If you are one of the millions of people on this planet that struggle with insulin insensitivity, high blood sugar levels, Type 2 diabetes and its negative health consequences, this article is a must-read. There’s one important daily habit you can implement to take back control of your blood sugar levels, slow the progression of the Type 2 diabetes, and even reverse it.

The Single Best Daily Habit To Reverse Type 2 Diabetes

There’s no big secret and you would be hard-pressed to find a doctor or nutritionist to offer counter-advice. The single best daily habit to reverse Type 2 diabetes is to limit (or eliminate) bad fats, sugars, and refined carbohydrates.  These can include:

  • Trans fats
  • Saturated fats
  • Partially hydrogenated oils
  • Sugars
  • Sweets
  • Desserts
  • Sugary cereals
  • Most baked goods
  • Sodas
  • Fruit juices

Limiting these bad fats and sugars from your daily diet can make a tremendously positive impact on your blood sugar levels. It sounds like a challenge to limit these types of foods from your diet, but you have more control than you think you do. Others may tell you that failure is inevitable, stating, “No, no, dietary changes are too difficult.” However, the secret is focusing on the word ‘habit.’ It’s one thing to know that certain food choices are devastating to your blood sugar levels and the progression of Type 2 diabetes, but if you don’t make good choices a habit, then that knowledge does you little good. You can change the trajectory of your life and take control of your Type 2 diabetes today. You’ve made one healthy choice by reading this article, and now it’s time make another and another and another. You can achieve the health you want, but yes, it takes some grit. It takes perseverance, goal setting, and creating better habits. Here are five key aspects of creating good habits you can use to your advantage.

1. Learning

The first key to creating good habits is learning what your personal obstacles are. Your obstacles could be lust, aversion, ill will, sloth, restlessness, worry, or doubt.

Whatever they are, understanding your personality and challenges will allow you to overcome your obstacles.

2. Connectedness

Staying connected with your contacts will help you create healthy habits. Let everyone in your social circle know about your commitment to healthier choices so they can encourage you. Your friends and family members are your biggest fans, so if you involve them on your road to better health, you can turn better choices into a habit.

3. Mindfulness

Being mindful means being aware of yourself and your surroundings, being open to new experiences, and taking on challenges with purpose. A new challenge can be as simple as changing your shopping pattern at the grocer or market – try shopping on the perimeter of the store where the fresh produce and healthy proteins are. Avoid the aisles of the store as much as possible. Now, there are exceptions to that.

Nuts, seeds, and legumes are in the aisles, but doing your best to shop on the outside of the grocery store has an important impact on your shopping pattern. You’ll have healthier foods available in your cupboards every day.

4. Giving and Gratitude

Maintaining an attitude of giving and gratitude changes everything and has reciprocal rewarding effects. When you give generously and are of service to others, you’re more likely to be positive all around. When you’re feeling positive, it’s much easier to turn good choices into habits.

5. Planning

The fifth key to creating good habits is planning. Setting a date and knowing when you want to make these changes increases your willpower. Try marking different goals and changes on your calendar so you can see them every day. Believe that you stick to these dates and changes to improve your health.
