The Surprising Health Benefits of Walking After Dinner

Are you eating your biggest meal late in the day? Emerging research shows it might not align well with our biological clocks. But fear not, there is a simple solution: an after-dinner walk. Here are the key takeaways from this article:

  • An after-dinner walk can help clear glucose from our blood without relying on insulin, blunting blood sugar’s rise and allowing it to come down quicker.
