Slash Type 2 Diabetes 40%!
Few things in life are free.
Most of the time you get what you pay for….
But — what if I told you that you could do just a little bit of work and get a BIG payoff for your health?
Especially if you are worried about (or have) diabetes.
Would you take it?
I’m talking about weight loss.
Now hold on, before you delete this message in frustration — because let’s be honest, losing weight is hard especially if you don’t know what you are doing — let me tell you what researchers found about how much weight loss you need in order to see a big drop in diabetes risk.
The research team, presented their work at European and International Congress on Obesity proceedings.
The study looked at over 550,000 overweight adults in the United Kingdom who lost between 10 and 25 percent of their body weight, and they followed them for eight years.
The researchers found that just losing 13 percent of your body weight can dramatically drop the risk of type 2 diabetes by around 40 percent.
Guess what else came with all that reduction in diabetes risk?
An up to 27 percent reduction in sleep apnea, a 25 percent reduction in high blood pressure, and a 20 percent improvement in blood cholesterol. Even knee and hip arthritis improved in people losing weight.
And all for a (pretty reasonable) weight loss. You too can have similar results if you follow a good program.
Here’s where you can start:
Dr. Scott’s Plan to Lose 13 Percent Fat:
- Control Your Blood Sugar: Since weight gain is almost always because of high blood sugar, this is the best way to go. For control of blood sugar, I like berberine, chromium, and Garcina cambogia.
- Increase Metabolism: This is best accomplished by maintaining a lean body mass – exercise and getting enough protein help with this.
- Protein: You need to eat protein to feel full, have less of an appetite, and lower your cravings. Protein easily fills you up and takes more energy to digest than any other type of food. Protein also helps build muscle mass–which pushes your metabolism into overdrive.
- Work Hard: University of Maryland researchers concluded that a lifestyle with abundant physical work is the best for weight loss and maintenance. How do you make this work for you? Find an exercise you like doing and do that a lot. Your exercise can be walking, golfing, swimming, biking… anything you enjoy.
- Eat Plants: The best diet on the planet is the Mediterranean Diet — this includes fish, poultry, vegetables, nuts, and olive oil. You can make this work for you by including a veggie with every meal and make olive oil your standard oil.
- Drink Only Water: This is the hardest step for most people. The calories that come from drinking anything but water are calories you don’t need. If you want to drink something else, try green tea or coffee – these kick your metabolism into high gear and help your weight loss.
