Short walk after meals could improve health.

The New York Times (6/24, O’Connor, 1.68M) reports in its “Well” blog on the findings of various studies where “researchers have found that a post-meal walk, as short as 15 minutes, can in fact help with digestion and improve blood sugar levels.” A recent study published in Diabetes Care “found that in older adults who were overweight and sedentary, walking for 15 minutes shortly after each meal improved daily blood sugar levels to a greater extent than a single 45-minute walk in the morning.”
