Adjust your way of life
“First, let’s get that straight: diabetes is not a result of sweets or sugar intake. It’s a ‘lifestyle disorder,’ the product of an unhealthy lifestyle. Take necessary improvements in lifestyles that concentrate on correct eating, regularly exercising and controlling bedtimes,” she wrote.
Diet for diabetes
It’s not grassing to eat. Eating according to appetite means that we do not hunger and eat at the right time while maintaining blood sugar stable.
For diabetics, carbohydrates are important. Keep away from the finished variety such as biscuits, cookies, muffins, etc.

Adding fat to a meal decreases the glycemic index (GI). The more fat, the more slowly the sugars are digested, and the lower the glycemic index. Fill your diet with ghee, nuts, and seeds.
Get the protein quota
Protein helps to improve the sensitivity to insulin. Have healthy meals like khichdi kadhi, rice dal, rice dahi, egg and roti so that the protein profile is ideal or full.
The ‘magic’ of Exercise
The American Diabetes Association recommends a 150-minute workout/week. Get up! Get moving! Integrating strength training in the training scheme is important for rising insulin sensitivity. Structured and progressive strength training changes the way the body uses insulin to boost glucose circulation.
The meaning of good sleep
Insufficient sleep or sleep at odd hours contribute to a breakdown of our ‘body clock’ and thus impacts normal, biological processes such as insulin secretion, which are ‘programmed’ into the human system. Make sure you sleep well and restful every day. Often, make sure to go to bed and simultaneously wake up so that the body is completely aligned with the body clock.
