Diabetes Type 2

Lifestyle Recommendations:

•   Reduce lifestyle stressors and establish boundaries for emotional well-being

•   Avoid a sedentary lifestyle; incorporate high-intensity interval training in a physician-approved exercise program to               improve insulin sensitivity, metabolism and mitochondrial health

•   Monitor fasting blood sugar and fasting insulin levels regularly; consider testing for environmental toxins which have           been linked to alterations in glucose tolerance

•   Stay well-hydrated with plenty of pure, filtered water

•   Make relaxation a priority; add meditation, yoga, and/or prayer daily; consider use of biofeedback devices

Dietary Tips and Caveats:

•   Replenish blood sugar by eating a healthy high protein breakfast, preferably by or before 10:00 am or within 2 hours of     waking; eat every 4 hours to keep insulin and glucose levels normal; include use of PaleoMeal® and/or Whey Cool™ or        PurePea™ protein

•   Eat an anti-inflammatory diet that is rich in omega-3 fats; include olive oil, raw nuts and seeds, wild caught fatty, cold-         water fish, grass-fed beef, nut butters, omega-3 eggs, 2 ounce of dark chocolate (at least 70% cocoa)

•   Eat low glycemic foods that are high in fiber (add ground flax or chia seeds) and legumes such as lentils, chickpeas               and edamame beans

•   Have several servings of colorful, organic vegetables and low sugar fruits; concentrate on low-glycemic vegetables                such as rainbow chard, kale, bok choy, spinach, purple cabbage, asparagus, Brussels sprouts, broccoli and broccoli              sprouts, and endive as well as low-glycemic fruits such as berries, plums, apples, peaches, pears, pomegranates and            cherries

•   Snack on healthy proteins and fats such as raw nuts, seeds, avocados, coconuts flakes and Paleobars™ to balance                 blood sugar throughout the day; divide 3 meals into 5-6 smaller meals if digestion is sluggish or if fatigued

•   Use herbs and spices high in antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties such as turmeric, rosemary, ginger and basil •   Avoid foods that spike blood such as high-sugar snacks and beverages (includes sodas, processed fruit juices), refined        carbohydrates, and high fructose corn syrup
