You may not feel like exercising because you are tired, and moving around takes a lot of effort. But you'll feel better when your diabetes is in good control, and you can help make this happen by following your diet and exercising. Exercise decreases your appetite and helps your own insulin work better. Exercise also burns up food calories and calories stored in body as fat. By using more calories than you eat, you'll lose weight, and when you lose weight, you'll be able to move with less effort.
The number of calories burned during exercise depends on your size and on the type, duration, and intensity of your exercise. Exercise frequently. Bowling once a week is not enough. For best results, exercise 5 times a week for at least 30 minutes each time.
