Effect of walking exercise on abdominal fat, insulin resistance and serum cytokines✨✨ walking can provide a safe and effective lifestyle strategy against abdominal #obesity and serum insulin resistance and inflammatory markers ✨✨ Walking is one of the easiest and most cost effective form of exercise ✨🌱✨🌱
Try to increase the duration of walks and then increase the pace. Choose a safe location✨🌱Make walks more enjoyable ✨✨walk with a friend or family✨☺️
Combining Walking along with low carbohydrate diet and good sleep is more effective than walking alone ✨✨
A study in 2014 showed the positive effects of #walking on burning fat and reducing waist circumference in overweight females. The women walked between 50-70 minutes 3 days per week for a total of 12 weeks. Another study Effect of walking exercise on abdominal fat, insulin resistance and serum cytokines in obese women found that walking exercise significantly lowers the serum insulin resistant cytokine level, decreasing the insulin function as well as the insulin resistance index by reducing abdominal obesity.
The science behind obesity and inflammation ✨🌱✨🌱✨🌱✨🌱Excessive surplus energy stored in abdominal fat tissue secondary to overeating and physical inactivity produce #cytokines, releaseing them into the circulation. The released cytokines are transported through skeletal muscle and liver tissue by blood vessels, and primarily induce insulin resistance characterized by the dysfunction of carbohydrate metabolism, leading to a variety of chronic degenerative diseases such as Type 2 #diabetes, hyperglycemia, hypertension and cardiovascular disease.
