Are You Overweight? Eating Anything Increases Your Risk Of Diabetes..


New research has shown that if you are overweight, you have an increased risk of developing type-2 diabetes, no matter how healthily you eat. This may come as a shock to many people who are ‘dieting’ in order to lose weight.

Scientists have found that when we eat food, our bodies trigger an inflammatory response. In a person of a healthy weight, this response has a positive effect on the immune system, but in someone whom is overweight, this response causes an over-production of insulin, leading to a greater risk of developing type-2 diabetes.

This recent discovery further confirms the importance of retaining a healthy body weight. We would like to point out that eating nothing will not remedy the situation, but simply the sooner you embark on a healthy lifestyle of eating real food and reaching your goal weight, the sooner your risk of type-2 diabetes diminishes whenever you eat anything.

To put together your own weekly menu of healthy breakfasts, midday meals, evening meals and snacks, visit our recipe catalogue – there is plenty of choice to alternate between to allow you to achieve your weight loss goal with ease.
