For all those who have a sweet tooth and can’t live even a second without eating sweets, you’ll know how much it hurts when you’re not allowed to eat a chocolate. It’s like you’re being denied your birthright. Well, if you want to continue having a sweet tooth all your life then Diabetes is something you should try and prevent yourself from acquiring. Here are 5 ways to keep the sweetness in your life.
1. Spice it up:
Spices are a boon and Indian food is known to contain a lot of spices. But who knew that spices can also help control diabetes. Cinnamon contains compounds that can activate enzymes that stimulate insulin receptors. It also reduces blood fats that may develop a risk of acquiring diabetes.
2. Take a chill pill:
There’s no such thing as a chill pill existing in this world so don’t go searching for it at the chemist. A chill pill refers to a stress buster which you definitely need. When you’re under stress your body goes into flight mode and your blood sugar levels start flying high to prepare you for action.
3. Fit into your old Jeans:
So losing weight gives you a double advantage. Losing just 5% of your weight can totally slash the risk of you developing diabetes. Well, that doesn’t mean you should get blown off by the wind. Just eat healthily and stay fit.
4. Drink Coffee:
A cup of coffee a day keeps diabetes away. Just one cup might not do the trick, Harvard School of Public Health found that big-time coffee drinkers—those who downed more than 6 daily cups—had a 29 to 54% lower risk of developing type 2 diabetes. Decaf Coffee won’t help you at all but other stuff that contains Caffeine like Tea, Soda, Chocolates, etc. might save you.
5. Perfect sleep is important:
We know that everyone loves sleep more than anything else in the world. Sleeping for more than 8 hours triples your odds of acquiring diabetes. Just like oversleeping even lack of sleep is bad so try to get 6-8 hours of sleep daily.
