I’m excited to share with everyone that I recently got my certification as a
diabetic nurse educator.
Diabetes is on the rise. 1 in 4 Americans over 60 has type 2 Diabetes
This can easily be changed! Studies have shown that with a proper diet diabetes can be reversed in as little as 8 weeks.
We all know what the main causes of diabetes — SUGAR.
Did you know that the average American eats more sugar in one day than our ancestors did during an entire lifetime?
Sugar is the cause of most illnesses and diseases.
Sugar has a very negative effects on our body. Immediately it effects our moods and hormones. I’m sure you have all experienced a sugar rush in your lives after eating a candy bar or drinking soda. This sugar rush causes our blood sugar levels to spike and just leaves us tired and drained. In the long term- sugar causes us to gain weight, increases our chances of diabetes, and heart disease.
And it doesn’t help that sugar is addicting. Our bodies crave it and once we give in we just want more.
So how can you reduce your sugar intake and prevent diabetes?
1) Dr Willard Willet from Harvard School of Medicine says the number one way to reducing sugar is to eliminate sugary beverages. Stick with water or ice tea.
2) Instead of grabbing for that afternoon candy bar- eat foods that will help balance out your blood sugar. A convenient way is with the Cinch Inch Loss program- this is a delicious addition to your diet and taste like a dessert but doesn’t spike your blood sugar.

3) Be conscious of the food your are eating. Eat foods that have a low glycemic index because they will release glucose more slowly and steadily. Here’s a list of great foods including brown rice and sweet potatoes.
4) Indulge your sweet tooth naturally. Fruits, honey, maple syrup and molasses all contain natural sugars. Although these foods are no health superstars, they are a better option when the sweet tooth strikes and you are craving some sugary action.
