It is sad that there are many medical problems that occur due to our bad habits. Excessive eating, smoking, alcohol and drug abuse, those all lead to certain conditions that are not easily dealt with once they emerge. This is why health prevention should be one of the major things people should care about. The only way that health prevention can be raised to a maximum level is through educating people and teaching them about the dangers that wait in bad habits. Seminars, studies, marketing, media, and those are all the tools that can help in teaching people how to save their health from constant attacks.
Those attacks sometimes succeed, unfortunately. When we are talking about excessive eating, it all goes down to very high level of glucose in blood stream. There are several ways in which people get affected by diabetes. For some, insulin receptors that are present on the surface of all cells simply stop functioning and insulin cannot connect with those cells, while glucose cannot leave blood stream and enter the cells. Problems with receptors might emerge because there is simply too much glucose in blood, or because of some other factor. Actually, the exact reason that makes those receptors stop working is still unknown. Also, diabetes might occur because there are some problems with the part of pancreas responsible for the creation of insulin. Another reason is in insulin itself, which for some reason does not function properly.
Whatever the factor that caused diabetes, people who have it have to deal with the fact that their lifestyles have to change, the major change involving applying some sort of low calorie diet. A diabetic diet plan to lose weight includes several forms that are different in number of calories allowed to be taken through food. The minimum amount is value between 1200 and 1600 calories, which is ideal for those with small bodies and with some physical activity. For those a bit bigger, the number of calories can be increased, from 1600 to 2000 calories. Really big people do not need to exercise if those numbers are used. The last plan includes the intake of 2000 to 2400 calories, which is a perfect value for big people who are physically very active.
It is obvious that even those people with serious conditions such as diabetes, should be having healthy meals and when we say healthy, we mean that a daily intake of calories must be about 50 percent from carbohydrates, 20 percent from proteins and 30 percent from fat.
