It’s not just physical exercise and the health benefits that will inevitably follow a regular walking regime, you will also just as inevitably shed some weight. On the Good Housekeeping site they talk about the weight loss benefits of regular exercise. Once again, you don’t have to see this as high impact training, not at all!
Walking is the best exercise for health and weight loss simply because it is easy to do and it’s an all over workout. As long as you do something daily and stick to it the benefits in weight and health will follow.
