Have you ever had this happen to you?
I decided to make some lifestyle changes and immediately started recognizing pushback, procrastination, and just plain resistance.
In my case, it showed up after I started research for a new book about what stops people from making changes. I thought about diabetics who don’t make the type of changes that result in better health. I’m more aware of this since my husband has Type 2 diabetes.
But it’s more than just the diabetes issue.
I researched brain health, sleep habits, willpower, nutrition, exercise, triggers that welcome inertia or create changes, and more. Scientific answers… empathetic answers… more questions.
With all the health concerns and solutions blasting the airwaves, it’s easy to get confused about what’s good and what isn’t. It’s a catch 22.
Sometimes it’s easier to NOT make changes. Skip the workout and check the pantry for snacks. What’s on TV tonight?
Q: What are some realistic steps I can take to prevent Diabetes (or reverse Type 2)?
A: Thanks for asking! Here are 3 Basic Steps in the 3 most important areas of our health.
Q: “What’s the single biggest obstacle I’ll face when trying to overcome diabetes and regain my health?”
A: Your biggest obstacle – after realizing what diabetes means and how it will affect your body and future – will be the mindset you choose. You’ll need to embrace some lifestyle changes to minimize your risks and regain your health.
I wrote a book last year, Diabetes Diet Options as a labor of love to encourage and help as many individuals as possible prevent or reverse their diagnosis. My research began in 2009 with my husband’s diagnosis of Type 2 diabetes.
