  • okay that makes sense, if you eat, you may need to exercise, to keep your blood sugar, in balance, (just tricky wording threw many off, I guess that was suppose to be funny) Got the point, thanks! - by GEMINISUE

  • Another point to make is that a 20 minute walk will immediately lower your blood sugar. So if your post meal sugar is high, strap on a pair of sneakers and open up the front door! Suprised to see so many people lack a sense of humor! GREAT POST! - by STEPHANALILLEY
