Diabetic or pre-diabetic? Almased can help you

If you’ve received a diagnosis of diabetes, or if your doctor has warned you that you could be pre-diabetic, no doubt you’re worried. What will it mean for the way you eat and the way you live your life? How will you look after your health in the future? Don’t worry – there’s a lot you can do to stay fit and healthy, and help is at hand.

Your doctor will explain your condition to you and prescribe the appropriate medication, but there’s a lot you can do for yourself to reduce the harmful effects of type 2 diabetes or pre-diabetes. Now’s the moment to take control of your diet, and make healthy eating a way of life rather than something you do when you want to shift a few pounds before your holiday or after Christmas.

The first thing you need to know is that both of these conditions are about blood sugar management – too much glucose in your blood damages your body in a range of ways. This means avoiding sugar and fast-acting carbohydrates such as bread, biscuits and cake. Foods that don’t affect your blood sugar control in a negative way are said to have a low glycaemic index.

If it sounds complicated, there’s an easy way to get your diet onto a healthy track. Almased meal replacement shakes can take the hard work out of following a low sugar, low carb diet.

Take control with Almased

Almased is a completely natural product made with premium ingredients – soya, yogurt and enzyme-rich honey. It was voted Germany’s ‘Most Trusted Weight Loss Brand 20201 and has been popular there for many years. Studies have shown that when Almased shakes are used in conjunction with a balanced diet, greater weight loss can be achieved than by regular low-calorie diets2.

Almased drink options

This is because Allmased contains a high concentration of protein, with low carbohydrates, resulting in a low glycaemic index. It’s low effects on blood sugar make it entirely suitable for people with type 2 diabetes or who are pre-diabetic. Consuming an Almased shake doesn’t result in a blood sugar spike, while the high protein levels contribute to weight loss while retaining muscle mass.

Using Almased in the long term is safe and beneficial to blood sugar levels and insulin requirements. Furthermore, there are no artificial sweeteners, flavours, preservatives or stimulants in the formula. It’s gluten free, non-GMO and suitable for vegetarians as well.

Shake it up with Almased

Almased can be used in a number of ways to aid weight loss and help with blood sugar control. The delicious shakes are made by mixing five tablespoons of Almased with 200ml of low-fat cow’s milk or nut/oat milk or 200-350ml of water, plus two teaspoons of an oil that’s rich in essential fatty acids – for example, flaxseed, rapeseed, walnut or olive oil. You’ll find lots of recipes on the Almased website showing you how to incorporate fruits, vegetables and even chocolate into your daily shakes to keep your diet more interesting.
