Love this article. This is exactly the formula to gain muscle if you have diabetes. Even though I don’t take insulin and meds anymore because I keep it under control, it was a learning process for me and what worked for me. The more reliable information you have, the better you are at managing your diabetes. From the time I was diagnosed over 5 years ago, I have lost 85 lbs. and lift weights 3 times a week with cardio 2 to 3 times a week. Weight lifting / resistance training and solid, reliable information like these priceless articles on Fit with Diabetes / Fit Blog saved my life. I am 53 years old and competing in my first Triathlon in 3 weeks… and I am so excited. Ms. Oerum’s information is priceless, as well as the experts she utilizes to educate people with diabetes. And ladies, if you want a wonderful body, follow these wonderful weight training / resistance exercises Ms. Oerum has on this website. It will be your fountain of youth. I love to wear tank tops and shorts and show all my muscles. I’m no Arnold but I always have people come up to me and tell me how good my arms, legs, back, etc. look. …..The hardest part is just starting, that initial beginning. And I stuck with it…..take all this priceless information and use it…..I started seeing better A1C in my first 6 months…. and I couldn’t believe how I looked. Once you see your body change and energy levels change, you are hooked, your life is better, everything is better. Just start ….
Hello Jay, I’ve been working out for quite a while now (3 months to be exact), I had a decently big belly when I started, which I managed to drastically reduce till now, by exercising and dieting (Around 13 Kilos). Interestingly enough all the “good” techniques and theories I heard, and used are well stated and explained in your Website, thus why I am just about to buy your book. But before I do that I have one simple question: I am an employee, who works a 9 hour shift daily, so my concern is that will I be able to stick to your programs/diets, without having to go through an extensive hassle or time consuming process to prepare meals, and having to throw away large chunks of money on nutriments/supplements? I have access to a gym, so that is not an issue, but I want to know to what extent can the diets your book provide be simplified? I am mostly interested in the Lose fat/Gain muscle routines since that is where I am at the moment, but I don’t want to form eating habits that are too time and money consuming? Thank you!
Plasma and muscle glutamine levels are decreased post workout and it can take hours before they are restored (Rowbottom, 1996). A study examining the effect of free-form glutamine and glutamine peptide ingestion on muscle glycogen resynthesis found that plasma glutamine was decreased by 20% post workout with the ingestion of glucose only (control), showed no change with ingestion of whey protein or wheat protein hydrolysate plus glucose drinks, and a 200% increase with ingestion of free-form glutamine plus glucose drink (VanHall, 2000). Free-form glutamine supplementation was needed to elevate plasma glutamine levels post workout.
