Get Active and Eat Healthy If You Want to Prevent Diabetes

April 11, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 101

The experts have recognized the link between diabetes and obesity.

In today's day and age, obesity is becoming more and more common. With this rise in obesity, we have seen a rise in diabetes. This link is causing the life span of those who are obese and diabetic to be decreased by 10 or 20 years depending on the severity. The worst part of this is that many of those who are obese and diabetic are children and those in their teen years.

However, this type of situation can be prevented. Many times obesity is caused by overeating and inactivity. Preventing this type of situation can be handled rather simply. Watch what you and your children eat and get active. Watching what you eat does not mean that you can't eat what you want. It just means that you must eat in moderation. Don't overload your plate because you think you are starving. The key is to start out small and stop when you no longer feel hungry. Eat small meals so that your body has a chance to digest everything properly. This will help to avoid overloading your body on sugars and fat.

Being active doesn't mean that you should be out there working out every day and running 5 miles every morning. All you need to do is get up and move around. Go for a walk, do some extra cleaning, take a bike ride, and so on. These little things can add up quite easily and before you know it you are feeling better, losing weight, becoming fit and healthy. A little activity goes a long way. Including the whole family or a buddy to do things with can help bring the support you need and make it more fun. Diabetes and obesity are related but they don't have to be related to you.

Take the time to learn about obesity and diabetes as you are already doing. Do some research and teach your children what it means to be healthy. Show them that your and their life is worth living. A few small lifestyle changes can make a huge difference in obesity and diabetes. Lowering the risk of diabetes in the obese means lowering obesity as a whole. Obesity doesn't have to be a problem of the future. It can be something you overcame and conquered. Get out there and get active and eat healthy. Take it one step at a time.
