You are here: Home / Prevention / How to prevent and cure type 2 diabetes part 6 How to prevent and cure type 2 diabetes part 6 Why is it, that people would rather live with a thought that they can die anytime suffering fatal heart attack, than seriously attacking their problem of inactivity, poor diet and being overweight? I actually know some people, that dont want to hear the risks of being the candidate for a heart attack. They know somewhere deep down, that they are, but they want to forget it. Dont even try to remind them, that they should loose 20 lb or that they should be doing some intervals or, thatcroissant they had for breakfast is messing up with their bodys hormonal systems, causing sugar levels to fly up and down, causing inflammation inside their arteries. You willupset them and they will get angry. They dont want to face the reality. They want to live a lie about their health. Visiting gym regularly and lifting weights, running outside, bicycling, playing tennis, hiking, eating healthy sugarless diet and being lean and fit actually brings an incredible amount of joy and qualityto a persons life. Beside all the health benefits, active, lean, healthy eating people get to hang out with other attractive people. They are generally happier and have much more positive outlook on life. The outlook on life when youre fit, active and healthy is much nicer and happier than the ugly picture of thedeath on the beginning of this site. Is living longer, healthier and happier, more valuable to you than 2 cans of coke, a doughnut or a frozen yogurt? Would you rather sweat from some physical exercise every day, than get your leg amputated, because of a consequence of high sugar levels in your bloodstream? Would you rather loose those extra 20 pounds of weight, than get Continue reading >>

Benefit Of Abs Exercise And Diabetes

Benefit Of Abs Exercise And Diabetes

Do you know the benefit of abs exercise and diabetes that carrying extra weight around your stomach is common with people with pre-diabetes and type 2 diabetic, but the truth about abs does not have to be this way to get a flat tummy and control diabetes. As a matter a fact trimming the belly fat doesn't only make you feel better but it could also help reduce the risk of heart attack and stroke. Making the abs muscle stronger also has other advantages for one they support your lower back to hold you up right, which also give you your perfect posture when you sit and walk. So continual poor posture put your abdominal muscles to sleep leaving you with a belly bump as well with an aching back. A good ab workout is the key to reduce your belly fat strengthen your midsection and also increasing your metabolism which in turn will burn fat, control your sugar levels and lose weight. The first step to lose your belly fat is change your diet and the second is find a great ab workout that will flatten your stomach and get rid of your belly bump once and for all. Here are some myths that some people think they need to do to get a flatter stomach. Myth # 1. Doing many ab exercise will get me those rip six pack. Reality. Your progress will plateau if you do the same exercises, regardless of reps. The key is variations for example try a front plank followed by a left-side plank and a right-side plank -- forces you to contract your abs for long intervals, which helps carve your midsection. Myth # 2. Abdominal exercise involve a lot of movement. Reality. Stomach exercise need a steadiness are the best. When you bend your spine while doing crunches you increase the chance injuring you back by dislocating disk in your back. That’s I would suggest doing exercises like planks. Your abs d Continue reading >>

Belly Toning 101 | Diabetes Health

Belly Toning 101 | Diabetes Health

I start this month with a powerful quote from the incredible strength coach, Mike Boyle: I cant even tell you how often I hear someone at the end of the workout say something like I need to do more abs, I want to get a six pack.' The truth is that passing on a six pack is a better way to get a six pack than 600 sit-ups. The key to abdominal definition is the visibility of the abdominal musculature, not the strength of the muscles. You can do 1 million sit-ups, crunches or whatever exercise you want and it will have no effect on abdominal definition. When people ask me the best exercise for abs I tell them table push-aways. It usually takes a few minutes for them to get it. Its not a joke, its the truth. If you want better abs, eat less and train more but, dont just train your abs. Now that you understand what it takes to make your abs visually more appealing, lets also talk about ways to make them internally stronger. The main function of the muscles in your trunk is stabilization. The reason we need a strong trunk is so it can keep us standing and sitting upright, among other things. Here are a few great ways to keep your trunk strong: 1. Stabilizing a straight spine and neck in a straight arm push up position. 2. Kneel on both knees with your arms off the floor straight out in front of your chest. Clasp your hands together. Have a friend gently push/pull on your hands from each side. The work is done by resisting the force of your friend and remaining balanced and motionless. 3. Side plank on one elbow. Lift your hips as high as you can toward the sky. 4. Lay on your back with your arms lifted towards the sky and knees/feet off the floor bent 90 degrees. Remain motionless for 30-90 seconds. 5. Lay on your belly with your arms straight out over your head and legs stra Continue reading >>

Type 1 Diabetics With A Six-pack

Type 1 Diabetics With A Six-pack

Are there any Type 1 diabetics here with a six-pack? My endocrinologist told me that it's very likely that type 1 diabetics gather a lot of fat near their chest and lower-abdominal area because of the hormonal imbalance that's cause by diabetes. I've been cutting at 1850 calories for the past 17 weeks (went from 175 to 153 pounds) and there's still no six-pack to behold I'd like to see if there are any type 1 bodybuilders/six-pack owners (lol) on this forum and hear their methods. ------------------------------------------------------- I once had a trainer tell me the inner abs are the hardest to firm up. Most people can build muslce on top but not underneath. It takes lots of pilates and deep breathing techniques to firm up the fat under the belly. I have been slowly working at it but no where near a 6 pack. I have lost all the weight I need to , so now onto the muscles. 115 pounds, Breast Cancer dx'd 6/16, 6 months of chemo and 6 weeks of radiation 2000 metformin ER, 100 mg Januvia,Glimperide, Prolia, Gabapentin, Meloxicam, Probiotic with a Prebiotic, , Lisinopril, B-12, B-6, Tumeric, Magnesium, Calcium, Vit D, and Occuvite mostly vegan diet, low fat and around 125 carbs a day, walk 5-6 miles every other day and 1 hour of yoga and light weights. I'm 45 now but 20 years ago I trained as a competitive bodybuilder. Haven't trained like that since but even though I've been type 1 for about ten years, I may not have the washboard I once had but you can still see a six pack. But I lost 60 pounds at dx and haven't really gained it all back, and I run around 30 miles a week for exercise. But some of the people in my pump group are older than me and very active (2 marathoners) and I would bet that they are sporting a great set of abs. So maybe there is hope that we all won't Continue reading >>

Body Transformation: Defeating Diabetes

Body Transformation: Defeating Diabetes

Type II diabetes runs in Marks family. It took his mothers life and had him in the crosshairs. With little option, he made a promise his family that kept him alive and lost 101 pounds! My journey started over 20 months ago after a routine visit to the doctor's office for a checkup. I had always been healthy and while I had put on weight through the years, I didn't feel bad at all. I thought, "He's going to tell me I need to lose weight I bet, but everything else is going to be fine." I had never been sick before, never been hospitalized, so I didn't expect anything out of the ordinary during this visit. I was wrong this time. What I was told would change my life forever. I was told I was a Type II diabetic . This was the same disease that my mother passed away from in 1989. I watched her deteriorate over a 20-year span starting around the age of 45 thru when she passed away at the young age of 65 after suffering miserably from this disease for years. And here I was, sitting in my doctor's office being told I'm diabetic. Ironically, I was 45 years old. History was repeating itself. In addition to this life-changing news, I just simply did not feel good about myself mentally. I hated any pictures taken of me. I was embarrassed by what I looked like and just didn't want to face myself. My weight was ruling my thinking and taking over my life in more ways than I could ever realize. Then there were just the physical demands of life. If I went anywhere with the family, I couldn't walk or stand for too long. I would have to sit and rest because my back and my feet just hurt. I had developed back, leg, heel, and just about any other pain you could imagine when I was on my feet too long. On a family vacation in 2011, I sat alone while my family stood in lines themselves because Continue reading >>

What To Eat To Get Six Pack Abs Faster

Home / Fitness / What to Eat to Get Six Pack Abs Faster By Holly Klamer, RD Leave a Comment Researched Based Article Having a trim waist line is important for more than just looks. Carrying extra fat mass around your stomach area is associated with increasing risk for chronic diseases like cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes. Getting six pack abs takes a combination of losing fat mass around your mid-section and building up your core muscle strength. Getting six pack abs takes time and hard work, but there are some ways you can help speed up the process of shedding weight around your mid-section.

Eating a diet high in fruits and vegetables may be one way to help lose weight and keep weight off according to some research studies including a 2008 study ( 1 ).

Six Pack For Summer ? Here Ishow.

Six Pack For Summer ? Here Ishow.

Posted on December 2, 2013 by DiabeticAthletic in Eating Habits , F.Y.I. // 0 Comments Are you desperate to get 6 pack abs quickly? I have read many articles and seen it advertised, Four easy moves for the ultimate six pack, or Do this for an immediate flat stomach etc etc. Thats NOT possible ! There are many truths about abdominal training. But here is the bottom line : Firstly, you must be willing to commit and do whatever it takes to get the six pack abs. Second you must realise Six packs are made in the kitchen and not in the gym. And last but not least, Weight loss is NOT a physical challenge, it is a mental one ! Thing is, everyone has a six pack . The reason I put this phrase in inverted commas, is because the number of packs you have is genetically predetermined. Yes, you either have it or you dont. Do not despair ! All I mean is that if you are the guy chasing after that elusive 8 pack and only have 4 abdominals visible ( and have hardly any body fat ), chances are that, that is all you have. Make the most of it and make those 4 blocks as visible as possible This article will lists the most important aspects that you have to get right if you want to have any chance of getting your 6 pack. (Remember even if you just START doing one or two things on my list, you are doing better than before .), Its a lifestyle The most important thing to do is to lose the layer of stomach fat covering the abs. Cardio alone is not going to help much. The best way to do this would be to raise your bodys metabolism throughout the day, and you need to build up lean muscle to accomplish that. Lean muscle can be built by doing strength/resistance training with weights, but they dont necessarily have to be very heavy unless you want to need to use heavy weights. Always remember to cons Continue reading >>

Your Six Pack Might Be Ruining Your Health. How Lean Is Too Lean?

Your Six Pack Might Be Ruining Your Health. How Lean Is Too Lean?

Your Six Pack Might be Ruining Your Health. How Lean is Too Lean? We all know the narrative of the couch potato with excessive weight gain and high blood sugar. Blood glucoseincreaseswith a combination of inactivity and insulin resistance. We generalize this as unhealthy.But what about the inverse? Could eating a low-carb Paleo diet and practicing metabolically challenging exerciseresult in excess leanness or low blood sugar? Can your six pack be killing you? The answer, of course, is yessometimes. The trouble is that itsrarely black and white. Throughinterval training and a low-carb, hypocaloric diet, your body will move away from insulin resistance and high blood sugar, and move towardhealthier insulin sensitivity. It allresults in a body that is leaner, carries lower circulating blood sugar, and requires less insulinthe hormone that signals storage and preservation of calories. This is goodyou will be leaner, your circulating fats (as triglycerides) will be reduced, your insulin will lower and you will experience lower overall blood sugar. But too much of a good thing is too much.Endurance athletes are a great example of this. With high training frequency and long-duration exercise, perhaps greater than two hours at a time, insulin sensitivity can be overly expressed. This results in crashes in blood sugar (hypoglycemia) and/or excessive weight loss and Im not talking about fatloss. Im talking precious lean tissue muscles, bones, and more. Let me explain how you can look for this and what it all means. First, check the following tests from the Blood Code Metabolic Discovery Panel . HgbA1c: should be 5.2-5.7% in athletes. If HgbA1c is <5.1% this indicates blood sugar is dipping low, perhaps below 65-70 mg/dL. Fasting Blood Sugar (glucose): 75-95. At levels lower than Continue reading >>

How Can I Get Six Pack Abs?

How Can I Get Six Pack Abs?

Registration is fast, simple and absolutely free so please,join our community todayto contribute and support the site. This topic is now archived and is closed to further replies. I want to get toned and muscular and I was wondering what the best way to do this is.... Work out. Lift heavy objects. Watch your diet. 6-pack abs are more about how much body fat you are carrying verus how big the ab muscles are. Ab muscles don't get all that big. And do that consistently. You've got to put work in to get results. Get your stomach skinny and do lots of ab crunches. It's annoying as I'm never tempted to exercise, but I want to get fitter, as I'm basically wasting away my free weekends on the internet, looking at videos, playing video games and watching TV, so I really should get out more. Tomorrow, I'll go down to my nearest 400m track and run a few laps, and I'm positive I'm going to do it. I've got a six pack, but it's hidden by a couple of 24 packs Who needs a six pack when you have a keg..:thumbsup: Six-packs are more to do with genetics and bodyfat percentage. Only a small amount of the general population will have their bodyfat distributed in such a way make a sixpack possible in the first place. And even if you're one of the lucky people who hits the right genetic combo, I think you need a bodyfat percentage of under 8%, which is very lean. Also, don't fall into the trap of thinking that crunches will make the fat on your stomach magically go away. Fat burning is not localised, otherwise everyone who ate lots would be overweight but with rock hard, lantern jaws! But that's still no reason to not exercise, so good for you. Only thing I'd suggest is that, unless you really enjoy running on your own, you find a different form of exercise. If you just pop down your local r Continue reading >>

How To Prevent Pre-diabetes

How To Prevent Pre-diabetes

The allure of the everelusive six pack can be seeneverywhere we turn today. On TV, inmagazines and billboards you cant help noticing the images ofmodels with narrow waists and well defined abs. For many of these models its a part-time job and for others its how they support themselves. Unless you are a regular at the popular gyms or a professional athlete, chances are that you dont have many people like these in your circle. You know why?To get a set of six pack abs takes a lot of hard work and determination that the average person is just not in a position to do. If you are ready and willing to sacrifice hours in the gym, and preparing and eating foods that is out of your norm, then more power to you. You can get those washboard abs if you put your heart and soul into it . . . tothe detriment of losing touch with normal daily activities such as spending time with your family and friends. As a pre-diabetic with risk factors such as being overweight or living a sedentary lifestyle, youinitially wantto lose the weight bystarting an activity that will burn the excess calories and get you into shape. Beside adopting ahealing diet this is the next best thing to do. After you have reached yourgoals, maintaining that way of life doesnt mean thatyou must hit the gym six days per week for two hours at a time. Or that you cant have a pig-out night with friends and family. However, to get and maintainserious six pack abs means living a life of denial and dedicationthats hard to maintain. You must have some compelling reasons for wanting to get abs like a model. I can understand if you are entering a bodybuildingcompetition or you are trying to impress a member of the opposite sex. But think about it for a second. What good does having a washboard abs do you?Sure it tells the worl Continue reading >>

How A Diabetic Can Get Six-pack Abs

How A Diabetic Can Get Six-pack Abs

Here are the basic guidelines for how someone with diabetes can get six-pack abs. The good news is that for diabetics who want six-pack abs, there is nothing different they need to do as far as the training exercises. What the diabetic must do, however, thats different than for someone free of diabetes, is monitor the blood sugar level before, during and after training, and eat sufficient carbohydrates to keep the blood sugar level where its supposed to be. And keep hydrated though thats also advised for all people who work out and want six-pack abs. The ability for an individual to develop a six-pack, regardless of whether or not they have diabetes, has a lot to do with the percentage body fat, explains Alison Massey, MS, RD, LDN, registered dietitian and diabetes educator at the Center for Endocrinology, Mercy Medical Center of Baltimore, whom I interviewed for this post. A combination of a healthy diet and regular physical activity is key in working towards the six-pack goal. However, some individuals may not achieve an actual six-pack if the percentage body fat is still too high. This rule of thumb, as Massey has pointed out, applies to anyone who wants killer abs. But something needs to be made clear: There is more to getting an enviable set of abs than simply losing weight or getting thin. Havent you seen plenty of thin people who didnt even have the slightest amount of definition in their abs? You dont want to get skinny-fat. These are men and women who, though very slender, have a soft, untoned, flabby look, and who have mushy-looking midsections not the faintest sign of definition. To reveal the six-pack, you must force the fat between your skin and abdominal muscles to be sucked out of there. Starvation dieting is not the answer. Intense Weightlifting Sucks O Continue reading >>

The Diabetic Athlete

The Diabetic Athlete

In 1998, two-time Olympic gold medal swimmer Gary Hall Jr. was preparing for the Goodwill Games when his hands suddenly began to shake in the middle of practice. He shrugged it off; after all, he was training up to eight hours a day, burning calories out of the pool as well as through running, weightlifting and boxing. He downed some PowerBars and Gatorade to boost his blood sugar and went back to work. But then he began sucking liquids like a diesel truck, sometimes drinking four gallons of orange juice in one sitting. Soon he couldnt make out the letters on a Pepsi can held at arms length. He had all the telltale signs of diabetes: extreme thirst, blurry vision and fatigue. When he was diagnosed, he was told that his swimming career was over. The doctors said exercise was good in moderation, but not at the level I was at, says Hall. Yet he continued to dive into his sport, revamping his diet and closely monitoring his condition for warning signs. And when he climbed out of the pool in Sydney last year, four more Olympic medals hung around his neck, two of them gold. Hall may be an exceptional case, but he shows that men can pursue active lifestyles, and even exceed their expectations, while managing diabetes. About 16 million Americans have diabetes, and about 2,200 new cases are diagnosed each day. There are two primary kinds of diabetes: Type 2, in which the body lacks sufficient insulin or the ability to use it properly, accounts for more than 85 percent of cases and is generally diagnosed in obese adults over 40. Type 1, in which the pancreas becomes unable to manufacture insulin, usually strikes those under 30 and is the more common condition among active males. Insulin is a protein hormone that enables the body to use sugar and other carbohydrates; it also help Continue reading >>
