Step #1: Cut sugar out of your diet!
Our sugar-rich diets are the primary culprit of diabetes and obesity in the modern world. We’re not talking whole fruits here. Candy bars, cereals, sweets, and soft drinks are some of the worst offenders. Get in the habit of reading nutrition labels so you know what you’re eating.
Step #2: Eat Whole, Unprocessed Foods
Whole grains, fruits, vegetables, lean means and fish should make up the vast majority of your diet. Don’t be shy with herbs and spices either! These natural flavorings have wonderful health benefits.
Step #3: Get the right nutrients
Whole Foods are rich in the nutrients your body needs. Try to focus on eating foods that help regular blood sugar and improve your insulin response: Omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin D, chromium, and lots of dietary fiber.
Step #4: Get regular exercise
Exercise is a wonderful way to lose weight, increase your energy levels, and improve your body’s insulin response. Start with a brisk 30-minute walk 5-6 days a week. Once you’re doing well with that, move up to hikes, running, stair climbing, cycling, rowing, cross-country skiing, or swimming.
Step #5: Get enough sleep
Did you know that just one night of poor sleep is enough to increase insulin resistance in a healthy person? These side effects are multiplied in people with diabetes.
Start with a regular sleep schedule: go to bed and get up at the same times every day. Avoid backlit screens for 90 minutes before bed. You can also try herbal teas, white noise, and essential oils to help you relax.
Step #6: Control Stress
Chronic stress is strongly linked to inflammation, a contributing factor in type 2 diabetes. Engage in healthy means of relaxing and lowering stress levels, such as yoga or meditation.
Step #7: Measure your progress
With actual measuring tape! Bodytape measurements are one of the best ways to track progress and are a much more accurate measurement of progress than the scale.
