If you think you don’t exercise at all, there is definitely a form of exercise that you actually do and which you cannot go without. This underrated and perhaps the simplest exercise is walking. Walking everyday comes with multiple health benefits and it can also help you to lose weight.
However, in order to actually reap all the health benefits and lose weight, you should practice a little intense and focused walking as just roaming around the streets while chatting with your friend will not be very fat-burning.
A study in the Journal of Exercise Nutrition and Biochemistry showed that walk can help burn fat and reduce waist circumference in obese females. For 12 weeks, the women in the study walked between 50-70 minutes 3 days per week. The researchers found that the participants lost an average of 1.5% body fat and 1.1 inches around their waists.
What’s more, by following certain tricks and techniques, you can effectively do walking to burn lots of calories with each walk.
