A very common question that most people with diabetes ask is, “can diabetes be reversed or cured?” Well, there is no definitive answer to this.
Many experts will argue that it cannot but there are also many who say it can be…
Recent research indicates that a majority type 2 diabetes (non-insulin dependent diabetes) can be reversed and the use of medication can eventually be stopped with a proper diet, exercise, and following the right plan.
Even though this seems very simple to maintain a good diet, exercise, and follow a plan. But many people struggle with them….
What is the proper diet to follow? There are so so many diets for diabetics on the market today, it’s enough to make your head spin! The Atkins diet, the South Beach Diet, carbohydrate exchange list, and the list goes on and on…
The problem with many of the diabetics diets on the market is they’re not practical for the everyday person. Sure most people can follow them for a few weeks and a month but eventually they’ll revert back to their old ways.
Reversing type 2 diabetes comes down to finding a diet that is customizable to you and your lifestyle, also something that’s not going to break the bank when you go grocery shopping. You may have to try a few types of diets until you can stick with one that fits you.
The same goes for exercise! P90X, Crossfit, or Insanity may or may not be for you. You may enjoy biking or swimming or walking….
Whatever your flavor, you just need to pick something that you can enjoy and stick with for a long period of time. It comes down to just “get your body in motion.” You want to get your heart rate up, calories burning, and you breaking a sweat.
When you can combine the a diet that fits you and a workout that you ACTUALLY enjoy doing, you won’t have a problem sticking to the program. This can ultimately lead you to reversing the effects of diabetes or at least prevent it from getting worse.
