The most important thing to do when you decide or commit yourself to improving your health is to cut down on sugars first.

Cutting down on carbohydrates is equally important but the first step definitely will be to cut down on sugars.

You don’t have to be diabetic or diabetes doesn’t have to run in your family to do this step.

Cut down on eating anything that is sweet. Most commonly we take sugar in the form of soda, desserts, sweets, adding sugar in beverages like coffee or tea.

The Next Step would be to cut down on carbohydrates i.e. basically cut down any food made of flour.

Start doing today and gradually you will see improvement in your health or at least you will delay or actually prevent development of diabetes in future.

Eat salads as much as possible whenever you get an opportunity. Salads help by filling your stomach so you don’t crave for more junk food which are filled either with carbohydrates or sugars.

When we eat sugar or carbohydrates, the body produces insulin because the sugar levels in the blood go up and Insulin will try to bring it down.

If you keep eating these in higher quantities, the level of insulin in the blood will be high and this time the body develops resistance to it which leads to development of type 2 diabetes. That’s why, it’s very important to cut down sugar and carbohydrate intake.

This is, of course, not a medical advice.

Talk to your family doctor and then follow their advice.
