People often believe that once they are diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes, it's the end of it all. They have to use medicine to live a healthy life and may still suffer complications. The truth, though, is that there is a way to reverse it through low-calorie eating. Studies have proven that if you can knock off about 1/6 of your body weight in order to release some of the fat surrounding your organs, your body functions can return to normal.
This isn't to say that it will always work, but researchers believe it will for many people within 10 years of diagnosis. The researchers who completed one study had participants engage in low-calorie eating with no exercise at first, then they added it later in the program.
