The type 2 diabetic condition is brought about by a diet that is too high in carbohydrates and a lack of nutrients, which results in the insulin the body naturally produces becoming less and less effective in keeping blood sugar levels under control and in a normal range.
While change in diet and proper nutritional supplementation have a dramatic effect in controlling blood sugar naturally without the need for drugs or insulin, exercise can greatly contribute to the overall control of the diabetic condition, as can be seen in the following excerpt:
“While many people may begin exercising out of a sense of responsibility – the way children eat vegetables they don’t like – the main reason they keep exercising is that it feels good.”
“Overall, people who exercise regularly are better equipped to carry on day-to-day activities as they age.”
“One of the great benefits is that many people find that when they exercise, they have less desire to overeat.”
“Even though your fat won’t ‘melt away,’ exercise, particularly if you’re a Type II diabetic, is still of value in a weight-reduction program because muscle building reduces insulin resistance.”
“As you increase your muscle mass, your insulin needs will be reduced – and having less insulin present in your bloodstream will reduce the amount of fat you pack away.”
“As a result, your own insulin production gradually becomes more effective at lowering blood sugar.”
