Is EXERCISE Giving You Diabetes!? (Shocking!)

Dear Living Well Daily Reader,

Regular readers will know that I’m a runner. I’ve been running all my life because I love it.

So it should come as no surprise that I think that exercise is important to good health.

And the stack of research papers on my desk agrees: exercise is essential for a long, healthy life.

But the problem is, no one wants to talk about the dark side of exercise.

We all know about the risk of injuries and falls, but there’s something just as bad…

Researchers have discovered that this type of exercise could give you diabetes.

Mainstream medicine has it all wrong when it comes to exercise. They’ll tell you the old motto “no pain, no gain.”

But now researchers have discovered the deadly truth behind this attitude…

Extreme exercise could lead to diabetes.

In fact, a group of researchers from the Swedish School of Sport and Health Sciences found that exercising too hard causes dramatic metabolic changes, including insulin resistance and low glucose tolerance.

For the study, Swedish researchers put eleven healthy young people through strenuous exercise routines and looked at their blood sugar levels and mitochondrial function (the powerhouse of your cells.

They specifically had them try high-intensity interval training (HIIT). It’s a type of exercise where you complete short stints of exercise that pushes your body as hard as it can go, followed by a few minutes of rest. And then it’s back at it again, for 30 minutes or more.

When the group of eleven first started exercising, the study team saw their mitochondrial capacity increase.

But when the researchers pushed the amount of strenuous exercise up to 152 minutes of total time, their mitochondrial respiration (a measurement of mitochondria function) plummeted by 40 percent.

If you’ve ever worked too hard in the garden or helping someone move and felt tired for days, you know what this feels like.

But worse, the volunteer’s insulin resistance SKYROCKETED and their glucose tolerance dropped so much that it mimicked pre-diabetes.

The bottom line is what I’ve been saying for years… you don’t need to lift giant barbells or hop on a mountain bike to get the benefits of exercise.

The best exercising you can do is simply move around. Walking, golf, gardening, and housework are ALL good for you.

In addition, I suggest spending four hours a day standing or walking. Do that and you’ll be in great shape!

P.S. As you know, getting more active is just the first step in a healthy lifestyle. That’s why you should check out this miracle supplement that some doctors are calling “exercise in a bottle.” Find out more right here.
