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.

The Clinic by Dr. H teaches patients to live healthier lives as opposed to giving people a quick fix. Make things happen this summer and put your health first. Click here to book your stay.

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.

Improve Health With a New Lifestyle

A new study by the British Medical Journal (BMJ) was released recently and it proves that exercise changes everything. The study suggests that although we push for moderate to vigorous exercise, “any movement has the potential to forestall illness and disability.” That is to say that even light exercise is beneficial to one’s overall health.

Physical activity is important for people of all ages. This is true because joints require motion to maintain their strength, which reduce the chance of fractures.

Dorothy Dunlop from the Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine in Chicago said, “Even among people who cannot do very much moderate activity, there was a strong benefit to participating in light activity to reduce the risk of developing disability as well as disability progression.”

The benefits of exercising even a little are numerous (as shown in the infographic below). However, for people that want to lose weight and maintain a healthy lifestyle we recommend vigorous exercise accompanied by a healthy diet.

Cheat Days? Diet Pills? Working Out With Pain?

Throughout your journey to becoming a fit and healthy individual, you are bound to have many questions. Are there easier ways to achieve my goal? Are there any quick shortcuts I can take? How do I get around certain obstacles? Keep reading to find out a few of the most common questions to hopefully aid you along your journey.

skewersOne of the most basic and highly desired questions is whether or not to have cheat days. You make a conscious effort to eat right all week long and you want to know if you can treat yourself to some ice cream for your hard work. However, if you are thinking like this, you are not on the right track. You do not want to consider all the healthy food you eat as a burden and unhealthy foods as a reward. Why would something that is bad for you be a reward! Instead you need to adapt the view that you are changing your lifestyle and creating long lasting healthy habits, not just a temporary phase. At the same time, keep in mind that having a cheat day won’t destroy your progress, just as having one good meal isn’t going to be that beneficial either. However, remember that a single cheat meal can often lead to a binging episode that can be a sever detriment to your success and results.

Another common question has to do with the use of diet pills. Diet pills have been a serious source of controversy and for very good reasons. You have to keep in mind that these pills are legitimate drugs and with any drug, there will be side effects, often times negative consequences. Not that diet pills are extremely unsafe, but their theoretical benefits do not outweigh the potential risk they create. A regimen with healthy eating and consistent exercise will be much more beneficial to you in the short term and long term.

At one point or another, you have experienced an injury. The question is how does one go about their exercise routine while simultaneously managing their pain? Such a situation requires extra effort from an individual. You need to make sure you properly warm up and cool down. This includes applying heat to the affected area before exercise and applying ice after exercise. Make sure to modify your exercises as your injury dictates but do not let your injury stop you from exercises all together.

Ruben Studdard’s Inspirational Attitude

This week on The Biggest Loser, Ruben Studdard received devastating news regarding his health. Although he lost an exceptional 21 pounds his first week to bring down his weight to 452, tests run by Dr. H regarding Ruben’s insulin and blood sugar levels revealed frightening information. Dr. H was forced to disclose to Ruben that he has been clinically diagnosed with Type 2 Diabates.

Although receiving such news was extremely overwhelming to Ruben, he has decided to react positively and continue to work even harder than before. “I am a champion,” the American Idol winner explains, “I am very determined to reverse my prognosis,” and with his positive attitude it looks like he might just do so. Dr. H explained that such a diagnosis is completely reversible, however it would take extraordinary hard work and perseverance, something that a motivated Ruben seems he is ready for.

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.
