New York: A high-fat meal may not be quite as harmful to your body if you exercise shortly afterward, a new study has claimed.Japanese researchers found that walking and doing light resistance training one hour after eating a high-fat meal reduces the boost in triglycerides, fats in the blood, normally seen after consuming this type of food.Moreover, exercising after eating did a better job of reducing elevations in triglyceride levels than exercising before a meal.High levels of triglycerides can increase the risk of heart disease.Regular exercise reduces triglyceride levels, but few studies had looked at the effect of exercise on triglyceride levels shortly after eating, the researchers said.However, because the study was small, further research is needed to know whether the results apply to the general population, the researchers added.In the new study, researchers from Kyoto Prefectural University measured triglyceride levels in 10 men and women after they had eaten a fatty meal (about 38 per cent fat). On two separate days, people exercised either one hour before or one hour after eating the meal. On a third day, people did not exercise after eating.
