Obesity has been linked to diabetes. And do you know what diabetes has been linked to?
Lovely things like blindness, amputation, and DEATH.
Whether you have diabetes or are one of the millions who is dangerously close to having it, you want to keep your weight under control.
Here are 3 quick tips to do so, besides the basic “eat less and move around more”:
- Drop the simple carbs – Also known as refined carbs, simple carbs get absorbed quickly. This causes your insulin and blood sugar levels to spike. Once that happens, you feel hungry, causing you to want to eat all over again.
Here are some simple carb examples:
- White bread
- White rice
- Cakes, cookies, and candy
- Add complex carbs – Unlike simple carbs, complex ones keep you feeling full thanks to their nutrients. They also keep your blood sugar levels under control and supply you with plenty of sustained energy to be active.
Here are some complex carb examples:
- Brown rice
- Whole grains
- Sleep – You’d think sleeping a lot would cause you to get fat. But the opposite is true. Get the 8-9 hours of recommended shuteye, and you’ll keep your hormones under control. Lack of sleep has been shown to increase the risk of obesity by 55%.
