You’ve probably heard that resistance training is good for you, and you might even know that it can be especially beneficial for people living with diabetes. But most people don’t know why this is, or how to get started. So in this post, I’ll dive into the benefits of resistance training when it comes to diabetes, and give you some tips on how to successfully incorporate it into your life.
I know - it can be a minefield. Why is to so difficult to know the right food to eat when you’re diabetic and wanting to lose weight?
If you follow the medical dogma you are likely to be told to avoid fat and watch calories. This is despite the fact that a mountain of evidence show it doesn’t work at all. You’ve got a 5% chance of pulling that approach off - don’t do it!
One of the most common things you are likely to be told by EVERYONE is that moderation is the key.
It’s a brand new year and time for a fresh start. Maybe you were telling yourself that this will be the year, you’ll lose the weight and get your sugars down and reduce your medications too.
You’ll show those doctors that are always talking about losing weight, you’re going to power through January…
It’s January 1st and you’re all fired up, ready to start with that New Year’s weight loss resolution. You’re determined! Now is the time to make life-altering changes to your diet, your fitness, and your diabetes management in order to drop those extra pounds that have been bothering you. You might already have bought all the gear, read all the fitness magazines and stocked up on test strips. That’s great! I’m proud of you, and honestly applaud your enthusiasm and desire to make positive changes in your life.
When you have diabetes you’re told to lose weight.
They make it sound easy “Just eat less and move more” right? We all know it’s not that simple, or is it?
What if I told you that you there’s something really simple you can do to get healthier?
No gym memberships or lycra involved. You can do it at home right now!
It all starts with a simple change.
It’s been a long day. You’ve been thinking about putting your feet up when you get home and unwinding in front of the TV.
The last thing on your mind is creating a meal from scratch that’s perfect for your blood sugars.
Being type 2 diabetic doesn’t have to mean you need to be a gourmet in the kitchen. It doesn’t mean you have to miss out either.
Do you wake up and want to hit snooze on the alarm clock and can’t wait to lie in on the weekends? You spend the day wishing you had more energy and dream of snuggling up in your bed at the end of the day?
You’re not alone. Nearly half of people surveyed say they don’t get enough sleep. The CDC (Centre for Disease Control) cites insufficient sleep as a public health problem. The CDC estimates that 50-70 million US adults have sleep or wakefulness disorder.
