A large number of people are not satisfied with the way they look and their weight, and as a result, they chose to undergo various diets. Unfortunately, these diets rarely work, and they can even end up endangering your overall health instead of boosting it.
Therefore, we are going to present you a slower, but far more efficient way to lose weight naturally, and the best thing of all is that it doesn’t require any expensive ingredients, products or diets – just your feet.
Believe it or not, the human body is designed in such a way that it can lose weight just by walking and staying active throughout the day. The amount of weight you are going to lose depends on two factors:
- Walking area
- Body weight
For example, walking for one hour can help you burn 400 calories. To be more specific, 100 calories are burned every 2,000 steps, meaning that in order to burn those calories, you need to walk exactly 1 mile, and in order to lose 1 pound, you need to burn 3,500 calories.
So by aiming to burn 500 calories per day, you will have to walk 5 miles on daily basis.
Additional Tips on How to Walk More:
- Walk to school or job place and walk back home
- Avoid using the bus on daily basis
- Avoid using lifts, only stairs
- Park your car further away from your destination, that way you can walk to your parking spot
It is recommended that you walk only 15-20 minutes for the first 3 days, and you can gradually increase the walking time up to 30 and 60 minutes per day. This method is completely safe and has been scientifically proven as efficient.
