You can't avoid having diabetes, but there are things you can do to manage it and get healthier than you were before, says the Denver diabetes clinic:
The risk of diabetes is reduced by weight loss. In a significant study, participants who reduced their body weight by roughly 7% through dietary and exercise modifications experienced a nearly 60% drop in their risk of developing diabetes.
Fiber-rich foods aid in weight loss and lower your risk of developing diabetes. Consume a variety of healthy, fiber-rich foods, such as tomatoes, peppers, and other vegetables and fruits that grow on trees.
Due to their high calorie content, fatty meals should be eaten in moderation. You should include a variety of foods high in unsaturated fats, also referred to as "good fats," in your diet to help with weight loss and diabetes management.
Eat non-starchy foods and legumes. Non-starchy vegetables include leafy greens, broccoli, and cauliflower, for instance. Legumes include beans, chickpeas, and lentils.
