Restructuring your daily meals for longer than a week can help you realize that sugar might not be totally to blame for all of your sluggish behavior. Sassos says making a longer diet change can push you to also prioritize getting enough sleep each night, and also work on ensuring you're properly hydrated each and every day. "Getting enough sleep and drinking enough water are often neglected," Sassos says. "No one prioritizes this in their routine, and yet they're the simplest things that you can do for your body for overall health and to wardoff sugar cravings."
Diabetes has been one of the major health concerns across the globe. It is a chronic lifestyle disease affecting almost 6 percent of the world population, as per the World Health Organization (WHO). In fact, WHO estimates that India has approximately 8.7 percent diabetic population in the age group between 20 and 70 years. A study, published in the journal Lancet, stated that more than 98 million Indians would be affected by diabetes by 2030. Hence, experts recommend a healthy and well-balanced lifestyle to manage the blood sugar levels in our body. "A chronic disease, diabetes has no permanent cure. Experts suggest medication just to control the blood sugar level and keep it near normal. Hence, an overall healthy lifestyle is a must for diabetes management," stated Health and Wellness Coach Preeti Rao.
Some detox plans last a few days, other last may last a few weeks. One of the more popular detox plans is “Master Cleanse.” If you’re a fan of Beyoncé, you might recall that she did the “Master Cleanse” in order to slim down for the film Dreamgirls. “Master Cleanse” consists of drinking at least two liters each day of the following concoction: lemon juice, maple syrup (the real stuff), and cayenne pepper. Oh, and don’t forget the laxative tea and salt water flushes. The premise of this plan, as with many detox plans, is to flush out toxins, clean out your colon, and provide just enough calories (from the maple syrup) so that you don’t pass out.

Author Sidebar: Back when I was diabetic, my endocrinologist told me that a cleanse and detox would not help me with my diabetes. When I asked him why, he couldn’t give me a good answer. So, I did some research and decided to try a raw juice and green smoothie detox. Let me tell you something — I don’t want to get too graphic, but, after I drank a couple of green smoothies and went to the bathroom, I felt like I dropped 20 pounds! 🙂
