The diabetic client
Diabetic individuals, know that it is one million times more challenging exercising with diabetes, particularly if they take insulin. Popping pills in the middle of the day, or mornings, when walking, doing yoga, or meeting with your trainer is difficult, but it can be done. After training many individuals with this condition, I found that night time is the best time to exercise, physical activity will not thwart your body from results by any means. But night time is my choice for clients who suffer from type 2 diabetes. A poignant fact, is that most people with this condition doesn’t have energy or desire to work out. But when they start at least 3 days a week at night times, they see a change in their sugars!
Three reasons why should exercise at night if you have type 2 diabetes
- Insulin spikes at night time. Your body’s temperature has dropped and no longer relies on fats and proteins as a main source of energy. You need to burn something, and that something is called ‘sugars. Insulin allows your cells to take in blood sugars for energy or storage, depending of what is needed at a time. Nights are perfect time to get those sugars burned out!.
- Your appetite increases at night time, Your body suffers a shift in hormones. Those that regulate your moods and sugars. When exercised at night, you are balancing hormones, such as; serotonin, dopamine, insulin, and others that can increase appetite. If feel depressed, with low energy at night, is a sign that your serotonin/dopamine levels have kicked in. Exercise at night can help you control serotonin shifts, and lower your dopamine levels to feel better, as well as to controlling your appetite by regulating them.
- Leptin resistance. Leptin is called a satiety hormone. It is basically the hormonal that signals when your body is full and you should stop eating. Obese people become leptin resistant, then, their bodies can’t determine when they are fulled. Thus, an excess of appetite, is the result. One cause of high leptin levels is elevated insulin. Your leptin levels can be controlled by exercising at night time so you can rest better after your work out. Studies show that insufficient sleep lead to high insulin and leptin levels.
THREE DIFFERENT WORK OUTS TO USE FOR DIABETES:
1- Swimming will always be at the top of my list. It is a great aerobic work out that utilizes A MAJOR AMOUNT OF GLYCOGEN (GLUCOSE) for energy purposes. You can deplete your sugars easily when swimming for 30 minutes. The buoyancy, minimizes the stress on the joints and feet, which is a major issue in some individuals with type 2 diabetes.
2-Weight training. It promotes muscle mass by using insulin more effectively. The American diabetes association states: the ability of your muscles to store glucose increases with your strength, making your body better able to regulate its blood sugar levels. Splitting routines in segments such as: biceps, and triceps, one day, back and shoulders, chest and legs, on day two, etc. It’s not optimal when exercising for diabetes. You should be working out your entire body on the day you doing your weight training routine. Contract every muscle nerve by using all muscles in one work out, let your body use your glycogen as a main source of energy by doing back to back exercises or what is called circuit training routines.
3-Cardiovascular activity. Study after study has shown that cardiovascular exercise can be especially good for diabetes. This activity can help you burn glucose in the body and decrease resistance to insulin, two effects that are good for diabetes control!. Walking, jogging, elliptical training, biking or hiking are good activities, 20 or 30 minutes of these activities is suggested, depends on your level of endurance and stamina. As always check with your Doctor before.
Trying these activities, one per day, for a total of 3 days will increased your fitness, decrease body fat, augment muscle mass, and most importantly reduce insulin resistance. For a thorough evaluation, and to learn more about our programs for Type 1 and 2 diabetes, fill out forms below.
