Are you overweight? Eating anything increases your risk of diabetes..
New research has shown that if you are overweight, you have an increased risk of developing type-2 diabetes, no matter how healthily you eat. This may come as a shock to many people who are ‘dieting’ in order to lose weight.
Scientists have found that when we eat food, our bodies trigger an inflammatory response. In a person of a healthy weight, this response has a positive effect on the immune system, but in someone whom is overweight, this response causes an over-production of insulin, leading to a greater risk of developing type-2 diabetes.
This recent discovery further confirms the importance of retaining a healthy body weight. We would like to point out that eating nothing will not remedy the situation, but simply the sooner you embark on a healthy lifestyle of eating real food and reaching your goal weight, the sooner your risk of type-2 diabetes diminishes whenever you eat anything.
