Natural Diabetes Curec:
Foods that you must remove to reverse diabetes naturally
Refined sugar quickly accelerates blood glucose and soft drinks, fruit juice and other sugary drinks are the main culprits. These forms of sugar enter the bloodstream quickly and can cause extreme elevations in blood glucose. Although natural sweeteners like raw honey and maple syrup are better choices, they can still affect blood sugar. Your best option is to switch to stevia.
Grains, especially grains that contain gluten such as wheat, contain large amounts of carbohydrates that are broken down into sugar in a few minutes of consumption. As discussed above, gluten can cause intestinal inflammation that affects hormones such as cortisol and leptin, and can cause peaks in blood sugar. You would remove all grains from your diet during your first 90 days in this curing program and after that time you will be able to re-enter old grains sprouted in small amounts.
Conventional cow's milk should be eliminated especially for type 1 diabetics. Dairy products can be a fantastic food to balance blood sugar if it comes from goats, sheep or cows A2. Stay away from all other forms of dairy products because A1 casein produced by conventional cows will harm the body and trigger an immune response similar to gluten. When you buy dairy products, only buy raw and organic products from animals raised in pasture.
Alcohol can dangerously increase the level of sugar in the blood and cause liver toxicity. Beer and sweet liqueurs are rich in carbohydrates and should be avoided.
Transgenic corn, soybeans and canola have been linked to kidney and liver diseases and can promote diabetes. I suggest eliminating all GMO foods and all packaged foods from your diet. Also, remove hydrogenated oils from your diet, including vegetable oil, soybean oil, cottonseed oil and canola oil.
The best foods to treat diabetes
If you want to reverse type II diabetes or prevent diabetes, I suggest you add the following foods to your diet.
Foods rich in fiber help to decrease the absorption of glucose. Try to get at least 30 g of fiber per day of vegetables, avocados, berries, nuts and seeds.
Foods high in chromium can improve the GTF glucose tolerance factor in your body and, naturally, balance blood glucose levels. Broccoli, raw cheese, green beans and grass-fed beef are all high in chrome, however, broccoli has the highest amounts by far.
MCFAs found in coconut and red palm oil can help balance blood sugar levels and be a preferred fuel source for your body instead of sugar.
Wild fish contains omega-3 fats and reduces inflammation that can help counteract some of the negative effects of elevated blood glucose.
Foods with a low glycemic load tend not to increase blood sugar as much as high glycemic index foods. Foods with low glycemic index include vegetables, nuts, seeds, avocados, coconut, organic meat, eggs, wild fish and grazed dairy products.
Spraying herbs such as cinnamon, turmeric and parsley in food can also help balance blood sugar levels.
The 5 best supplements to balance blood sugar
1. Chromium picolinate (600 mcg per day). It helps improve insulin sensitivity.
2. Cinnamon (2 teaspoons a day) Add to food, smoothie or tea to help improve blood sugar control.
3. Fish oil (1,000 mg daily) Omega-3s are necessary for proper insulin function.
4. Alpha-lipoic acid (300-1200 mg daily) Improves insulin sensitivity and reduces the symptoms of neuropathy.
5. Fiber powder (10 g) The fiber of vegetables and seeds can control blood glucose. I recommend finding a supplement that contains germinated chia and flax seeds.
Other supplements that can help diabetes include: magnesium, rhodiola, green coffee extract, bitter melon and Gymnema Sylvestre.
The feeding plan to reverse diabetes
If you want to balance your blood sugar level and see the results quickly, follow this plan as closely as possible. I want you to concentrate on getting enough protein, healthy fats and fiber in every meal.

Balance exercise Your blood sugar level
Exercise is another crucial part of improving insulin sensitivity. Of course, it supports metabolism by burning fat and building lean muscle. To prevent and reverse diabetes, I recommend going out and walking 20 to 30 minutes per day. This has proven to be especially beneficial after meals.
In addition to walking, you also need to do cardio training at intervals (such as burst training) or weight training 3 to 5 days a week for 20-40 minutes.
Burst training can help you burn up to 3 times more body fat than traditional cardio and can naturally increase insulin sensitivity. You can do this on a rotating bicycle with intervals or you can try the burst training at home. Burstfit has a variety of workouts for all fitness levels.
Strength training with weights or free machines is also recommended because it helps you develop and maintain muscles, which supports the balance of blood sugar and sugar metabolism.
