"Animal fat is the No. 1 enemy when it comes to diabetes."
Did you know that 29 million people in the U.S. have diabetes? That's 9.3 percent of the country's population, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. While we recommend following the Hallelujah Diet to reduce your risk for developing diabetes in the first place, there may be a number of you who are currently living with the debilitating disease. To live your life to the fullest, and perhaps even fuel your self-healing body to eliminate the disease from your system, you must adjust your eating habits. If you have diabetes and want to work on reversing it, consider the following eating tips: Pay Closer Attention to Food Labels While it's certainly in your best interest to avoid foods with a label, make sure you're taking a closer look at the nutrition facts on the organic packaged foods you eat. As suggested by the American Diabetes Association, you should pay attention to the calories, fats and sodium content. Avoid added sugars at all costs. Additionally, stick to packaged foods that have minimal ingredients. The less ingredients, the better. If you can't pronounce an ingredient or you've never heard of it before, do some digging and understand if it's a toxic additive before putting it in your system. Cut Out Animal Products As we've reported in the past, animal fat is the No. 1 enemy when it comes to diabetes. When you consume animal sourced foods like meats and dairy, they're loaded with fats that coat the body's cells. This layer of fat prevents insulin from reaching the insulin receptors of the cell, making it impossible for the body to properly handle glucose. Then, the pancreas works in overdrive to pump out more insulin, becomes exhausted and quits, producing higher levels of glucose in the blood. This can adversely cause complications in small blood vessels and impact the eyes, kidneys and heart.So what's the solution? Stop filling your system with these toxic fats so that your cells can learn how to process glucose properly once again.
