FITNESS is just 30-seconds away, according to recent reports.
Doctors working with diabetic patients have found that exercising in 30-second spurts, for as little as six minutes at a time, can greatly improve the bodies ability to regulate blood sugar.

And even for those without diabetes, this kind of activity could help boost the metabolism – fighting flab fast.

I have heard that you can split up your daily activity and still get results, but 30 seconds seems a bit small. But I do have to say, any activity is better than none. So if you can only run for 30 seconds at a time, that is great and go for it.
I know for me, exercise is KEY to getting my levels down. It helps a lot. Now I am also exercising in the evening too, and the jury is still out on that one, but I will let you all know.

I have to agree with you exercise is a key element to getting our numbers under control, I usually exercise at least 2 hrs a day, once in the morning, walking and later riding stationary bike, morning yoga, and strength training. jackie

While it's interesting, I would take anything written in The Daily Star with a pinch of salt. Think National Enquirer with a picture of topless woman on page 3!

i believe you, i was just pulling kds leg! there are some good scientific write ups in important magazines that ain't nothing but a crock of crap! so it pays to do your own police work. and sometimes the truth is stranger than fiction!

This is very interesting. Sounds like a good way to get back into an excercise routine for those of us who have slipped.
