WALKING FOR FAT LOSS
QUESTION: What is your opinion on walking for weight loss?
A: Walking is a great exercise, at the age of 65 my grandmother started to walk 10 kilometers a day. Now she is 88, and we still don’t know where she is. In all seriousness, I think walking is most suited for the obese, as it is low impact and allows them to increase their caloric output without stressing the adrenals. For a fit person, it is a leisurely activity, certainly not a way to improve body composition rapidly.
