Your blood sugar rises after you eat, especially when you eat a carb heavy meal. But research has found that walking for just 10 minutes after each meal can significantly lower your blood sugar. This research also shows that people tend to walk longer when they walk after meals. This is great news for those who have diabetes. But everyone can benefit. Better blood sugar control can help keep you healthy and reduce your risk of diabetes. And getting active is a natural, easy way to manage your blood sugar. Plus, it also helps you meet your fitness goals. For best results, go for a walk within 30 minutes of eating your meal.
Make sure to talk with your doctor before starting any new exercise routine.
