Hey guys, class is in session once again. For awhile now, I’ve been wanting to talk about the complex issue of weight and diabetes. Weight and diabetes go hand in hand, yet they are not necessarily the same. Todays video is long, but I felt it was crucial to try and explain were I am coming from as a diabetic. As I’ve said once before, the topic “diabetes” is loaded; and just like religion or politics, it appears that sometimes it’s almost impossible for people to be on the same page, be it because of, perceptions, personal theories, beliefs, various levels of understandings, or simply not having the same access to particular information. Like it or not, where you get your diabetic information is just as important as reading itself.
To illustrate that weight is more than just “eating right”, fruits, veggies, and herbies, I’ve randomly used the nutrition information of a Subway sandwich (which by the way, subway has been advertised as having the best sandwiches for loosing weight, yet the particular sandwich i’ve chosen has 7 grams of saturated fat.. Hmmmmm
Anywayz, I want my viewers to understand that regardless of the struggle, we still have to try our best to continue taking care of ourselves, regardless if we don’t loose any weight. Physical activity is important.
