Introduction Want to Cure Diabetes Click Here Are you familiar with the quotation “Health is wealth” Well most of us already encountered this since childhood. Thus you must have heard it from your parents back when they scold you after skipping your lunch or in your T.L.E. teacher lecturing the class about health. This is a basic reminder for each and every one to be healthy. As what they say health is more important than wealth. It’s a common knowledge that you can always make money as long as you are healthy and we need to be healthy to enjoy wealth. But what would likely happen if all your plans in life particularly making money plans will be ruined by some fatal diseases And one thing that would come up into my mind when I say fatal disease is Diabetes. Diabetes is established by long persistence and a disease that occurs when the body’s pancreas can no longer supply enough insulin or when the body does not productively use the insulin. Just so you know Insulin is an essential hormone that manages blood sugar. The continuous rising of blood sugar is commonly known as Hyperglycemia overtime leads to serious damage especially in nerves and blood vessels and many systems in our body. An estimated 3.4 million people worldwide died from aftermaths of fasting high blood sugar in 2004 the same number of deaths has been recorded in 2010. Thus 347 million people worldwide were diagnosed with Diabetes. As a matter of fact in accordance to the estimates in the Causes of death 2008 update there were 57 million deaths in the world in 2008 Diabetes was recorded in 9th place in the leading causes of death with 1.26 million estimated deaths and with percentage rate of 2.2 . There are 2 common types of diabetes: Type 1 and Type2 diabetes. Type 1 diabetes formally known as insulin-dependent childhood-onset or juvenile is characterized by lacking of production of insulin and requires daily management of insulin. The cause of this type of diabetes is not known and there is none yet any current knowledge that considers this preventable. Constant hunger weight loss changes in vision and fatigue excessive excretion of urine polyuria thirst polydipsia is the symptoms that may occur suddenly. Type 2 diabetes formerly called adult-onset or non-insulin-dependent occurs from the body’s ineffective use of insulin. 90of people with diabetes around the world are with Type 2 diabetes and is mostly the result of physically inactive and excess body weight. Symptoms maybe the same to those of Type 1 diabetes. This type may be diagnosed several years after onset once complications have already arisen. You know now what diabetes is its types and how fatal it is. This book is particularly a cookbook and a meal planner for you to have a splendid diet to overcome diabetes. The first chapter will introduce to a lifestyle change. The

Physiotherapists somehow know better as to what are the best activities that suits you. Make it a point to work out as advised regularly. You must eat healthy. You must reduce sugar and saturated fat intake eat a healthy diet of between 3 and 5 servings of fruit and vegetable a day. You must have a special meal plan to avoid diabetes just as low fat food moderate in salt and in sugar with meals based on whole grain foods vegetables and fruit saturated and trans-fat. Diabetic and "dietetic" foods generally offer no special benefit. Most of them still raise blood glucose. The food you eat gets digested and broken down into a sugar your bodys cells can use. Glucose one of the simplest forms of sugar levels are usually more expensive and can also have a laxative effect if they contain sugar alcohol sweeteners that are capable of producing an increase in blood glucose level compared to other carbohydrates. Also their calorie content per gram can reach up to 2 calories and this includes hydrogenated starch erythritol lactitol isomalt mannitol maltitol and more. Ask your dietician for your healthy diet. Also practice healthy cooking methods such as grilling microwaving foods and steaming rather than frying or roasting your food. Most especially do not smoke. Avoid using tobacco. It will only increase the risk of cardiovascular diseases and lung complications. Remember “Cigarette smoking is dangerous to your health”. You must also control the level of your blood sugars. You must keep it within a healthy range. You can also write down what you have eaten on a daily basis. You must track your overall weight gain and weekly rate of gain. Discuss with your doctor the amount of weight that is healthy for you and try to maintain that. Avoid unhealthy habits. You should avoid drinking alcohol. Too much drinking of alcohol will lead to heart failures. You must remember the tips and all the way to overcome diabetes. Avoid eating and drinking foods with too much sugar content like fruit drinks cake muffin jam energy drinks sports drinks regular soda fruit punch sweet tea and other sugary drinks. These can provide several hundred calories in just one serving and will raise blood glucose.

So if you really want to overcome diabetes you should be fit and practice healthy life style. Physical activities and exercises includes anything that gets a person moving. Exercise makes it easier to control diabetes. Simple ways of exercising are walking dancing or working in the yard. You don’t have to run in marathon if you want to exercise or joining track in field. The real thing is to get active and stay active by doing stuffs you enjoy from biking to swimming and also walking in public parks with friends. In addition the benefits of exercising are undeniable such as leaner stronger muscles stronger bones better control of weight more energy and lower blood pressure. If you have not exercise for a long time or if you are not as active as you should be talk to the doctor before exercising. You should make sure that you are ready to be active. Research has recorded that physical activities can lower your blood pressure and blood sugar raises good cholesterol and lowers bad cholesterol enhance your body’s capacity to consume insulin prevents heart failure and keeps the bone and joints strong and flexible helps you lose weight reduces your body fat gives you more energy and reduces stress levels. It is preferable to slowly increase you physical activities to prevent your body from being shock. You must also consider your limits especially the other diabetes-related complications. Just like what I have said consulting a doctor is necessary so you would know what would be the best exercise that allows you to get in shape that does not push your body too far and that fits with your condition. How frequent Through your doctor’s help you can decide when will be the best time of day for you to exercise. Researchers have learned that when you exercise it draws glucose for fuel out in our bloodstream helps control glucose in blood. This is effective not just during exercise but until 24 to 72hours after tedious exercise. With this fact experts suggest people with diabetes to exercise at least 5 days a week. If time is available you can freely exercise daily. It gives you the assurance that the muscles burn out sugar from the blood continuously. It is also a good consideration if you exercise 30 minutes per session. Some Italian researchers who followed large number diabetics found out that people with diabetes who got 38 minutes of exercise attain a significant blood sugar benefits. Those who spent 83 minutes did even better. It would likely mean that the longer the time you spent in exercising will give you additional benefits including the greater chance of losing weight.

To Cure Diabetes in 21 Days Click Here Chapter 3: Key Knowledge On Food Increasing the daily coffee consumption may decrease the risk of diabetes. Also choose high-fiber diet. It is vital to only choose carbs that are filled with fiber. For example eat brown rice instead of white rice. Prefer the whole-wait pasta over the regular pasta. You should also avoid the kinds of white potatoes like mashed and fries and rather eat the sweet potatoes which include cauliflower mash or yam. You probably are also fond of sugary breakfast cereal but that’s also a big no. You can eat breakfast cereal with high fiber as an alternative for that. Do not eat cornflakes but bran flakes. Do not eat corn but leafy greens or peas. Do not eat starchy vegetables. You must eat beans and fruits such as peaches berries apples and pears. Also fruits like bananas mangoes and papayas would likely have a lower glycemic index than classic desserts. Before going on let me first introduce you to some of the super foods that are very vital in erasing your diabetes. All of these provide the main nutrients needed to be present in your diet such as fiber magnesium potassium and vitamins A C E. These are also significantly low in glycemic index. These foods MUST be present in your diet. Sweet Potatoes. This is already mentioned above. It’s the powerhouse of vitamin A and fiber. You can replace your regular potatoes with this one as lower GI alternative. Berries. Any berry will do: blueberries strawberries etc. Berries are filled with antioxidants fiber and vitamins. You can alternate it with a non-fat yogurt as your dessert. Always include a berry in your daily diet. Beans. Be it a navy a pinto black beans or a kidney these are all very high in fiber. Did you know that beans can offer you one-third of your daily requirement in just a mere one-half cup It is also an essential source of magnesium and potassium. These are also designated as starchy vegetables. Just one-half cup of any bean is already equal to the protein of an ounce of meat. Nuts. There is a misconception wherein many people think that nuts are very high in fat. This is the reason why it is usually ignored in the table. But the real fact is the fat it contains is the unsaturated fats which as a matter of fact very good for the health. Citrus Fruit. Our body needs a certain dosage if Vitamin C and soluble fiber. And these can be greatly found in fruits like oranges limes lemons and grapefruit. Tomatoes. Be it in a sauce pureed or raw tomatoes are very rich in important nutrients such as vitamin C E and iron.

Milk. Of course you should prefer the ones that are fat-free. Milks also yogurts are a great source of vitamin D that is very important in having a good health including managing diabetes. Whole Grains. These are the best sources of fiber and potassium. One example is the pearled barley. Green Vegetables. We all know it. Vegetables are the best foods in the world especially the green leafy ones. Vegetables will always be the powerhouse of all vitamins and minerals. The recommended vegetables that should be included in your daily diet are kale spinach and collards. Salmon. Omega-3 is a very essential acid for our health. The downside is we cannot produce our own omega-3 so it should be consumed through diet. Fortunately there is the Salmon fish. It’s very high in Omega-3 fatty acids. This is a perfect addition to your meals. Tilapia. This is another kind of fish. This is rich in lean protein. You can prepare this anyway that you want. Choices are grilling baking or roasting. This is best paired with vegetables and beans. Perfect for diabetes. Oatmeal. It greatly decreases the risk of diabetes by an amazing 35 to 42 percent. Oatmeal is very rich in whole grain and fiber that is why it can do such. This is also very important for your heart. The soluble fiber which is greatly found in oatmeal is excellent in slowing down the absorption of glucose of your stomach. Glucose is the one who keeps control of blood-sugar levels. Avocado. This is a miracle fruit. Avocados are high in monounsaturated fats which are scientifically designated as the healthiest fats available. This can greatly improve your sensitivity for insulin for Type 2 diabetes and at the same time improve the health of your heart. Egg whites. These are very common in the dining table but only few know that egg whites are a powerful tool in both controlling and preventing diabetes particularly the Type 2 diabetes. A conventional egg white holds a total of 16 calories and 4 grams of protein which makes it excellent for the blood sugar control. Non-starchy vegetables. Perfect examples of such are turnips tomato squash radishes okra mushrooms leeks cucumbers eggplants cauliflower carrots cabbages broccolis bamboo shoots and asparagus to name a few. You can have up to 5 servings per day. And if you can take more then it’s better It is always good to have more vegetables in our system. Make vegetables the dominant part of your of diet and you’ll kiss goodbye diabetes sooner than you think What to eliminate in your diet Quit eating sweet and high-cholesterol foods. Processed grains such as white rice will worsen the complications of diabetes. Vegetable are good but not those canned vegetables. When you are cooking vegetables don’t ever mix it with lots of cheese and butter. Also eliminate the sauerkraut because it is filled with lots of sodium which is basically not good for diabetics.

Do not eat fried meats higher-fat cuts of meat such as ribs pork bacon regular cheeses poultry with skin fried tofu and beans prepared with lard these are high- cholesterol foods. More examples of fried foods that must ignored are fried tortillas and French fries. Jelly and preserves sweetened applesauce fruit juice drinks chewy fruit rolls fruit drinks fruit punch and regular jam are obviously sweet and high-sugar foods. Fruits that are canned are commonly rich in sugar syrup so avoid that also. You can eat cereals but only choose the healthy ones and avoid those kinds that contain lots of sugar. Eliminate bad fat MSG pasta added sugar pheasant parsnip chocolate alcohol yam carrot and consumer packaged ingredients. Remember good food choice is really essential in overcoming diabetes. It matters a lot. How often should you eat You should eat in accordance to diet and should eat at exact time if you don’t the blood sugar plummets. Delays for just even half an hour can have catastrophic results. It is said that the desired number for diabetic to eat per day is 4-6. You should eat smaller than usual person to keep energy levels up. The foods you eat may have been different when it comes to calorie content should always be controlled and should take fewer calories than usual eating in a full plate. Just like for example a saucer of rice will have fewer calorie content than a larger plate. Even if you are taking medicines for diabetes and still you are eating too much carbohydrate would be useless because it will still result to high blood sugar. A person with diabetes should eat the same amount of carbohydrates every meal. You should not skip a meal like what I have said the blood sugar plummets and will cause tissue damage. Just think that undergoing diet is not fasting. How much should you eat Eating right is essential for the management and treatment of diabetes. You must eat in 4-6 times a day in smaller portions to manage blood sugars. There is no exact amount of food intake per day but the best thing to do is consult a dietician. In common knowledge person with diabetes should limit the sweet and salty foods and carbohydrates. You should limit your total carb intake per day between 45 and 65 percent. In lame man’s say consuming 31oo calories per day means you should not exceed 2015 calories. You should also aim to eat at least 130 grams of carbs every day. A carb-friendly meal is less than or equal to30g/serving. A low-carb meal is less than or equal to 15g/serving and very low-carb meal is less than or equal to 3g/serving. These measurements will keep you in track to your diet. These are just the basic stuffs that you should know when it comes to your food intakes. Now you have the long list on what to eliminate in your diet. Although some of these foods are your favorites and it’s so sad to know that you must not eat them the bright side is it’s still for your own good sake. Imagine feeling the short happiness you’ll have in eating this prohibited foods when sooner or later you will have to face the unfortunate consequences of it. Well the best thing you can do for now about those foods which you shouldn’t eat is to make yourself a deal. Why don’t you have a truce with yourself You can make a contract with yourself that for a period of time you must not eat any of those foods that must be eliminated from your diet.
