Obesity is the leading cause of one our nation's greatest ailments: Type 2 Diabetes.
In one study, people at high risk of diabetes decreased their risk 50% with consistent exercise (e.g. walking), combined with lower dietary fat intake and a 5%- 7% weight loss.
That is powerful information and illustrates that consistent daily use of a treadmill desk such as the TrekDesk can potentially extend life and defend against the development of serious illness such as diabetes and dementia.
There is further research that illustrates a combination of weight loss, diet, and walking can in some instances reverse the onset of diabetes.
