Lose Weight To Improve Your Diabetes Condition
Loss in every situation can not be considered as the loss. Some losses are the forerunners of gain. You will be happy with certain losses. The immediate example is, if you are overweight and if in the course of diabetes treatment, you lose weight, it is the cause for elation. It will substantially help you bring your diabetes under control.
The statistics related to diabetes all over the world are appalling. 7% of the population of USA is affected by diabetes. In every 10 dollars spent on health care, 1 dollar is spent on treatment related to diabetes. So, what is needed is constant monitoring of diabetes. That is right type of medications at the right time. Have a regular schedule of exercises and a good diet system. And above all, take proper steps to manage and control your body weight.
Do not take a grim view of your weight problem. Many a instant weight loss programs are floating in the market. Sudden loss of weight is the most unwelcome feature in diabetes condition. Slow and steady is the best course, and being an obese individual, you have no race to win! Have a modest goal and you are bound to achieve it.
Weight loss in gradual strides, is the proper way of self-improvement. Now you have the valid excuse to reduce your weight, thanks to diabetes!
Even otherwise, an obese person is not the one who is liked by every one, he receives unpleasant taunts. Why should you carry that extra luggage on your legs and cause gravitational disturbance? Even the gradual beginning of weight loss say a couple of pounds, will have the salutary effect in the process of controlling the diabetes.
The best way to achieve weight loss, apart from the exercise schedule, is the pattern of diet. I am not asking you to eat less, but eat intelligently.
Just recall your pre-diabetes life pattern (you had diabetes then, but you were not actually aware of it). How irregular was the style and pattern of your life? Did you apply your mind a wee-bit to the food habits?
You gulped, whatever in front of you, demanded more spice and salt, woke up till late hours. There was absolutely no discipline in your lifestyle, regarding both the aspects of time management and diet-management! But, now you have turned the tables. You are losing weight and gaining interest in your normal day to day activities.
Another important factor your have to remember is that you need to change your social groups. You have to mingle with your diabetes support group more frequently, your sympathetic friends, your doctor, the therapist and other professionals who are all for your cause. Diabetes control is an ongoing process and the good indications are that you have begun to lose weight gradually.
