Exercise lowers blood sugar. Exercise helps to move the sugar from your blood into the muscles so it can be used for energy.
This exercise routine works all of your muscles, but it focuses on the muscles that you use when you walk. As these lower leg muscles get stronger, you will be able to walk longer, faster, and further, letting you lower your blood sugar more. You can do this in your living room.

Rule #2: Exercise 10 minutes at every meal. Whenever you can, take 10 minutes either before or after, or both, to walk, cycle, dance, or whatever you can do to get your body moving.

A new research study from Queen's University in Kingston, Canada, tells us that all exercise, even the easy kind that lasts for only 30 minutes or so, can slim your middle, but it's the higher-intensity (brisk-walking type) that slims your middle and lowers your blood sugar.
According to the study's results, 30 minutes of low-intensity exercise, 60 minutes of low-intensit...Read Full Post »
