Is ‘Exercise Snacking’ the New Way to Help Manage Blood Sugar?

For those trying to manage blood sugar, a healthy diet is key. However, while food choice is important, getting adequate physical activity is, too.

Many people fall short when it comes to the federal guidelines for physical activity, and this is especially true for people with type 2 diabetes. Research has shown that just 39 percent of people with type 2 diabetes engage in regular physical activity, compared to the 58 percent without diabetes who engage in regular physical activity. While taking up a new exercise routine may sound daunting, the truth is that those looking to improve their blood sugar control can reap some powerful benefits from adding a relatively small amount of physical activity into their routines.

“Exercise snacking” is similar to the idea of consuming small meals throughout the day, but involves breaking up exercise into small bouts throughout the day. This is helpful for those who have trouble getting the recommended amount of physical activity each day. 

The development of pre-diabetes and diabetes is both costly and can lead to other more serious health complications. The good news is that adopting a more healthful lifestyle can help manage your risk. Healthy diet choices and increased physical activity can help to delay or even prevent progression from pre-diabetes to diabetes. If something as simple as a few minutes of exercise spread throughout the day can help, it may be time for more people to give “exercise snacking” a try.
