If you want to reverse type II diabetes or prevent diabetes, I suggest you add the following foods into your diet.
High fiber foods help slow down glucose absorption. Aim for at least 30g of fiber per day from vegetables, avocados, berries, nuts, and seeds.
Foods high in chromium can improve GTF glucose tolerance factor in your body and naturally balance out blood glucose levels. Broccoli, raw cheese, green beans and grass-fed beef are all high in chromium, however broccoli has the highest amounts by far.
MCFA’s found in coconut and red palm oil can help balance blood sugar levels and be a preferred fuel source for your body rather than sugar.
Wild-caught fish contain omega-3 fats and reduce inflammation which can help counteract some of the negative effects of elevated blood glucose.
Foods with a low glycemic load tend to not spike blood sugar as much as high glycemic foods. Low glycemic foods include vegetables, nuts, seeds, avocados, coconut, organic meat, eggs, wild caught fish and raw pastured dairy.
Sprinkling herbs like cinnamon, turmeric, and parsley on your food may also help balance blood sugar levels.
