Why dieting is a far better approach than intense exercise with some cases of diabetes type 2.

In some diabetes cases there is a very strong genetical basis for its incidence: e.g. this would definitely be the case if both your father and brother, as well as a cousin on your mother's side had diabetes. In cases like these the weight of a person is not particularly significant, though it would still have a bearing on the matter.

Such individuals would be advised to concentrate their remedial efforts more on effective dieting, rather than intense exercise. Sure exercising in conjunction with dieting is very good initially, for losing about the odd 8 or 9 kilograms. However to be able to go beyond that one needs to concentrate mainly on dieting. The reason for this is because there is a definite catch-22 with exercising as well ! For you end up reaching a point where the anabolic pressure of the exercising is far too strong for further weight reduction, and you reach a sort of impasse where it is sort of impossible to lose more weight. Furthermore, it is easy to observe that a great deal of exercise can be rather futile in many cases... this is because it tends to generate such an intense appetite that renders the whole thing pointless!

Hence in many cases, dieting is by far the only way to go. Of course here too there can be some stumbling blocks, especially if you've got a rather large body frame, and worse still, if you've accentuated the latter with some body-building, The worst enemy in this case is once again your genetics, and whether there is an inherent tendency for high body-weight in your family.

Finally the problem could become even more disastrous if you needed to consume some medications that can induce weight gain - e.g. tranquillizers and/or antidepressants - in which case it is extremely important to both stay active and continue with good dieting.
