If you have prediabetes, taking a 1- to 2-mile brisk walk each day may help to improve
blood sugar control. Researchers separated 237 people with pre-diabetes into 4 groups. Group 1 followed the Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP), a combination of a calorie reducing diet and moderate exercise (7-1/2 miles of brisk walking per week). The other groups only exercised. One did 7-1/2 miles of brisk walking a week, another did 11-1/2 miles of jogging a week, and the last did 11-1/2 miles of jogging per week. At the end of 6 months, the DPP and the 11-1/2 miles of brisk walking per week lowered blood sugar the most.
