Type 2 Diabetes and the Simplest Reversal Plan!

Type 2 Diabetes and the Simplest Reversal Plan!

After you have been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, you may be similar to many other people who begin wondering how they came to this point. Was there something they did, or you did, to contribute to the development of this condition?

The answer is yes, but before you start blaming yourself, you must realize that you probably had no idea that for the past few years, you were creating diabetes in your body. You really didn’t sit down and say to yourself, “I’m going to eat myself silly so I’ll get diabetes”! So there’s no sense in getting involved in the blame game. Instead, realize that everything in life is a learning process. Every setback is a setup for success.

With this in mind, examine three primary reasons for the development of type 2 diabetes:

1. You’ve been overweight too long.

When you’re overweight, the insulin receptors become blinded to the insulin your pancreas pumps out into the bloodstream. It’s as if these receptors don’t recognize your insulin. Meanwhile, your pancreas gets the idea that if it pumps out more insulin, sometimes four to five times more, then maybe by some chance your cells’ insulin receptors will recognize the insulin. This, of course, doesn’t happen and the cells never do make the connection.

2. You ate too many carbohydrates at one time in a meal or snack, and did that too many times.

The number one reason why insulin levels are pumped out in extraordinarily high amounts is because they are responding to what you have eaten. Too many carbohydrates in a meal sends off a body signal your blood sugar level is rising too fast in a short period of time. This causes your body to release insulin, and plenty of it, as a survival mechanism. If the blood sugar isn’t reduced, which is what insulin does, then your body will go into a coma.

3. You didn’t exercise.

Exercise helps the cells recognize the insulin your body makes.

Now that you know the three main contributing factors to why you developed type 2 diabetes, you can do something about them!

Keep your plan simple and you will start the reversal process. The simplest plan is to:

lose 10% of your body weight if you’re overweight

eat no more than 45 grams carbohydrate in a meal, and

get at least 20 minutes exercise a day. The exercise could be a brisk walk in the morning

This plan of attack has worked for years for thousands of people with type 2 diabetes. Start out with these three steps and if you still have high blood sugar levels in six months, you can start adding additional measures.
