Manage Booking Qantas Type 2 Diabetes – Controlling Your Appetite Could Be The Key To Controlling Your Blood Sugar

The relationship between body weight and appetite is apparent to anyone interested in either maintaining a healthy weight or looking to lose weight. Being able to control your appetite may be the most crucial component in managing your body weight. It is no surprise those who are overweight are almost always the ones with poor appetite control. Not controlling your appetite is the easiest way to overeat, even if only slightly. Gaining an average of half a pound of fat in a month is negligible. In a year it would add up to 6 pounds – which is still slow enough not to be noticed. Assuming this rate of weight gain is maintained, however, the amount would be 30 pounds in five years, which is impossible to go unnoticed.

Today, many adults are overweight because of a poor diet, along with a lack of appetite control. To make matters worse, hyperglycemia is now an epidemic across many populations. One of the worst complications of being overweight is it increases the risk of developing Type 2 diabetes. Type 2 diabetes on its own is the cause of different difficulties which lead to several serious health issues and even a shortened lifespan.To help mitigate the development of Type 2 diabetes, it is essential to keep your blood sugar close to a normal range.The risk of your blood sugar rising due to neglect is just too high. If you already have received a diagnosis of Type 2 diabetes, it becomes even more imperative to make changes in your lifestyle to halt its continuing progress.If you are looking for a way to improve your situation, it would be beneficial to your health to focus on controlling your appetite. Your appetite is not only key to managing your body weight, but also your blood sugar. Like many things, managing your appetite is a matter of habit. The more you get used to resisting your hunger pangs, the easier it gets. Just because you feel a craving to eat, does not mean you should. If you can ignore your craving, it probably means you were not hungry, to begin with…

start eating two or three meals a day, and eliminate any form of snack in between and this will help to limit constant fluctuations in your blood sugar throughout the day.

drink plenty of water or tea, and you will sometimes find you just need to hydrate yourself. Mild, chronic dehydration causes many people to eat when they should be taking in fluid instead.

Lastly, make it a habit not to eat three to four hours before bed as this will help to stabilize your blood sugar before rest.

Fear This My Fellow Athlete

Competition is good, just as fear is good – if you will use it to your advantage rather than letting it use you. Fear can frazzle us to make mistakes, become uncertain, and anxious, but fear used to our advantage can propel us to greatness. It’s a double-edged sword. Since fear is internal, you own it, it’s yours to use as you will, if you ignore it, it might hurt you, if you use it, it can help you, give you the edge, especially in competition. How might I know this?

Well, I supposed any seasoned competitor in the human endeavor or athlete understands exactly what I am saying, but in case you need more examples to help you better understand this concept, by all means keep reading.

Recently, I read an interesting article online and watched a great video sponsored by Expert Sports Performance, the video was titled: “How Talented Athletes Deal with Fear,” by Loren Fogelman, a well-known sports psychologist.

In my view I believe that Fear is a wonderful thing, a huge driver of the human psyche, but Loren Fogelman reminds me of the truth that: “it motivates some and stops others dead in their tracks,” which is absolutely a fact.

Still, I believe that if FEAR stops someone from achieving or causes them to choke under pressure, then I would submit to you that:

1.) They don’t understand what fear is; and,
2.) They are not using FEAR as an adrenal shot for peak performance

Well, I say; too bad for them, if they are competing against me or my team. Fear can be a weakness if you let it, or high-octane when you need it, YOU decide which. “It’s all in your head” I always say. Anyway, that’s the way I see it. A great book to read is: “Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway!” published by in the 80s as a motivational type book.

As a competitive runner, I used to imagine footsteps behind me and ready to pass. Interestingly enough, I was a pretty good athlete so that didn’t happen much, but when it actually did happen it’s a sound you never forget. This imagination during competitive races propelled me to stay on pace or increase my speed opening up a large gap between me and the other runners. Sometimes when I am out training even today, I will listen to my feet hit the trail and pick up the sounds of the echo and amplify them in my brain to simulate those ever-feared footsteps, thus, propelling me to run faster and faster.
