Take Charge of Your Wellbeing

What is health? I believe that true health is a feeling of wellness that allows us to enjoy every day to the fullest. Believe it or not, tadalafil you have a lot of control over your health, hospital even if you’ve been diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes.

Taking the time to learn what steps you can take to bring about change for yourself will give you the opportunity to take charge of your wellbeing.

In my last post, pharmacy I began a series on tips to increase your energy levels. In this post we’ll look at my second vital tip for improving your daily life:

Eat a good quality diet, as low in glycemic index (GI) as possible.

This may be a new one for you, but my clients and I have found that changing our diet from the classic “low fat” to one that is focused more on “low glycemic” content has improved our energy drastically. I have had people come to me after just 2 weeks on the low GI diet absolutely amazed by not only their improved energy, but also by the weight loss that has been kick started by the process – even middle aged men who are notoriously difficult to inspire to change their eating habits.

Fundamentally, low GI means tweaking your food so that you introduce low glycemic foods in place of any high glycemic ones. For example, swap orange juice and white toast for breakfast (both high GI) for a glass of water with a slice of lemon in it, an orange, and wholemeal toast high in whole grains and seeds. Even better to omit bread altogether (which is what I have done) and substitute porridge or a recognised low GI shake with fruit.

Obviously this is a complex process, which I do not wish to make sound threatening. If you are anything like many of the people I have talked to, you are fed up with the roller coaster of going from one diet to another, only to gain the weight lost in the interim. This approach is different, and is fundamentally a change to your lifestyle.

I assure you that simply eating a diet of low glycemic foods will increase your energy and boost your overall wellbeing. Try lowering your glycemic index for a couple of weeks and see how your body reacts.

Stay tuned for my next post on a highly controversial topic: nutritional supplements. I look forward to sharing my views and insight with you very soon.

Be well!

A Simple Tip to Increase Your Energy

Are you a person with Type 2 diabetes who is fed up with feeling exhausted halfway through the day? Do you find it difficult to focus and wish you could be more productive?

I find that a lack of energy is a common side effect of diabetes, prostate often more so when it is poorly controlled. I also find that people who do not yet realise that they have pre-diabetes may experience tiredness and lethargy as an early sign.

Over the next few posts, I will be outlining some vital tips that can help you increase your energy levels so that you can start living your best life possible.

The first tip that I want to address may seem to be an obvious choice:

Drink plenty of water every day.

I frequently find that diabetics who are having problems with energy, as well as complications like migraines and other headaches, are simply not drinking enough water.
Having a tall glass of water with a slice of lemon in it is a great way to start the day. In addition to the improved flavour, the lemon slice gives you extra Vitamin C while also acting as an alkalising agent. So many of us in the modern world are eating diets heavy in too many processed foods, animal fats and grains, which gives us an acidic skew to our systems. Adding the alkalising agent of a lemon slice helps to combat that.

Once I started to begin each morning with a glass of water, I quickly began to see a difference in my energy levels. I now follow my glass of cold water with 2 additional cups of hot water with 3 slices of lemon in it, putting a little cold water in first so that I don’t steam out all of the Vitamin C. I started taking these as a refreshing alternative to tea when I recognised that I didn’t need as much tea as I was drinking and I’ve gotten great results.

Give these methods a try some time – they taste great and I think you may be pleasantly surprised. And, keep your eyes peeled for my next post on how to control your glycemic index (GI) to keep those energy levels on the rise!

Be healthy!
