Is there any Hadith which states that one should take forty steps after eating meals?



I have not come across this in any Hadith.

‘Allamah Ibn Qayyim (rahimahullah) has cited this as the advice of the Arab doctor; Al Harith ibn Kaladah who suggested taking forty steps after partaking of dinner.

(Zadul Ma’ad, vol. 4 pg. 374)
