Walking is a fantastic way to reduce excess fat we all have built up over time. Here are some useful tips to make walking burn fat faster.
Doing weight bearing exercise in addition to walking burns through almost twice the fat just walking does. Add some squats or lunges to put the extra pressure on the thighs, hips and butt. You can do this while you walk, or any time you have the chance. Make sure you don’t do it more than every other day, this gives the muscles time to recover, and get ready to burn more fat.
While you walk, add some extra bursts. If you put on some extra speed for a few seconds, you can burn fat even faster. Just put on some speed for a few seconds (or longer) then walk normally until you get your breath back, then do it again. This will certainly kick up your metabolism and help you burn fat, even when not walking.
You need at least 1200 calories a day to keep your body working properly. Having too much will make you gain weight, but having too little will do the same. Unfortunately, eating too little will make you gain weight. Your body expects a certain number of calories each day to maintain itself. If it gets too much, it stores it because it doesn’t know what else to do with it. If it gets too little, it stores it because it thinks it needs to save it for emergencies. Your body doesn’t understand that we can just run to the store and get food. That’s why it stores the fat away until we need it.
Drinking plenty of water is a great fat loss tip, too. I know, it seems if you drink more water, you will weight more, and retain more water. Water also flushes the impurities out of your system so your body doesn’t decide to store them since it doesn’t know what else to do with them.
In summary, exercise your muscles, add some intensity, eat plenty of food, and drink plenty of water and you are on your way to rapid fat loss journey.
