Can Walking Help Control Weight

Aug 17, 2007
Being couch potatoes is the latest trend of the day. You will find little children instead of playing baseball take more interest in watching Cartoon channels. The recent survey also shows that the number of heart attacks have intensely increased for the past. What is really shocking is that the age group to be beaten by strokes is between 25 and 35. Why?

The very simple answer is their lifestyle. Fast food, sleepless nights, workloads, overtimes and desktop job patterns. In a nutshell it is your physical inactivity and lots of mental stress that brings you down to this dangerous situation.

Walking: the simple solution

Hey everything is fine with your tight schedule. It is also true that at the end of the day you are bound to bother about your pennies. But that cannot be at the risk of your life. Can't you at least go for a half an hour walk daily? Believe me, it works. How?

* Doctors suggest that walking is more than a warm-up exercise. It allows sufficient amount of oxygen to your body and directly leads to the burning of calories without ant external means.

* Most important of all walking bears no tangential expenses. You can carry it out at a particular time of the day. The best hour is the morning but there is no hard and fast rule. Many prefer the evening schedule.

* Walking is the fitness booster. Thus when you pick up gym sessions after walking, you can easily carry out those higher degree calorie burners.

* Walking gives stability to the body and dieticians often suggest that instead of starving walk for an hour that helps more to put down permanent weight.

Walking and fitness

Where lays the close relation between walking and fitness of an obese person? The calculation is very simple. An overweight person easily loses energy and requires excess amount of fuel to get recharged. In this regard it is oxygen the person is in a crisis of.

The same man cannot perform rigorous exercises and aerobics to shed off the weight he has gained over the years. Walking thus can help him to come to that position of fitness level where he has that amount of oxygen within to burn up the excess calories.

Precisely apart from these healing aids, walking is a pleasant experience to meet with different types of people and make friends in and around the jogger's park. Start walking from today itself and experience the best moments of life.
