Diabetes is a chronic condition that affects how your body regulates blood sugar levels. According to the International Diabetes Federation, as of 2021, approximately 537 million adults around the world are living with diabetes, and this number is expected to rise to 643 million by 2030.

We will also explore the role of nutrition in managing diabetes and how a plant-powered diet can help regulate blood sugar levels.

We will also cover lifestyle changes that can support diabetes management, such as regular exercise, stress management, and mindful eating. Throughout the course, we will share case studies and success stories of individuals who have successfully managed diabetes with a plant-powered diet.

By the end of this course, you will have a solid understanding of the benefits of a plant-powered diet in managing diabetes and how to incorporate this way of eating into your daily life.
