Default Importance of exercise

Two studies are mentioned here that found that people start becoming insulin resistant after a period of inactivity.

One person in comments section mentioned that if the study participants had been on a good diet, not SAD, this wouldn't have necessarily happened.

What do you think? Does low carb mean exercise isn't required?

When I'm on vacation I usually am hiking, swimming, snorkeling, site seeing but laying in a hammock next to the ocean sure sounds good!

It mention a group of people 65 years old and it made me wonder how many of them were on meds that cause all types of bad consequences sometimes far worse than the actual problem it's supposed to cure.

I don't think these studies are showing anything other than that people with higher glycogen stores are showing worse short-term insulin sensitivity.

There's nothing in these studies that has anything to say about long-term insulin sensitivity.

I do suspect that someone who was already low-carbing going into this study would show little change before and after.

In short, nothing to see here.

The study is sold in the article headline as being about exercise, but the level of inactivity goes way beyond curtailing intentional exercise.

It focused on overweight people past age 65 who already were at risk of developing diabetes because they had high blood sugar. But they otherwise were healthy and active, walking about 7,000 or 8,000 steps each day.

Now, as in the other study, they sat, reducing their steps to below 1,000 a day for two weeks, after which, for a final two weeks, they moved about normally.

I don't think this puts you far beyond walking too and from the kitchen, bathroom, and bedroom. Not that surprising if some people find themselves still a little sluggish some time after two weeks of little more than bed rest.
