How To Cut Down On Medications

What if you could cut back on the prescription drugs you take for blood pressure, cholesterol, or type 2 diabetes? It may be possible, with your doctor's support. The trick is to make lifestyle changes that have a big impact on your health. These seven steps will help. 1. Make better eating convenient. Heart-healthy eating boils down to a few simple steps: Stay away from refined sugars. Eat more nuts, fiber, and fish, which are sources of healthy fats. It sounds so simple, right? But first, you need to get those items in your pantry, fridge, car, workplace, and anywhere else you spend a lot of time. What's in there right now? Is it supporting your goals for how you want to eat? If not, it's time to rethink and restock. 2. Read when you shop. Check the nutrition facts label on anything that comes in a bag, box, or can. Packaged foods can have a lot of sodium in them, and there are often lower-sodium options you could buy instead. Making that shift, and reaching for the saltshaker less often, can make a big difference.

    I've read this forum for over a year now but have never posted. I am classified as pre-diabetic (if there truly is such a category). Anyway, I'm here and have been learning.
    I think I got the idea from this site, but there are asian noodles called Miracle Noodles that have little to no carbs. I ordered some but haven't gotten them yet. I'll let you know how they are. I hope I'm pleasantly surprised. :)
    I also found that Birds Eye sells a very large bag of Thai frozen vegetables that comes with a flavor packet that can be added to the veggies. The carb count, even with the sauce, really doesn't seem to be bad at all and it has really a good Thai flavoring. I'm hoping the Miracle Noodles will be good with it.
    Other than that, I too have deprived myself of these types of foods in restaurants because of not knowing anything about the carbs involved.
