If you are thinking of venturing on a weight reduction mission but do not consider starving yourself on a crash diet of any significant value, nor are you interested in putting in any effort like swimming or aerobics, then walking is the best possible solution available. Walking is one of the easiest and most efficient ways to embark on your fitness program. Including a health and fitness program consisting of brisk walking is the ideal form of exercise that will not only help you with your weight loss program, but will also enable you to maintain an active and healthy lifestyle.

If you do not favor push-ups or abdominal crunches or do not have the time due to a busy work schedule, then it is better to take a brisk walk. It is recommended to walk early in the morning since the air in the early morning is not only fresh but also void of any pollution. Also, after a good night sleep, your body is relaxed. All these factors together work to enhance your physical condition and promote mental health. In other words, it encourages the overall development and improvement of your body.

Although, it may take some months, before the results are visible but you will certainly feel more active and charged. It will provide a boost to your energy levels and your body metabolism. This will enable you to lose weight faster. Here are a few tips on walking that can be easily accommodated into your daily exercise regime:

1. Before starting any exercise program, you need to make sure that you will stick to it on a daily basis. Only will then any fitness program be of any help in reducing your weight.

2. Another important criterion for walking to be effective in order to lose weight is that firstly, you need a leveled ground to walk on and a good pair of shoes. It is very important that the shoes be comfortable while walking.

3. If brisk walking is not possible then slow walking is also as effective. You can also lose those extra inches and burn the unwanted calories by slow walking. Due to gravity, slow walking makes your body drag. This dragging in turn enables your body to lose weight.
