Health matters – “Diabetes Remission Possible with Diet, Exercise “

It has taken decades, but medical professionals are finally starting to give diet and exercise for the prevention and reversal of type 2 diabetes some well-deserved attention.

“… the new study can give people with the disease hope that through lifestyle changes, they could end up getting off medication and likely lowering their risk of diabetes-related complications,” Reuters Health reports

Story at-a-glance

  • In a four-year-long study, overweight and obese diabetics placed on a calorie-restrictive diet along with nearly three hours of exercise per week fared much better than controls
  • After one year, 11.5 percent of the program participants no longer needed medication to keep their blood sugar levels below the diabetes threshold. Only two percent of the non-intervention group experienced any significant improvement in their condition
  • Obesity has now become a greater global health crisis than hunger. It is also the leading cause of disabilities around the world
  • According to a national study there’s been a modest decline in obesity rates among 2- to 4-year-olds from poor families.
  • While the cause for the drop is unclear, some of the potential contributors include a massive increase in breastfeeding over the past three decades, and reduced advertising of junk food to young children.   Dr Mercola  08/01/2013



The benefits of lifestyle and exercise cannot be emphasised enough or repeatedly printed enough times.

The awareness and a mindful approach to good health must NEVER be under estimated.

  • When you has good health, you often take it for granted.
  •  the body is very forgiving and the natural systems and immune systems compensate up to a point,
  • by the time you are “unwell” you are already on the wrong side of health.
Sometimes, it is not so easy to adapt to healthy living, especially if you are overweight and have difficulty maintaining a weight management programme.
There are those people, who can change their diet and lose weight with no apparent problem at all.
But they are not the vast majority.
So here’s where Neways has provided a helping hand to a sustainable weight management system.

Working together, we’re pioneering a mind and body approach to healthy sustainable fitness & weight consciousness.

Neways created the FitChoice Programme knowing that it is important to develop life-long healthy eating and exercise habits that will help you reset your habits and make long-term, sustainable lifestyle changes.

One key is identifying patterns in your life so you can decide where to make changes.

As part of your FitChoice programme, use the online journal to keep track of what you eat and the circumstances surrounding your eating.

Doing this will help you become more aware of your eating habits, so you can mindfully adjust these habits as needed to meet your goals.

For each day, make sure you record everything you eat and answer the questions about how you felt, who you ate with, and how aware you were of your hunger and fullness.

The journal also includes places for recording your physical activity and your FitChoice supplementation.

As you track your eating behaviour and make adjustments, you will see progress.

To access these tools, including the journal,  take the Find Your Path Self-Assessment

Make the Choice that Fits You !

A FitChoice testimonial shows that there is help for all with a manageable system which actually works !

My husband has Type 1 Diabetes and has been on the FitChoice programme since last October.

He replaces lunch with a shake and treats it as a ‘zero’ carbohydrate meal, therefore doesn’t have insulin for this meal. (He has lost 9+ kilos and 4″ off his waist alone).

As a result of the weight loss, his diabetes control has improved (lower HBa readings). DAFNE system (for Type 1 Diabetics) ties in perfectly well
