Beating Diabetes!

February 24, 2011

The incidence of diabetes is exploding, among both adults and children. A 2006 study from the New England Journal of Medicine offers some important information. Five hundred people were examined and given the following goals:
  • Lose weight.
  • Limit fat intake to 30% of calories consumed.
  • Take in less than 10 mg of saturated fat per day.
  • Engage in moderate exercise at least 30 minutes a day.
The results were amazing! After four years the incidence of diabetes in the study group compared to national averages dropped 64% in men -- and 54% in women. Not one subject who achieved all of the goals developed diabetes! I can't think of a better reason to set goals -- and then stick to them for the long haul!
