Walking or running to loose weight, is determined by the following formula.
Calories Burned Walking/Running) = Your Weight + the Distance You Walk/(Run).
In practical terms, a 180-pound person can see 100 calories burned walking a mile, but a 120-pound person sees only 65 calories burned walking a mile.
While your walking speed has little effect on your overall weight loss, you do burn a few more calories if you walk or run with a faster pace.
“The myth surrounding walking for exercise. Yep, most people think walking is a poor substitute for a high-impact workout, or that starting a walking routine to lose weight will never work.”
Hey, None of these myths are true, and you can start losing weight by walking if you know what you’re doing and where you’re going.
When it comes to exercise and losing weight, everyone is different because we all have different metabolisms, the rate at which our individual bodies burn energy through diet and exercise.
Some people can eat a whole cheesecake and not gain weight (me),
---- while others will put on inches after just one slice!
