Diabetes

If you are overweight, your chances of getting Type 2 diabetes (adult onset diabetes) are higher than normal and the more obese you are the higher the risk.

Even gestational diabetes happens at a higher rate in people that are overweight than people that are closer to their ‘ideal’ weight.

I’ve read articles that state that approximately 90% of all Type 2 diabetics are overweight. This statistic is scary because the extra weight can cause serious health problems and these problems are often magnified when you add the complications from this disease.

If you are a diabetic, the best thing you can do for your health and disease is to find a way to get as close as possible to your ‘ideal’ weight while working with your medical professional.

Diabetic foods don’t have to taste nasty and you don’t have to feel like you are being cheated out of the good stuff. You might be surprised how good some of these dishes, appetizers and deserts can be.

You can start to take control of your weight by adding exercise and a diabetic diet you’ve worked out with your health care professional to your normal routine.

As you approach your ‘ideal’ weight, you might find that you’ll need less medication, be healthier longer, feel better, have more energy and just maybe have a little extra money in your pocket because you’re spending less on health care.

If you choose to ignore your excess weight, you risk the potential development of a condition called insulin resistance. This means your body has trouble responding to the insulin it needs to use sugar and glucose on a cellular level.

Diabetes is a disease that means you are in a fight for your life. It isn’t as dramatic as cancer or other life threatening diseases that are headline grabbers but it can be just as fatal if you fail to take control. You CAN live a long and healthy life that is high on QUALITY if you are willing to fight for that life.

Listen to your doctor’s orders and follow them. Educated yourself about your disease and learn how to naturally control it. Exercise and the right diabetic foods can play an important role in taking control. You have the strength to fight for a quality life but you might need to learn how to tap into that strength.

Let your diabetic condition be your motivation to take control of your diabetes so you can enjoy your life and your loved ones as much as possible for as long as possible. Diabetes and excess fat are not compatible so take action now.

You have been misinformed if you were told there is a diet for diabetes. Find out why there is no single diabetic diet for everyone.

You are unique and because of this your nutritional requirements are different from everyone else’s. Your medical history, physical condition, age and many other factors all play a role in your nutritional requirements.

A registered dietitian working with your medical professional should be the person you work with to create your personalized diet. Many diabetics get the diet for diabetes that they need then they are armed with the knowledge they need to take control of the disease.

Several diabetics I know use a combination of diabetic recipes and vegetarian recipes to help control their diabetes with their diets.

Let’s face the facts. A LOT of diabetic recipes are tasteless and boring and the same can be said for many vegetarian recipes. By experimenting with both and choosing foods you and your loved ones enjoy, you can live within the diet for diabetes you and your advisers created and enjoy your meals.

Diabetes is a condition you’ll have to manage for the rest of your life but it doesn’t have to be something that’s dreaded. You can use delicious diabetic recipes and vegetarian recipes to make healthy and tasty meals you and your loved ones will enjoy once you have worked with professionals to create your personalized diet for diabetes.
