Is Walking ‘Real’ Exercise? (short video)

Introduction: Making Health a Habit picks up where A Dietitian’s Journey left off and provides general health information about lowering insulin resistance, keeping blood sugar at a healthy level, or maintaining (or building) muscle mass, or may simply be my opinion on different matters related to a low carb or ketogenic diet. Making Health a Habit are short videos (< 5 minutes in length) or short blogs on health-related topics and are quite different than Science Made Simple articles which are longer,  research-focused articles.

I often get asked if walking is “real” exercise, so this morning I decided to respond to that question in the 3rd entry in my new series titled “Making Health a Habit”, which can be found here.

In this short video I share some of the reasons I choose to walk and when, along with other options that may work better for you. I also talk about some of walking’s health benefits when it comes to those who are Type 2 Diabetic or in remission from it, and tie it into the first video in the series that was on sarcopenia.

If you’d like to know how I can help you to get started eating healthier or being more active, please let me know.
