There is plenty of rock solid evidence showing the role of exercise and weight loss in preventing DM 2.  In fact, in the Diabetes Prevention Program Outcomes Study, participants who were asked to lose 7% of their body weight and exercise 150 minutes/week decreased their risk of developing DM2 by 58% compared to placebo. And because we know some of you are wondering, yes, this was as superior prevential strategy than Metformin 850mg BID as it was only associated with a 38% decreased risk compared to placebo. Move it!!
