Tom Hanks admits he has slacked on his health over the years, which led to the development of type 2 diabetes in 2013.

Type 2 diabetes is a chronic and lifelong disease in which the pancreas doesn’t produce enough insulin or the body cannot properly use the insulin that is made. As a result, sugar builds up in the blood instead of being used as an energy source.

Although Hanks could have prevented type 2 diabetes with early health changes, some people will still get the disease if genetically predisposed. That being said, you can prevent symptoms and even reverse the condition with the right diet, exercise, and treatment. Diabetes symptoms include weight loss, irritability, fatigue, excessive appetite, strong thirst, blurry vision, and frequent urination.

Weight loss is key in prevention and treatment as type 2 diabetes is linked to obesity and excess weight. Other root causes of diabetes include chronic stress, chemical toxicity, artificial sweeteners, fungal overgrowth, certain medications like statins and antipsychotic drugs, and nutritional deficiencies. Insufficient sleep can also put you at risk of type 2 diabetes.

Tom Hanks’ Diabetic Diet

A low-glycemic diet is the best way to slowly manage blood sugar levels and control diabetes complications and insulin resistance.

Low-glycemic foods will also help you lose weight, improve cholesterol levels, and prevent heart disease and certain cancers. Diabetics should try to eat three meals at regular times of the day.

Breakfast should never be skipped, as this will lead to blood sugar fluctuations in the morning. Snacks should be kept small, and include nuts, seeds, vegetables, fruit, and protein drinks. Many diabetics notice better blood sugar control when including small portions of protein at each meal.

What about Tom Hanks’ workout plan? For Cast Away, Tom Hanks had a two-hour daily cardio workout for six days a week.

Diabetics like Hanks should aim for about 30 minutes of physical activity each day. This, along with eliminating about 500 calories a day from one’s diet, can result in one pound lost each week.

Exercise helps Hanks and other diabetics maintain optimal blood sugar levels. As a result, it is a good idea for people with diabetes to walk after meals.
