5 Tips for Preventing Prediabetes From Developing Into Type 2 Diabetes, Image:

Many of us walk around with pre-type 2 diabetes. It’s called insulin resistance or metabolic syndrome. Our bodies lose the ability to metabolize all the refined carbs in grains, cereals, fast foods and packaged foods. Fasting insulin above 8 (tested on a routine blood test), fasting glucose above 100 and elevated HA1c (above 5.6), indicate prediabetes.

Also, abdominal fat and high triglycerides indicate a fatty liver. Triglycerides go up as carbohydrate consumption goes up until the body can’t process the offending foods any longer. The ensuing inflammation can lead to type 2 diabetes, heart disease, high cholesterol, joint pain high blood pressure and digestive disorders (GERD). These conditions are completely preventable!

Preventing, Reversing and Managing Diabetes…Naturally
No Carbs

How to win back your health:
1 - Cut fast foods, sodas and other sugary treats from your diet
2 - Eliminate all grains and that includes oatmeal and all cereals
3 - Increase protein to include on average 4 oz. with each meal
4 - increase fresh or lightly steamed seasonal vegetables
5 - Eat small amounts of seasonal fruits that are low glycemic, i.e. apples, berries and pears

The urge to eat high carb foods is coming from the please centers in the brain. People have to be willing to go through a little pain to regain control over what they are eating that will reduce their inflammation and return to a state of health.
