Well I guess the good news is that you are pre
diabetic. This means that you can get on top of it and see vast improvements right away.
Since your body's cells use glucose as its primary fuel, any extra fat surrounding the cells creates a difficulty for insulin to shuttle in glucose. For some people, just having over 5 lbs of extra fat can trigger diabetes reactions.
Following a simple diet that is outlined below will help you loose the excess fat and drastically lower your risk of type 2 diabetes. You need to eliminate or vastly reduce any white foods such as potatoes and white flour. Starchy veggies should be limited to one cup a day. Do not use any oils such as olive, canola, etc. If you can follow this basic food plan, you will be able to keep your pancreas running and feel great as well.
The idea is to try and fill up with 1 lb of leafy greens (romaine, cabbage) adn 1 lb of cooked greens (kale, collards, etc). Eat until you are full. It is important that you do not overeat. Let me rephrase that, if you are full and did not get in all of your greens, do not fret. Eat no more than 1 oz of nuts and 1/2 avocado a day.
Breakfast- bowl fresh fruit with berries, such as fresh blackberries, strawberries, blueberries
orange, kiwi, grapefruit, green apples, cantalope, lettuce, cucumber, celery, fennel
6 almonds or 4 walnut halves or other raw nut or seeds, like sunflower
Lunch- Green salad (all raw veggies) flavored vinegar or lemon and orange
Vegetable/Bean Soup ( ? vegetable juice and ? water as a base
then add beans, lentils, adzuki beans and onion, zuchinni, leek and other vegetables, spices, but no salt.
One fresh fruit for desert
Dinner- Salad or raw vegetables such as carrots, celery, peppers, cauliflower, snow peas,
salsa or chili dip- tomato paste, onion, mild and spicy peppers, chili
powder, garlic, plum tomatoes, almond butter, fig vinegar, red beans
eggplant-humus dip made by blending baked eggplant with unsalted chick peas, scallions, garlic, raw unhulled sesame seeds, (lightly toast half the sesame seeds) lemon and a little bit of horse-radish.
Steamed Green Vegetable - any green vegetable okay, no oil or salt on top
Baked, Stewed or Roasted Vegetables - red peppers, baked mushrooms, eggplant
peppers, onions, cauliflower, tomatos, frozen pea
(cinnamon, tumaric, currants)
One fresh fruit or frozen fruit desert (frozen strawberries and an orange)
Cantalope blended with one cup ice
I hope this helps!!
