I think that you can walk immediately after eating. The only reason I would wait would be if I was planning on doing any crunches or running. Then I would want my food to be more settled to make sure I did not get an upset stomach.

I've usually waited about 20-30 minutes so that I don't get cramps. This is especially true if I plan to do a walk on the treadmill where I will be doing some interval training...

depends a bit on what you eat- get on after a big bowl of soup, and you may feel it sloshing. A very protein dense meal can take time to digest, and it can be hard on your system if it's trying to digest food, and you're expecting your body to run. Fruit digests quickly, vegetables are dense, but eaiser to digest.

Experiment and find out at what point you feel comfortable on the treadmill after eating. No one here has your digestive system...

i have read that it's different for each person, it all depends on your body and on your digestive system.
