Diabetes and a healthy diet.

What is a Healthy Diet?

A healthy diet is a way of eating that that reduces risk for complications such as heart disease and stroke. Healthy eating includes eating a wide variety of foods including:
  • vegetables
  • whole grains
  • fruits
  • non-fat dairy products
  • beans
  • lean meats
  • poultry
  • fish
There is no one perfect food so including a variety of different foods and watching portion sizes is key to a healthy diet. Also, make sure your choices from each food group provide the highest quality nutrients you can find. In other words, pick foods rich in vitamins, minerals and fiber over those that are processed. People with diabetes can eat the same foods the family enjoys. Everyone benefits from healthy eating so the whole family can take part in healthy eating. It takes some planning but you can fit your favorite foods into your meal plan and still manage your blood glucose, blood pressure and cholesterol. The old saying is still true today "everything in moderation." 90% of our national health issues from heart disease, to diabetes, stroke, and I will personally go as far as to say some cancers, and so much more is linked to how we eat not as much as what we eat. We as a nation need to stop stuffing entire bags of chips our mouths in a gluttonous rage and start eating the way our body was designed to consume. 2013-01-29-Winning_Diabetes_Type2 Medi-Health was designed to help you relearn how to eat in a way that promotes stable blood sugar levels, and increased metabolism, weight loss, and reduced risks from diet related health problems. you can see more at http://medi-health.com
