Want to lower your glucose numbers? Follow the 10-minute rule.
The 10-minute rule suggests that you exercise for 10-minutes after every meal. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner. That short 10-minute bout of activity goes a long way to rev your metabolism so you burn more calories and you lower blood glucose more effectively. You can do whatever you want.... walk, cycle, dance, swing your arms in...Read Full Post »

It's in the news again, and it is NONSENSE: Skipping breakfast does NOT causes obesity and heart disease.
There's no causation here, folks. In fact skipping breakfast is a kind of intermittent fasting, and intermittent fasting is a great way to lower blood glucose numbers and lose weight.
The more time that you spend not eating (in the fasted state), the more cha...Read Full Post »

This soup is a favorite at my house. It seems we never get tired of eating it. It's as delicious as it is nutritious. One serving gives you 120 calories, 6 grams of fiber, and all the vitamin A and beta-carotene you'll need for the day. It's rich in vitamins B1, B6, C, and K, and it brings a smile to your face.
5 big soup carrots, washed chopped

A recent study showed that when you eat plant protein instead of animal protein cholesterol levels go down.
Researchers looked at more than 100 papers that studied what happens when you add plant-based protein, e.g. beans, lentils, soy, grains, etc., to the diet, and, at the same time, you limit or eliminate animal-based...Read Full Post »

While these ingredients render a delicious pot of nutritious, plant-based, erasing diabetes chili, you can add just about any vegetable that's wilting in your fridge. Instead of using a slow cooker, you can make this in a pot on your stove, letting it simmer for at least an hour to maximize the flavor. Even so, I find that the Crockpot is best for letting the chili cook slowly and for letting the flavors explode.Read Full Post »

Neuropathy, damage to the nerves of the feet, can be crippling. At best, some describe it as having rocks in their socks or a loss of sensation, but many describe it as severe, stabbing pain. The longer you have diabetes, the greater your chance for developing neuropathy. Half of people who have diabetes for 25 years have neuropathy.
If you ask around, most health practitioners will say t...Read Full Post »

Research shows that interval training—workouts in which you alternate periods of high-intensity exercise with low-intensity recovery periods— lowers glucose better and burns more calories over a short period of time than steady-state cardio (doing the same thing for your whole workout time). Also known as HIIT (high-intensity interval training) and MIIT (moderate-intensity int...Read Full Post »

This dish is super! The combination of sweet potatoes and vegetarian meatballs make this lasagna better than any other. I’d love to add a layer of spinach or kale, but my husband doesn’t care for greens inside his food. Go figure. Instead, we eat steamed greens on the side. But you can add them in if you’d like. Just chop them fine. A bit ofRead Full Post »

Nuts can stop weight loss in a nanosecond. If you are having trouble losing weight, you might be eating too many nuts.
I agree that nuts are a good source of omega-3 fatty acids, fiber, and other essential nutrients. In research, nuts have been shown to lower blood cholesterol and not to cause weight gain; however, this is not what I see in practice.
I like to borrow a line from...Read Full Post »

I bake these in a glass baking dish and line it with compostable parchment paper, so there’s no need for oil. The bread doesn’t stick to the baking dish. Just rinse the dish, and it’s clean. The parchment paper gets tossed into the compost. See, it’s a win-win all around.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a 8X8 backing dish with parchment pa...Read Full Post »

Potatoes have earned a bad rap, but they are truly a perfect food. High in fiber and low in fat, potatoes are ideal for erasing diabetes and for reaching or maintaining your goal weight. This recipe delivers delicious crispy fries without oil or salt. You can use any kind of potato, but I find that Yukon gold work best. I've included my favorite blend of spices, but you can use any th...Read Full Post »

The next several posts focus on the tricks that I've uncovered in the research that can help you with weight loss. I'll post them one at a time because you should try them one at a time. Trying all of them at once might be overwhelming, but in the end, you can use as many as work for you.
