Neal Barnard, M.D. tells us that 100 million Americans are diabetic or pre-diabetic due to obesity. Obesity and diabetes can be prevented and they can be reversed through behavior change. Dr. Barnard is the President of the Physicians Committee For Responsible Medicine (PCRM) and has a long history of nutrition and health research. Dr. Barnard’s data demonstrates that with a plant based diet, you can lose weight and prevent or even reverse diseases like diabetes. Never before in history have children been diagnosed with diseases like Type 2 diabetes that are typically seen in adults. As a nation, we simply cannot afford the health care for obesity and its related diseases – especially when it is preventable. Making the necessary lifestyle changes to prevent and reverse obesity is possible with weight loss hypnosis. I know it can be done. 17 years ago I lost over 100 pounds thanks to hypnosis for weight loss. You can too.
Diet and Diabetes: Recipes For Success
Dietary Approaches to Diabetes
Diabetes diets typically call for portion control, carbohydrate limits and, for those who are overweight, calorie restrictions. Fortunately, there is another way. Low-fat, plant-based diets are ideal for diabetes and the conditions associated with it, such as heart disease, weight gain, high cholesterol, and high blood pressure. And, they offer the nice advantage of not requiring any weighing or measuring of portions. Going hungry is not necessary!
The old approach had us cutting down on carbohydrates. It’s true that overly processed carbohydrates—those made with sugar or white flour, for example—are poor choices. However, delicious unprocessed or minimally-processed foods, such as potatoes, rice, oats, beans, pasta, fruit, and vegetables, were the main part of the diet in countries where people were traditionally fit and trim and where diabetes was rare. Unfortunately, highly processed carbohydrates and affordable meat and cheese dishes have moved in, and now we have a worldwide type 2 diabetes epidemic.
A low-fat vegetarian approach recognizes that whole-food carbohydrates are fine; it’s the fat in our diets that is the problem. New information suggests that fat in animal products and oils interferes with insulin’s ability to move glucose into the cells. Eating less fat reduces body fat. Less body fat allows insulin to do its job. However, choosing skinless chicken, skim milk and baked fish is not enough of a change for most people to beat diabetes.
The fact that 100 million Americans are diabetic or pre-diabetic due to obesity should alarm you – perhaps even scare you into action. To me, it is unconscionable that we have done this to ourselves. Obesity and obesity related diseases like Type 2 diabetes are preventable and reversible and you can have an impact.
What can you do? You can start voting with your wallet. You can get the junk food and processed food out of your house and only buy real plant based food that supports your health. You can stop taking your kids to fast food joints like McDonald’s. If no one buys the food that makes us fat and sick, they will stop making it.
Hypnosis for weight loss can make it easy to choose vegetables, whole grains and fruit. Self hypnosis can make it easy to be more active and get up and move.
