Legumes Prevent and Reverse Diabetes

Legumes (Beans, lentils, chickpeas, and split peas) are powerful foods that help prevent and reverse diabetes. Alternatively, meat creates health problems that increase your risk of developing diabetes.

What occurs in diabetes?

In diabetes, elevated blood sugar occurs because either your pancreas fails to make enough insulin (type 1 diabetes) or the cells in your body have difficulty using insulin (type 2 diabetes). Type 2 diabetes is also known as insulin resistance.

Diabetes is serious because high blood sugar damages blood vessels, which can lead to blindness, heart disease, stroke, and kidney failure. Diabetics also develop nerve damage, numbness, and pain. Poor blood flow in the legs leads to non-healing injuries of the feet and legs . Inadequate blood flow and tissue death (gangrene) in the limbs leads to amputations.

Meat is a major contributor to diabetes

The animal fat in meat creates insulin resistance. Therefore, a plant-based diet effectively lowers your risk of developing type 2 diabetes.

Legumes prevent and reverse diabetes

Legumes are known for their remarkable ability to fight diabetes. People who eat legumes tend to weigh less and have much less belly fat. In this fashion, legumes can prevent or reverse insulin resistance.

Eat more legumes to slim your waist and protect yourself from diabetes!
