Can Walking to Lose Weight Really Be Effective in Helping You Shed Those Unwanted Pounds?

Walking can't really be an effective weight loss method, can it? I know that when many people think of walking as a form of exercise an image comes to mind of senior citizens strolling around a shopping mall at 6 am. I mean it seems just too easy. Well, don't underestimate just how good walking is at helping you shed that unwanted weight. Here are the answers to a few questions you might have about walking.

Why is walking a good form of exercise?

The list of reasons why walking is a great exercise is a long one, so I'm not going to name them all but here are a few good ones:

Walking is low impact. If an exercise is described as low impact that means it is easy on your bones and joints. If you are just starting a new weight loss program some exercises may be too strenuous for you at first. So walking is a good way to get you up and to start losing weight.
Walking is very affordable. If you want to walk your way to being healthy, you don't have to invest a lot of money. It doesn't require an expensive gym membership or pricey exercise equipment that may just end up taking up space in your house. Really the only thing you need is a pair of comfortable shoes, which you probably already own.
Walking can be done almost everywhere. It doesn't matter where you live, whether it's a million dollar mansion in Beverly Hills, a rural farm in Idaho or a basement apartment in the Bronx, you can walk your way to being fit. Even if you are doing time in a 9 x 5 cell you can walk in place. Wherever your location, you can start losing weight by walking.

How much weight can I really lose by walking?

This question really depends on how motivated you are in your weight loss goals. It's surprising how great the results can be when you combine walking with a low-calorie diet. There are many factors that contribute to how many calories you can burn while walking. You have to take into consideration your starting weight and how far and how fast you are walking. For example in a chart from Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise, a 200-pound person walking at 2 miles per hour will burn about 114 calories per mile. Walking at a pace of 5 miles per hour, that number jumps to145 calories.

Now let's do a little math. According to those numbers, in a 30-minute walk, a person weighing 200 pounds could burn anywhere from 114 to over 360 calories (the number of calories burned depends on how fast the person is walking). If you walk regularly for just 30 minutes a day, that's potentially over 130,000 calories a year. There are roughly 3500 calories in one pound of fat, so that means in one year you could lose almost 40 pounds just from walking! Those are amazing results from such a simple exercise. You can really increase the calories you burn if you raise your heart rate by []incorporating some cardio exercises into your walking routine.

Walking sounds like the exercise for me, but how do I know the intensity I should start with?

Well, the first thing you should always do is talk to your doctor when beginning any new fitness plan. If you get the green light from your physician then you are ready to begin. The great thing about walking is that it is so easy to set a custom level that works for you. Try to begin by walking at a pace where you can still carry a conversation but have difficulty singing. This may sound kind of silly but it is a good way to judge just how hard you are huffing and puffing.

In the beginning, try to focus more on the amount of time you are walking at first rather than the distance it is much easier this way to gradually increase your workout. When you can comfortably walk for 30 minutes to 1 hour than you can slowly start to increase your speed. Soon those unwanted pounds will be melting right off you. It's okay if you don't have time to walk every single day just try to walk as often as you can. It might help you walk consistently if you create and commit to a schedule instead of just doing it when you can find time.

If you're ready for a change and think walking is right for you just remember to take it slow at first. If you try to do too much, in the beginning, you could end up injuring yourself and that is never a good thing.
