Walking is one of my favorite things to do and I have stressed on many people in the power of walking. This exercise routine does so much without a huge effort or strain and the results are very satisfying. Walking does more than helps you burn fat it also:
Helps fight colon cancer! A Washington school of medicine study found that any form of walking can lower your risk of colon cancer; brisk walking can lower the risk in women by 44%, walking also protects your vision as well. According to government researchers it lowers the risk of developing cataracts.Washington scientists say that walking three or more times a week makes us 32% likely to contract dementia.
Researcher Arthur Weltman, PH.D and other scientist have discovered a new way to burn more fat when walking. This method takes less time than the traditional walking routine which is 40-60 three to four times a week. It is called the Uva approach, two of the walks a week will be 45-60 minutes but at a comfortable pace and the other 3 will be only 20- 30 minutes and should be speedy but you should be able to hold a conversation without being too much out of breath.
This works because leisurely walks burn about 300 calories per hour: fast walks can burn 300 calories in as little as 30 minutes. The Uva not only helps you burn more calories it also boosts your fat-burning hormones by 80%. This workout is so smooth that you probably won’t even tell that you’ve been doing a high intensity workout. A high intensity exercise routine is excellent at burning the more fat and calories it increases a growth hormone called HGH that your body produces and this is what dramatically boosts your fat metabolism.
The after burn of this method is incredible! Even 48 hours after the workout your body is still working its way down from the walks. When doing exercises like this your metabolism is so hype up that it can take the body a long time to calm down to its normal state.
The UVa also reduces your appetite, a strenuous workout activates the anti- hunger hormones and you start to eat less without evening knowing it. Eating right will also make you lose weight quicker too! Here is a quick and healthy breakfast recipe; 2 Whole grain toast with honey,
3 to 4 strawberries
Scramble eggs use nonstick spray instead of butter.
Walking does amazing things to the body, so get up and get to walking pounds away and before you know it you’ll be back in your old jeans again! If you are looking for a great weight loss pill the Lemonade Diet delivers fast results while detoxifying your body.
