You can walk and this is one of the simplest ways to tone up yourself, increase your metabolism gradually and thus losing weight. Easy and calm exercises like walking are ideal for boosting up your metabolism. With such an exercise you can go on a gradual climb without putting too much pressure on your body and brain. The best reason for starting off with such light exercises is that a shift from a sedentary lifestyle to light exercises is a bit easy and ensures that you do not leave your weight loss training midway.
As you increase the time and amount of such light physical exercises, your body begins to release “feel good” chemicals and thus you start feeling light, active, energetic and happy. That’s one advantage you will get as a bonus. One fact to remember here is that several shorter walks are better than a single long one for weight loss by obese and out of shape people, even if it’s the same distance.
While walking, we slowly fire up muscles in the lower part of our body and this continues even after we stop walking and this continued metabolic activity burns excess fats even during the rest time. Walking is best for those who are not in a shape to carry out hard-core exercises as it keeps on conditioning our body and with the passage of time, our body becomes toned and geared up for more rigorous exercises.
