What exercise can I do and what should I avoid for a herniated C5 disc?

Avoid heavy lifting: What exercises one performs with a disherniated disc depends on the current symptoms and signs caused by the disc problem.

If you eat too much sugar in one sitting, is there any amount of exercise you can do to avoid it turning into stored fat (that day)?
