Pre-diabetes and weight loss
Diabetes diet plan
When you’re either diabetic or pre-diabetic, the secret to creating the perfect diet lies in considering food’s Glycemic Index. The glycemic index of your foods plays a huge role in how your body will burn the sugars in the food you eat.
Foods are ranked from 0-100 on a scale. The higher the number, the more it will spike your blood glucose levels, and the worse it will be in terms of weight loss results.
Weight-loss and diabetes
If you are diabetic or pre-diabetic, your body processes insulin differently. You stop producing as much insulin and your body no longer processes all of the sugar that you consume. This means there is sugar left over in your blood (which is dangerous). Many foods contain sugar or turn into sugar during digestion. The Glycemic Index will help you to choose healthier options to decrease insulin reduction and (if you are Type 2) potentially reverse your diabetes.
Losing weight when you have diabetes takes a lot of discipline and self-knowledge. Cutting off unhealthy foods means understanding your natural cravings and needs and replacing them with healthy habits. It’s not about not having a snack; it is about eating one that won’t require excess insulin and stop your weight-loss process in its tracks.
