Natural Diabetes Management with Exercise

 

 

If you discovered a "secret weapon" that would literally cut your risk of developing diabetes in half, you would want it?

 

What if in addition it also helped you to lose weight, would you consider this something of a great find?

 

Now, what if I told you that this wonderful "discovery" that cuts your risk of Type II diabetes by 50 percent and helps you 

lose weight were absolutely free?  Would you still be interested in the possibility?

 

Well, grab your walking shoes and start lacing up!  The Diabetes Prevention Program performed a study in 2001 that showed simply walking 30 minutes a day for five days a week did all this!

 

In fact, the average participant in the program lost a stunning 15 pounds in a single year, just by walking.

 

This is great news, because according to Dr. Anrea Kriska, associate professor of epidemiology at Graduate School of Public Health, University of Pittsburgh, women who are sedentary are  more likely to develop diabetes than those females who exercise.

 

Her study too, performed in 2003 showed similar results when individuals began and kept with a walking program. If you believe you've waited too long to exercise, that you're beyond hope, think again.  Dr. Kriska said that these benefits ". . . hold up no matter the initial weight of the walker." 

 

And you can even be more effective at the natural approach to managing diabetes if you add exercise to your daily list of "musts." Exercise will naturally help you shed some of the excess body fat which is a part of the problems you're having with your blood sugar levels.

 

Body fat blocks your muscles from being able to actually use the glucose that is in your bloodstream. You'd be amazed that even a small reduction in fat produces a noticeable benefit in the utilization of the glucose.  And all of this leads to a natural reduction in your blood sugar levels.  Of course, the more fat you lose, the more efficiently and more normally your body will use that extra blood sugar.

 

The good news here is that the exercise need not be strenuous.  If you're not up to walking 30 minutes all at once, don't worry.  Recent research shows that you could break that 30 minutes into smaller increments and still receive the same benefits. 

 

The other great news that research has recently shown is that you don't need to be a speed walker to reap the health benefits of walking.  Even walking at a normal pace provides your body with enough movement to help improve your overall health!
