“No Diet” Method for Better Blood Sugar Control
If you have type 2 diabetes… well, between trying to lose weight and lower your blood sugar levels, it’s a safe bet that you’re SICK and tired of being stuck on the diet merry-go-round.
Sure, it’s easy to follow any diet for a while. But nothing really sticks in the LONG run. So, you’re constantly starting a new one.
If that sounds all too familiar, you’ll want to keep reading.
Because I’m going to share a “secret” method to manage your type 2 diabetes by lowering your blood sugar levels AND losing weight… WITHOUT ever counting another calorie.
When I eat, I want to enjoy what I’m eating.
I don’t want to turn it into a math lesson by tracking and adding every single thing that goes into my mouth throughout the day.
It’s no wonder these kinds of diets tend not to fail in the long run. Who wants to do that for the rest of their lives?
Great news… You don’t have to.
Researchers followed 75 people with type 2 diabetes for six months.
One group counted calories, while the other followed time-restricted eating (intermittent fasting). This means they limited their eating window to eight hours per day.
Both methods were effective at reducing belly fat and improving blood sugar levels. However, the group that counted time (instead of calories) lost slightly more weight.
Folks who limit their eating window cut their calorie count by approximately 300 calories daily without even trying.
This was the case even though there was NO restriction on what or how much was eaten.
The group that counted calories was asked to cut 500 calories daily, but because counting calories was “too tedious,” they only cut an average of 200 calories.
Both groups also significantly improved their HbA1c (average blood sugar over three months) by almost a full point.
They started at an 8 and dropped to a 7.
This is a BIG deal since dropping down just a bit more to 6.5 would indicate that their diabetes was in remission.
Both groups also lost about the same amount of inflammatory belly fat and waist circumference.
The bottom line is losing weight and improving your blood sugar levels without counting a single calorie is entirely possible.
P.S. THIS causes 70% of type 2 diabetes cases.
