How Walking for Exercise Helps you Lose Weight
by: Bridget Mwape
exercise is a purposeful, brisk walk specifically designed for the purpose of
improving health. It is one of the best and cheapest forms of exercise. If you
want to improve your general health and keep fit, or if you want to reduce your
weight, walking is a good place to start.
Walking keeps you
fit and helps you take off extra weight and keep it off. It's cheap, it's simple
and almost anybody can do it. Walking has a multitude of health benefits for
everyone. Walking helps reduce the risk of coronary heart disease and stroke,
lowers high blood pressure, helps reduce weight and body fat, helps reduce risk
of some cancers, gives you more energy, helps you sleep better, helps you look
better and helps those people who are recovering from a period of ill-health.
exercise does not need to be strenuous to produce results. Even walking for 30
minutes a day has been reported to produce measurable benefits, even among those
who are least active.
If you want to feel great, have more energy and improve your overall health,
take a walk. Walking is one of the best forms of exercise and you can do it
almost anywhere, anytime, and for free. Do at least 30 minutes of exercise, like
brisk walking, most days of the week. The idea is to use up more calories than
you eat. You need to use up the day's calories and some of the calories stored
in your body fat.
Along with its
benefits to the heart, walking improves circulation, helps breathing, combats
depression, bolsters the immune system, helps prevent osteoporosis, helps
control weight and helps prevent and control diabetes. It's a gentle exercise
and it’s suitable if you are recovering from heart trouble, a stroke or other
illness. It helps the total circulation of blood throughout the body, and thus
has a direct effect on your overall feeling of health.
Remember, if you
have a medical condition, are overweight, over 40 years of age or haven't
exercised regularly for a long time, check with your doctor before you start any
type of exercise program. Your doctor or other health worker can help you set
sensible goals based on a proper weight for your height, build and age.
