Overweight diabetics, pre-diabetics, and glucose sensitive individuals suffer a double risk of health complications due to insulin troubles and obesity. Weight loss solutions don’t always offer a wide variety of options.
Small frequent meals, low carbs, and protein all help to avoid blood sugar or insulin spikes during the day. Focus28 products are designed and formulated to have minimal impact on blood glucose levels. Most Focus28 diet foods are low glycemic and the carbohydrates used are complex carbs that are complemented by fiber which helps slow the absorption of carbohydrates.
A substantial portion of Focus28 diet food calories are derived from protein. Protein does does not usually affect glucose levels adversely. Though high amounts of protein are eaten daily, they’re consumed in small, nutritionally dense meals, every 2-3 hours. Small frequent meals, low carbs, and protein all help to avoid blood sugar or insulin spikes or drops.
Nutrition is important for glucose sensitive dieters
Maintaining a balanced diet and losing weight can vastly improve or reduce medical complications of diabetes or near-diabetic conditions. Focus28 diabetic programs are carefully formulated to provide optimum weight loss, safely, without peaks or valleys in glucose levels. When combined with regular monitoring, supervision*, and additional healthy meals, Focus28 can be the ideal weight loss diet solution for glucose sensitive individuals.
Diabetes Mellitus (Type 2), Prediabetes, and Insulin Resistance
Diabetes and insulin related conditions are a growing health concern, affecting more than 25 million Americans. Having diabetes means the body cannot properly regulate glucose levels in the blood. Insufficient insulin is produced or the body’s cells have developed a resistance and higher than normal levels of insulin are required. In either case, if left untreated, it can lead to serious health consequences. For many people, diabetes can be controlled or prevented/delayed (if there’s a family history) by understanding its risk factors and making important lifestyle changes. Minimizing sugar and carbs in the diet and exercising daily are important steps. Diabetes is directly related to obesity so losing weight is also incredibly helpful in managing or reversing diabetes or diabetic-like conditions. Doctors will often prescribe weight loss as part of the treatment of diabetic conditions since a lower body mass index (BMI) translates into less strain on the pancreas and generally improved insulin response.
Focus28 has created a weight loss program and has formulated a special line of “diabetes friendly” nutritional products to help individuals with type 2 diabetes lose weight safely and effectively. The calories, carbohydrates, and sugars in the Focus28 Diabetic-Friendly Program fall within the American Diabetes Association (ADA) diet guidelines.
