My family doctor, has told me I'm pre diabetic. I'm working hard to lose weight and eat healthy. Diabetes runs in my family, on both sides of my family. What else can I do to correct this? I am 42 years old. Because of this Issue, I now deal with my legs and my feet swelling. I would like to change this please help?
You should be staying away from sugar, white bread, potatoes and etc. Your diet should be high in fibre and breads should be whole wheat. I am diabetic and have cut out so much carbohydrates that many times I am hypoglycemic.
He should be staying away from all carbohydrates including whole wheat bread and his diet should be fat and protein. You're hypoglycemic because of the drugs. If he's not yet on any drugs, and completely cuts out carbs, his glucose level would stabilize back to normal.
It's a tough diet tho. I managed for 2 days only. Couldn't stand the constant hunger. But for him, unfortunately, it's either that or drugs/insulin for the rest of his life. There a good side to this diet: he would lose weight without even trying - that's certain.
