Diabetes And Fad Diets
There are many fad diets on the market. Most of these diets suggest eliminating some foods while increasing the intake of other foods. Some of the diets purposely cause ketosis, which can be harmful. Diabetics are at higher risk than the average person for running into serious complications from these diets, but no one is immune from their dangers. These diets may work for someone short term, but the weight lost is usually put back on when they go off of the diet, because they return to their old eating habits.
A well balanced diet is key for long term success. The American Dietetic Association has a web site with nutritional guidance for those interested in eating healthier. The address is www.mypyramid.gov. It is a good place to start when deciding on a healthier way to eat.
A well balanced diet will teach you healthier habits that you can live with over the long term.
