Easiest Diet Hack – Simple Anti-Diabetes Trick That Works in 24 Hours (3 Simple Steps)!

By on January 9, 2017
This one simple trick could lower your risk of diabetes–within 24 hours.

The research, which appears in the journal PLoS One, examined the effects of low-carb and high-carb meals in women who did not have diabetes. After measuring their blood glucose, they found that eating just three low-carb meals lowered post-meal insulin resistance, reducing their risk of type 2 diabetes.

While researchers admit the sample size was small, they’re still encouraged by the findings.

“What is remarkable about our findings is that they show that a simple dietary modification of reducing the carbohydrate content of the meals can, within a day, protect against development of insulin resistance and block the path toward development of prediabetes,” says Katarina Borer, lead researcher of the study. “And even more surprising and amazing is that exercise before the meals made the subjects more carbohydrate intolerant–that is, it increased evening blood sugar levels.”

The Research

In the study, researchers divided 32 post-menopausal women into four groups, given either low-carb or high-carb meals to consume. Some groups were also told to engage in moderate exercise before eating.

Then, after all three meals were consumed, researchers tested their blood glucose to see if it improved or worsened their insulin resistance.

While exercise did not improve insulin resistance, what did was consuming low-carb meals. Borer explains:

“We showed an acute, one-day reduction in insulin resistance after the third low-carbohydrate meal eaten in the evening, so one could argue that this is transient and insignificant. The low-carb group showed a reduction in insulin resistance after the third meal in the evening, but the high-carb group sustained high post-meal insulin.”

Because exercise did not affect their insulin resistance, researchers suspect the body’s response to the carbohydrates played a bigger role in this response. This means if you want to lower your risk of diabetes–and manage your blood glucose better–what you eat matters more.

This does not mean you should avoid exercise, however, researchers note. Though exercise won’t help in the short haul, its effects on other health risks associated with diabetes, namely obesity, can keep your risk low.

For an easy 24-hour fix though, your best bet is to keep your carbohydrate intake low–and healthy.

“Because exercise did not lower insulin resistance, it suggests that the insulin reaction the subjects experienced after the evening meal was driven by an intestinal response to the carbohydrate, and not by exercise,” says Borer.

Now that’s a simple trick anyone can do. Seriously!
