The Fast Food Trap and Type Two Diabetes
The best way of dealing with type two diabetes is through general lifestyle changes generally centred on diet and exercise. There are all sorts of things which diabetic can do to keep their quality of life nice and high and even though many of these may initially take quite a bit of getting used to, once they’ve been doing them a while they’ll be able to live pretty normal lives. Sadly, there’s no cure and if a diabetic lets his/her condition get out of control then they’ll find some unpleasant side effects of their condition which can eventually lead to death.
Fast Food may seem like a bit of a trap for diabetics and it’s true that things like the traditional fast food breakfast will skyrocket blood-sugar levels that you can’t take advantage. There are all sorts which fast food restaurants are obligated to put on the menu which are actually good for you (at least not as bad for you…) and as such you can use the fact that they’re everywhere and fairly affordable to get a quick snack when you’re out and about.
Don’t get into the habit of popping into these places if you can help it, the smell alone may spur you into buying a meal and this could be dangerous. It’s a temptation too far for most people and I for one know I’d struggled to sit in a fast food restaurant and not eat something deliciously bad for me.
Don’t be afraid to order from them if you think you have the willpower but don’t be fooled by any sparkly ads, a burger is never going to be that good for you as a diabetic meal. You’re not going to be able to eat a big mac no matter how much you want to be able to!
