The 60-Day Diabetes Take Charge Food Plan

Here's four simple steps to getting your blood sugar under control.

With approximately 29 million people in the United States with diabetes and 86 million people in danger of being diagnosed, the challenge to start living a healthier life has never been more important. Now, thanks to the 60-Day Diabetes Take Charge Food Plan, regulating blood sugar and making healthy eating choices is a whole lot easier. Follow the simple steps below to help lower your blood sugar numbers and lose the excess weight.

60-Day Diabetes Take Charge Food Plan

1. Build a Blood Sugar-Friendly Plate at Every Meal

Putting together a diabetic-friendly plate means focusing on healthy and filling foods. Be sure to include low-glycemic veggies, lean protein, one type of complex carb and one healthy fat.

2. Eat 3 High-Fiber Snacks a Day

In this case, high-fiber means there's at least 4 grams of fiber in a serving. This helps slow down carb digestion and allow for a more gradual rise in blood sugar.

3. Eat Small, Consistent Meals Every 3 Hours

Be sure to keep your system moving by eating a small, balanced meal every three hours. This helps balance your blood sugar and avoid those dangerous spikes.

4. Exercise

Walk at fast and slow intervals for 30 minutes at least three times a week.

When Dr. Oz found out in September 2019 that his mom, Suna, then 81, was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease, he was gutted. He wondered how he missed the signs and what he could do next. Like so many caregivers, he had to recognize that his mom was not going to get better. But he also knew that he wasn't alone: There is an Alzheimer's diagnosis every 65 seconds.

Dr. Oz immediately contacted his friends and colleagues and crafted a treatment plan with two of the country's top experts in the field: Richard S. Isaacson, MD, a neurologist at NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center and the founder of the Alzheimer's Prevention Clinic, and Dr. Rudy Tanzi, a professor of neurology at Harvard and the founder of the "Alzheimer's Genome Project," who co-discovered the first Alzheimer's gene.
