As a health advocate for almost 40 years, I’m happy to raise awareness of diabetes… and ways to help prevent it! Since November is National Diabetes Awareness Month, now is the perfect time for all of us to take some simple steps to help prevent this chronic disease, which affects so many of us. And although genetics plays a factor in Type 2 diabetes, the good news is that lifestyle tactics can go a loooong way in helping to prevent it! It’s all about keeping healthy and watching what you eat. Prevention is key!
It’s important to know that even if you’re in a healthy weight range, you could still be carrying dangerous belly fat – not the little pooch just above your jeans, but visceral fat lying deep within the abdomen that wraps your internal organs. This type of fat interferes with your metabolism and can damage your health, putting you at risk for serious conditions such as Type 2 diabetes.
But don’t throw your hands up in despair! It’s best to take action, by making sure you go to your doctor, checking your blood sugar and A1C, and sticking to a healthy lifestyle. There’s a lot of people that are pre-diabetic and knowing where you stand, there’s ways you can help change your lifestyle for the better. We all need a wake up call sometimes. I put together a diabetic-friendly nutrition plan with the top nutritionists of our country, in my 10-Week Plan. It will help you ease in to a healthier lifestyle which can help reverse the weight gain that contributed to your diagnosis.
