"Psychologists will tell you that it takes 21 days to break a bad habit and replace it with an improved one. Changing unhealthy eating habits is no exception to this idea." Gretchen Scalpi

According to the Diabetes Prevention Program presented by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) diet and exercise could dramatically reduce the chances of developing diabetes. The DPP's results indicate that millions of high-risk people can delay or avoid developing type 2 diabetes by losing weight through regular physical activity and a diet low in fat and calories. Weight loss and physical activity lower the risk of diabetes by improving the body's ability to use insulin and process glucose. Participants in the lifestyle intervention group-those receiving intensive individual counseling and motivational support on effective diet, exercise, and behavior modification-reduced their risk of developing diabetes by 58 percent.
“If you have type 2 diabetes, your doctor probably encouraged you to make some dietary changes to help get your blood sugar under control. If you understand that blood sugar control is needed to the prevent complications of diabetes, you have an important reason to continually remind you "why" you need to make this change. For any change to last, the reason has to be important to you,” says Gretchen Scalpi (registered dietitian, certified diabetes educator, and certified Wellcoach®).
