When it comes to weight loss, people are constantly in the search for the right weight loss method. Although there is an abundance of diets that promise quick weight loss, not all of them actually work. Would you believe us if we tell you that there is a great way to lose weight without being aware?
How to Lose Weight Quickly and Efficiently
Yes. It’s possible to lose weight without spending too much money on gym memberships, expensive food ingredients, etc. The method that will help you lose weight is daily walking. You just need to know how many steps per day you need to walk in order to lose weight.
How Many Calories We Burn While Walking
This is conditioned by two factors, i.e. the walking area and your body weight. Walking for a whole hour will help you burn 400 calories if your average speed is 4 miles per hour. In order to burn 100 calories, you will need to make 2000 steps or walk one mile. To lose one pound, you will need to burn 3500 calories. To avoid the yo-yo effect, the best way is to lose a pound per week or burn 500 calories per day, i.e. 5 miles daily.
How to Walk More
- Walk you children or grandchildren to school
- Walk to your workplace or home instead of taking a bus or a taxi
- Use the stairs instead of an elevator
- When you park the car, park it a bit further than your destination and walk to it
How Often to Walk in Order to Lose Weight
In the first 3 days, you should walk 15 to 20 minutes in order to adjust to the new routine. When you feel ready, gradually increase the duration to 30 or 60 minutes daily walk. After a while, walking will become a habit and you won’t even be aware that you’re losing weight. Amazing, right?
