Weight loss may help control blood sugar levels
Maintaining the right balance of carbohydrates and proteins in meals together with right time gap can help in a smooth journey of weight loss and appropriate sugar levels, it has been revealed.
'Weight loss' and 'controlling blood sugars' are two seats of a sea-saw, hence a balance between the two phases is very important to maintain the health of an individual, Diabetic Living India magazine reported.
It was suggested that if a person with diabetes is given a crash diet with very less proteins and fibre, there will be muscle wasting which in turn can affect the insulin action. Eating less or skipping your meals can go against your aim to reduce blood sugar.
However, blood sugar control and proteins can help one in preventing complications of diabetes like neuropathy, retinopathy and nephropathy.
Complex carbohydrates not only help in controlling sugars but also to give satiety in turn helping a person to curb hunger and reduce weight.
But, only diet alone can't help lose weight, exercise or daily walk can enhance your performance, productivity and longevity.
