Want to lose weight without gymming?
Lose your weight by walking properly.
Walking place and body weight play a major role in losing weight. If you are walking at a speed of 4 miles per hour, you’ll be able to lose 400 calories.
A pedometer can help you in losing weight.
A pedometer helps in controlling weight effectively and in a better way. Just wear it around the hip area and it will help in recording the number of steps you take.
How many steps do you need to walk to lose weight?
- One mile= 2000 steps and 100 calories burned
- 1 pound= 3500 calories
- Losing 1 pound in a week= 500 calories/day
- Walk 10,000 steps to lose 1 pound of weight!
This should be your walking style.
Keep your eyes 100 feet forward, tighten the abdomen, hold your chin up and squeeze your glutes. This should be your walking style if you are doing walking as exercise.
This is where pedometer comes into play!
How often should you walk?
When you have just started, make sure you walk 15-20 minutes per day and three days in a week. You can gradually increase it to 30-60 minutes per day.
Make sure you visit your doctor before you start doing walking as an exercise. Consult him to know whether you are fit for it or not.
