Walking after you eat is good for your health

Posted: Updated:
(WTVM) -

After a meal, don't sit in front of the TV or take a quick nap; instead, get up and move.

Walking can help keep off the pounds and may even prevent diabetes.

Researchers at George Washington University found taking a 15 minute walk after every meal can reduce blood sugar levels.

They also discovered the method is more effective than taking one 45 minute walk every day.

Doctors say exercise right after a meal keeps blood sugar from spiking.
