Diet matters

If you think you can out-exercise a bad diet, think again. A new study of lifestyle interventions for adult-onset diabetes suggests that diet is far more important than exercise in mitigating this growing chronic health problem. The new study, published this past week in the Lancet, followed almost 600 patients diagnosed with Type-2 diabetes. It found that dietary changes produced the largest physiological improvements across the treatment regimens studied. While adding exercise did not improve diabetes treatment, the lead researcher emphasized that “individuals who exercise have reduced rates of cancer, reduced mortality, and other benefits from exercising, such as enhanced sense of well being…but dietary change should be the focus of your lifestyle intervention” when seeking diabetes control.
