So your blood sugar levels are normal but what about your insulin levels? In this video, we talk about the ABCs of reversing type 2 diabetes naturally and Hey if we're meeting for the first time, my name is Lynette and I'm here to help you get back to the pink of health and be beautiful naturally and today I'm on a quest to find out how to A – avoid, B- beat and C – control type-2 diabetes naturally just by choosing the right foods and talking about foods, what foods do we avoid? Remember previously we talked about how carbs turn into sugar in our bodies so very simplistically if diabetes is the passing of sweet or honey tasting water then by reducing the amount of carbs you actually reduce the amount of sugar that's freely roaming in your bloodstream So why is there sugar in your bloodstream? Because you eat too much carbs
There's too much rice, too much noodles, pasta, breads, potatoes things like that and plus you don't really exercise, you don't have time and so you don't expend all of that which you've eaten and what happens is all of these get converted to sugar and get stored up as fat and that's what you call a decrease in insulin sensitivity You end up feeling hungry all of the time and you have cravings for carbs and it's a vicious cycle you know because insulin is the hormone that tells you when to eat when to stop eating On top of that, insulin is also the key that unlocks our cells to tell it to take in sugar to either use it as energy or to store as fat and so if you think about it insulin is actually that which keeps your blood sugar in perfect balance So when you eat too much carbs, you actually cause your pancreas to overwork and when it overworks, it has to produce more insulin to cope with the high amounts of sugar that's in your body and it's worse if your cells are not taking in the sugar, that's how you end up having sugar floating about in your bloodstream and that's dangerous because that's something called insulin resistance and that can lead to pre-diabetes and eventually Type-2 Diabetes Now what I find most disturbing about insulin resistance is the fact that it is one of five risk factors that increases your chances of getting heart disease and stroke so you really need to pay attention if you've got insulin resistance, excess belly fat, high blood pressure, high triglyceride levels and low healthy cholesterol levels But what if you are skinny, you exercise, you eat well? It's best to confirm with the test so as for the insulin levels test to know for sure whether you develop health complications later or not If you are well and good that's great! Don't you want to preserve what you already have? Now according to Dr
Sukol, insulin is like money in the bank It is finite So if your pancreas has to constantly overwork to produce high amounts of insulin to cope with high amount of sugar in your body it's bound to go wonky at some point so why not start today don't wait till it's too late I challenge you cut out carbs from your diet Substitute it with 70% good fat, 25% protein and if you're on medication already consider cutting on your carbs as well so you reduce your dependence on pills as well Okay so that's a lot of information to take in I know You're most welcome to watch this video again or I'll see you in the next video!
