RPN #016: Conquering ‘Diabesity’: Step-by-Step Guide to a Healthier You

This week, I delve into a health challenge that affects an astonishing 1.7 billion people worldwide.

It’s what Dr. Mark Hyman, a renowned physician and best-selling author, calls ‘diabesity.’

What’s ‘diabesity,’ you ask?

It’s the intersection of diabetes and obesity, and it’s more common than you might think.

But don’t worry – I’m not here just to share gloomy statistics.

I’m here to guide you towards better health.

In Dr. Hyman’s acclaimed book, “The Blood Sugar Solution.” he argues that diabesity is a result of not just poor diet and lack of exercise, but also of toxic food environments, stress, and a lack of community.

But how do you avoid this killer?

Here’s a simply guide to help you.

Step 1: Boost Your Nutrition

Swap out processed foods, sugar, and flour with whole foods, fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, and healthy fats.

Step 2: Regulate Your Hormones

Regular exercise and a balanced diet are your friends. They help keep your hormones (and blood sugar levels) steady.

Step 3: Reduce Inflammation

Cut out foods that cause inflammation and opt for anti-inflammatory alternatives. Think leafy greens, fatty fish, berries, and turmeric. Remember, food is medicine!

Step 4: Improve Your Digestion

Your gut health matters. Probiotic-rich foods like yogurt, sauerkraut, and kimchi are fantastic for keeping your microbiome happy. And a happy gut is a healthy gut!

Step 5: Maximise Detoxification

The key here is to reduce your body’s toxic load. Plenty of water, a diet rich in fibre, and steering clear of processed foods can help.

Step 6: Enhance Energy Metabolism Boost your body’s natural energy production with regular exercise and a balanced diet.

Step 7: Soothe Your Mind

Lastly, don’t forget about your mental health. Mindfulness, meditation, and self-care should be your go-to tools for stress management. Have you tried cold showers yet? Don’t be a wimp!

Did you notice a pattern?

Good nutrition and exercise are the keys to a long, healthy, happy life.

We live in a time where eating healthy whole foods and exercising is seen as strange.

And sitting around shovelling processed food into our faces is normal.

As a result, we’re fatter an more unhealthy than ever.

I’m on a personal crusade to change that.

When you prioritise your health, everyone around you benefits.

Remember, health is a journey, not a destination. Each step you take is a step towards a healthier, happier you.

Together, we will improve the health of the world.
