RESEARCH suggest that a short stroll after meals is better than walking at other times.

The University of Otago in New Zealand(紐西蘭) conducted a two-week study using 41 patients with type 2 diabetes, asking them to wear pedometers and other instruments. The patients first walked for 30 minutes per day, then switched to walking only 10 minutes after each meal.

Researchers found that as long as a patient begins walking within five minutes of finishing a meal, he or she only needs to walk for 10 minutes for the blood sugar level to drop by 12 percent, a better result than walking 30 minutes at other times.

The scientists also pointed out that strolling after meals not only lowers blood sugar levels, it also lessens the need for insulin injections. Moveover, it also helps maintain a healthy weight. They suggested a 10-minute walk after every large meal.
