Research and personal testimony have revealed a list of benefits. Just by including workouts every week, you can lose weight, lower cholesterol, build muscle, lower blood pressure and increase energy.
However, more recently, I’ve heard stories from people practicing the new 7 Minute Workout strategies claim that it has brought their blood sugar levels down. While this program also uses diet, exercise has played an important role.
A huge advantage of physical workouts in handling diabetes is that it supports the body’s insulin use.
Ordinarily, the pancreas releases insulin when the amount of sugar in the bloodstream grows. This occurs after eating, for example. The increase in insulin results in the absorption of excess sugar by the muscles and liver., which results inlower blood sugar.
When you workout, the body needs additional energy (glucose) for the exercising muscles. The glucose that is stored in the liver and muscles can be released for fuel.
But, enough from me, let’s hear it from the horse’s mouth.
Paul Douglas, a 7 minute student, explains the results he gets by working out only 7 minutes a day, 3 times a week and following the systems suggestions on diet.
– “Last night after work my sugar was 6.4. Today three hours after lunch it was 6.5 (Normal is between 4-6 here in Canada). A far cry from the 15.6 reading I had ten days ago. Proof that smart diet and exercise will allow you to control diabetes instead of diabetes controlling you. (Sorry, I don’t know how to convert it to US measurements.)”
Paul is a conscientious person, so his experience may not be yours.
However, combining exercise program, eating habits and other changes could be able to contain type 2 diabetes.
