    You're right on. Walking's great. Helps kick get your body to break down triglycerides. Walking also is one of the highest fat burning exercises there is (per calorie burned). That said, you can burn more calories with higher intensity exercise, and by extension more fat.

    I like to walk twice a day, once for 15 minutes in the morning, then an hour at lunch. I used to smoke, so walking gets me up and about and breaks the monotony of being in the chair all day.

  3. I know one thing that helped me lose weight before I started getting into lifting a few years ago was going for a walk after dinner, or doing anything other than sitting on my ass not moving.....

    Can't now, since its 10 effing degrees (F), but if we go to the big city we'll go walk the mall after lunch or supper at a resturaunt.

    I give a f**K!!

  4. Walking can be great, especially for couples, it can be the beginning of something good since it doesnt take too much effort to get started.

  5. I love going for walks. A long walk can be better for you than running in that it doesn't put as much pressure on the knees and you will lose less muscle walking rather than all out running. Its better in the spring though since most sidewalks aren't plowed and its no fun slipping on ice.

  6. I was hitting 200 pounds when I realized to reduce weight. My blood works and cholesterol levels came normal but my blood pressure was elevated. I was prescribed medicine for BP but I was skeptical to start the dosages for BP. I learnt yoga from a guru and started practicing Surya Namaskar & Kapalbathi. I also started a brisk walking regimen. All these made me shed 25pounds in 3 weeks. I need to reduce 20 more pounds to reach my BMI but am really confident that I can reduce that with determination.

  7. ive read a lot about the benefits of walking first thing in the morning before eating anything

  8. good i walk ALOT!

    I agree with your comments

  18. Walking is good for health.For long live we should walk regularly in the morning before breakfast.

  19. I have gradually lost over 30 pounds of fat just from walking a few times a week. I go several miles now but I didn't start out going that far.

    IMHO there is not much excuse for not doing this one. It's not difficult. It won't hurt your joints. If you're fat then you are already better insulated against the cold weather than thinner people. You just gotta nut up and do it.

  20. Started doing this...
    How are u guys doing this? 30 min? 45 min?

    Brisk walking or casual?

    I did it 1 day last week... I like to do it in place of cardio cause I hate cardio!

    Lift the fŁcking weight from the floor, or leave it on the ground. The thoughts are supposed to be daunting. The pain is meant to be tormenting.

    Brisk walking and casual...Brisk walking for cardio and casual to usually clear my mind..but both relieve stress.

  22. Yeah I'm going to start doing that more often.

  23. My brother walked everywhere for about 3 months (he didn't have a car and most everything he needed was in walking distance.) He lost 30 lbs without trying.
    Eat Healthy, Live Healthy, and Run Run Run!!!

  24. I can't stand running in the least bit, so I'll walk with a weighted pack.

It is a great way to strengthen your bones. Walking about 30 minutes a day increases your bone density and slows down bone loss in your legs. This low-impact exercise is also said to target your spine, legs and hips. It promotes mental well-being. Known as a great stress-buster, if you walk outdoors, the combination of fresh air and exercise is an excellent way to boost your morale and mood.

    Helps prevent type 2 diabetes. Studies have revealed that walking approximately 150 minutes per week can reduce the risk of diabetes.
    Walking, combined with a sensible healthy diet rich in greens and low in added dietary fats and preservatives helps to prevent Type 2. Walking alone won't do much if the person never changes their diet. I try to stress this to my fiance. It aggravates me because he knows my profession and although he is trying, something things are just hard to break out of an old dog's habits! He has high cholesterol and high blood pressure, and has not really changed his diet (prior to meeting me) at all! Since planning our wedding I have encouraged him to add cardio to his workouts, and minimize the "extra" fat and sugars in his diet! He is one of those people who thinks they will lose the flavor if they buy fat free or light fat selections. I believe it is all in their head. We will get married in less than two months and then be living together, and I told him there is no way with me being a nutritionist that I will allow my husband to walk around unhealthy! I want him to be healthy so we can live happily ever after, so slowly I am making changes for him to adjust to prior to our sharing a dwelling so he isn't shocked.
    With me also being a national level competitor I don't like to have regular cheats, in fact I rarely do! And that's like an everyday thing for him and I love him for him, but I also don't want the temptation!!! no way!
    okay, sorry....I just noticed I went from statement, to babble, to venting! Eeek! Sorry.

    Trying to change someone in a marriage to meet ur expectations is not often successful. Keep us posted on ur progress & good luck.

  27. I am totally agree with you and It is really appreciable. I also think that walking is most effective way to stay healthy and also fast way to do reduce weight. I always awoke early in the morning and go for a walk for 60 to 80 minutes.
