Take a Walk

Walking after for at least 15 minutes after a meal can help prevent type 2 diabetes. A recent study compared exercising for 15 minutes after each meal to exercising for 45 minutes once per day. They found that the brief walk after a meal was just as effective at preventing high blood sugars.  Here is an excerpt from the USA Today article:

“You eat a meal. You wait a half-hour and then you go for a 15-minute walk, and it has proven effective in controlling blood sugar levels, but you have to do it every day after every meal.”

Who has 45 minutes? Not many people. Who has 15 minutes after a meal? Most of us 😉
