In brief: Carb Restriction

Type ii diabetes can be prevented by carbohydrate restriction and regular exercise.
These two measures alone have been shown to decrease progression to diabetes by 70-80%.

In brief: Weight control

The most effective way to prevent type 2 diabetes is by maintaining a healthy weight and consuming a diet low in simple sugars.
Regular exercise is important in maintaining a healthy weight. Reading food labels is helpful in trying to avoid high sugar foods. Even if not diabetic, a diabetic diet tends to be healthy. Early treatment of pre-diabetes may be helpful so check with your doctor.
