There is a base amount of calories we all burn in a day, which is referred to as resting metabolism. This number stays relatively stable depending on the amount of movement we do each day by walking inside the house, running errands. Intentional exercise adds to the total number of calories we burn. But it needs to be understood that weight is not a simple calorie equation. Adding more movement in your daily life can help in increasing the calorie burn and thus weight loss.

Working out regularly doesn't just help with weight loss but also helps manage the blood sugar levels. A study conducted in 2016 found that walking 10 minutes after each meal helps in lowering the blood sugar level in people suffering from type 2 diabetes. Walking 10 minutes after having a meal is more beneficial than walking for 30 minutes during any other time of the day.
