One of the biggest problems that many people are struggling with is the excess pounds and obesity. There are so many diets that promise losing weight in an instance, but they are really not so effective and very disappointing.
If you are wondering if there is a way to lose the extra pounds without even being aware of it, the answer is YES.
Even more surprising is that you don’t need expensive equipment and a lot of money to achieve the goal. You just need to walk!
In order to lose weight and burn the fat you need to walk little bit more than you usually do.
How many calories you need to burn and how many steps you need to do depend on 2 factors: the walking area and the body weight.
If you walk 4 miles per hour, which is the average speed, the body will burn 400 calories. To burn 100 calories you need to walk 200 steps or 1 mile.
The healthiest way to lose the extra pounds is to try to lose 1 pound in one week. This way you will burn the fat and avoid the undesired yo-yo effect. To achieve that you need to burn 500 calories a day or to walk for 5 miles.
By changing the everyday routine just a little bit at a time you can lose weight in no time. The first change you need to do is to stop using taxi, car or bus. Walk instead. You can walk the children to school and walk to work.
Instead of using the elevator, use the stairs. Also park the car little bit further and walk to the desired destination.
Start slowly. The first 3 days walk for 15 – 20 minutes and slowly increase the walking time to 30 minutes or 1 hour a day.
According to many studies this is the healthiest and most effective way to lose weight.
