Walking For Weight Loss-Dont Struggle Just Walk

[imaioVideo v=1] Losing weight is a goal that is shared by a lot of people, yet there are those who can do it, and others who seem to always be struggling. Regardless of which group you fall into, walking for weight loss may be just the thing you need to get rid of a few stubborn pounds. Walking is an excellent way to give your body some physical activity, and has additional benefits that shouldn’t be overlooked. People are designed to walk; well, most people are anyway. Apart from having some sort of physical affliction that prohibits it, walking is the most natural exercise that you can do. People are made for walking, and that means that it doesn’t require any special knowledge or equipment to start walking for weight loss. Even though it is a completely natural activity, here are a few tips to help you get the most out of it. NOTE: To be safe, you should always talk to your doctor before starting a weight loss or exercise program of any kind. 1. Start slow. This is especially important if you have been sedentary up until this point. Simply start off your walks at a slow pace, and walk for as long as you feel comfortable. If you can only take a short walk around the block at first, then do it. Over time you will be able to walk farther and farther. Remember, you are walking to get rid of some extra weight, not running a marathon. 2. Walk with a friend. Having somebody to walk with makes it more enjoyable, and you may find that you end up walking more often, and greater distances than if you were alone. Not only that, but the both of you (or all of you if you walk with more than one friend) will be getting healthier, so you can feel good about doing something nice for your friend. 3. Vary your pace. Once you get into walking, try changing your pace. Walk at a regular pace for two minutes, then at a brisk pace for one minute, repeating as often as you can. Do that for a few days, and then switch to walking at a regular pace for two minutes and a brisk pace for two minutes. After a few more days walk at a regular pace for one minute and a brisk pace for two minutes. Keep increasing the amount of brisk walking you do, but return to a regular pace on occasion as that will allow you to do more brisk walking. 4. Walk often. You have to make walking a habit if you want to get all of health benefits from it. It’s not something you can do for five minutes every other week and expect to see any results. Walking is so natural that you should be able to do it every day, but even four or five days per week can make a difference. You will be able to shed those extra pounds more easily when you follow these tips for walking
