I walk 90 minutes, everyday, 365 days a year. Outside and not all at once. Usually 30 minutes at a time. This has really helped me in many ways health wise.
Now the Dr. Says slow down, do not walk as much..
How about you?

I walk practically every day! It definitely helps me to regulate my blood glucose and weight. I can also eat more healthy carbs, such as low glycemic fruit with minimal blood glucose increase. With the exception of some sort of ailment that puts you at risk, I can't imagine why your doctor would tell you to slow down.

do you have a condition which would make exertion dangerous for you? Something like a heart condition?

I just increased my walking from 2 miles a day to 3.2 miles. I also do either aerobics or weight training each day. More seems to be better in my case, just going by my numbers. I think it is helpful to spread out the exercise to keep a continual impact on blood glucose, but I still find it easier to do it all at one time in the mornings.
