Benefits of An After Meal Walk… 10 minutes

BENEFITS OF AN AFTER MEAL WALK

A 10-minute walk after a meal appears to bring big benefits for those with diabetes in reducing their blood sugar

What was interesting was that generally the main meal of the day tends to be the highest in carbohydrate intake and when most people tend to be the least active right after that meal. But when the participants took a 10-minute walk shortly after this meal, there was a significant reduction in their blood sugar.
