Earlier this month, Santa Claus was diagnosed with type-2 diabetes. By working with a team of top nutritionists, he has already improved his diet by eliminating foods and beverages that promote diabetes (like sodas, sugary cookies and white bread) while focusing on eating the foods that prevent diabetes and regulate healthy blood sugar metabolism: fresh produce, raw nuts, whole grains, healthy plant-based fats and targeted nutritional supplements that boost insulin sensitivity. (See part one of this story.)

This week, Santa is focusing on boosting his exercise to accelerate his progress. "I have treadmill that some thoughtful Christmas fans bought for me, and now I'm finally putting it to good use," Santa told NewsTarget. In a series of emails, Santa explained that he is now walking on the treadmill for thirty minutes, twice a day. "Although the first day was very difficult, I'm already feeling more energy now, and the walking is getting a bit easier," Santa said.

"Frequent cardiovascular exercise is absolutely essential for reversing type-2 diabetes," said Mike Adams, also known as, the Health Ranger, who overcame his own prediabetic condition through the use of exercise, dietary improvements and nutritional supplements. "Exercise boosts insulin sensitivity, making the insulin produced by your pancreas more effective and reversing the downward spiral of insulin insensitivity commonly experienced by diabetics who fail to exercise."

Although Santa is hitting the treadmill twice daily, rapid weight loss is not the immediate goal. As explained by his team of nutritional health advisors (Connie Bennett, Byron Richards, Mike Adams and Dr. Gabriel Cousens), one of the goals of cardiovascular exercise is to reactivate the body's calorie-burning biochemistry and enhance Santa's fitness, bone density and lean body mass, which will cause him to naturally burn more calories even when riding in his sleigh. Another benefit of exercise is that it helps circulate all the nutrients Santa has been consuming since reforming his diet earlier this month.

"Exercising like this is really convenient for my schedule," explained Santa, who is able to make lists -- and check them twice -- while walking on the treadmill at a steady, comfortable pace. "I plan to do all my Christmas lists this way from now on."

As Santa continues to improve his nutrition and exercise habits, NewsTarget will publish details on the humor index page. You can also follow this story at SugarShockBlog.com.

About the author:Mike Adams (aka the "Health Ranger") is a best selling author (#1 best selling science book on Amazon.com) and a globally recognized scientific researcher in clean foods. He serves as the founding editor of NaturalNews.com and the lab science director of an internationally accredited (ISO 17025) analytical laboratory known as CWC Labs. There, he was awarded a Certificate of Excellence for achieving extremely high accuracy in the analysis of toxic elements in unknown water samples using ICP-MS instrumentation. Adams is also highly proficient in running liquid chromatography, ion chromatography and mass spectrometry time-of-flight analytical instrumentation.

Adams is a person of color whose ancestors include Africans and Native American Indians. He's also of Native American heritage, which he credits as inspiring his "Health Ranger" passion for protecting life and nature against the destruction caused by chemicals, heavy metals and other forms of pollution.

Adams is the founder and publisher of the open source science journal Natural Science Journal, the author of numerous peer-reviewed science papers published by the journal, and the author of the world's first book that published ICP-MS heavy metals analysis results for foods, dietary supplements, pet food, spices and fast food. The book is entitled Food Forensics and is published by BenBella Books.

In his laboratory research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products.

In addition to his lab work, Adams is also the (non-paid) executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), an organization that redirects 100% of its donations receipts to grant programs that teach children and women how to grow their own food or vastly improve their nutrition. Through the non-profit CWC, Adams also launched Nutrition Rescue, a program that donates essential vitamins to people in need. Click here to see some of the CWC success stories.

With a background in science and software technology, Adams is the original founder of the email newsletter technology company known as Arial Software. Using his technical experience combined with his love for natural health, Adams developed and deployed the content management system currently driving NaturalNews.com. He also engineered the high-level statistical algorithms that power SCIENCE.naturalnews.com, a massive research resource featuring over 10 million scientific studies.

Adams is well known for his incredibly popular consumer activism video blowing the lid on fake blueberries used throughout the food supply. He has also exposed "strange fibers" found in Chicken McNuggets, fake academic credentials of so-called health "gurus," dangerous "detox" products imported as battery acid and sold for oral consumption, fake acai berry scams, the California raw milk raids, the vaccine research fraud revealed by industry whistleblowers and many other topics.

Adams has also helped defend the rights of home gardeners and protect the medical freedom rights of parents. Adams is widely recognized to have made a remarkable global impact on issues like GMOs, vaccines, nutrition therapies, human consciousness.

In addition to his activism, Adams is an accomplished musician who has released over a dozen popular songs covering a variety of activism topics.
