Why you need a two-minute walk after eating

A two-minute walk after eating can help fight diabetes, experts say. A 15 minute walk gives

maximum benefit.

Researchers studied various scientific papers andconcluded that a short walk after eating can reduce blood sugar levels, and thus the risk of developing type 2 diabetes. It's best to go for a walk 60 to 90 minutes after eating, as that's when blood sugar usually peaks.

People should aim for a 15-minute walk, but even "mini-walks" of two to five minutes provide some benefit.
