You can’t have escaped the news that Type 2 diabetes is on the rise, in line with overweight and obesity and a diet high in refined carbs.
Someone asked me the other day: what is the number one piece of advice you would give to a person who wanted to reverse their Type 2 diabetes?
To be a better sugar burner, do more exercise
Well firstly my advice does not replace that of anyone’s doctor or guarantee reversal but in general my absolute first approach would be to increase exercise.
By exercising we literally give blood sugar a role and somewhere to go.
So rather than it being turned away by the cells, as in Type 2, it’s put to use to fuel the muscles. You can liken it, very simplistically, to regularly filling your car up with fuel even though you’re not driving the car anywhere. The fuel would spill out and cause damage and fires all over the place! But if you gave the car fuel and then drove it lots the fuel would get used efficiently.
You are that car but you’re priceless whereas the car is disposable and renewable.
Since it can take up to 10 years for Type 2 to brew away in the background before showing up big time it’s a wise move for anyone to exercise as well as eat healthily.
If in doubt check with your doctor to ensure you are medically fit before starting an exercise regime. On the other hand walking never hurt anyone 😊
