Most of us also know that walking is one of the simplest exercises for weight loss and health. But what many of us might not realize is that we may not be getting the most effective results on our walking efforts. By making simple adjustments, walking can become an impactful part of your weight loss program. A minimum of 30 minutes of sustained physical activity daily is recommended by most experts. This is a great place to start, however it may not give you long term weight loss success. It may initially cause some welcome and valuable weight loss, however sustained weight loss results will probably not happen without additional exertion. That being said, participating in physical activity for a sustained 30 minutes a day WILL result in better health, a greater energy levels and well-being, as well as produce SOME weight loss. However, anyone serious about their weight loss will probably not create the sustained, permanent weight loss they seek with only 30 minutes a day. To truly get long term, sustained results, do 45 or 60 of walking a day. It can be difficult to include walking for an hour a day, six or seven days a week into you schedule. However, simply increasing your exercise time to 45 or 60 minutes 2-3 times a week will still improve your weight loss over just keeping all your walks at 30 minutes. To speed up your weight loss, try increasing your walking speed on the days you do not walk more than 30 minutes. This will also improve the conditioning benefits to your body because the increased speed works your body differently than the slower paced walks. Remember to build up to higher levels exertion to reduce risk of injury. You may also want to consider adding resistance training, such as with free weights or exercise apparatus, to your weight loss program. You will build muscle tissue and burn more calories throughout the day, even when resting. An additional benefit of resistance training is that it will improve your overall fitness level by strengthening muscle groups you don't use when walking. But - you ask - isn't running a better way to get fit and lose weight? Consider this: A beginner walker is less likely to experience injury during and after exercising than a beginner runner. Certainly, if you train to the point where you can run certain distances in certain times (for example, as part of marathon training), you will almost certainly experience weight loss. However, when done correctly, walking can get you as fit as running with a great deal less danger of injury, especially if you currently lead a fairly sedentary lifestyle. Something else to consider is that in the beginning of any exercise program, whether for weight loss or physical fitness, extreme demands on your body may decrease your physical, mental, and

Another benefit of choosing a walking program is that you can begin without any special equipment or preparation, and no one needs to know that the shopping trip to the mall was actually your secret walk for the day. There's an old saying that the journey of a thousand miles begins with one step...so does a successful diet program.
