Ways of preventing yourself of getting pre-diabetic or diabetic
Avoid eating unnecessarily
Eat a large portion of vegetable 30 minutes before your main meal.

Switch to low carbohydrate diet (healthy keto diet is very corrective and can be used to help with diabetes)
Do intermittent fasting
Eat a lot of vegetables
Foods that you can eat
foods high in omega 3 like sardines
olive oil – extra virgin olive oil (used for marinating and dressing. cook with it on low heat)
coconut oil – good for cooking
Peanut oil – use in small amounts
sunflower oil – use in small amounts
palm oil (sustainable)

NO PROCESSED MEAT (LIKE LUNCHEONMEAT, SAUSAGES ETC AVOID THESE AS THEY ARE LOADED WITH SALT AND PRESERVATIVES).
NO CARBOHYDRATES, SUGARS AND PROCESSED FOODS – these can spike your blood sugar and cause you to crash
and make you feel hungry frequently.
Also if you are diabetic or prediabetic, they can make the condition worse.
All vegetables accepted apart from starchy vegetables like potatoes, cassava, yam etc.
Small amounts of berries like blueberries, blackberries, strawberries etc. (wild berries preferably)
Fruits are high in fructose which is only processed by your liver, so large amounts of fruits can cause your liver to
store the fructose as fat easily.
no fruit juices – they have no nutrients. just a lot of sugar because they are pasteurized.
Avoid eating junk food regularly if you’re diabetic, junk food has a direct link to bad cholesterol and weight gain which can make diabetes worse.
Add weight lifting and compound exercises if you can.
