If you indulge in a high-fat comfort food for dinner, how might you minimize its impact?
Which of the choices below do you think would minimize the impact of the dinner best:
- By fasting the next day
- By doing nothing, one meal won't hurt anything
- By taking a leisurely walk for 45 minutes after the meal
The best answer is C, by taking a leisurely walk for 45 minutes after the meal and this is why:
Fasting is never a good idea because it slows your metabolism. In turn, your body burns fewer calories.
It is true that one heavy meal won't hurt anyone and it is only natural to indulge at large social
gatherings. If the opportunity presents itself, taking part in an activity that can offset the impact of a
heavy meal is a good idea.
The best and least rigorous measure to minimize the impact of a heavy meal is to walk.
