„Eating as medicine“. An Italian study shows that valuable ingredients such as carotenoid, polyphenols and vitamin C are not necessarily lost when heated or cooked. Vegetables should be treated as gently as possible, processed fresh and only cooked „al dente“ or firm to the bite. Eating vegetables and fruits are good as we all know. I agree we have a kind of satiety sensor in our stomach. If it is empty, a hunger hormone called ghrelin is released, triggering the „foraging“ impulse in the brain. Only when the stomach is filled to a certain extent does the impulse decrease again. If you mainly eat foods with a high energy density, there is a risk of consuming more calories than are consumed with all known negative consequences. In my case because of fatty liver and type 2 diabetes, consumption of more vegetables and fruits on the other hand has a crowding out effect on high calorie dishes and in this way indirectly protects against obesity and better for me.
👩🍳Riding a bike is fun, safe and good for me as a diabetic. It concerns the wheel driving as an ideal progressive movement means in everyday life. Herewith my daughter and my dog from home to the bike route in Prater, Vienna, the city Hiking Path 9. Which keeps beside the contribution to environmental protection above all also fit and healthy, makes fun and still represents ideal leisure activities for us and the perfect weather on this day. Thanks for dropping by here.
Another hiking day for the three of us, my niece and daughter with my doggy Mary and her mom Riyana my daughter’s dog.
👩🍳I’m a type 2 diabetic hiking is also recommended, as it lowers the risk of cardiovascular diseases and increases physical and mental well-being. However, diabetes patients should keep an eye on their blood sugar levels when hiking to avoid fluctuations in blood sugar. Sport is important for diabetes patients. Moderate but regular physical activity improves the performance of the heart, the oxygen supply and lowers the blood sugar level. Endurance sports are particularly suitable for people with diabetes mellitus. However, they should not strive for records, but pay attention to their energy reserves. Hiking is a popular sport, in Austria and Germany around 40 million people are active hikers. Diabetics can also practice hiking, as can walking. 👩🍳Thank you so much for dropping by and please like, share and subscribe for more Videos and recipes around the Globe and Eating and Hiking as Medicine on my YOUTUBE CHANNEL.——-Dolly here
👩🍳Recreation area Wienerwald. Great hikes are possible. Take the opportunity on days when not everyone comes up with the idea of going to the zoo, then you have the opportunity to go for a walk without being disturbed by the crowds. That’s what we did just to unwind from the city with COVID-19. Almost two months lockdown. Hiking and any other sort of physical activity is a great way to unwind from the stresses. In order to prevent blood sugar fluctuations when hiking or physical activities, diabetes patients should protect themselves by taking regular measurements. Hiking is particularly popular in splendid weather, although hiking is also very suitable for people with diabetes. However, diabetes patients must take care that they prevent severe fluctuations in blood sugar. Because exercise and physical exertion can both lower and increase blood sugar.
