Sure you walk every day - you walk all around your house, you walk from your house to your car; from your car to your workplace. The thought of walking some more cannot be very appealing. However, if you want to lose weight walking, this kind of walking is not enough. If it were; there'd be a lot less overweight people in the world.
How to Lose Weight Walking
In order to lose weight walking you need to up the tempo and walk at a brisk pace for at least one hour a day, everyday. Walking at a brisk pace burns 300 to 400 calories an hour depending on your weight. If all you do is walk for one hour a day, you will burn at least 100,800 calories in a year, which adds up to a weight loss of 28 pounds in one year; that too without dieting. Of course, you cannot increase the amount of calories you eat and expect the same amount of weight loss. In order to lose weight walking, you need to maintain your current food intake at the very least.
If you would like to lose a little more, then decrease your calories by just 200 and you will lose about 50 pounds in a year. Not bad for walking and giving up a soda, huh? If the idea of dieting hard and doing Tae Bo keeps you from getting fit, there is no excuse anymore. You can lose weight walking. It doesn't take a lot of skill to do that! Slipping on a pair of comfortable walking shoes and going wherever your feet lead you can give you a feeling of exhilaration that few other activities offer.
Going for a walk outdoors is undoubtedly one of the best forms of exercise there is. Not only will you lose weight walking but you will also get to enjoy the simple pleasures of nature at its best.
