Short post meal walks improves glycemic control

A 15-minute walk timed just right after each meal appears to help regulate blood sugar levels.

post meal walks

Both sustained morning walking and post-meal walking significantly improved 24-h glycemic control. Moreover, post-meal walking was significantly more effective than 45 min of sustained morning or afternoon walking in lowering post-dinner glucose.

“Short, intermittent bouts of post-meal walking appear to be an effective way to control postprandial hyperglycemia.” Smaller doses of exercise repeated several times per day have greater overall benefits to blood sugar control than one large sustained dose - especially if those short bouts are timed just right.
