Hello Mr. Rudy,
Diabetes is one of the serious diseases that can cause health complications, even death. Diabetes can also cause serious health complications such as heart disease, blindness, kidney failure, amputation and even death. Diabetes is classified into 2, namely type 1 diabetes and type 2 diabetes, lifestyle related diabetes is type 2, so that type 2 diabetes can be prevented by improving daily lifestyle patterns.
Basically the food we eat will be converted into sugar before it takes the form of energy, to do this process the body needs the hormone insulin for the process of glucose distribution into body cells. Eating 5 times a day does not necessarily cause a person to have risk factors for diabetes, provided that the food eaten is healthy food such as low fat, low cholesterol, and high in fiber, and avoid or limit processed food products. Besides foods that contain lots of sugar or salt also need to be avoided to keep the body in good condition and avoid the risk of diabetes.
The essence of food that can be consumed in the long run is food that has a low calorie value, contains low fat and high fiber. So you can choose foods that contain lots of fruits, green vegetables, seeds and nuts. You can consume food 5 times a day, but in small portions and according to the calorie needs that you need in daily according to your activities and work.
For that you can consult your calorie needs in a day to be applied to the food needs that you can consume. You can consult a nutritionist or nutritionist who can calculate calories based on your weight, height and daily activities.
Besides food, of course you need to pay attention to your other activities such as sports or your fitness. Because exercise basically can reduce blood sugar and can increase the sensitivity of your body cells to insulin so that it can maintain / control the level of sugar in your blood. Aerobic exercise and fitness programs really help you control your body to avoid the risk of developing diabetes.
Another thing you need to avoid in order to avoid diabetes is not to smoke and avoid alcohol consumption. Because smoking and alcohol can increase the risk of diabetes many times over. Based on research, smokers have a higher risk of developing type 2 diabetes than nonsmokers.
What you need to know is that among foods that you should avoid so as not to cause you to have diabetes risk factors, including:
Red meat and processed meat. Processed meat is indeed categorized as not good for consumption too often because in processed meat there is a high content of nitrite and sodium which can trigger metabolic disorders and are at risk for diabetes.
Sweet drinks. You should limit drinks that contain sugar, such as sweet tea, coffee cream, soda, syrup, and fruit juice to reduce the risk of diabetes. Too much sugar in the body that is obtained from foods or drinks that are too high in calories and too sweet can cause the body to be immune to insulin and blood sugar levels are difficult to go down. Therefore, choose water to meet your daily fluid needs.
Refined carbohydrates. Choose foods that contain long-digested carbohydrates / complex carbohydrates such as sweet potatoes, brown rice, corn, and other complex carbohydrate sources compared to simplex carbohydrates such as white rice, white flour and white sugar. Because simplex carbohydrates can increase blood sugar levels in a short time and this can increase the risk of diabetes.
Saturated fats and trans fats. You can reduce this by avoiding fried foods and foods that contain butter, cheese, milk and meat with lots of fat.
So that we can convey, hopefully useful. Thanks.
