Are We Eating Ourselves to Extinction?

Press release from: MetamorFitness, Inc

Diabetes is increasing in high numbers in both western and developing countries even while billions are spent on weight loss. This is due to misinformation.

December 06, 2006 - Diabetes is ravaging western society and even increasing dramatically in developing countries. With increased incidences of type 2 diabetes in young people, Americans may decrease average lifespan for the first time in history.

According to New York City fitness trainer, Katrina McKenna, this trend can be reversed but only if people get the right information. Even though Americans spend billions on weight loss most of them are going about it the wrong way, especially people with diabetes.

When people try to lose weight and fail, they often give up, believing that they just can't lose weight. But the problem, according to Katrina, is misinformation. Many fitness resources promote exercise programs that may actually increase fat and many organizations promote low fat eating which is inevitably a high carbohydrate diet. Carbohydrates limit weight loss and lead to diabetic complications.

Diabetes is the seventh leading cause of death (fifth leading cause of death by disease); it affects over 20 million Americans! Another 40 million Americans have pre-diabetes. Many of these people do not even know it.

According to the American Diabetes Association diabetes is the leading cause of adult onset blindness, the cause of 60% of non-traumatic lower limb amputation, and a major cause of heart disease and stroke, which are responsible for approximately 65% of deaths among people with diabetes.

Unfortunately, while most resources for people with diabetes recommend exercise, the information is limited, inefficient or wrong. There are also great exercise books but they lack the specific details that people with diabetes need to know in order to exercise safely. Katrina wrote the book, "Yes! You CAN Be Fit, Feel Fantastic and Look Better Naked Even With Type 2 Diabetes" to fill the gap to help people with diabetes learn how to exercise and lose weight effectively and safely.

Katrina McKenna is a fitness professional serving New York City and specializing in helping people with type 2 diabetes lose weight and live healthier lives.
