What is the best diet to follow in order to avoid diabete...
Diet containing more protein, less fats and adequate carbs should be ideal for weight loss. Basically one has to reduce present intake by at least 20 percent plus and increase the workout to burn accumulated calories at your height ideal body weight should be 67 kgs, and for indians upper limit of bmi is 23kg/m2, whereas your bmi is 36.6 kgs. It way beyond limits. Few of the reasons for developing t2 dm are overweight, inactivity, excess diet, apple shaped body etc. So for you it is better to join a good gym and work under a competent instructor.
