Control your blood sugar when you're short on time: Hoof it up a hill a few times before eating... Lower your blood sugar with some "exercise" snacking (short intervals on hilly terrain), before you eat. Research participants who did six one-minute intense-incline walking intervals 30 minutes before breakfast saw a 17 percent less high level in post-meal blood sugar compared to those who didn't exercise. They also saw a 13 percent less high level compared to those who did a continuous 30-minute workout. Quick bursts of activity are a great way for time-crunched people to fit in some exercise and keep blood sugar levels in check. (taken from Cleveland Clinic Wellness)
