Can Type 2 Diabetes Be Delayed, Even Prevented? What Research Says…

With all the misinformation out there, you might not think Diabetes was curable. Yet, a question more appropriate may be, is it preventable in the first place? It’s much easier preventing something bad from taking hold instead of allowing it happen and then trying to fix it.

This philosophy always made sense to me. It’s interesting to read how easy one can prevent diabetes. In a nutshell, they are suggesting lose weight, change your diet to healthier food and exercise. Are these not reasonable and rational steps to take?

‘Diabetes can cause serious health problems, such as heart disease, stroke, and eye and foot problems. Prediabetes also can cause health problems. The good news is that type 2 diabetes can be delayed or even prevented [1 https://www.niddk.nih.gov/health-information/diabetes/overview/preventing-type-2-diabetes]‘.

I exercise (although lightly,) and lost 50 lbs. simply by eating plant based whole food. Furthermore, I don’t suffer any serious health condition. Additionally, I haven’t had to take prescription medication and visit a doctor.

‘Don’t forget doctors are the third leading cause of death and prescription medications often have a variety of potentially serious or life threatening side effects’

It has been proven eating a plant based whole food can and does cure ailments, conditions and diseases. Personally, I have experienced eating certain foods causes inflammation. For example, corn and palm oils, but so far it seems not with extra virgin olive oil. If I don’t keep a careful eye on what I eat, RA (rheumatoid arthritis) symptoms return.

I don’t like pain. Suffering from muscle, joint and general pain throughout my body I have found is ‘preventable’. In addition, weight gain is also preventable. I lost weight when I stopped eating bags of chips, boxes of crackers and loaves of bread.

‘If you eat high nutrient, high fiber, low calorie foods like whole in-tact fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, grains and legumes, you will likely lose weight and experience improved health like I did’

I have read about people who lost more than a hundred pounds. They look much happier, have improved their health and more than not see their ailments, conditions and disease completely disappear.
