Attention: dried fruits, bananas, grapes, and mangoes are high in sugar. Eat them moderately. You can find more info on which types of food to avoid in this article.

Now, it’s your turn to embrace a new way of eating that will improve your health and beat diabetes!

Studies show that regular exercise not only improves insulin sensitivity but also aids in weight management and reduces the risk of cardiovascular complications. But before you put your sneakers and start running, talk to a professional as most people will struggle when they are trying to implement lifestyle changes such as exercises.

Many variables will impact in the better choice for  you, as weight, flexibility, joint health, spinal health and also personal taste.

To play it safe, start with a 15 minute daily walk and slowly ramp up until you can comfortably walk 45 to 60 minutes. Feel free to take your dog with you, if you have one – but if your dog stops to sniff every bush and hydrant, add a few minutes to your walk so you get proper exercises.

As per Harvard Health, “People with diabetes who walked at least two hours a week were less likely to die of heart disease than their sedentary counter- parts, and those who exercised three to four hours a week cut their risk even more.”

Don’t Forget to Stay Chill

The relationship between stress and diabetes is a complex and essential aspect of diabetes management. Stress, whether psychological or physical, triggers the release of certain hormones like cortisol and adrenaline. These hormones can affect blood glucose levels, causing them to rise, complicating the management of both Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes. Addressing and managing stress is a crucial part of a comprehensive approach to beat diabetes.

When stress goes unmanaged, it can lead to a vicious cycle. Elevated stress levels can cause higher blood sugar levels, leading to anxiety and further stress about maintaining control over the condition. This cycle can eventually lead to burnout, lessened adherence to medication and dietary protocols, and an overall decline in physical health.

The best ways to manage stress in diabetes vary between individuals but often involve regular physical exercise, which aids in glycemic control and mental well-being. Mindfulness and relaxation techniques such as deep breathing exercises, yoga, or meditation can also play a vital role in reducing stress. Support from friends, family, and healthcare professionals can foster a positive environment, enhancing emotional resilience.

In a nutshell: if you want to beat diabetes, you need to stay cool and take care of your mind and emotions as much as your diet and body.
