levels. Diabetes patients should be making healthier choices like exercising and eating better to improve their health. Good nutrition helps to get the proper amount of nutrients through food and not through supplements. Similarly, exercise helps build strength, endurance, and reduces fat. The best part? There are no side effects from eating right and exercising.

Studies show that staying active helps reduce the risk of developing type 2 diabetes as well as cardiovascular disease. So what can someone with type 2 diabetes do? According to the Journal of the American Medical Association found that when people with type 2 diabetes did a combination of aerobic (cardio) exercise and resistance training, they were able to lower blood sugar levels after nine months than people who did either type of exercise alone.

Curing Diabetes With a Healthy Lifestyle

Type Two diabetes is something that can be developed over time due to poor eating and exercise habits. Conversely, it is also something that can be reversed through smart and effective eating and exercise habits. However, the problem here lies in the fact that far too many people rely on prescription drugs or medical surgeries to turn their health around, rather than sticking to the basics and living a healthy lifestyle.

First off, to understand if you are at risk of type two diabetes you need to know your numbers. This refers to your cholesterol level, BMI, blood pressure and body fat percentage. Once you know this things you will have a better picture of your overall health and you will be able to better assist your risk of type two diabetes and your course of action.

Nearly 70% of all Americans are on at least one prescription drug. However, studies have shown that many of these drugs are treating issues that could be avoided by changing one’s lifestyle. So, the option is yours: try to improve your situation by taking drugs that could have adverse side effects and potentially leave you in a situation where symptoms may return, or cure yourself by changing the way you act, not putting anything harmful in your body and gaining knowledge that will last and benefit you for a lifetime?

At the Clinic we like to advocate for the latter. Rather than putting synthetic, man made drugs into your body or performing medical surgeries to improve your health, we believe in simply changing ones lifestyle for long-term results. This process begins with being proactive in tow aspects of your life. First, being considerate and conscious of what you eat and put into your body; and second, making an effort to burn calories through exercise. This simple formula, if effectively put to use, can turn your life around whether you are slightly overweight or suffer from type two diabetes. Ditch the drugs. Change your lifestyle.

What are your goals?

Before embarking on any journey or personal mission, it is absolutely necessary to create goals for yourself. These goals should be both long-term and short-term goals and should serve as motivation and a reminder of what you are trying to achieve. Your goals should be challenging, yet attainable, and hopefully steer you on your path to success.

Here are some of the cornerstone goals we like to preach:

set and reach goal concept

1) Get Fit

Thousands of years ago, our hunter-gatherer ancestors were forced to exert tons of physical energy every day. They had to do this in order to stay alive, and although it may not be the same today, everyone could use the benefits of being happier, leaner, and functionally younger.

2) Get Lean

When losing weight you want to make sure you are actually losing fat and not muscle. It is important to keep muscle because it burns more calories than fat and is essential for feel-good, IQ-elevating brain chemicals and protecting the skeletal structure from injury.

3) Eat Right

It is important to keep your diet to the basic essentials of vegetables, fruits, and lean proteins because these foods moderate the risk of high blood pressure, cancer, heart disease, and obesity. Similarly, stay away from saturated and trans fats, additives, tobacco products, and excessive alcohol.

4) Sleep Right

Start going to bed, waking up, and exercising at the same time everyday. There is a connection between sleep patterns, energy levels, and weight so if you aren’t getting enough sleep you will be at risk for higher weight gains.

Healthy Eating Habits

Healthy weight loss does not happen overnight. You have to break bad habits, learn new ones, and make better choices. One of the most important keys to healthy weight loss, and changing your eating habits is maintaining an accurate food and calorie journal.

Journalizing

Weigh and measure everything.

    food-journal

  • Food— keeping an accurate food journal helps you recognize what foods are energy boosters, and which foods make you feel lousy. This allows you to manage the triggers that cause you to engage in poor eating habits.
  • Calories—determine your calorie allotment, and try to divide your calories evenly into fourths. If you are having trouble counting calories, then you can use an online or mobile tool that measures them for you.

Journalizing these items gives you control of your eating habits. You’ll learn to master portion sizes, and balances your nutrition and calories. Do not cut corners. You are not doing your body any favors by skipping meals or lying on your food journal.

Plan

  • Meals—eat five to six times a day (three meals plus two to three snacks and anabolic shakes). By eating often, you reduce the chances of indulging in unhealthy foods because you are not always hungry.
  • Grocery Trips—
    • High Fiber Fruits & Vegetables: eat various different-colored vegetables each day to increase the variety of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that you’re eating.
    • Lean Protein
    • Nonfat Dairy Products

Planning your meal helps you stay on track of meeting your health goals. Once you have gotten the hang of journalizing your caloric intake, you’ll be able to go to the grocery store and make smarter choices.
