When you found you have Type 2 diabetes, you no doubt experienced a wave of emotions – concern, confusion, even fear and anger. The good news is there’s a lot you can do to become healthy and improve your quality of life.
There’s a common saying that goes by the tone of ‘you are what you eat’. Surely you’ve heard this before. If you haven’t, you’re probably aware of what it dictates.
You are what you eat. How much truth is there to this statement? Is this one of those occasions where the truth is only as valid as your beliefs? Or is this accurate regardless of your personal thoughts and feelings on the subject?
Well, you can’t suggest your body is entirely shaped by the foods that comprise your diet and the sum of your eating habits and behaviors. With that said, of course these are crucial factors in the grand scheme of things. Your eating tendencies will play a pivotal role in shaping not only your body, but also your health. Moreover, there are other factors we must be careful not to overlook, such as the amount of physical activity you engage in and how often you refrain from substances that have toxic effects on your body.
