Is it better to take a walk before or after eating?I have been reading about the benefits of taking a walk after eating but there is information too that this is a misconception, that, in fact, it is better to go for a walk first and then eat.
I am not posting this thread in the Ask Expert section as I would like to have a general discussion on it - do you walk before or after eating? Some people take a walk in the morning before or after breakfast, while others prefer late evening walks or post-dinner night walks.
I would like to know fellow members opinions, if they have had first-hand advice from Physicians about the better option - walk before eating or walk after eating. I am seriously asking about this as would like to begin a walking regime in the evenings after about 7p.m. & want to know if it is OK to have a fruit at least before I take a walk and then return to have dinner?
Also, Orthopaedics have advised not to take too brisk a walk as this wears down the knee cartilage. Do you do fast pace walking?
