All these things lead to numerous diseases among which is type 2 diabetes. Our body was actually meant to thrive on foods that support a healthy metabolism and physical activity, not on sedentery lifestyle. Most commonly, type 2 diabetes is diagnosed when the patient has undergone significant weight gain.
