My article on the Coming Tsunami of Diabetes: how to dodge it has just been published.

Diabetes is an extremely serious problem in Singapore. 1 in 9 adults have it and by 2030, 1 in 5 adults are going to get it.

I personally love the first scientifically proven way: sleeping. Not sleeping enough increases our stress hormones (adrenalin and cortisol) which raises our sugar, and increases our hunger hormone so we want to eat more.

The second is what all doctors say: exercise. I had previously written about the power of exercise.

The third is to eat healthy. Avoid artificially processed starch such as white bread,  white rice and juices. Whole grains should be taken instead. Yes even Michelle Obama supported it.

Remember: sleep, move, eat.
