If you have prediabetes, you might be one step away from type-2 diabetes…
What is prediabetes?
It is a health condition where the blood sugar levels are constantly higher than normal, but not high enough to be classified as type-2 diabetes. If not treated, this can happen in less than 5 years.
Prediabetes severely increases your risk of developing further health problems like heart disease and stroke.
Luckily with the right lifestyle changes, dietary choices, weight loss, and a good physical exercise routine you can get your blood sugar levels back to normal.
So how do I manage prediabetes..?
Follow a good exercise routine
You should be getting at least 30 minutes of exercise, 3 times a week. This does not mean you have to get an expensive gym membership; you can even just start off by walking.
A good power-walk around the neighbourhood or along the beach is a great way to get your blood pumping and calories burning. Start slowly and work yourself up to where you are doing more intense exercise.
You should also try to incorporate some weight-training into your workout routine. If you don’t want to go to the gym or even buy dumbbells to use at home, you can fill up some bottles to use as weights.
You can use two 500ml bottles as weights when walking to exercise your arms at the same time or go up to bigger 5L bottles to use as a heavier weight.
Follow a good diet
The first place to start is to get to a healthy weight. You should treat prediabetes in the same way that you would treat type-2 diabetes.
Following a diet that is low in carbohydrates and sugar is key. You want to maintain a balance of protein, fruits, and vegetables.
Break up your meals into 6 or 7 smaller, balanced meals that you have every few hours so that you don’t get hungry between meals. This can help to avoid overeating at meal times and prevent cravings from happening.
There are 6 foods that are a MUST in your diet against prediabetes…
When putting together a meal plan, that includes a variety of the following foods:
- Grains: Whole-grain pasta, cereals, and brown rice.
- Vegetables: Greens, carrots, green beans, tomatoes, and other colourful vegetables.
- Fruit: Whole pieces of fresh fruit
- Dairy: Low-fat or fat-free milk, yoghurt or cheese.
- Protein: Lean meat, chicken, fish, lentils and dried beans.
- Fat: Polyunsaturated or monounsaturated oils, such as olive oil or canola oil, walnuts and avocado.
Try the Manna Diet as an easy way to include all of the above foods in your diet.
Tip: To get better blood sugar control, lose weight and to help reverse prediabetes, replace one or two meals per day with the new Manna Shake.
Making lifestyle changes that you can live with for the long-term is your best bet for accomplishing nutrition goals that last.

“My wife and I have been using the Manna now for just over a year. We both lost more than 20 kgs using it as a meal replacement twice a day. The change in formulation last year did not enhance the taste. As a matter of fact, I was looking to go elsewhere. However, this new formulation tastes great and we will continue to use it. Would be nice if your retail outlets got the new formulation as I don’t drink the old one. But I must say, ordering from the factory has been great with speedy delivery.” – Danie de Waal
