Brisk walking helps you get rid of fat quickly. With every fast-paced walk of around 1.5 km, you burn 90 to 100 calories. Walking is considered a moderate-intensity aerobic exercise, particularly effective for abdominal fat. It also helps you retain body muscles that are otherwise lost in weight control regimens. In consequence of this, our metabolic rate drops less and fat becomes easier to shed. But you will have to supplement your exercise plan with a healthy weight loss diet. Walk around 30 minutes a day and see the change in your weight in the first few weeks. Basically, a total of 500 calories a day should be cut down both by diet and exercises. The healthy route to weight loss is to put off 500 g to 1 kg a week, meaning you should lose 10 kilos in about 2.5 to 3 months.
