For years people have asked can anything be done about diabetes. From doctors and physicians to the poor chap struggling to pay there bills, who’s been told by his doctor he has diabetes. All are looking for some help and want to know what to do next.
Can you stop it?
The answer is in most cases yes!
But is it as simple as taking a pill or magic a potions and everything is fine?? I think we all know the answer to that is no.
But it's not as hard as you may think, all it takes is a bit of knowledge and the will implement what you've learned.
Why Diabetes is so common now
We are now going to talk about the reasons and courses of diabetes.
Why it’s so we may find it hard to see how we can be cured.
What you can do about making a change so you dictate how to live your life and not have diabetes rule you.
A few years ago, I was told by my doctor that I was pre-diabetic, and that soon I would have diabetes. There didn't seem to be much I could do about it. The doctor gave me a diet sheet and some pills and that was that. My wife quickly told the kids who said “I told you so”. They all started to tell me all the things I should and shouldn't be eating drinking etc. To be honest I know my kids were doing what they thought was right, but I just felt like giving up. Saying to myself, "that was that I've had a good innings" and "let what will be, be!"
After thinking long and hard about my situation I decided that I don’t give up that easy, and there must be something I could do to improve my lot in life.
And guess what, there's loads of things you can do to fight diabetes. Not only can you stop diabetes you can reverse it! You can lead a life without having to inject yourself everyday, or living in fear of all the horrible things that are associated with diabetes.
First things first, how can you reverse diabetes? if like myself you live in the western world, you will probably know that our diet although calorie rich I.e. we're not staving by any stretch of the imagination, isn't really the healthiest diet out there. We eat far too much sugar! And that sugar isn't just what we put in our coffee. It's in everything; bread, cakes, biscuit's, cereal, fizzy drink and the list goes on (I don’t even want to get into processed and packet food). And it’s the sugar that is causing all the problems with our health.
Where to start
For a long time have you been told that fat is bad for you? The answer is yes. But the experts have changed their minds. And after far too long have come to realise that we need the fat in our diet, and not the sugar. For as long as I can remember the experts have been telling us the wrong thing. Much of the so called healthy food has had all of the fat taken out of it because of this wrong thinking. Then to make things worse that fat has then been substituted for sugar. Knowing this explains so much; you go on a diet lose a few pounds and the next thing you're fatter than ever.
We have to realise that saying we are what we eat, is true. And what we put into our body really does matter and has consequences. Our body uses food as fuel, breaks it up and uses what it has to keep us working properly. Protein for helping us to rebuild our cells. Fat to keep your cells in good shape. And if we are eating carbs our body uses them as fuel to give us energy when we need it. But is it the case that we need carbs (sugar) in the amounts that we consume it these days? NO is the simple answer!
