It was only after my studies and having gained some industry experience that I learnt that eating clean, trusting the fat loss industry and all its diets and sales hypes were setting me back the most.
I quickly learned that all diets irrespective of the name, label and promise all have to obey certain underlying principles regardless of being diabetic or not.
Every diet will cause us to limit our intake in one way or another.
Whether it be from the time of day to the types of foods we're allowed to consume, they force us to fit in with the diet rather than making the diet fit in with our lifestyle.
We see results while on these specific diets and once the diet ends, so do our results. This leaves us feeling as if we have failed when in actual fact it’s the diet that failed us. Diets restrict us and cause us to sacrifice unnecessarily.
As diabetics we sacrifice enough, don’t you think?
Keeping our sugar levels in range while enjoying our food choices is the largest key factor in a sustainable eating plan and happy life as a diabetic.
We can eat whatever foods we want to eat as long as we have our principles in line with our goals. In this case, it’s fat loss and better diabetic control.
If this all sounds familiar to you and you’ve tried diets in the past only to put the weight back on again, then you’re in the right place.
The foods inside the diabetic athletic recipe books are so delicious you’re going to think every meal is a cheat meal.
