Remember that song. “I like to move it, move it”
Well, my friend, that’s what you need to start doing.
Grab your shoes, hula hoop, bike and start moving.
Or, if you’re anything like me¸ grab your hairbrush-turned-microphone and start singing and dancing around in your living room until you break a sweat. Go on and rock out!
Anything that gets you up and off the coach. Go for it!!!
The goal is to get your body moving.  No need for a gym membership, or to sign up for the latest fitness doodad, just start walking.
Grab some comfortable shoes, a bottle of water and start with one foot in front of the other.

Research shows that participating in regular physical activity improves blood glucose control and can prevent or delay type 2 diabetes, along with positively affecting lipids, blood pressure, cardiovascular events, mortality, and quality of life.

Not only does exercise have positive effects on our mood, energy levels and weight, it’s also helps balance our blood sugar by helping the body to use move sugar from the blood stream into the muscles without insulin.
Exercise has also been shown to improve your body’s sensitivity to insulin. This means that your pancreas doesn’t need to produce as much insulin to manage your blood sugar levels.

Studies also show, that losing as little as  5-10% of your total body weight makes a big difference with prediabetes.
Free workshops on Prediabetes Wor
Every week I meet people that have been diagnosed with Prediabetes and don’t know where to start, what to do or where to go for support.
Sometimes their doctor has put them on metformin and sometimes they’ve just been instructed to “eat healthier & exercise”
Eating healthier is subjective.  Does that mean drinking juice instead of soda and just eating one less donut?
I hope that you’ve enjoyed reading.”Diagnosed with Prediabetes, Now what?”
