Wright Now Fitness: How Exercise and Diet Can Reduce Your Risk of Developing Type 2 Diabetes

(PRWEB) December 17, 2014

Almost 30 million children and adults in the US have diabetes. 79 million adults in the US over the age of 20 have prediabetes. Half of adults aged 65 or older have prediabetes. Prediabetes is a condition in which blood glucose levels are higher than normal, but not high enough to be diagnosed as full-blown diabetes.

    According to the American Diabetes Association (ADA, 2012), an individual’s chances of having prediabetes go up if he or she:

    Is age 45 or older
    Is African American, Hispanic/Latino, American Indian, Asian American or Pacific Islander
    Has a parent, brother or sister with diabetes
    Is overweight
    Is physically inactive
    Has high blood pressure or takes medicine for high blood pressure
    Has low high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol and/or high triglycerides
    Is a woman who had diabetes during pregnancy
    Has been diagnosed with polycystic ovary syndrome

The good news is that there are many lifestyle changes that a person with prediabetes can make to prevent the development of type 2 diabetes. Some of these important lifestyle changes include losing weight, eating a healthy diet, and physical activity.

Being overweight can lead to many health problems in addition to diabetes including metabolic syndrome, heart disease, and hypertension. It only takes an initial weight loss of 5-10% of a person’s bodyweight to see noticeable improvements in glucose metabolism, cholesterol levels, and hypertension! A combination of diet and exercise, in addition to being more active in daily life (walking to work, walking at lunch, walking instead of driving, taking the stairs, etc.) is the ideal way to achieve weight loss.

Eating a healthy diet made up of low fat and low calorie nutrition packed foods can make a great difference in weight loss and diabetes prevention. A low fat, low calorie diet should include fruits and vegetables, low fat dairy, lean meat, poultry, fish, and beans, and whole grains. A Mediterranean diet may help prevent type 2 diabetes and improve glucose metabolism.

Both cardiovascular exercise and resistance training can greatly help to prevent diabetes and enhance blood glucose control. Furthermore, regular exercise can help to decrease hypertension, triglycerides, total cholesterol, and LDL cholesterol, increase HDL cholesterol, and decrease body fat. Exercising 30 minutes per day, 5 days per week can make a big difference in helping to prevent type 2 diabetes.

Prediabetes increases the risk of type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and stroke. 9 out of 10 of those with prediabetes do not know they have it. Unless a person makes health and lifestyle changes including increased physical activity and weight loss, 15-30% of those with prediabetes will develop type 2 diabetes within 5 years!

Now is the time to make a change! Regular exercise, eating a nutritious diet, and maintaining a healthy weight is important for not only those people with prediabetes, but it is important for everyone.

Workout Body Type

There are infinite times in which we begin a diet and commit to physical activity to lose those extra pounds that bother us so much. We listen to our friends and acquaintances that tell us what which strategy will give us the best results to lose weight quickly and effectively. Worse is the fact that we have all equal bodies, we have the same needs and, somewhat surprisingly, not all react the same way to a particular physical activity or exercise. 
There is a concept that was promoted in the forties by William H. Sheldon, which classifies three body types according to how they store fat and develop muscles, called somatic types. While this stance is still receiving some criticism, it is highly possible that knowing the areas where our bodies store more fat, we can define correctly the routine of exercises best suited to us.

Ectomorph body: it belongs to people of average texture and low fat body stores. Your muscles are thin, you have long arms and legs and a short torso.   The hands and feet are long and thin also. For these characteristics, the main goal is to build muscle and therefore gain more weight in addition to eating a greater amount of food you’re used to. Those who possess this special body type should avoid extensive cardiovascular exercise, one that is used to burn fat. Usually these people are those who say they eat too much and never manage to gain weight.

Mesomorphic body: it is what people might call strong presence since they have a solid body structure and muscle. With a well-developed torso, chest and arms, these are people who quite contrary to the ectomorph, have a knack for developing muscles, therefore should combine exercises with weights, to continue emphasizing the torso. In order to lose weight, a very attractive and positive addition to any moderate activity is to contribute to the stretching of your muscles with pilates and yoga.

Endomorph body: here we find a body in which it is to more easily develop fat around the hips and back. Usually they have little muscle and the face is fairly short rounded collar. Before starting any exercise or sports, it would be extremely beneficial for people with these characteristics to have plated monitoring and long-term maintenance of a healthy diet rich in protein and minerals as they are people who tend to store fat easily. In regards to exercise, they should opt for aerobics or outdoor sports like running, walking, cycling.

In this way, they would be burning mostly fat but also important is a balanced diet which will provide very positive effects if started at the time of the proposed change. It is generally truth that we can shared some different characteristics of the three body types, what good, is knowing the behavior of our body structure in order to choose the exercises that will benefit us the most.
