How important is exercise in this dietary regime and how best should exercise be adjoined to this diet to maximize its effect?

Exercise while insulin is low is much more effective in cutting fat than exercise after a meal when insulin is higher. And, besides its effect on body weight, exercise training can have a direct insulin sensitizing effect on the muscles employed in the exercise which can translate into a further reduction in daily insulin secretion. Exercise will have good effects on the arteries, on the bones and on a healthy brain.

Aerobic exercise of moderate intensity and prolonged duration, if performed in fasting metabolism, can burn off considerable stored fat. Regular exercise training of this sort, particularly if accompanied by low-fat food choices, has considerable potential for promoting leanness. This is the principle behind a “mini-fast with exercise” strategy that in pilot clinical trials has achieved marked reductions in body fat. This type of exercise is an ideal complement to CC dieting, since much of the day, on CC diets, is spent in the fasting metabolism needed for this strategy to succeed. And bear in mind that, independent of its potentially favorable impact on body weight, exercise training can have direct insulin sensitizing effects on the muscles employed in the exercise, which can translate into a further reduction in daily insulin secretion. Exercise training also has direct protective effects on the arteries, helps keep your bones strong, and may help promote healthy brain aging boosting the brain’s tolerance for various stressors. This website will give you valuable tips on how you can employ exercise training as a potent tool for achieving leanness and reinforcing the benefits of a low insulin lifestyle.
