Nutrition: Eating Out - Healthfully
In a dozen studies that monitored tens of thousands of people for years, "being overweight increased the risk of developing diabetes in men and women more than tenfold." Unfortunately, anyone trying to avoid weight gain and diabetes will find little help from restaurant menus. Restaurants serve large portions of tasty calorie-rich foods. That's a recipe for flab...and for diabetes. (Diabetes Nutrition and Diabetic Meal Planning)

Bright Eye Basics

Chances are, no matter how strong a dieter's resolve, sooner or later a craving will rear its ugly head. But even the strongest urge for a forbidden food doesn't warrant abandoning your low-carb lifestyle. "You should diet as if your life depended on it," says Fred Pescatore, M.D., author of The Hamptons Diet. "If you make it as important as anything else in your life, then you can't fail." Read more as low-carb experts and successful dieters share their tips to fend off cravings and stay on the path to weight loss and better health. (Diabetic Diet and Low Carbohydrate Diet)

100-Calorie Snacks
Have you ever wanted a snack, but didn't want to blow your diet? Eating the wrong snacks is an easy way a lot of extra calories are added to your daily food intake.

We hope these examples begin to dispel current notions of "portion distortion." Try not to eat with your eyes, but with your head - a wonderful surprise awaits you. You'll be amazed at how so little (smaller portions and fewer calories) can go so far in raising your energy level. (Diabetes Diet and Diabetes Nutrition)

Coping With Nerve Pain - B Vitamin Relief
When you lack B vitamins, you may suffer pain in your hands or feet, signs of what's called peripheral neuropathy. The good news: B supplements can help your nerves calm down and stop screaming with pain. About 15 million Americans suffer from neuropathy, a nerve problem that can damage the nervous system and cause unrelenting aches and pains. In particular, people suffering from diabetes may suffer peripheral neuropathy when the sugar in their blood reaches and remains at dangerous levels. (Neuropathy and Diabetes Management)

Managing Hypoglycemia - Basic Guidelines (Part I)
Hypoglycemia can be the precursor to Type II diabetes and other insulin resistance related ailments. The good news is that treatment is easy  to understand, and you can manage it yourself.  Best of all, the treatment is without risk, whether or not you actually have hypoglycemia because the treatment is simply a change in diet.

Water Works
Do you drink enough water? If you don't, you're affecting almost every aspect of your health.  Experts rank water second only to oxygen as essential for life.  Water promotes good health in many ways, from reducing the risk of certain cancers to improving short-term memory and weight loss.  (Diet & Nutrition)

Water Is Key To Weight Loss And Good Health
Water is crucial to any fitness or weight-loss regimen. When you exercise, water helps your body convert excess fat to energy and helps your kidneys flush out waste products from the extra fat and calories you burn.  Water also keeps your body from retaining excess fluid. (Diet & Exercise)

Diabetic Recipes - Main Dish Fish
Fish makes a great main dish when you're carb counting, not only because it's high in protein and low in carbs, but also because it contains omega-3 fatty acids. Try these delicious recipes such as Grilled Salmon with Herb Crust, Grilled Tuna with Peanut Sauce and Grilled Swordfish with Tomato Chutney and make your meal planning even healthier. (Low Carbohydrate Diet and Diabetic Recipes)

Diabetes and Omega-3
The essential fatty acids also affect the ability of the body's cells to respond to insulin. In a 1993 study, Australian researchers learned that insulin resistance is related to what kinds of fatty acids make up the cell membranes. The more Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids there are in the cell membranes of adult diabetics, the more their tissues respond to insulin.  Learn more about how the essential fatty acids can help in managing diabetes. (Diabetes Nutrition and Diabetes Research)

Thief of Sight: Glaucoma
If you are at risk for developing glaucoma, take that risk seriously. Glaucoma is the second-most important cause of blindness in the United States (after diabetic retinopathy), and the single most important cause of blindness among African Americans. If glaucoma is detected early and treated properly, blindness can be prevented. There is no longer any reason for people to go blind from glaucoma! (Diabetes Education and Glaucoma)

Magnesium
One of the most versatile minerals, magnesium is involved in energy production, nerve function, muscle relaxation, and bone and tooth formation.  In conjunction with calcium and potassium, magnesium regulates heart rhythm and clots blood; it also aids in the production and use of insulin.

Soda-licious
Drinking one can of sugar-sweetened soda or fruit punch each day may be enough to double the risk of developing type 2 diabetes in middle age. Find out more about this eight-year Harvard study and how it relates to diabetes. (Diabetes Education and Diabetic Diet)
