Walking for Weight Loss
Walking Can Help You Lose Weight
Want to lose weight, tone up your body, and get slim? Want to watch the pounds drop away and have more energy and vitality than you have ever had before. Want a simple way to get fit and stay fit for the rest of your life? Then step out with a regular routine of fitness walking and a diet plan you really can keep up – The Walker’s Diet. The perfect weight management plan. Fitness walking is an aerobic exercise – it not only keeps you fit but it helps you slim, burning off around 180 calories every 30 minutes (150lb/68kg person walking briskly at 3.5 – 4.0 m.p.h.). And it speeds up your metabolic rate – the time taken to burn calories. If you walk in the low to moderate range of your target heart rate, you will burn stored fat as fuel after the first 20 minutes. And the longer you walk, the more fat you will burn.
Combined with The Walker’s Diet, fitness walking is the perfect weight management plan. You don’t need to count calories. Making permanent changes in your eating habits rather than ‘going on a diet’ is the key to it. All you do is focus on foods in the Healthy Food Pyramid.
You have a right to be fit. And you have a right to good health and a long life. But when it comes down to it, only you can make the changes that will bring you these benefits. You may have tried and failed with other exercises and diet routines, but tell yourself that this time you are going to succeed; this time you are going to be a winner. But to be a winner you have to accept responsibility for yourself.
Only you are responsible for your heart. Only you are responsible for your pulse, your blood pressure, your lungs, your body fat, your cholesterol level and your weight. But with the perfect weight management plan, you can learn how to overcome inertia, how to motivate yourself, how to eat healthily and how to walk and keep walking.
