The Best Exercise to Stop Diabetes
Exercise is your #1 way to avoid becoming diabetic. Below we’ll talk about why we think exercise should be part of your lifestyle and how Maximized Living doctors can help you find the right plan for you.
Diabetes is one of the most rapidly growing diseases in the United States. The latest statistics from the American Diabetes Association show that 25.8 million people in the United States have diabetes, and 79 million people have pre-diabetes—a condition in which the person will develop diabetes if a drastic lifestyle change does not occur.[1. American Diabetes Association- Data from the 2011 National Diabetes Fact Sheet (Jan 26, 2011)] This means that one out of every three Americans is either diabetic or on their way to becoming diabetic!
Diabetes is known to increase your risk of stroke, heart disease, and high blood pressure. Diabetes is the leading cause of blindness in ages 20-74 and kidney failure. Research shows that 60-70% of people with diabetes have mild to severe forms of nervous system damage. It is estimated that diabetes costs the United States $218 billion dollars a year.[2. American Diabetes Association- Data from the 2011 National Diabetes Fact Sheet (Jan 26, 2011)]
The great news is that this deadly disease can be reversed with a committed lifestyle program like the Five Essentials of Maximized Living. The 4th Essential, Maximizing Oxygen and Lean Muscle is the exercise essential and has a dramatic impact on this illness.
The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism published an article this week that demonstrates the importance of building lean muscle mass in the prevention of diabetes mellitus. The study showed that people who had a 10% increase in skeletal muscle index had an 11% in insulin resistance and 12% decrease in pre-diabetes.[3. Preethi Srikanthan and Arun S. Karlamangla. The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism. July 21, 2011.] So what conclusion should you draw? You should choose an exercise philosophy that maxes out your chances of building lean muscle in the most efficient way possible.
MaxT3, Maximized Living’s exercise program, works with your hormones to burn fat for the 24-48 hours after you finish your exercise. It also causes your body to release growth hormone and testosterone to max-out the building of lean muscle in your body. Both of these aspects of Max T3 give you a huge leg up in your quest to look good, stay well, get well, and in particular – prevent diabetes. For more information visit www.maxt3.com
Exercise is an important piece for preventing or reversing diabetes. However, there are still four other critical Essentials you must live in order to be giving good health it’s best chance. Diet is obviously very important for diabetes, and the Maximized Living Advanced Nutrition plan is designed to help the body specifically deal with a condition like that. If you are toxic or being exposed to toxins every day and you haven’t paid attention to detox, you’ll likely have trouble burning fat even with the best of diet and exercise.
The spine and nervous system, Essential #2, is perhaps the most overlooked part of the right lifestyle to prevent or recover from diabetes. It’s a condition that greatly impacts the nervous system and studies have shown that the science is that all of the organs involved are controlled and directed by nerves. These studies reveal that there is a marked impact relative to nerve integrity (Maximized Nerve Supply) and the body’s ability to properly process sugars and release insulin.
