Exercise and High Fat Food

 

While no one is advocating that people should be eating high fat foods, there is good news for those who like to indulge now and then.

A study conducted at Indiana University shows that if a person walks moderately for 45 minutes about 2 hours after a high fat meal the damage done by the fat is reversed.

The researchers study was done by measuring the dilation of the artery in the arm which is used for measuring blood pressure. In general, a range of 3 to 5 is poor, and 6 to 10 perfect.

After a high fat meal the measurement was 4, after a fat free meal the measurement was 6 to 6.5, but after a high fat meal and a walk, the measurement went from 6 to 8.

So get out there and walk!
