When you leave your doctor’s office, do you ever wonder what he’s not telling you? Every appointment, he tells you to eat less sugar and go on more walks, but aren’t there other ways to get your diabetes under control? Here are 3 tricks to managing diabetes that your doctor won’t tell you:
Eat More Fat
You read that right. Eat more fat.
That’s because fat helps your body absorb insulin. That means the more fat you eat, the easier it’ll be to manage your blood sugar.
But here’s the kicker: It’s got to be the right type of fat.
You’re looking for Unsaturated Omega-3 Fat.
Here are some great sources:
- Eggs (Any eggs labeled “enriched” have plenty of omega-3)
- Grass-fed beef (There’s lots of omega-3 in the grass)
Do Some Pushups…
Or any kind of strength exercises.
All the cardio your doctor tells you to do will increase your insulin absorption a little, but to really keep your body regulated you’ve got to get your entire body moving.
The best way to do that is an exercise that focuses on strength.
You want to avoid straining yourself, but make a habit of doing a few pushups every day, throw in somebody squats, and soon you’ll be taking tighter control of your blood sugar.
Not to mention it’ll get rid of stress, and give you plenty of energy.
Laying back and keeping cool is vital to regulating your blood sugar. Stress causes physical distress on the body which affects blood glucose levels.
Not to mention, when you’re stressed out it’s easy to overeat, which obviously wreaks havoc on your blood sugar.
For easy relaxation, try out simple meditation or breathing exercises.
