3 Steps For Starving Diabetes

Type 2 diabetes accounts for over 90% of diabetes cases and is synonymous with insulin resistance and metabolic syndrome. The over-saturation of sugar causes the body to produce more and more insulin. Eventually, increased amounts of insulin are required to convert glucose into energy, until the body becomes insensitive or resistant to the effect of insulin on glucose. This results in an excess of both insulin and glucose in the body.

Knowledge of the practice of starving type 2 diabetes is becoming more widespread in the medical community.

As you act to starve diabetes, you will notice the following benefits:

  • Fewer cravings
  • Greater alertness
  • Reduced lethargy
  • More regular and natural bowel movements
  • Increased energy
  • Higher performance during physical activity

1. Pay Attention to What You Eat

The first thing we need to do is engage our curiosity. Be a detective and gather information about what you are currently eating.

  • Read labels and discover the facts about what you are eating every day
  • Find out the carbohydrate content of your diet - all carbs convert to glucose
  • Educate yourself about healthy fats that will support and nourish your body
  • Discover satisfying ways to replace the sugary drinks
  • Search, try and collect low carb and keto recipes

While you gather information and begin to make changes, keep a journal of everything that goes into your mouth. There are lots of great apps for this if you prefer something portable and easy!

2. Discover the Power of Fasting

Japanese cell biologist, Yoshinori Ohsumi won the 2016 Nobel Prize in Medicine for his work on fasting and a process called autophagy. Put simply, fasting might be the most effective way for your body to take out the trash. It is also an effective way to reduce glucose levels and support weight loss and health improvement.

There are many types of fasting but here are a few of the most common for those new to the concept of fasting:

  • 16:8 – You get in all your meals within 8 hours and fast for the remaining 16 hours. This pattern of Intermittent Fasting is typically practiced daily, or almost daily.
  • 20:4 – You eat all your meals within 4 hours and fast for the remaining 20 hours. Those following this cycle tend to eat either one meal or two smaller meals during the feeding window.
  • 24-hour – You can choose to fast from dinner to dinner, or from lunch to lunch. Basically, this method only allows you to eat once a day. Generally, this fasting pattern is incorporated two to three times a week.
 

3. Choose Happy Health Moments

Researchers from Harvard Medical School report that good relationships are the most critical factor for health, happiness, and longevity. We all have heard the adage that the wealth of your 5 closest relationships is a strong predictor of your own wealth. Now we have medical research saying that your closest relationships are a credible predictor of your health, happiness, and longevity.

Make your journey a social one! The more you share with your friends, the more learning, discovery, joy, and purpose you will have. Tell others about your healthy and happy moments and learn about theirs for shared experiences of self-awareness, education, and discovery.
