Walk for Weight Loss!

Weight Loss
Morning walk is the best exercise for your body, mind and spirit. It rejuvenates and revitalizes the body's cells, releasing muscular tension and relishing our energy levels. Walking decreases stress hormones, helps elevate the mood and increase the sense of well being. This simple exercise supplies you with the much needed fresh oxygen required for the many bodily functions including the working of lungs.

Morning walk also helps to lose weight. It burns calories, increases the metabolism of the body & strengthens joints and bones. Muscles of the limbs are toned up as they get an extra workout in walking include the entire back of the leg, shoulders, calves, hamstrings, and gluteus. Walking four times a week, 35 - 45 minutes each time, the average person can lose 15-18 pounds in a year with no change in diet.


Walking can help you trim fat as well as tone your muscles. It also helps to control your appetite. Walking is a form of low-impact exercise, which puts less strain on bones and tissues and prevents dangers associated with other types of exercise. A regular walk with a balanced diet can give good results in weight loss.

Also, walking reduces blood pressure and the risk of stroke, type-2 diabetes & cancer, reduces cholesterol, improves blood circulation and treats insomnia. It boosts the immune system, improves brain power & gives mental clarity. It works to build fitness, slimness and cardiovascular health.


Morning walk is perhaps the most overlooked form of exercise because it looks easy! And for the same reason, most of us prefer to sign up for expensive gyms or aerobics classes. Walking costs nothing, requires no partner or expensive gadgets, and would burn nearly the same calories as jogging does! The most important thing is to do it regularly. Walking as exercise will restore your peace of mind, and control your appetite. It is better than any weight loss pills invented by mankind!
