To Get More From Exercising, Do This First

By: Dr. J. Murray Hockings

A recent study from the University of Missouri found that eating prior to resistance training is far more effective at reducing blood glucose levels than doing it at any other time.

According to Jill Kanaley, PhD, of the department of nutrition and exercise physiology and the University of Missouri, “This study shows that it is not just the intensity or duration of exercising that is important, but also the timing of when it occurs.”

The researchers studied 13 obese adults with Type 2 Diabetes to determine if the time they exercised had any effect on their glucose levels.

Each participant went through 3 trials. The participants performed resistance exercises 45 minutes after their meal, didn’t perform any exercises at all, or performed resistance exercises before a meal.

Researchers found that when participants performed resistance exercises after a meal, their glucose levels decreased by 30% compared to those who didn’t do any resistance exercises at all.

Additionally, the participant’s glucose levels decreased 18% compared to those who did resistance exercise before they ate.

The takeaway here is that the timing of your resistance training does matter.

Always talk with your Help Your Diabetes doctor before beginning an exercise program.

Then, when you get the go ahead, remember to eat first!

“Thankfully I caught my situation just in time and I will stick to this way of eating for the rest of my life.”


Marianne Fasolo – Orlando, FL:

“Thankfully I caught my situation just in time and I will stick to this way of eating for the rest of my life. I’ve been from doctor to doctor one pill after another but never feeling any better only sicker! I’ve literally wasted months of my life staying in bed feeling miserable and in constant pain. In such a short period of time I have more energy and can keep a smile on my face rather than a painful look and everyone who knows me, family and friends alike, all have commented on how much better I look like I am feeling.

I’m encouraging EVERYONE I know to do this program and change their lives for the better whether they are diabetic, pre diabetic or not. And yes, I will stick with this for the rest of my life because nothing tastes as good as feeling healthy.

Very loyally yours,” – Marianne Fasolo – Orlando, FL

Reversing Your Diabetes Is Good For Your Heart

A recent study found that medications designed to help control your blood sugar levels, may increase your chance of heart failure.

The American College of Cardiology looked at clinical trials for more than 90,000 people and found that the weight gained as a side effect of diabetes medications had a correlating increase in the risk of heart failure.

Every kilogram (about 2.2 lbs.) of weight gained, increased the risk of heart failure by 7%.

The researchers found that some diabetes drugs were more likely to increase the risk of heart failure than others, but the overall trend was an increase in heart failure for those patients taking medications to control their blood sugar levels.

According to Dr. Barry Rubin, Medical Director, Peter Munk Cardiac Centre, University Health Network (UHN), this research could well change the way people with both diabetes and a high risk of heart disease are treated in the future.

This study is just one of many reasons why it’s important to stay on your Help Your Diabetes program.

Drugs are not a long-term fix, they only cover up symptoms and often create more problems than they solve!

If you have any questions or concerns, don’t hesitate to reach out to your doctor.

A Little Change Can Go A Long Way

During all my years of practice, I’ve noticed a tendency for people to view fitness routines with an “all or nothing” mentality.

Too many people think they must be perfect, not only in the execution of specific exercises, but also in terms of sticking with an exercise routine.

Of course, you do want to perform exercises properly so you don’t get hurt, and you do want to be consistent so you see results.

However, be careful that your quest for perfection doesn’t turn out to be an excuse to not even begin!

If you don’t know how to properly lift weights, there are many places you can go for help – your local gym or videos online.

And if you miss some workouts, don’t give up, just start working out again as soon as possible.

The truth is you don’t have to be perfect to achieve your goals.

This lesson can be especially important for those people who have a lot of weight to lose. The whole process can seem overwhelming and even impossible. If you add the need for perfection to the mix, you are just setting yourself up for failure.

Be encouraged that small changes can make a big difference over time.

You might be interested to learn that recent research has found that something as simple as breaking up the amount of time you sit each day can actually improve your health.

The study collected data on 519 people with Type 2 Diabetes from another, larger, study done from 2006-2008.

The participants spent about 65% of their day sitting. And almost half of that time was spent with blocks of 30 minutes or more of sitting.

The researchers found that just changing these 30 minute blocks from sedentary to light activity decreased both waist circumference and weight.

Adding a more moderate activity increased the weight loss even more.

According to Dr. Eddie Phillips, founder and director of the Joslin Diabetes Center’s Institute of Lifestyle Medicine in Boston, Massachusetts, “I think the message that…breaking up your sitting time has demonstrable benefits is actually pretty compelling”.

So, the takeaway is this – when it comes to your health, a little can go a long way.

Just move more during your day and you can see some improvement.

Is Eating Right The Most Important Component?

You notice that when diet and exercise are spoken of, the word “diet” always comes first?

The reason may be that what you eat is the most important component for reversing your diabetes as well as overall good health and fitness, which includes taking the proper nutritional supplements, which are part of your HYD program.

Of course, you need regular exercise. But, it begins and ends with the quality of the food and supplements you eat.

According to recent research published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine, too many carbs and excess sugars are the biggest cause of the obesity epidemic.
The research showed that while getting plenty of exercise is important, it isn’t enough to overcome a poor diet.

According to researchers, “In the past 30 years, as obesity has skyrocketed, there has been little change in the physical activity levels in the Western population. This places the blame for our expanding waistlines directly on the type and amount of calories consumed.”

Another study, focusing solely on the United States, found that the number of women who claimed they got virtually no physical activity went from 19% in 1994 to an astounding 52% in 2010!

Men saw increases too, from 11% in 1994 up to 44% in 2010.

The British researchers have estimated that as many as 40% of people who are within a normal weight range, but don’t eat properly, still have abnormalities that are usually associated with obesity.

That means that even though they aren’t overweight, they have some of the same metabolic issues as an obese person has!

According to the researchers, “Our calorie laden diets now generate more ill health than physical inactivity, alcohol, and smoking combined.”

So, as you go through your Help Your Diabetes program, just remember that the way you eat and the nutritional supplements you take are the biggest components!
