Diabetes Develop in Men With Less Body Fat; What Should You Eat?

Men may develop diabetes even if they have lower body fat than women.   A recent study shows that even if the man has a lower body mass index than a woman, he is more likely to develop type 2 diabetes.   The cause my be fat distributions: men tend to carry weight around the abdominal region and liver whilst women carry fat around the hips and breasts.  While the absolutely best preventative measure for diabetes is to consult a doctor, there are also a number of super foods that can be eaten to help prevent them.

  1. Cinnamon – Studies show that cinnamon can decrease fasting blood sugar by 10 to 30 percent depending on the dose. Cinnamon may also improve cholesterol levels in diabetics according to small research studies
  2. Chromium – When we eat carbohydrates, blood sugar levels increase in the blood stream. Chromium, a mineral that’s needed in the body in trace amounts, appears to be directly involved with carbohydrate metabolism by playing a role in insulin sensitivity. The majority of research has shown that dietary supplementation of chromium is beneficial in moderating glucose levels by improving the insulin response. It may also have a positive impact on cholesterol levels.
  3. Vinegar – Accumulating evidence indicates that vinegar may mitigate blood sugar levels following a carbohydrate-rich meal. Vinegar contains acetic acid, which may slow gastric emptying. This is especially important for diabetics because a delay in gastric emptying means a slower, more gradual absorption of nutrients, which makes for a more gradual rise of blood sugar in the bloodstream.
  4. Coffee – Another article shows new study of nearly 70,000 women without diabetes found that those who drank more than one cup of coffee at lunchtime were 34 percent less likely to develop type 2 diabetes than non-coffee drinkers.Women who drank more than one cup of coffee every day at lunchtime reduced their risk of type 2 diabetes — by 34 percent — compared to women who drank no coffee at lunchtime.
  5. Dairy – A recent study that examined the intake of trans-palmitoleic acid (TPA) and the development of type 2 diabetes. TPA is a fatty acid that is not produced naturally in the human body, but can be obtained from dairy products.
  6. Leafy Greens – Here’s another reason to add more veggies to your diet: new research touts the benefits of green leafy vegetables for lowering the risk of type-2 diabetes
  7. Magnesium – research found the more magnesium you consume, the less likely you may be to develop the disease.  Magnesium is a mineral that plays a role in glucose (sugar) metabolism, a process which is compromised in people with diabetes
  8. Bran – A study shows that a diet that includes plenty of whole grains may help lower the risk of developing Type 2 diabetes and heart disease.  Whole grains actually have the potential to help protect the heart even among those who have already been diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes.
  9. Brown Rice – Brown rice contains a fiber and vitamin-rich outer skin–called the bran– that is stripped away when processing white rice.  Substituting brown rice for white rice may lower risk of type 2 diabetes in both men and women
  10. Berries- Berries are rich in many flavonoids, particularly anthocyanins, which are responsible for their blue/purple/red color.  Anthocyanins are antioxidants that have been shown to have been shown to impede cancer cell growth, reduce your risk of heart disease and diabetes to name a few benefits.
