Losing weight with walking: how do you do that

30 November 2022|Lifestyle, Training

Taking a little walk every day is healthy. And it can also help with weight loss. But how long and how often should you walk to lose weight? In this article, we'll tell you everything about it.

Weight loss in a nutshell

Every day, your body burns calories to function and move, and it receives new calories by eating. If you eat fewer calories than you burn, your body starts burning fat (and muscles) to get energy.

If you want to lose weight, you'll need to create a calorie deficit. This means you consume fewer calories in a day than you burn. You can do this by eating healthier, exercising more, or a combination of both.

Walking and weight loss

Walking is healthy. Research shows that people who take more than 8,000 steps a day are healthier than those who don't (1).

But is walking also good for weight loss? Absolutely! With an hour of walking, you burn about 520 calories. If you do that daily (and don't eat more than your energy balance), you'll lose half a kilo per week.
