According to Rick Gallop, author of a new cookbook it is very important to lose weight and control blood sugar level to fight with Type 2 diabetes, which is increasing at a very fast pace in Canada and North America.
Gallop has written eight guides beginning with The G. I. Diet up to his new book The G. I Diabetes Clinic, since 2002. The book talks about the nutritional necessities of those battling Type 2 diabetes and pre-diabetes. G. I. measures the pace at which your body digests food and converts it to glucose, which is used for energy and storing fats.
Individuals must avoid foods that have a high G. I. because they are assimilated too quickly by the body. Gallop has now come up with a new 13-week online e-clinic made especially for volunteer with Type 2 diabetics and pre-diabetics. "Most of the participants spend 30 or 40 years becoming diabetics, but with this program we had a substantial lowering of blood sugar levels in a relatively short space of time," said Gallop.
Gallop also added that he believes the diabetes epidemic has a very simple equation. According to him, this one has the most direct lifestyle connection. 90% of Type 2 diabetics are suffering because of being overweight and eating the wrong foods. He explains that so-called diet breakfast cereals and crackers are highly processed and, therefore, have a high G. I. rating, so one with such disease must avoid them.
