Walking Weight Loss Technique
You can enhance your weight loss results through walking if you pay attention to your posture while walking. Following these simple steps, I bet you can improve your results:
1. Stand tall with your eyes looking straight forward, keeping your chin parallel to the ground and your shoulders back and straight and your abdominal muscles tucked in.
2. The head should be level straight. If the head is tilted forward then excess strain hits the neck and shoulders leading to undue fatigue. If you need to watch your step closely then lower your eyes, not your whole head.
3. Your arms should swing naturally and should bent at an angle 90 degree with elbow, not drawn up towards the ears. Allow your arms to pump back and forth (like tuning fork:-) along with your stride. Bending the arms can also help you to burn 5-10% more calories. Additionally, keeping the arms bent can immediately help you to pick up your pace for longer periods of time.
4. Keep focussing on taking natural steps and try to aim for speed in your stride rather than length.
5. Speed and efficiency in walking are generated by hip flexibility. If you can increase your hip flexibility, you will naturally develop a slightly longer stride.
6. Roll through your foot with each step, placing your heel down first and pushing off with the ball of your foot.
Thomas Jefferson once said "The sovereign invigorator of the body is exercise, and of all the exercises walking is the best."

Running Weight Loss

Run Run and Simply Run!! running weight loss
Yes, Running has been regarded as one of the right way to burn fat. The main theme on which running works is just like that of weight loss, that is, "doing more but getting less" (see more on Weight Loss). So if you are running for weight loss, then you will lose weight only when you burn more calories than that you consume. Off the several vigorous exercises out there running is an extremely effient way to burn those extra bit of pounds. A person weighing 150-pound can burn approximately 100 calories per mile when running. So why say I won't Run?
Here are some of the tips on running that you might wanna look into:

1.Healthy Diet
Yeah running can help you to burn extra fat. But running combined with healthy balanced diet can give you better result. Try choosing foods that are less in calories. If you want high-calorie foods, then smaller portions of high-fat and high-calorie foods is OK (see more on Weight Loss Diet). Also try to eat more whole grains, fruits, and vegetables (see more on Fruits and Vegetables) and fiber-rich foods (see more on Fiber Weight Loss).
healthy weight loss dietOff the several common mistakes that runners do, one is they overcompensate for the calories burned by running with extra calories consumed from more food and beverages. Some of them find that they are gaining weight despite their exercise. So it would be great if you can keep an eye on what you are eating. You can do this by writing a journal for a few weeks. By doing this, you can see where your diet needs an improvement. The record can also keep you on track because you will think thrice (hehe) before putting that slice of Pizza in your mouth.

2. Run on a regular basis
Hard work pays off. Yes, it also comes true in case of Weight Loss. Running surely can help you lose weight but running once a week is not a good thing if you are trying to lose weight. If you find it that hard then run 3-4 times a week. Don't forget that it's always better to get some activity everyday.

3. Dieting and exercise running for weight loss
It's not a good idea to increase your exercise and go on a crash diet at the same time. If you are a runner, you need more calorie (energy) and nutrients. So you if you try to restrict what you're eating you are much more likely to get ill or injured at the same time.
Dieting will reduce your fat, muscles and water content which isn't a good thing if you're trying to lose weight. Whereas running will reduce your fat but also increase the amount of lean muscle. Further, running will improve your muscle tone, which will contribute to an improved appearance.
Dieting can be difficult to sustain, because it requires you constantly to restrict the foods that you want. Sometimes, the constraints imposed by diets are unhealthy, preventing you from eating a good variety of healthy foods.
