How to lose weight by walking?

Even the sparrows on the branch know that the magic recipe for losing extra pounds is a combination of proper or balanced diet and physical activity, but many initially lose motivation, mistakenly believing that running is the best physical activity for it.

It is true that extra pounds can be lost by walking and that walking is a great way to get back in shape. At a time when our lives are increasingly sedentary and under stress, walking is a great option for us. Whether we have only a few minutes or a few hours, if we walk at every opportunity, we will notice the results very quickly, especially if we follow some rules.

Try to take 15,000 steps every day. It may sound like a big number, but it is the optimal one that you should aim for every day. A step counter will certainly help you achieve this goal, and keep in mind that this number includes every step you take during the day, both those during a long walk and those you take at home. Even if you are not immediately able to cross all 15,000, raise the bar every day until you reach this figure. Every step counts, every step is better than none and will make a big difference!

If you find it too hard to do most of the steps in one walk, walk 15-20 minutes 3 or 4 times a day. A study conducted by George Washington University found that walking after meals balances blood sugar levels, which helps prevent overeating, and is also more effective for losing extra pounds than one long walk a day.

Climbing stairs and walking uphill additionally builds muscles and speeds up metabolism, which is why the body consumes more calories even at rest. Therefore, whenever you have the opportunity, use stairs instead of elevators, and occasionally add uphills to your long walks.
