Increasing your fiber content, reducing your net carbs and including high-quality fats in your diet are three simple and effective ways of reducing your risk of diabetes. 

It’s important to realize that type 2 diabetes is not the result of insufficient insulin production. It’s actually the result of too much insulin being produced on a chronic basis, primarily from eating a high-carbohydrate, low-fat diet.

This overwhelms and “deafens” your insulin receptors, hence the term “insulin resistance.” It’s the chronically elevated insulin levels that make your body “resistant” to understanding the signals sent by the insulin. This also occurs with leptin, and most overweight or obese individuals have some degree of insulin and leptin resistance.

One of the best predictors of type 2 diabetes, in turn, is being obese or overweight. Aside from the issues of insulin and leptin resistance, obesity alters the makeup of microbes in and on your body.

There are many lifestyle changes you can make to reverse diabetes.
