Foodie Beauty's bittersweet return
Foodie Beauty's views are now starting to come back, surprising everyone who really believed (myself included) that her channel was on the downturn. What was the new shocking video about? well....it's official, FoodieBeauty has been diagnosed with type two diabetes. An absolutely devastating and difficult to control disease. This is quite sad, although personally, I never quite liked her so I don't feel that much sympathy. Let me be clear I'm not a psychopath that is happy about the news, I do find it sad, but at the end of the day, she is living the consequences of her actions. Her audience, doctors, literally everyone has been telling her this was inevitable.
In honor of (???) Foodie beauty's return I wanted to talk a little bit about type 2 diabetes that might be interesting to the readers
Diet, exercise and fasting are all great ways to reduce blood sugar. The ultimate goal is to lose weight, however, exercise, which i don't see mentioned often, increases blood glucose uptake due to up regulation of glut4 receptors on myocytes. I say that because I often see people might want to ignore exercise because "you can't outrun a bad diet" and while this is true, exercise serves other purposes than simple calorie burning. For more info, I definitely recommend checking out exercised by daniel lieberman. it's one of my favorite books about exercise and I definitely think it can be encouraging to the average person.
People seem to be shocked she isn't taking medications and tbh I understand where she is coming from but also, I hope she doesn't put off taking medications for too long. That's because glucose isn't an inert molecule, especially floating around your bloodstream. It will damage tissues which is why type 2 diabetes leads to so many devastating consequences (amputations included).
i hope that she does get it together, I really do, I think diabetes is just such a horrible and devastating disease that even though I don't like her personally I do hope she overcomes it. However, to be honest I don't have a lot of hope for her getting better. I've been a huge purveyor of foodie beauty (I usually watch reaction channels, sorry Chantal, you're too boring by yourself), and I just know her behaviors.
I think at the end of the day, she isn't going to be willing to be "uncomfortable" to "suffer" for awhile. To be fair, I think this is a general personality trait among humans. People don't like to suffer, they don't like being uncomfortable and to be patient and do it for a long time, without having instant gratification? I think that's hard. When I started trying to do body recomposition, I didn't see results for months. But that's the nature of change.
If you guys want to learn more about diabetes I definitely recommend talking to a doctor, or reading some books. I'm a bird. SQUAWWWKWKWKWKW
