Diabesity? What is that and what does that mean for you? Are we eating our way to sickness?
Diabesity is the newest term that combines diabetes and obesity and shows the new trend the world is heading to regarding our eating habits and lifestyle choices that will literally be killing us. This term refers to the continuum of health problems ranging from mild insulin resistance and overweight to obesity and diabetes, is the single biggest global threat of our time. It is the leading causes of heart disease, dementia, cancer, and premature death in the world and is almost entirely caused by environmental and lifestyle factors. This means that is is almost 100 percent preventable and curable. The interesting fact is that in the year 2020, 1 in 2 American's affected, 90 percent of who will not be diagnosed.
Gaining just 11-16 pounds doubles the risk of type 2 diabetes, while gaining 17-24 pounds triples the risk. We are becoming the United States of Diabetes. But there is great news, there is a solution available, one that is accessible and scalable, one that is available to everyone and prevents, treats, and reverses diabesity at a fraction of the cost. The book, Blood Sugar Solution by Mark Hyman, M.D., provides the solution for individuals, communities, and nations and each of us has the power to transform this problem.
In this book, Dr. Hyman introduces the reader to understanding the new epidemic across the globe, and why our current approaches to the problem don't work. He dispels the medical myths that prevent us from effectively addressing the epidemic such as type 2 diabetes is not reversible. He explores new research on the biology of food addiction and why food cravings and overeating are not your fault. He explores how Big Food, Big Farming and Big Pharma fuel the epidemic of obesity, diabetes, and chronic disease across the blog and explains what we collectively can do about it.
He teaches you the Seven Steps to Treating Diabesity by finding out which problems you have through quizzes and personalizing your approach toward healing. You will also learn how to prepare your mind, body and kitchen for the six week program which is a practical six-step, six-week program you can do on your own or with your health care provider. He also discusses the environmental toxins we expose our bodies to and how to reduce our exposure.
I received The Blood Sugar Solution by Mark Hyman, M.D. compliments of B & B Media Group for my honest review. I've always been a huge believer in natural foods and eliminating the exposure to environmental toxins and ingredients because I believe we are eating our way to sickness if we don't. This is a great resource to formulate a plan to get healthy, learn what is making you sick and take control of your health again. I will plan on using the information in this book to help me and my family make smarter choices when it comes to eating, cleaning and staying fit in order to live longer lives. I would easily rate this book a 4.5 out of 5 stars and think it's a perfect resource for anyone looking to get back to a healthier version of you!
