Walking to lose weight is not very realistic, but walking will allow you to maintain a stable weight (that’s already not bad), to lower your blood pressure and your bad cholesterol level, to reduce the rate glucose, reduce your stress and even improve your mood.
The best way to walk is still ours! Your next small slimming step is to find in each of your days not an hour, not 45 minutes but only half an hour to walk. To lose weight, you have to burn calories, so spend yourself on a daily basis.
Anyone can do it, except people with severe disabilities.
Indeed, when we think about it, we realize that walking is one of the human capacities best “shared” on the planet. She is almost vital and ranks immediately after drinking, eating, breathing and sleeping.
So because we can do it, we are going to do it !
Healthy walking and forced walking
We walk as soon as we leave our bed in the morning. But of course the short trips (forced walking) between the kitchen and the living room in the family home or the return trips between your workstation and the toilets in the office should not be part of your half-hour daily walk. No more than your journeys on the shelves of supermarkets…
EHow about going out for a little walk as soon as you feel like snacking? It’s a radical but oh so effective way to get rid of this desire and you’ll kill two birds with one stone! On the one hand you will spend calories, and on the other, you will not absorb any!

However, it will count towards your physical activity quota if:
- You go buy your bottle mineral water at the grocery store by walking rather than driving;
- You climb four floors by the stairs instead of taking the elevator;
- You decide to taking out the trash every day rather than twice a week,
- You get used to get up from your chair and walk in circles as soon as you receive a call on your mobile.
- This list is obviously not exhaustive…
What will make the difference are the new opportunities you seize to move more… What we call “healthy walking” as opposed to forced walking.
Walking to lose weight: 2 absolute weapons
Now, if you want to raise an even more ambitious challenge, here are two absolute weapons to walk every day in the fresh air and without practically realizing it. But beware, they require long-term commitments on your part.
1. Adopt a four-legged friend
In addition to the pleasure derived from the company of a dog, taking care of it and take him for a walk every day are absolute guarantees of physical expenditure.
2. Take up gardening
If this is impossible or if it seems too restrictive, gardening – in particular the fact of take care of a vegetable garden or a flower garden – is an insurance to walk every day. You will be surprised how many steps you will take each day if you decide to plant lettuces or tulips.
In conclusion, if you don’t have time to walk, it’s actually quite easy to find it. And if you don’t have opportunities to do so, just create them.
As you know, your health and your figure are priorities.
