Step-by-Step Way to Shed Pounds
Get ready to take the long way home. When you're walking somewhere, it's only natural to want to take shortcuts. However, it's those added steps that will total up to more calories burned. Instead of hurrying to your destination, take some time to get extra physical activity. If a straight line is the quickest way home, take the long winding roads. Those extra steps on a regular basis will go a long way in getting you closer to your weight loss goal. It's important to remember that each step is in the right direction. Study after study has found the benefits of walking are far reaching. If you're one of those people who have a hard time getting motivated to exercise, walking is a physical activity that you can do anytime and anywhere -- and it won't cost you thing. Walking can contribute to weight loss and help you lose those extra pounds you've wanted to shed. It helps lower blood pressure. By just walking a half hour a day, you can lower your risk of heart disease up to 40 percent, while also lowering your risk of stroke.
