Simple Fat Loss
When you think about losing weight and fat loss…what is the first thing that comes to mind?
I can guarantee a good majority of you will say things such as running and other forms of cardio.
What if I told you there is something WAY easier, low-impact and often overlooked?!
Well let me introduce you all to WALKING. Yes, I said walking.
Walking is the the easiest form of cardio you can and should be doing every day. It is recommend to get a minimum of 10,000 steps per day…and I’m sure some of you are thinking…”I don’t have time to do that many steps!” Well if you just walk 10 minutes at a time throughout the day, you’ll be surprised at how quickly it adds up. We all have breaks at work, whether it’s a coffee or full lunch break. Take this time to walk to the nearest coffee shop or lunch place. Better yet, bring your own food and walk around work first, then eat right before you have to go back.
Wake up a few minutes earlier and get some steps in before you go to work.
Park further from the entrance of the store you need to go to.
Walk for 10-30 minutes instead of watching that Netflix show.
Ask a friend to join you.
Take a pet for a walk.
Hit the treadmill and walk at a minimum of 3.0 mph for a quick session.
Walk around the mall.
Walk around your neighborhood.
Start a morning/evening walking group.
There are endless ways you can get extra steps in. And I can guarantee you will see results if you make this a daily habit.
I personally will walk for an hour at a time in the early morning as my form of cardio for the day because it is low-impact, very manageable and I don’t have to worry about injuries or not being able to go as far as I would prefer.
Depending on your age, height and weight…you could be burning the average 100 calories per mile.
Remember in the big picture, end of the day you need to be in a caloric deficit if you want to lose fat. So utilize walking to help create this deficit and DON’T overeat and you’ll be on your way to the easiest form of FAT LOSS.
