Introducing Counterweight Plus: New Regimen To Counter Diabetes
One of the pandemic diseases that’s been plunging the world is Type 2 Diabetes. Type 2 Diabetes is often triggered when you’re overweight and your body has a hard time producing insulin in order to regulate your blood sugar levels. This progressive condition can lead to heart disease, kidney, nerve damage, and even blindness. Is there any way to undo the effects of Type 2 Diabetes? The good news is that there is! It may not “magically disappear”, but with remission and healthy lifestyle, you can ditch taking your maintenance tablets and live a free life. This is good news brought to us by NHS, especially since around 5-10% of the population in the UK are obese and diagnosed with type 2 Diabetes.
How to Start Reversing Your Type 2 Diabetes?
To start off, you need to lose at least 10% off your body weight. We’ll start with the 10% to achieve your healthy lifestyle gradually. Professor of Nutrition at Glasgow University Mike Lean said that he’s optimistic that we can reduce the consumption of diabetes maintenance tablets by taking off at least 12-15 kg above their body weight. This was based on an analysis paper in the BMJ, in a study they conducted.
“One of the great tragedies is that we’ve known this for about a hundred years and all the treatments have ever done is reduce the blood sugar – this is the consequence, but what drives it is the weight.
Lean also claims that the easiest indicator that an individual is at risk of acquiring type 2 Diabetes is if he or she has a fat tummy. An example for this is if a man has a waist of 36 inches and 32 inches for a woman. In order to lose that excess fat, they encourage their patients to engage in high-intensity interval exercise rather than cardio or strength training. This is because HIIT exercise only needs about 15 minutes of your time, it won’t interfere with your busy schedule unlike with cardio, where you need at least 30 minutes to one hour to commit in your exercise workout. In which, most people fail to commit in long term.
However, even with HIIT workouts, Lean was aware that it may not work for everyone else. He is aware that individual body has unique needs that we need to address. One type of food that works for you may not be working with the other one. It may quite result in the opposite one. That’s why Lean acknowledges the fact that so many weight loss programs fail because they basically force a person to follow a regimen that may or may not work for them. That’s why, he formulated this diet program designed not only to help their Diabetic patient in losing weight but also in addressing their individual, and unique needs.
Lean Is Set to Launch Counterweight Plus to Help Their Patients Remission From Type 2 Diabetes
Lean is optimistic to introduce his program Counterweight Plus. Even if the program is still in its experimental stage, he can now see the positive effects of the program on patients. The program will involve reintroducing foods to their patients. What’s different about Lean’s program is that they take the time to know their patient first (family background, tradition or culture, food restrictions, preferences, and medical background) before formulating their diet plan. So you can be assured that their designed and formulated diet regimen will definitely work for you since they designed it specifically for you. Not only that, but it also helps you shed off your weight in order to get rid of your Type 2 Diabetes.
Aside from eating nutritious foods (that are healthy and in lieu of your preferences and restrictions), they will also design formula drinks in order to help you replenish your nutrition. For example, if you have lactose intolerance, your body may have a problem with meeting your calcium intake. This is where their formula shake will step in. The formula drinks they’ll give you contain zero fat and sugar, so you can be assured that what you’re consuming is all natural and healthy. Throughout the program, you won’t consume any alcohol too, which can disrupt not only your metabolism but also your healthy lifestyle.
