I know a lot of individual’s would rather run than walk because it is quicker, but if you walk a very good pace, you can burn a great deal of calories. If you were to walk between 45-60 minutes you can burn over 300 calories and you will not have all that jarring going on that you would encounter with running/jogging. Remember, it takes 3500 calories to burn one pound of fat, so walking and watching your food could get you to this result every week.
If you are an all of nothing type of person, I still recommend starting off at a decent amount of time, but don’t over do it because you may burn yourself out. Always practice moderation and when you are getting some great results, then you can increase the duration and intensity.
