A New Diabetes Exercise Regimen – Is It For You?

diabetes exercise

I’ve just finished watching this BBC TV program below which was done back in February 2012.

At the start, it says that with a total of 3 minutes of intense exercise per week, you can get health benefits and one of those health benefits is to improve your sensitivity to insulin.

What that means is, for diabetics, you may have less need for insulin and low sugar levels and for normal people you may just have the chance to prevent getting diabetes.

These seem like worthwhile things so i’d certainly suggest you watch this video below.

There are two extra things as you do so.

The first is that, as it points out, exercise is not a good method for losing weight.

So if you want to exercise, go into it with realistic expectations.

The second thing however is and i’ll include a link here to a better article about the Timmons regimen for this process, the actual whole exercise itself takes 21 minutes a week not just the 3 minutes of intense exercise that it mentioned in the start.

But still, 21 minutes for an entire week is pretty good and I think you might be interested in finding out what the results exactly are. Give it a go.

WARNING: As it says in the program itself, do not begin any any new exercise program without consulting your health practitioner first.

  1. Thank you for this post. It’s very helpful information even for a skinny person with pre-diabetes. Now I gotta get back on my treadmill.

  2. This is very interesting, a few of my friends suffer from diabetes so I will pass on the information.
