Currently, in the United States, an estimated 30.3 million people have diabetes and that number continues to grow. Of that number, about 24 million have type 2 diabetes and another 96 million people are pre-diabetic. This means blood sugar levels are too high. Managing type 2 diabetes starts with exercise and diet. Both are equally important to keep glucose levels in check. Managing what one eats by making a few changes and adding a daily exercise regimen is helpful, even a 7-minute yoga workout is a great way to achieve this. There are so many great options to choose from and staying healthy doesn’t mean “you can’t live a little”. In fact, many people are starting to change up their diets to clean and healthy eating and restaurants are starting to follow along with that same line of thought as well. We’ll discuss fiber in this article.

They study proved that in just losing two pounds a year for ten years, their risk of developing diabetes reduced by a third.

We are not ordinarily an alternative health medicine website, but the Budwig protocol has gained enough attention in the recent news that we felt it warranted a paper on this site. There is nothing harmful in the Budwig protocol. Johann Budwig, Ph.D., was a well-known German biochemist who stated that her recipe, along with other modifications in the daily diet would lead to a healthier lifestyle and prevent/cure some diseases.
