Avoiding diabetes and believing you don’t have to give up sugar, is the wrong way to think about your health. Avoiding diabetes is also, more than removing sugar from your diet. It is also adding some folate and riboflavin rich foods. Finding the folate and riboflavin rich foods will help your methylating cycles function efficiently. The other thing you need is zinc and magnesium. Eating your nutrients will help you feel full and you will avoid excess weight gain. Feeling fit at any age means taking care of your body with food.
If you have a sweet tooth, there are birch xylitol gum and mints. There are other products made with corn, and corn is a food no one uses, because it is so low glycemic. Everyone prefers Birch Xylitol.
This post is also about not being hungry. Wouldn’t you love to know exactly what to eat to digest well, not hurt and find your best weight?
There is a test that pinpoints your exact best foods. Using this list, you and I will discuss how to combine these foods to feel fit at any age, and to power your metabolic processes.
Removing sugar with alternatives is especially good if you have a sweet tooth. This also is a wetting agent which will help prevent cavities as you age. Dry mouth causes more cavitiies. My dentist recommended biotene, and I found a fun way to prevent dry mouth.
Substituting wheat and other white products can also help you avoid diabetes. A beginning post where there is a gluten-free bread made. People are always looking for alternatives to some of their favorites. I also had a friend who made a garbanzo bean flour muffin, which is posted on the recipes for Blood Type O. I made fig newtons for Blood type A and AB. Using alternative flours like pea flour makes the dough nice and pliable. It was an adaptation I used after making some muffins that were too crumbly to put ghee on. Someone posted an easy recipe on Facebook, and I put it here for you. Commercial ghee is outrageously expensive.
I also added some recipes for a loaf of alternative banana bread for blood type O. Notice the alternative sweetener, monk fruit. Eliminating wheat and 99% of sugar will help you avoid diabetes. Supporting your methylating cycles will help you avoid diabetes.
Folate and Riboflavin rich foods vary among the blood types. You need to find the ones that you like eating. Many people like Caesar salads. This is a good place to start
Where and what are riboflavin and folate rich foods? You can find them. On the recipes page, because there are some there. However, there is a book full of folate recipes I created just for people who need a ton of them like I do.
Methylating cycles keep our body running efficiently, and adding cofactors to your diet supports these methylating cycles. So the same foods that help you avoid cancer also help you avoid diabetes. Keeping the methylating cycles strong like the main MTHFR can help the COMT and help avoid cancer.
Removing white foods will help remove excess calories that promote weight gain. Eating from the outer perimeter of the store, will give you the energy and stamina to continue day in and day out so you can help others.
Don’t decline, you can live a joyous life, knowing you are doing everything you can. While feeding your methylating cycles, and avoiding extra calories that do nothing. Avoiding disease is also important, and these are simple ways to think about adding good food to your diet.
