How Much Do You Have to Walk to Lose Weight?
You don’t need to go to the gym to get a quality workout — just head out the front door for a brisk walk. It’s the most popular way to stay fit. Walking is a great way to get some cardiovascular exercise when you are unable to do something more strenuous.
In fact, many doctors recommend that people start walking to lose weight and improve the health of their lungs, heart, bones and muscles. Ideally, you want to walk enough to make a difference so it is important to understand the general guidelines.
Walking helps you lose weight when it contributes to a calorie deficit. By increasing your activity and decreasing the number of calories you eat, you force your body to dip into your fat stores to fuel you. A deficit of 500 to 1,000 calories yields a loss of 1 to 2 pounds per week.
