The Type 2 Diabetes Revolution with Registered Dietician Diana Licalzi and Exercise Physiologist Jose Tejero.
Founders of The Type 2 Diabetes Revolution, Registered Dietician Diana Licalzi and Exercise Physiologist Jose Tejero are on a mission to share with the world how to reverse the root cause of type 2 diabetes.
If you or someone you love has pre-diabetes or type 2 diabetes, Diana and Jose’s approach can help you achieve non-diabetic blood sugar within weeks. The simple lifestyle changes outlined in their new book, The Type 2 Diabetes Revolution focus on the reversal of insulin resistance—the root cause of high blood sugar.
In the US more than 1/3 of the population has pre or type 2 diabetes making it the 8th leading cause of death and the leading cause of kidney failure, lower limb amputations and adult blindness.
Whenever you live, it’s likely a sad fact that YOU know someone impacted by this preventable lifestyle disease.
As such, I trust this will be an impactful and actionable conversation. Likely a perfect episode to share.
In this conversation we cover:
- Diana and Jose’s personal journey/s to helping others take control of their health.
- To the individual listening who might just have been diagnosed as either pre-diabetic or with type 2 diabetes, what would Diana and Joselike them to know?
- What are the primary risk factors for developing Type 2 Diabetes?
- The Lifestyle changes we can make to reverse insulin resistance permanently.
- Therole of nutrition in managing Type 2 Diabetes.
- Why is fibre important for blood sugar control.
- How important is exercise in the management of Type 2 Diabetes.
- What types of exercise are most beneficial.
- Misconceptions about gaining control of your blood sugar.
- How stress impacts diabetes health.
- The problems with diets like Keto and Carnivore.
- The book, The Type 2 Diabetes Revolution.
- Stocking your pantry and knowing which foods to always have on hand.
- How can family members and friends best support a loved one with Type 2 Diabetes?
If this is a conversation someone you love needs to hear, please forward it to them. One of the things I’m most struck by when having these conversations about the potential for a plant-based lifestyle to prevent and reverse disease is, there is no downside.
You are not putting a band-aide on one health problem while simultaneously increasing your risk factors for another.
The approach is beneficial to your body as a whole… while also, you know I’m going there – hugely beneficial to the environment and the animals too.
