Price: $25 Free Shipping T he development of type 2 diabetes is closely linked to excess body weight and a sedentary lifestyle. While type 2 diabetes can run in families, genes do not entirely predict who will develop the disease. In fact, lifestyle may be a bigger contributor than family history. A 2001 study in the New England Journal of Medicine showed that women who followed a "low-risk lifestyle" (meaning they followed a healthy diet, maintained a body mass index of less than 25, did not smoke and exercised 30 minutes daily) were 90 percent less likely to be diagnosed with type 2 diabetes—regardless of family history. This study was confi rmed by a multi-year interventional study called The Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP). The DPP showed that people at high risk for diabetes (prediabetes) who were able to follow a low-fat, low-calorie diet and exercise 150 minutes per week were able to reduce the risk of progressing to full-blown type 2 diabetes by 58 percent. For people over age 60, this risk reduction was 71 percent. Later analyses of the DPP even showed some participants were able to reverse their blood sugars back into the normal range. Mindful eating can help you tune into your internal guidance system with regard to what and how much to eat.

Make a decision early in the day that you will eat mindful- ly during a meal. Decide what it will be, and when you will do it. Give yourself 20 minutes for a snack, and longer for a simple meal. yoga & spirit By Annie B. Kay, MS, RDN, RYT and Lisa B.
