Lack of physical activity promotes insulin resistance. Individuals who are sedentary tend to lose insulin sensitivity even if they do not gain significant amounts of weight. Lack of exercise results in a loss of lean body mass and a reduction in the number and efficiency of insulin receptors in various cells throughout the body. Moderate exercise helps to stabilize the appetite, normalize blood sugar levels, and increase muscle mass, thus increasing your metabolic rate. If you want to get off the blood sugar roller coaster and be free from an appetite in overdrive, you need to make a commitment to regular exercise.
