So in today’s video, what I want to do is actually go over the actual one drink that a diabetic should stay away from. And it’s pretty interesting because more and more that I work with diabetics, I see that a lot of diabetics I work with, they want to get better. They’re trying to lose weight. They’re trying to get their energy better. They’re trying to lessen their medication.
They hate going back to the doctor and the doctor saying, hey, you need another pill. However, they make changes in their diet that they probably shouldn’t. So I want to go over one particular thing that diabetics do that they should not be doing. So let’s talk about the different types of diets. Number one is you have Paleo diet, you have Keto diet, you have all the different Atkins diets and all the diabetic diets, right?
However, the one diet that is probably the worst I’ve seen when it comes to actually helping the metabolism is actually doing smoothies. Now, I know what you may have seen, I know you may have heard, but smoothies actually, for a diabetic, is not good. And a big part of that has to do with the fact that when they get food into their body or something in their body, the fact that they go through the simulation process where they’re chewing, right? And they’re creating the ability to create enzymes for that food, and it goes through slowly, is what actually helps the blood sugar regulate and kind of stabilize. So whenever you do something with sugar in it, where it’s broken down, even if it’s all vegetables and it’s kale or something like that, doing smoothie is actually not ideal because when you drink the smoothie, you’re actually not chewing, and it actually goes to your body pretty quick for the fact that it’s not bulky and you’re not going through a process.
So I don’t recommend actually doing smoothies for someone. Now, the next question people ask is, well, what should I drink? Well, the common sense stuff. Water is good. Some of these flavored waters are good as long as they don’t have too much junk and sweeteners in it.
Water with lemon, herbal teas, all those are good. Green tea for some, diabetics is good. For others, it’s not. So you have to really know how to read labs to know if they’re good or not. But the key thing is that you really got to dig deep.
You really got to do labs to figure out what’s exactly the things to eat and what’s not. The things to eat. The way I approach it, is very customized, so I want to know exactly, specifically for that person, what they need, as opposed to just a one size fits all approach, which obviously doesn’t work. It may work for a little bit, but it doesn’t work long term. Anyway, I hope you got a lot out of this.
If you’re interested in finding out more information about what I do, there should be a link below on a webinar. And there also should be a link if you want to talk with me one on one or someone from my team to see whether or not we could actually help you reverse your diabetes or a loved one. All right, so thank you very much for watching, and have a great day.
