The green monster juice consists of: * 2 green apples * 1 cucumber * 6 leafs of kale * 1 lemon * 3 tsp. ginger * 4 stalks of celery I understand that this diet does not meet the entire recommended dietary intake. I am juicing this way for a detoxifying cleanse of my body and weight lost.
The exact cause of type 2 diabetes is unknown. However, there does appear to be a genetic factor which causes it to run in families. And, although a person can inherit a tendency to develop type 2 diabetes, it usually takes another factor, such as obesity, to bring on the disease. Type 2 diabetes may be prevented or delayed by reducing risk factors such as losing weight and increasing exercise. Some symptoms of type 2 diabetes may include frequent infections that are not easily healed, high levels of sugar in the blood when tested, high levels of sugar in the urine when tested, unusual thirst, frequent urination, extreme hunger but loss of weight, blurred vision, dry, itchy skin, tingling or loss of feeling in the hands or feet.
Cespedes (2015), “Lack of proper nutrients can limit the body's immunity, limit the body's ability to rebuild itself from daily punishment so that your muscles do not rebuild, it can because you to have bowel problems, infections, decreases your ability to think and remember things. So essentially without proper nutrients, vitamins, and the building blocks of life such as protein, your body can wither away.” After doing this little experiment I have learned many things about my diet and eating habits. I know a lot of my inputs were based on time restraints on what I had going on over the weekend. So one thing about having a healthy balanced diet isn’t just eating proper, but making time and changing your lifestyle to be able to eat proper.

1 Wow. After doing this 3-day nutrition assessment that is all I have to say. I actually thought I was a nutritious person, but I can see now that I really am not. In “My Plate” I fell really short in the vegetables, fruits, and dairy daily intake. I took in only 23% of the recommended vegetables, which actually really surprises me because, recently, I have been switching out my snack of choice for carrots, so I thought that would have been beneficial to me for this assignment; it doesn’t look like that was the case.
