I’m sure you would be aware, as the topic of Diabetes is regularly reported by different of media, the incidence of Type 2 Diabetes is rapidly growing and this disease is now affecting people at much younger ages than in previous times.

Here are some facts that were stated in a recent study by the Centre for Disease Control and Prevention.

Whether injecting or taking drugs, the number of people being diagnosed with Diabetes is exponentially going through the roof.  Up 35% from 1998 to 2012.

 

  • The Overall Rate of Diabetes has increased by 35% from 1998-2012
  • Up to a 70% increase in Diabetes diagnosed among people under 40
  • Contributing factors for the increase are obesity and lack of physical activity among young people, due to modern lifestyle.

 

Did you know that Refined Sugar is one of the major foods that can cause diabetes? Regrettably, a large number of individuals are addicted to refined sugar; therefore the problem of avoiding it can be very difficult. Not only do external factors add to the development of this disease, also people lack motivation to make the necessary changes in their lives. There is a widespread mindset that people believe “it won’t happen to them!”

Refined Sugar is easy to spot. But Sugar in most cases is disguised in many foods where most people may say:
” these foods are good for them.”

For example bread, grains, pasta, noodles, white rice and pizza.
Over consumption of these foods is not recommended.

The increase in the number of people with Diabetes is very worrying and it is evident that if we do not become motivated and modify our lifestyle and diet, many of us will suffer health complications – like the onset of diabetes!

A high blood sugar level is also a leading factor in the acceleration of the aging process; much more rapidly than any other cause. It can contribute to the development of cellulite as well. In order to avoid the problems caused by diabetes and to slow down the aging process, it is essential that you reduce the consumption of foods and beverages that contain large amounts of refined sugar.

Why not be proactive now and take some preventative measures to reduce your risk of Diabetes?

Here are some helpful suggestions for you to implement:

Diabetes can strike at any age. Being overweight is a high risk factor. Fat normally accumulates because of incorrect  eating patterns.
  • Make changes to your lifestyle to reduce stress and tension – participate in regular exercise, like walking. The best time to do exercise is early in the morning, before breakfast. Take it slow in the beginning, with fifteen minute intervals until you become more fit. You may increase it then, up to 45 minutes three times a week. After you become stronger, you can combine walking with some stretching or resistance training exercises.
  • Exclude BAD fats from your diet and include some good fats like olive oil, coconut oil and ghee. These are all extremely healthy and beneficial for the body.
  • Focus on complete foods that are nutrient-dense and high in fibre. This includes most dairy products, salads, almost all plant foods, non-fat meat, fish and poultry.
  • Stay away from highly processed foods that are full of refined sugar and flour.
  • Always remember our 80/20 rule. When starting do the best you can 80% of the time.

If you think you may be at risk of diabetes or if you have a family history of this disease, please consult Vital Health as soon as possible.

By making the necessary dietary changes now, as mentioned above, you will be taking positive steps to better health and to decrease your risk of having diabetes.
