Use mindful nutrition to fight metabolic syndrome and prediabetes without restrictive diets.
There is no doubt that a healthy diet and lifestyle are an important part of managing prediabetes and other conditions associated with metabolic syndrome. However, a healthy diet does not have to include multiple rules and restrictions in order to be effective. In fact, research has demonstrated that restrictive diets may promote short term weight loss but ultimately lead to overeating and weight gain. Mindful nutrition combats metabolic syndrome and prediabetes by focusing on overall food and beverage choices as a whole rather than demonizing specific items.
Mindful nutrition puts you in charge, so you can enjoy foods that you love.
Too many of us have been lead to believe that some foods are good while others are bad. We have felt the guilt and shame that come when we can’t stick to all those diet rules that require us to only eat the “good” foods for the rest of our lives. The truth is, food is an integral part of our lives, and we should allow ourselves to enjoy it. Unless you have been diagnosed with certain diseases, food allergies or intolerances, the foods you love can be part of your overall healthy lifestyle. When it comes to managing metabolic syndrome and prediabetes, mindfulness could be your key. Mindful eating can help you achieve a HEALTHY and ENJOYABLE diet by shifting the focus from restriction to balance, variety and moderation.
Learn how you can use mindful nutrition to help manage metabolic syndrome and prediabetes.
