The incidence of Type 2 diabetes has reached nearly epidemic levels in our Western society. Its occurrance continues to rise at an alarming rate along with its complications.  While Type 2 diabetes can have some genetic predisposition, it is strongly associated with obesity, sedentary lifestyle, and particularly diets rich in refined carbohydrates and saturated fats.  Invariably, these diets are calorically dense and nutrient deficient.  .  

The single most important factor relating to LONGEVITY is WEIGHT.  Simply put, caloric restriction prolongs life.  The more calories you eat, the more your body must process, and the more oxidative by-products it will generate in the process.  These oxidants 'age' the body by putting it under oxidative stress. Fewer calories = fewer free radicals and less age-related decline.

Our highly refined, nutrient deficient , high caloric diets often result in insulin resistance at the cellular level.  This is preventable in many cases with dietary and lifestyle changes, and optimization of nutritional status.
