3 Tips in How to Prevent Type 2 Diabetes (Diet and Exercise)
#1 Avoid Sugary Foods
Recent studies show that men, women and children are eating 3 times more sugar cubes than the recommended daily dose. I am not suggesting to stop eating chocolates and sweets. What I am saying is to control your daily sugar intake. Children should not eat more than 6 cubes of sugar a day. Too much sugar causes obesity, teeth decay and type 2 diabetes.
#2 Walk 2 Hours a Day
Doing regular cardiovascular exercises is a good way to burn calories. Walking 2 hours a day is sufficient to maintain a good body mass index. 2 hours walk at your local park burns around 500 calories which is the bare minimum what you should aim for. You do not need to get a gym membership in order to walk 2 hours a day.
#3 Drink 3 Litres of Water a Day
Water is essential for the body metabolism, drinking 3 litres of water a day ensures that your body runs at a smooth pace. It also helps to control your blood sugar levels.
There you have it 3 tips in how to prevent type 2 diabetes. If you follow these diet and exercises plans you will ensure that your body stays healthy for longer. Preventing obesity is the first step in tackling this global rise of type 2 diabetes.
