What is the benefit of walking for two minutes after eating a meal?

A study found that going for a short walk after a meal can lower blood sugar and keep the risk of type 2 diabetes away.

Experts say moving 60 to 90 minutes after eating is optimal because it is at this time that blood sugar levels reach their peak, allowing the muscles to absorb fuel from the food.

People should aim for a 15-minute walk, but even a "mini-walk" of two to five minutes offers some benefits, they add.
