The Ultimate Guide Of Diabetes Weight Loss: Part 2
Diabetes Weight Loss
Diabetes Weight Loss is now a major concern in our society. Diabetes is a chronic, or lifelong, metabolic disorder that can be managed. Excess weight is very often part of the problem, increasing the risk of complications and complicating the treatment of the disorder overall, so much so that exercise and weight loss are fundamental parts of any diabetes management plan.
How to prevent diabetes
Diabetes could be prevented by 3 steps. The first is primary prevention. That disease is to prevent it before. The disease is in fact not to be. The need for social awareness. From an early age green vegetables, fish and low-fat starchy food intake will all be futile. High-calorie foods, fast food, soft drinks, processed foods, chocolate, ice cream, etc. should be avoided. Public awareness should be developed, such as against smoking, bad diet
However, before overhauling your whole life – and that is what it seems to be, at first – it would be advisable to take time to first assess it. For example, how is your health? Perhaps you suffer from hay fever or allergies, which require medications that must be taken into account when making your food and exercise plans. You may have physical limitations that will affect your ability to exercise, or food habits that will be difficult to change. If you smoke, that is a complication. If you are dealing with a lot of stress already, or with depression, you may need some help from your care management team in dealing with those issues. Conversely, if you have always felt wonderfully healthy and are used to the sense of freedom that feeling brings, this new diagnosis could threaten to be shattering. Don’t let it be. Remember, you have a manageable illness. Plan on staying positive and moving forward, and you’ll be on the right track.
How Environment Effect On Diabetes
Another area to take a look at is your environment, which impacts you in many ways. How about your home environment? – lots of good food at hand wherever you turn? Any room in the house for setting up exercise equipment? Do you live in a neighborhood where you can safely walk or jog? Are there fitness clubs or other health facilities nearby? Do you live in a rural setting or in an urban setting? Is smog or climate an issue? Do you have easy access to your medical team, or do you have to travel some distance to get to them? Consider your social environment, which often revolves around food, at home or with friends. Do you eat in front of the TV, for example, or eat unhealthy foods? Consider how your friends or family members may react to food changes, particularly if you are the one doing the food preparation. Consider also your work environment. Most of us eat both snacks and meals while at our workplace, and you need to be prepared for possible pitfalls. As you can see, location, climate, people, and availability of services are all among the issues that can play a part in the ease or difficulty with which you can make changes.
The last assessment you need to make is probably the most complex, and certainly the most essential: an assessment of yourself. There is so much stuff to learn! Your first reaction may be shocking, then perhaps denial – my diabetes isn’t as bad as lots of people’s – and even anger. You may feel defeated, especially if you’ve been trying to live a healthy lifestyle already. You may feel that your horizon has suddenly shrunk, that there are lots of things you’ll never get to do now. All of these feelings, and many more, may attack you during this critical adjustment period; rest assured: as you learn more, and do more, and start to take control of your diabetes instead of the other way around, your feelings will also sort themselves out, leading you to the point where you can make the final commitment – to accept the diagnosis and get on with your life. Celebrate the day when that happens; it will be the First Day of the Rest Of Your Life, and that is a good thing.
