Nice article. Scary statistics. Fact is, diabetes is spreading at an incredible rate. I was reading another article the other day that said there will be an expected 49% increase in Type 2 children over the coming years. With the right knowledge and proper tips, all of this can be avoided. Our organization works with diabetics and those who are prediabetic or just want to learn more, teaching proper healthy eating habits and exercise tips. We push everyone to use the Glycemic Index over low carb diets and other "Instant diet" ideas out there. What happens is many people go on these quick fix diets, lose the weight and put it right back on. Using the Glycemic index will help with proper weight loss as well as sparking a healthy lifestyle. Fact is Type 2 diabetics account for nearly 90% of all diabetics, and Type 2 is preventable! Visit us at www.steps-to-success.org
