Diabetic Strategies to Consider

Glucose balance is a diabetic’s life struggle. We all know to keep our sugars down, eat right and exercise. Here are some basic strategies to consider.
  • Eat low glycemic foods every two hours. This keeps the metabolism on a slow burn, keeping glucose low.
  • Exercise. Burn that glucose. Any exercise is good, but cardio is best. Try a 30 minute walk per day or higher intensity cardio with cycling, swimming or running for 30 to 60 minutes, two or three times per week. Weight training builds muscle, which burns glucose.
  • Rest. Get enough sleep to let the body recover.
  • Consider drinking green tea and cinnamon, which have been shown to lower blood glucose.
  • Adopt a positive mental attitude. This helps brain chemistry and ignites the metabolism.
These simple strategies will go a long way toward preventing diabetes and managing it. Get educated on the glycemic index, eat smart, exercise, rest, stay positive and be happy.
