Lightbulb Interval Training Helps Blood Sugar?

RealAge had a great article this morning about how interval training (short bursts of intense cardio activity followed by a period of lower level intensity exercise) can help us metabolize blood sugar:

Quote:
Here's how the study worked. Each man worked out on a stationary bike three times a week for a minimum of 17 minutes per session. Sounds pretty doable. Then, during the sessions, they threw in a handful of 30-second bursts of high-intensity cycling. Again, not too taxing. After the bursts, they rested or cycled slowly for 4 minutes. Even better! The result? When the men were given the equivalent of a meal's worth of glucose at the end of the study, their bodies metabolized it better than before the study.
You can read the whole article here.

I've been doing interval training since last fall, and I find that my weight has also been coming off more since then. Coincidence?
