Having a high-fat meal once in a while…even fairly frequently…isn’t as bad as you might think, as long as you follow the meal up with this one simple approach.
Researchers in Japan found that people who are sedentary after having a high-fat meal will have triglyceride and cholesterol spikes that are much higher than people who went for a short walk or lifted light weights following their meals.
They also found that the control over the boost in the triglycerides was better when participants exercised after a meal as opposed to before it.
Triglyceride levels in excess of 150mg/Dl are considered dangerous, and also are cited as the main cause of coronary artery disease, which leads to heart attack.
While most health and wellness professionals will tell you that the best time to exercise is anytime and that you should never be eating that high-fat meal, some doctors say it is worth noting and further study to consider the effects of post-meal exercise on blood triglyceride and cholesterol levels.
