According to the book Glycemic Load Diet by Dr. Rob Thompson, M.D. “Researchers found that it takes between twenty and thirty minutes of walking to switch on insulin sensitivity” (p.81). Making your muscles sensitive to insulin is key to losing weight and staying lean.
If you want to get ripped, as soon as you finish your strength training exercise hit the pavement and start walking for twenty to thirty minutes. Sip on your Protein Shake as you go and take advantage of your insulin sensitivity, your body will absorb the nutrients quickly for recovery.
