Choosing An Exercise Plan Diabetes


When people are just beginning an exercise program, they often have three questions:

What kinds of exercise should I do?

Your doctor will advise you what types of exercise you can do based on your medical history and a thorough medical exam. Consult with your doctor if you have any questions or concerns about your exercise plan.

How much should I exercise?

Many experts agree that you need 30 minutes of "moderate-intensity" physical activity each day to stay in good health. If you're out of shape or short on time, start slowly and add it up in 10-minute periods throughout your day.

How hard should I exercise?

Take the "Talk Test." While exercising, you should feel a little warm, break into a light sweat, and have increased breathing (but not gasping). If you can talk and carry on a conversation during this time then your activity level is just right.
