Walking is a not only a great exercise, it also enables us to workout at a steady and consistent pace, which allows us to burn fat effectively. To burn fat we need the body to be permanently in fat-burning mode during the whole exercise, walking is a constant and gradual activity so it achieves fat-burning mode very effectively even if the person lacks some fitness.
The great thing about walking to lose weight is that it can be made fun. The pet dog can be taken to the local park so he can enjoy the walk too. Friends can join in the walk where you can chat and catch up on the latest chat. Walking can also be achieved when shopping; a good stroll around shops for a few hours can still help burn off some fat stores. Window-shopping is good to support continuous movement in order to support fat burning.
