Q. Am I understanding correctly that one needs to exercise after eating during the day? For instance, I notice that in the Food Picker section, you talk about how long one would walk to work off the
amount of calories just eaten. Can you comment on that?
A. With regards to exercise suggestions in the Food Picker section, we show the
duration of exercise just to illustrate the energy required to burn off the food or beverage selected (e.g. tells you how far you have to walk if you choose this item).
While its certainly a good idea to exercise each day, when you exercise
is up to your personal preference and whether your doctor suggests a certain
time. Probably the best time to exercise is a time of day that you can
I tend to do better exercising in the morning since it
helps to energize my day. Some people
like to exercise at the end of their day or after work to help reduce
stress levels. Others like to exercise mid day during lunch.
The key is to exercise every day!
