Walking to lose weight is mild cardio exercise and very effective when done properly. For example, today go for a walk at the best pace you can manage until you are comfortably tired. Note how far you walked. The day after tomorrow, go for another walk but increase the distance slightly. Continue walking every other day until you are walking 4 miles.

Once you are able to do that, slightly increase your pace with each walk until you are walking those 4 miles in just under 1 hour every other day. This will burn many extra calories during and immediately after your walks. An alternative method that some people use when walking to lose weight is to buy a pedometer and build up to walking at least 10,000 steps daily. (Before altering your exercise habits, you may wish to obtain the blessing of your personal physician.

HOW DO YOU DO WALKING TO LOSE WEIGHT

There are two kinds of exercise, namely, fitness and strength. Moreover, there are two kinds of fitness exercise, namely, mild and intense.

Walking to lose weight, such as a brisk walking program, is mild cardio exercise and, when done properly, it is effective for fat loss. It can be done outdoors or indoors on a treadmill. Unlike running (which is intense cardio and very effective for weight loss), it is less hard on your body and it is sustainable long term. If you are unaccustomed to exercise you could begin with mild cardio such as walking and them move on to intense cardio exercise.

Do not do walking to lose weight on consecutive days. Walk every other day or simply walk three times weekly. This will give your body time to rest and adjust. For example, today go for a walk at the best pace you can manage until you are comfortably tired. Note how far you walked. The day after tomorrow, go for another walk but increase the distance slightly. Continue walking every other day until you are walking 4 miles.

Once you are able to do that, slightly increase your pace with each walk until you are walking those 4 miles in just under 1 hour every other day. This will burn many extra calories during and immediately after your walks. It is important to do cardio exercise at the right intensity. This should be not too low and not too high.

(If you are new to exercise, and have any known health condition, you may first wish to check with your own physician before beginning any exercise plan.)
