It’s no secret that your diet has a direct effect on the chances of you becoming a diabetic and even though I laid out a vegan diet consideration, I know that there are some people who just don’t think they can move down that route. For those of you that need to alter your diet for the better but aren’t willing to go vegan, there are other tips available to take steps towards the betterment of your health. For one, limit the amount of red meat and dairy in your diet, especially cheeses. Regardless of your weight, studies show that those who consume large amounts of these two types of foods are up to 4 times more likely to develop diabetes.
Although this may seem like common sense, increasing the amount of fruits and vegetables you consume can have a significant decrease in the likelihood of becoming diabetic. Start your day off with at least a piece of fruit every morning and stay away from those sugary juice drinks and cinnamon rolls.
