Health Tip: Walk to Your Favorite Restaurant
Add exercise to your menu

(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.
