Soda 12,000-Steps Program to Manage Your Daily Addiction?

By    |   Thursday, 11 Sep 2014 08:33 AM

Soda drinkers need to take 12,000 steps daily, or roughly six miles, to wipe out the effect of the their regular addiction, according to a new study examining the impact of a high fructose diet.

Amy Bidwell, an assistant professor of exercise science at the State University of New York in Oswego, told The New York Times that the biggest takeaway from the study should be the importance of activity in life, regardless, and not an excuse to eat or drink poorly.

"I don't want people to consider these results as a license to eat badly," Bidwell told the newspaper. "If you are going to regularly consume fructose, be sure to get up and move around."

Bidwell tested 22 college-aged subjects, who drank soda and allowed themselves to be tested and answered questioned about their exercise levels. After two weeks, half of the volunteers were asked to take at least 12,000 steps a day more, according to the Times.

The results published in the May edition of Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise, reported that in two weeks of fructose loading inactivity, the healthy volunteers showed "dangerously low-density lipoproteins."

A second study in The European Journal of Clinical Nutrition, according to the Times, said the group that did not exercise showed clear signs of "incipient insulin resistance, which is typically the first step toward Type 2 diabetes."

Bidwell told the Times that the study showed that the group that took the extra 12,000 steps had essentially wiped out the ill effects of the of the extra fructose loaded.

Elizabeth Narins of Cosmopolitan wrote that the study is more evidence that regardless if you are a soda drinker or not, that it is wise to get out move and you don't need a gym membership to do it.

"While the body typically sends fructose straight to the liver, which turns it into fat and releases it into your bloodstream, physical activity helps your body turn the excess fat into fuel," Narins writes. "Of course this doesn't give you license to throw back a two-liter Sprite every time you walk the dog around the block. … But if you happen to have a few grams of fructose here and there (and you will, because it's hard to avoid), taking the long way home can help prevent the slip-up from seriously messing with your health. Sweet."
