Reversing Pre Diabetes Naturally: Start your Plan

How Did I Go About Reversing Pre Diabetes Naturally


Start Reversing Pre Diabetes NaturallyPre diabetes is a condition where blood glucose (sugar) is higher than normal. It's starting to climb up towards the higher end of the range but not high enough to be diagnosed as diabetes.   In other words, this is your chance. You can make lifestyle changes now. You will eliminate the risk of developing diabetes with all its potential complications which can stand in your way from living a functional and independent life.



Reversing Pre Diabetes Naturally: My Personal Success Plan

I began my plan with a diet after two visits to the dietitian and many hours of research. I came up with a strong recommendation to:
  • Lose weight

  • Reduce my sugar and salt consumption

  • Change my eating habits

  • Start some physical activity.


Reversing Pre Diabetes Naturally: Start writing a diary

The first step in my plan was to start a food diary. I wrote down the quantities of everything I ate and drank and the time for at least 3-4 days a week. Research shows that being aware of what you eat on most days of the week will help you succeed in achieving your goal, reversing pre diabetes naturally.

Reversing Pre Diabetes Naturally: Set up your goal

I followed with setting up my goal. What did I want to accomplish? I wrote down how many pounds I planned to lose and the date I wanted to achieve it. Set up a specific goal, a goal that you believe you can accomplish. Plan for success! This sense of purpose was a great driving force for me.

Things to consider when you're setting your goal:

Find out your Body Mass Index (BMI) category. According to your BMI, determine the amount of weight you want to lose. Set a timeline. It doesn't have to be a specific date. It could be a particular month. You'll do it by March for example. I based my timeline on losing 1 pound a week.

Be aware of your food consumption. I reduced my portions. I use to load up my plate and go for seconds.  Now I eat smaller portions and still feel satisfied. I based my diet around plant foods. I focused on vegetables, whole grains, fruit, beans for protein, and fish, rich in omega-3 fatty acids.


Decide what type of exercise/physical activities you'll participate in. Schedule it. Give it a priority. Find a buddy or a family member to join you on your new path. I had my wife join me with my new eating habits and my walks. It makes it easier if you have someone to share it with.

Think of the "reversing pre diabetes naturally plan" as laying a foundation for your well being.  Something that you will be doing from now on to benefit your body and your health.

Low-Carb Diet Not All It’s Cut Out to Be

While there is very little doubt that consuming less carbohydrates is an effective way to lose weight and prevent or treat pre-diabetes, there’s a problem with a strict low-carb diet such as the Atkins diet. The fact is, most people simply can’t stay on it for very long.


Carbohydrate Rich food
Get Your Clues From Mother Nature

Mother Nature’s way of making sure that you get the right balance of nutrients in your diet is the reason for food cravings. You can’t live on calories alone. You need vitamins, minerals, proteins, and certain kinds of fats in your diet to stay healthy. Most of the foods we eat contain nutrients that are necessary for good health. When your diet falls short of providing some vital nutrients, your body lets you know by causing a craving for foods that contain what’s missing.

Fruits and vegetables are full of vitamins, minerals, and fiber that are essential to good health. Meat and dairy products are rich sources of protein and fats that you can’t live without. There’…

Why Is Your Body Not Able to Keep Your Blood Sugar Levels From Rising?

It took me a while until I was able to see the big picture how my pre diabetes, my diet, insulin, beta cells, and diabetes all related to each other. Once I connected all the pieces of the puzzle, I had a clear idea how to proceed to reverse my pre diabetes and not develop diabetes.


Diabetes occurs when your body loses its ability to keep your blood sugar levels from rising too high. Since 1970, obesity rates have skyrocketed along with an epidemic of diabetes in adults. As scientists have learned more about the cause of diabetes, it has become apparent that adult-onset diabetes (diabetes type 2) and obesity are just different manifestations of the same disease process. Some doctors call it “diabisity”. It’s clear what brings on adult-onset diabetes, and why so many people are overweight today.

The development of insulin as medication has been an important achievement of modern medicine. Insulin has saved many lives of both children and young people with type 1 diabetes since the 1920s.…

American Diabetes Association Alert Day®

Are You at Risk?American Diabetes Association Alert Day® is a one-day "wake-up call" asking the American public to take the Diabetes Risk Test to find out if they are at risk for developing type 2 diabetes. In 2015, Alert Day will take place on Tuesday, March 24.


The Diabetes Risk Test asks users to answer simple questions about weight, age, family history and other potential risk factors for pre-diabetes or diabetes type 2 . Preventive tips are provided for everyone who takes the test, including encouraging those at high risk to talk with their health care provider.

Although Alert Day is a one-day event, the Diabetes Risk Test is available year-round.
