Your Diet Requires the Right Food

Glucose intolerance is one of the major factors contributing to diabetes. Though you may not be diabetic, you likely have some kind of intolerance. Your pancreas is likely producing far more insulin than necessary to move your blood sugar into the cells of your body.

It's the direct result from consuming highly processed food that creates unnatural spikes in blood sugar. Diabetes results from many factors. Heredity, obesity, stress, lack of exercise and what is eaten all can bring on diabetes. When it comes to food most of us eat what is convenient and lacks the essential nutrients our bodies need to function on a normal level. It's hardly surprising that you get sick since your body is unable to cope with the viruses, bacteria and pathogens that invade it on a daily basis. Our hurried lifestyle doesn't guarantee we will eat properly.

But it is in your hands to make sure that your health matters and you should be prepared to take the time to address it. You simply cannot rely totally on your doctor or a quick fix from a pill. The first step is to consume a diet that is rich in all the nutrients your body needs. That means taking time to prepare food and eat properly. What you should be eating are: --Fresh Vegetables: They are the most important part of your diet. the best veggies are the dark, leafy green vegetables such as spinach, kale, cabbage, broccoli, beet greens, collards and Swiss chard.

5 servings of vegetables every day is what you need for good health. --Fruits: Berries are a good source of vitamins, anti-inflammatory compounds and anti-oxidants. Cherries, blueberries, strawberries, raspberries all make for a better snack than a chocolate bar. You should have at least 2 servings of fruit every day. --High fiber cereals like oat bran, oatmeal, cream of wheat and farina make for a better breakfast than Corn Flakes which ranks high on the Glycemic Index.

Eat bread that is whole grain; stone ground wheat, oats, rye, bulgur and barley. Consume 4 servings of bread, cereal, whole wheat pasta, rice or noodles every day. --Fish. We simply don't eat enough of it. Fatty fish such as halibut, sardines, salmon and mackerel are high in healthy omega-3 oils.

Eat fish at least once a week. It's believed that the reason we get sick is due to the imbalance between omega 3 to omega-6 oils. We consume far too much omega-6. If you don't like fish, try using a pharmaceutical grade fish oil. That extra omega 3 will do you good. --Nuts and seeds are not just for birds.

While they contain fat, the fat is mostly of the mono-unsaturated variety. Snack on walnuts, Brazil nuts, almonds, pecans, sunflower, pumpkin and flax seeds. --Meats. Beef is one of the major staples in our diet. You should eat lean meat that is organic and pesticide free.

Turkey, chicken, fish, seafood and eggs are all high in protein and far leaner than beef. Limit your consumption to 2 or 3 servings or about the size of a deck of playing cards. --Water.

So it's not a food, as such. We can survive quite long without solid food but we must have water. Drink about 8 to 12 glasses of pure water to help flush out toxins. It's been shown that toxins play a large part toward the development of diabetes. That's a good list to get you started on the road to better health and recovery.

Chances are you're not eating half of this list though you should. Cut down the fatty, salty and sugary snacks. Most of that food consists of useless and empty calories. Changing your diet means more energy and better health. There's no better time to make a change in your diet than eating the right foods.
