New Approaches to Losing Weight and Gaining Blood Sugar Control
If you have diabetes and struggle to get rid of those extra pounds, here are four approaches that might help you succeed.
Fasting: Intermittent fasting has been shown to be effective for both weight loss and diabetes resolution. With this approach, you eat a very low-calorie diet (500 calories if you’re a woman, 600 if you’re a man, split between two meals) two days a week, but not on successive days. “Just make sure you talk with your physician first to ensure fasting will not interact with your medications,” she advises.
