Diabetes occurs in adults who consume too much sugar. This occurs because the body become desensitized to the large quantities of sugars and fats consumers, which results in your body not recognizing when you have too much insulin. Over time this gets worse and causes diabetes, meaning that you will rely on medication and injections to control your insulin levels.
The Paleo diet, however, avoids this problem entirely. Type 2 diabetes can be completely avoided owing to the fact that the diet cannot ‘overload’ you with too many sugars by its very nature. If you are only consuming plant-based foods, meat and vegetables, you can rest assured that your body’s insulin levels and sensitivity remain at optimum levels.
