In brief: No.
Circuit weight training is quite effective, as is traditional resistance exercise with either machine or free weights.
I personally lift weights and mountain bike! the combination is better, less boring, than doing only one. But you must free yourself from sugar and starch!

In brief: No nutritional Rx
Eat only meat or fish or cheese or eggs or poultry and low starch veggies, drink only water. In other words avoid all carbs, carbs will raise your sugar levels and then your Insulin levels.
The fats in the meat or fish or cheese or eggs or poultry will act like a "log on your metabolic fire" to keep your blood sugar stable for hours without raising insulin.
