I am not diabetic, but I am fat (5''4", 275 pounds), and I have been doing yoga for almost 10 years. Most of the poses shown here don''t work for fat folks, because our tummies and thighs get in the way. Simple adaptations to the basic poses can be done, however, that make them accessible. For example, it is difficult for many of us to sit in the lotus (or modified lotus) position. Sitting with legs stretched out front in a v provides us with more stability, and accommodates our bellies and thighs.
I am 44 years old, i am diabetic Type 2 since 2005
Recently My Blood sugar HBA1C is 194.
Please advise by which yoga can be done to reduce it.
It will be great pleasure and thanks if i will get correct guidance.
So i have been reading the post and the fat ppl post say that it doesnt work! But why do you say it does? By the way im not trying to be mean about the words i said.
I am really overweight I''m 30 years old and I weigh 119kg, everywhere you look you cant seem to find and yoga excercise regime that will work for someone with big thighs and a tummy, i mean really i wont be able to do some of those twists and things, cant anyone out there give us a work out that fat people can actually do. I starting to think all the websites only accommodates the smaller people. I''m unable to go to a studio, i would rather want to do it at home, where can i find a workout. Please help!!!!!!!!!
Obesity is the result of a hormonal imbalance, not a caloric one! Eating easy to digest carbohydrate-rich foods cause insulin levels to spike. The more insulin is secreted, the more fat is stored. Those carbs literally make us fat, and they drive us to accumulate more fat, and we get hungrier and more sedentary in the process.
Tumbling estrogen levels during menopause have shown to plays a key role in fat storage at that time in women''s lives.
So to lose fat and be healthy, you need to keep your carb load to 20 gms a day. No need to starve yourself and excercise excessively. Giving up carbs is a sacrifice one has to make. But the alternative is not appealing.
