Walking For Weight Loss: Everything You Need To Know

In theory, if you eat less and move more you will lose weight. If you walk 5 miles a day - you can burn 3500 calories a week - that's the same as one pound of body fat.

In practice there are so many factors that affect how you lose weight such as your age and metabolism but walking does help.

Walking means you can lose weight without dieting but you do need to make sure you don't replace the calories you burn by eating extra treats!

Don't jump into walking 5 miles a day from Day 1. Build up to it. Start with 2 miles first or try the Fat Buster Walking Challenge.

Walking More Is One Of The Most Effective Weight Loss Tips

That's backed up by research - by the American Diabetes Association.

How Many Steps To Lose Weight

10,000 steps a day is a good target - that's about 4 to 5 miles but set a target you can achieve - regular walking is important.

As you get fitter make your walks more challenging - add hills or try walking intervals at different paces.
