Today's Walk

It was a beautiful day for a 5 mile walk at the High Bridge Trail. 

Coincidentally, I happened to walk about 10,000 steps. 

As you know, when it all comes down to it, fat loss is about maintaining a calorie deficit which you achieve by consistently expending more calories than you consume. The great benefit of walking is that it allows you to tip the calories part of the equation but without the eventual side effects that can come from doing higher volumes of more strenuous cardio. For all intents and purposes, you can literally walk as much or as little as you want and still get that extra calorie expenditure but without running into issues with systematic stress, joint and tendon issues, or excessive appetite stimulation that often accompanies activities like running. Just by adding around 5,000 steps to your daily step count, this equals about 2 pounds of fat loss per month, which is not insignificant at all especially when you add it up over the course of several months. Not only can you burn a significant number of calories just through walking alone, walking is something you're already doing to some extent each and every day. 

Just adding some details to my previous videos!

Have a wonderful day!
