One of the best ways to reduce our chances of developing diseases such as Type 2 Diabetes, Heart Disease or High Blood Pressure are Lifestyle Changes
They can also help control symptoms of Type 1 diabetes (an auto-immune disease vs a lifestyle)
Lifestyle changes can be complemented by medications to control blood sugar and blood pressure, but wouldn’t it be great to be able to not need a bunch of pills in general?
When any non-exercisers and junky eaters think about changing their diet, immediately they can rebel or start telling me all the reasons why it will not work. They hate to sweat, they hate water, vegetables take like dirt and everyone at the gym will look at them
The key is so to start small and to keep an open mind. Try vegetables until you find the ones you like. If you do not like broccoli, maybe you will love kale. If you do not like surfing, how about parasailing? Or Paddleboarding?
You will not know until you try. I can guarantee that if you stay doing what you have been doing, it will lead to disease. This is an absolute certainty. To have a defeatist attitude right away that you will never find an activity, or a way of eating that will ever work for you so you might as well go grab some cheese curds and some medication. It isn’t giving your body a chance
Our bodies can repair themselves if we give it a little time. So, let it do its thing!!! Will you feel better and wouldn’t it be fabulous to go on an adventure with your kids? Like I did with my then 7-year-old.
