Essential Diet Tips to Defeating Diabetes

At some point, we lost focus on curing & reversing diabetes and just settled for sustainability. For many countries in our world, diabetes is now an epidemic, and families are losing their children & loved ones to a preventable disease. I remember taking a child nutrition & cooking course with Dr. Maya Adams of Stanford University, where I learned how severe this illness has become. That course, "Just Cook for Kids" educates communities about how to prevent diabetes, and teaches a variety of diets, foods and healthy meals that help reverse diabetes.

The programming we've endured makes us damage our bodies, and it gets worse when we think something may be wrong health-wise. When people's gut instincts tell them they have to get their health in check, panic seems to set it, and the reaction that ensues is to drink even more alcohol, or eat even more sweets, instead of visiting their physician. It's programming from decades of elite branding and high-level marketing techniques by successful food companies, often specifically targeted towards the impulse-reward sector of our brain, while the quality of their food declined into what we now know as processed foods.

Prolonged high blood sugar levels can cause diabetes, with genetics as another common factor. You're diagnosed with diabetes when you stop releasing and responding to standard amounts of insulin. There are 2 kinds of diabetes - Type 1 Diabetes & Type 2 Diabetes. Type 1 Diabetes is usually diagnosed before 20 years of age, and Type 2 Diabetes affects a lot of adults over 40 years old. Let's explore some symptoms that may help you recognize diabetes, and change poor habits to help prevent being affeted altogether.

Type 1 Diabetes Symptoms

  • wounds & bruises heal unbelievably slow
  • a constant thirst for water
  • numbness in hands, feet or limbs
  • shortness of breath
  • dizzy spells and fainting

Type 2 Diabetes Symptoms
  • dark patches begin to show in the creases of the body such as armpits and the back of the neck (acanthosis nigricans)
  • constant itchy & dry skin
  • numbness & tingling in feet & hands
  • unexplained weight gain
  • reproductive problems such as erectile dysfunction

If you feel you have one or more symptoms, then go get tested for diabetes as soon as possible so you at least know how to correct it. The human body is a beautiful & powerful temple that houses your spirit. The body can do a number of miraculous things, including healing itself. Let's explore together how the correct foods can help achieve the miracle of healing the human body.

We Must Essentially Change our Views on Food
Let's break this term "processed foods" down so you can see a person's path to becoming a diabetic. It may help us brainstorm ways in which we can help our children prevent this illness in the near future. Processed foods are foods that have been drained of their natural vitamins & minerals and pumped back up with fats, chemicals, and preservatives to satisfy your taste buds and to keep for longer. They then pump the foods back up with artificial vitamins & minerals, the same kind that you take in supplements, to save the companies more money. Often, when eating processed foods, you're consuming something with hardly any nutritional value, and inserting yourself into the vicious cycle of diabetes as an epidemic.

If you've been diagnosed with any type of diabetes or at an early prevention stage, remove these from your everyday diet.

Food and Drink to Remove from Diet

Alcohol: of every kind, especially beer. It's been a great run and now it's time to hang up the legendary status, especially if you already have diabetes.

All dairy products, because quite simply, milk has been scientifically proven to harm the body. A cow's milk is designed by nature to take a calf to a 400-pound animal as quickly as possible for survival. The calf doesn't even drink its mother's milk its entire life, what makes us think we should?

1. Banish refined sugar

Sodas and mixed fruit juices are the worst for you. They spike your blood sugar levels to dangerous levels every time you consume them. Honey is a better option, but should be used in extreme moderation until you have your health under control.
Remove grains: I recommend removing all types of grains (especially wheat, which contains gluten) for 120 days so your system can maximize the natural healing.

Stop using conventional cooking oil: We're specifically speaking of hydrogenated oils such as soybean oil, vegetable oil, canola oil, and cottonseed oil because they're all processed oils.

2. All GMO foods

Canola & corn from GMO stock has been scientifically proven to contribute to kidney and liver disease, which is a "no Bueno" for people dealing with diabetic issues.

3. Food to Add to Diet

Eat fiber-rich foods: You're aiming to consume more than 40 grams of fiber per day. Fiber-rich foods help slow down the absorption of glucose. Fiber-rich foods that come to mind are avocados, blueberries, oatmeal or dragon fruit (dragon fruit in moderation).

Eat food that is high in magnesium: Research has shown that magnesium deficiency is often related to diabetes. Spinach, almonds and pumpkin seeds are high in magnesium and great in helping lose weight.

4. Eat chromium-rich foods

Chromium naturally balances out your blood glucose levels by strengthening your body's glucose tolerance factor. Pure grape juice has 8 micrograms of chromium per cup while a cup of mashed potatoes and 1 cup of mashed potatoes has 3 micrograms.

5. Eat Clean Protein

Great sources are egg whites, lentils, tofu, and fish high in omega-3 fats.

Knowledge has been passed down for generations through language. Just look at this English phrase "You are what you eat." The food you put into your body is your life's fue,l and if you're having diabetic issues, it may be from poor eating habits. The great news is your body is used to making miracles happen, but you need to treat it well so it can heal. This primarily means feeding your body the freshest, and healthiest foods you can.

When you are fixing diabetes related illnesses, try to remember not to over-season your food when you cook. Excessive sodium adds up, and in this case, less is better. Correcting our eating habits is a big part of correcting diabetes, and we have to be aware that we're doing so. If your stage of diabetes is 3 or more, then believe in yourself and your physician at all times and your diet has probably already been changed for you. Those in the lower stages or show signs of it coming on, have to accept that your body is sending you some very important messages that you can't ignore and it's time to change your diet & lifestyle. The biggest fight of our lives is the fight for our lives.

We have to be aware because the foods forced upon us by monopolized food corporations have our great health as least important. We have to correct our own diets because there is no one coming to help us get healthy. At some point, we must forget sustainability and actually begin reversing & curing diabetes.
