New research tells us that exercising after a meal ignites the food's thermic effect-the food's natural ability to boost metabolism and more calories.
When men take a twenty-minute walk following a meal their metabolic rate rises 29 percent. A brisk walk speeds up the calorie burning effect of the food and burns calories from the exercise also.
Just make sure that when you exercise after eating it's something not too strenuous. A nice brisk walk can actually speed up digestion, but anything more might actually interfere with digestion of your meal
