Exercise has an important role to
play in diabetes treatment as in any weight management regimen.
So exercise……………. "You have nothing to lose but
If you have diabetes, regular exercise can increase the sensitivity
of the body to insulin by more than 30% and many of you will find
that this along with your diet is more than enough to control your
diabetes. Others may find that they have to take less of the tablets
or even insulin!
The Activity Log will also show you the amount of calories which you
will "spend" in carrying our your exercise and this will help you to
keep within the prescribed number of calories for the day.
Moreover, many people with diabetes need to optimise their weight.
How is this done?
First, go to the BMI and the WHR Counters and find out your body
weight status. Do you need to lose weight, gain some pounds or do
you want to maintain your present weight but still keep to your
In order to lose weight, you must understand that for a person to
lose one kilogram of weight the body must have a negative balance of
7700 calories ( 3500 calories to lose one pound of weight). In
simple terms, what this means is that if you want to lose one
Kilogram of weight, the body must "lose" 7700 calories in excess of
what it takes "in" in the form of food.
This can be done in two ways: either you eat less and therefore take
in less calories or you exercise more and lose that many more
calories. It would be better if one were to do both. that is, take
in less calories and lose some more than you are doing at the
The Calorie Counter will tell you about how you can reduce the
intake of food items and the calories "lost", whilst the Activity
Log will tell you the number of extra calories which you will "lose"
depending on the type and duration of the exercise you choose.
Now add up the total calories "lost" per day.
7700 divided by this figure will tell you in how many days you will
be able to lose one kilogram of weight. As an example, if the
calories "lost" each day is 350 calories, you will lose one kilogram
of weight in 20 days!
You should aim to lose about 1.5 to 2 kilograms each month till you
reach your optimal weight.
At the same time, you must remember that the figures given are
approximate and for a person weighing 70Kg. You may lose slightly
more or less depending on your weight. But this difference is
usually small and you should soon see the difference in your weight.
