If you’re reading this right now,chances are you or someone you know is thinking about making a change. And I want to be the first to let you know that all is not lost. Studies have shown that out of ten people who are exposed to this condition, nine of them can easily prevent its occurrence.This can be made possible by the following 3 simple exercises that I’m going to share with you today. Please understand that by no means am I  a Physician. So before you start any exercise routine, I strongly suggest that you consult with your doctor to be sure the exercise you choose is safe and appropriate for your condition whether it’s diabetes, type 2 diabetes,or hypertension. With that said, let’s get started…

 

Walking…

 

Walking in general has many benefits in regards to reducing any risk of heart disease and lowering blood sugar levels. If you’re able to walk in the morning it’s great because it helps to keep you sharp for the day in my opinion. However if you’re unable to walk in the morning, at least walk around your neighborhood for about 30 minutes a day for at minimum three times a week. You don’t have to speed walk, just something as simple as a light stroll can get the blood flowing and over time you’ll increase.It’s important that for every step that you take, that you learn to inhale through your nose and exhale through your mouth. This helps with clearing your mind as well,releasing all of the carbon dioxide in your system.

 

Yoga…

Learning the specific fluid movements of Yoga not only builds flexibility and balance, but it also promotes relaxation. Which is perfect for people who suffer from diabetes, or any other chronic illnesses. There are multiple poses that you can learn that if you perform them daily, will start you on your journey to complete health. I’m going to share four of them now. And they are…
The Bow Pose,Head to Toe pose,Spinal Twist Pose and the Plough pose.

 

Swimming…

Finally, if you’re unable to walk or if the movements of yoga maybe just way to challenging for you? Don’t worry, because this final exercise will certainly help you with diabetes prevention. Swimming will relax your muscles as well as provide no pressure to your knees, elbows,and other parts of your body that may give you any trouble.Just about anyone can do it, so it doesn’t matter if you’re young or old and if you’re swimming on a regular basis you will lower blood sugar levels and cholesterol as well. Did you also know that just by swimming for 10 minutes for three days a week can also burn calories and tone your body as well?

3 Steps For Diabetes Prevention

  Are you’re at risk for diabetes? Do you or someone you love is either overweight or have a family history of this disease? If you answered yes to one or both of these questions, it’s imperative that you take certain steps to prevent any future issues. Because if proper steps of prevention aren’t taken seriously, something as simple as what you eat or drink could potentially become hazardous for you or someone you love. The most important thing for you to realize is that it’s never too late to make a change and that you have the power to control it. Which is  exactly why I’m going to share 3 simple steps you can take, recommended by the American Diabetes Association for you to prevail at preventing diabetes.

Step 1: Physical Activity and Exercise

Being Physically active as well as incorporating cardio exercises will not only help you look and feel better, but it will also regulate your blood sugar levels. Studies have shown that the more  excess weight you have, the more resistant your muscle and tissue cells become to your own insulin hormone.  If your blood sugar levels are too high for a long period of time,then your body builds an insulin resistance. Causing the body to not convert the food you eat into energy. Two of some of the best exercises to start you on your journey to prevention are Aerobic and resistance training.

Step 2: The Benefits of Fiber in Your Diet

 

There are a number of benefits you can receive by having a healthy amount of fiber in your daily diet. Fiber is known to slow the absorption of sugar in the body  and reduce the risk of heart disease. Eating foods such as nuts, seeds, vegetables, beans, and fruit provide you with the best sources of fiber you can find. Fiber also helps you lose weight because of its ability to make you feel full. It is recommended by the  American Diabetes Association that people are to consume 25 to 50 grams of fiber each day and though I know that this can be a challenge. However this isn’t impossible to achieve.

 

Step 3: Don’t Fall for Fad Diets

 

Finally, I want to address the many Fad and false diets out there promising magnificent results, yet, in the long run you’re stuck throwing thousands of dollars down the drain. Anything from low Carb to Juice diets to Keto diets and many more  may help you lose weight, but it is yet unknown how these fad diets can have an effect on a person who suffers from diabetes. Any time you’re excluding an entire food group which is what most fad diets explain to you , it can have a negative effect on someone who is at risk of diabetes. Proper diet planning as well as a consistent workout regimen, will show better results in weight loss and diabetes prevention in the long run.
