Perhaps the 2 biggest reasons type 2 diabetics gain weight: high carbohydrate intake and high insulin levels.
When you eat more than you need in carbohydrates the excess glucose, which is what carbohydrates are broken down into, get stored as fat. The next problem, is type 2 diabetics are insulin resistant and their pancreas has to make more insulin just to lower their blood sugar levels. Over the years I have discussed this numerous times with doctors, but the one thing you will notice with people who take insulin or drugs that increase insulin secretion from the pancreas is that they gain weight. High insulin levels in a type 2 diabetic happen because the body is trying to overcompensate for high blood sugar levels and insulin resistance. People begin producing way too much insulin up to 10 years before becoming type 2 diabetic (as prediabetics) and continue to produce higher than normal levels for up to as many as 20 years or more after they are diagnosed.
Too much sodium increases your risk for high blood pressure, and high blood pressure is the leading cause of heart attack and stroke.

Ever wonder why certain foods or too much of a good thing can cause excessive bloating and the dreaded flabby belly syndrome! They are good over raw because they are easy in the digestive system while offering all the benefits.  Just remember to lightly steam so they are more on the raw side than cooked. Try to stay away from salt for a little while because it will retain water.  Finally, when you feel unbloated, try to have sea salt which is less processed.

When Mosley found that he was borderline diabetes and high cholesterol he decided to look the other way from his regular doctor and what he found is worth reading about. Endocrinologists also  measure insulin secretion in an attempt to learn how far a patient’s type 2 diabetes has progressed.
And over time this causes the beta cells of the pancreas, which secrete insulin, to burn out. On October 9, 2013, join him via webinar as he explains how chronic high blood sugar stimulates insulin response, eventually reducing insulin’s effectiveness and creating negative health effects in addition to better known diabetic and prediabetic factors. Hear how nutrition can play a very curative role. Foods that you eat several times a day can add up to a lot of sodium, even if each serving is not high in sodium.

Most of the sodium we eat comes from foods prepared in restaurants and processed foods (not from the salt shaker).
