Get In Shape - Walking To Lose Weight

Walking is a great way to help you lose weight. Like any exercise done regularly, it burns off the extra calories and tones up your legs and mid-section.

To get the most benefits though, you should combine walking as a way to lose weight with an appropriate diet. This doesn't need to mean cutting back on your food intake.

Simply pay more attention to what you eat. And follow the tips on this page to get your walking program off to a good start...

Getting Started

Let's assume you are overweight and your goal is to lose 30 lbs. over the next few months. If you haven't done much exercise lately I recommend a visit to your doctor and talk to him about your plans to get in shape.

You should also have an idea of the kind of foods to eat and those to avoid from now on. This isn't a diet - it's a life style change. And walking is one of the more enjoyable exercises you can do to help you reach your goal!



Why Walk?

Well, our bodies are made for walking! It's a natural exercise that does not put too much strain on your muscles and skeletal structure. But you still get the benefits you would from a more vigorous exercise like running. Here are a few of the many benefits you can look forward to when you start your walking to lose weight program.

  • You burn off calories on a regular basis

  • Walking every day is easy to do. Even in winter if you dress correctly.

  • You'll find that your energy level increases

  • Like many people who exercise often, you'll sleep better

  • You will have lower levels of stress

Here's a brief video on exercise walking
