Is Vegan Diet The Best Natural Prevention for Diabetes?


What is diabetes prevention about?
Diabetes prevention is about preventing your body from reaching a state of insulin impairment - poor usage/production. In order to achieve this, you need to look into your lifestyle changes such as exercise and diet.

So, is a vegan/vegetarian diet effective?

We know diabetes can be controlled with dietary changes and exercise. Next question: is a vegan diet necessary in order to see a positive effect? Or will simply controlling your diet be enough?

One of the main misconceptions about vegan/vegetarian diets we hear most are: "you'll look unhealthy!" or "there aren't enough nutrients in just plant alone!" or etc. This is not true. You can find all the nutrition  in a well-balanced omnivorous diet can be found in a vegan/vegetarian diet too. This is because plants are equally if not more rich in certain vitamins and minerals than meat.

According to a study by the National Institute of Health (US), a plant-based diet was superior to an individualized (containing meat) diet in the long-term for weight loss and cholesterol control. Those in the plant-based diet group also had to take less medication for blood sugar control. Plus, plant-based dieters also had no nutrient deficiency at the end - busting a common myth.

If you plan to try it out, take it slow and make small changes as you go along.

We recommend to start off with 2-3 vegan/vegetarian meals a week. Better yet, try the Power Plate formula to kick-start your journey!
