- These diets are generally very restrictive, and, commonly, they do not perform proper maintenance afterwards, which causes them to suffer the dreaded rebound effect.
- Which means they can recover the lost weight and even add a few more pounds.
- According to the Center for Biomedical Research in Pathophysiology of Obesity and Nutrition (CIBERobn), this causes the body to develop the so-called insulin resistance, the “prelude” to diabetes 2.
- If you need to lose weight, do it on a diet. The Mediterranean follows safe guidelines.

- If your pans are grated, you can take this acid without realizing it.
- And what happens? This acid is known as a persistent organic compound (COP). There have been studies, such as one from the University of Granada, that have found a relationship between the levels of individual POPs in body fat and the risk of type 2 diabetes.
3. Don’t have Breakfast

- Suppose you stay soft in front of the TV. It’s not about doing an intense exercise, as this can make digestion difficult.
- Natural walking is enough. And in your everyday life, you must include the sport as usual, not only cardio (walking, running, swimming, cycling, inline skating) but also some weights.
- For example, according to Harvard Medical School (USA), including resistance exercises for your exercise routine can further reduce the risk of diabetes 2 in women.
5. Your mind does not rest on converting everything
