As I told many times simple Apple diet is very effective to normalise the weight. The details are as follows The Apple diet is one of the best and easiest ways to help boost the weight loss efforts. It appears there are many versions of this diet. Here’s an easy to use version that will give you slow, steady weight loss. This is not an extreme diet like you may think. Rule #1: Eat 1-2 Apples before each meal, minimum of 3 times a day. Before breakfast, eat 2 Apples. Before lunch, eat 2 Apples. Before dinner, eat 1 Apple. So you eat 5 total Apples a day. Rule #2: Eat whatever you want for meals. This rule is simple… eat whatever you want, just as long as you eat 2 Apples before breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Obviously eating healthier than normal would help your weight loss efforts even more, but it’s not 100% necessary. You can replace 1 Apple with an Pomegranate before breakfast and lunch. you should notice a steady weight loss. It won’t be extremely fast however it will give very good results.

There are some natural treatments that are being explored for type 2 diabetes. Ginseng – Although there are several different types of ginseng, most of the promising studies on ginseng and diabetes have used North American ginseng (Panax quinquefolius). Those studies have shown that North American ginseng may improve blood sugar control and glycosylated hemogobin levels. Chromium- Chromium is an essential trace mineral that plays an important role in carbohydrate and fat metabolism and helps body cells properly respond to insulin. In fact, studies have found low levels of chromium in people with diabetes. There are many promising studies suggesting chromium supplementation may be effective, but they are far from conclusive. a. Fenugreek seeds 20 are very useful in diabetes. Soak about 90 -100 seeds in 250 grams of water and leave it overnight. Mash them in the morning and sieve in a cloth and drink mixture regularly. Use for at least 3 months to heal diabetes. b. Bitter gourd juice effectively reduces blood sugar levels in obese persons c. Prepare a mixture by adding equal amounts of turmeric powder and dried gooseberry powder or drink equal amounts of gooseberry juice and fresh turmeric juice on an empty stomach regularly. d. Regular juice of Aloe Vera or Amla helps in diabetes cure. e. Leaves of mango tree also fight diabetes. Boil 3-4 fresh leaves of mango tree in the morning and drink. f. Fruit, leaves, seeds and juice of jamun (Syszygium cumini) are also useful. g. One more good natural remedy for diabetes is Cinnamon which contains a chemical that helps to use blood sugar naturally. 2 gm with warm milk at empty stomach helps. h. Regular intake of two tender leaves each of neem and bilva in the morning reduces blood sugar. i. Soaked almonds when taken in the morning with an empty stomach are also beneficial.
