Like "Yes it does and the reason why is that when you body is active you don't need insulin to get the glucose into your cells for energy. So if you are not exercising, the glucose has a harder time getting into your cells. As you exercise more, that glucose leaves your blood stream much easier and it gets used up in your muscles so you are also not converting it into fat. Exercise is the amazing link that so many of us forget about. We are just told to do it, but many of us don't understand why it is so important."
