A small study indicates that 15 minutes of moderate walking after dinner could help older people reduce their risk of getting diabetes. Researcher Loretta DiPietro of the George Washington University School of Public Health and Health Services saw this in 10 people ages 60 or older who had higher-than normal blood sugar and not enough exercise. The people walked 15 minutes after dinner, and 45 minutes around 10:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. She looked at their blood sugar, or glycemic control: "The greatest improvements in glycemic control came from walking after the evening meal.’’ DiPetro says that, rather than sitting on the couch after dinner, take a walk first.Source: http://www.hhs.gov
