A plant-based diet has been shown to lower the risk for diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and kidney disease.*
Studies have long shown that vegetarians and vegans have a considerably lowered risk for Type 2 Diabetes – but recent studies indicate that simply reducing your meat intake and incorporating plant-based foods into your diet can substantially lower your A1C levels, and reduce the risk of further complications down the road. By understanding what’s in our food, we can understand the direct influence food has on our blood sugar levels. Healthier eating doesn’t revolve around dieting – it revolves creating a sustainable meal plan as well as understanding the role different food groups play in your overall health.
At ‘Ekahi Wellness, we’ll help you develop meal plans that are customized to your health care goals, as well as your lifestyle.
