Health Tip: Walk to Your Favorite Restaurant
(HealthDay News) -- Why drive to a restaurant that's close by?
Experts say if the weather cooperates and the restaurant isn't too
far, walk before you dine.
The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics suggests: Selecting a restaurant that's within a walkable distance of
about 10-15 minutes; you'll get about 30 minutes of exercise
without having to deal with parking.Asking your dining partners to walk with you and enjoy a brisk
walk to catch up before the meal. And you can take a nice stroll
after eating to aid digestion.If you are eating fast food, park the car and dine in the
restaurant, rather than using the drive-through lane.
