Why run when you can walk.

The health and weight loss benefits of walking.

How many times do you see overweight people struggling on the side of the road running or jogging in the attempt to improve their health and fitness …not to mention the look of frustration and pain on there faces.

The fact is they will probably do this a couple of times and stop. Why? Because its just uncomfortable and not enjoyable and in a lot of cases, painful. It just does not have to be this way. This is when walking comes into its own as an excellent way of losing weight, gaining better health and enjoying a healthier life.

30 minutes of walking is all it takes and unlike jogging or running has a very low impact and stress on your knees, ankles, lower back, hips, etc. The great thing about walking is you can make it as easy or as hard as you want by simply upping your pace to hitting the hills to walking in the soft sand on the beach or hiking some bush tracks. The best thing about walking is you will most likely stick with it as it’s low impact on your body and simply … it’s enjoyable.

The best news is research has proven that the health benefits of walking combined with a clean healthy eating lifestyle are that you will lose weight, sleep better, have more energy, lessen the likelihood of diabetes along with a whole list of other lifestyle diseases … this list is endless.

So what are you waiting for? Get out in the great outdoors and enjoy the benefits a good walk can do for you.
