MD SAYS PLENTY OF BODY EXERCISE NOT GOOD FOR DIABETICS BUT WORK THE BRAIN

The 7-minute exercise plan for diabetes prevention

Exercise is overrated. I’m always reading more proof that says you don’t need to run a marathon to receive the benefits of a little exercise. Like this British study that claims you can control or prevent diabetes with as little as seven minutes of exercise… per week.

The study’s leader, University of Edinburgh biologist James Timmons, says that you can get the same benefits from minimal amounts of exercise as you can from workouts that last for hours. “This is such a brief amount of exercise you can do it without breaking a sweat,” Timmons said.

In the study, out-of-shape men in their 20s were asked to ride an exercise bike a few times each day – in 30 second bursts of pedaling – two days a week. After just two weeks, the all of the men were 23 % more effective at processing the insulin.

I’ve warned you many times about the potential dangers of over-rigorous exercise, so this minimalist approach appeals to me – and it should to you, too! Like I always say, skip the gym membership and just go for a brisk walk.

Always providing your brain with vigorous exercise,

William Campbell Douglass II, M.D.
