But on this article we will share with you a variant which is not so low in carbs, so you can better handle it. We invite you to check it out.

The point here is to include lots of vegetables in your diet, of course, those with a low sugar content. That’s why leafy green vegetables like lettuce, chard and spinach and excellent for you as a person who suffers of diabetes.

These will allow you to control your sugar levels in blood. The point here is to reduce your intake of sugar, because this will give your pancreas an easier time and therefore it will be easier for it to create insulin and make yourself feel great.

On this article we will check the veracity of this statement and let you know if vegetables can really add value to your health. Again, it’d be excellent if you read this article with an open mind. We will challenge several concepts and explain you in a radically-new way why vegetables are important in your diet and why you must eat them.

It’s Not All about Veggies:

A lot of people take it to the extreme. Vegetables are not superior to meat or vice versa, they are different types of food, and therefore they have different roles. That’s why we do not endorse a strict vegetarian diet or in defect a vegan one, because we firmly believe that these diets can do more harm than good.

So the first step here is to realize that veggies are just a component but not the whole formula. If you want to feel at your best, then remember this at all times.

Micronutrients:

In terms of macros, especially in the carbs section, most vegetables won’t have a significant impact. That’s why a lot of people include green vegetables in their keto diets, because they don’t have a significant impact due to their low content on carbs.

But vegetables are fully loaded with lots of macronutrients which will help you to feel a lot better. If you want to have more energy and have a perfect hormonal balance, then you should start eating vegetables more often, especially the leafy green ones.

The vitamins and micronutrients they contain are essential for your body to work at its top.

The Best Vegetables: Examples

There are certain veggies which are worthy of being referred as the best. On this section you will get to know some of them.

Spinach is a really good one. It’s rich in a wide myriad of things which include Zinc (pretty good for optimal hormonal levels), magnesium, calcium, vitamin A, E, C, etc. On top of that it’s very delicious, so you should try to eat it more often.

Chard is another precious veggie. It’s loaded with vitamin K, C, E. On top of that, it’s also rich in magnesium, potassium and manganese. It goes very well when cooked, never eat it raw because it’s hard to eat and more often than not impossible.

Kale is another wonderful choice. It contains Vitamin A, K, C, B6, manganese, calcium, copper, potassium and magnesium. That’s why we say it’s a wonderful choice, because it’s one of the most nutrient-dense vegetables in the world and without any doubts a magnificent choice.

How Fasting Can Improve Your Health

Fasting is a common practice in several religions. But is it any good for your health? On this article we will check the main benefits and advantages offered by this ancestral practice. You’ll see that it’s more than mystical practice. It’s something that can improve your life quite a lot. Just read this article with an open mind and we are pretty sure you will learn quite a lot.

The Basics:

It’s also important to know what fasting really is. It’s a fixed period of time where you don’t eat any kind of food. Just water, tea or coffee.

A lot of people argue that if you eat less than 50-100 calories then you are still fasting. It can be true, but the best thing you can do is to keep your calories intake at bay during your hours of fasting. Simply drink tea, water or coffee. Whatever you like the most.

Now this is how you can start your fasting. Simply limit yourself to drinking these beverages and that’s it. You don’t have to do anything more besides that.

And you should also know that there are different approaches to this practice. For example, you can opt for fasting 24 hours 1 day per week. Or you can try a more popular and effective approach, which consists of not eating anything for 16 hours and eating all of your foods in an 8-hour window.

This last approach is very effective. For example, if the past day you ate your last meal at 8pm, then you should not eat nothing till noon next day. As you can see it’s pretty easy to handle, as you will spend most of your fasting sleeping.

But how can this activity be healthy? Allow us to explain it in the following paragraphs.

The Benefits:

A great benefit, which can be quite attractive for people who suffer of diabetes, is that fasting regulates and controls insulin levels. Not having control over this can be fatal, but thanks to fasting you will regulate your insulin perfectly.

Another great benefit provided by fasting is that it encourages cellular repair. It’s fact that is backed-up by science and research. So if you want to feel better and look younger, then you should start fasting, because it will repair your cells and make them work at their very best.

Another wonderful thing about fasting is that it improves the level of human growth hormone (HGH). This is very good if you want to look younger, because this will have a direct effect in the appearance of your skin. And this is also wonderful for people who are trying to lose weight, as it helps to burn more fat and improve muscular growth.

So here you have it. These are the benefits of fasting and how you can start practicing it. It’s a great tool to improve your health. Just remember to have a good diet and you won’t experience any problem at all.
