Day 6 on Juice Fasting: 3 Ways to Walk off Weight Faster

Today is Day 6. Oops I did it again! I slipped up while feeding my children during lunch time today. Meal time can be so challenging.  I need to remind myself, I am on a juice fast and I really need to find ways how to hold myself next time. 

Just a friendly reminder, have you had enough water today?


Brisk walking. This is my first workout after a long break. I'd never heard of Leslie Sansone before and I found her while browsing for new workouts on YouTube. Her coach style is easy to follow and what is important, the exercise don't stress the knee. The walking workout is quick and efficient for beginner like me. I am looking forward to walking at home everyday with Leslie Sansone Walking Workout. I really enjoy Leslie Sansone's easy going style and easy to follow workouts.


Brisk walking look easy that most of us do not bother to walk. But when it's done right, this simple workout can make a big difference to your health and to your weight. I want to share my reading today from the Daily Mail, How to walk your way to weight loss:

1. How much?

Health experts recommend that we should walk 10,000 steps a day (about five miles). You would probably need to tot up at least 16,000 steps a day to lose weight.

2. How often?

Beginners:
Monday to Saturday: Walk ten minutes at a moderate pace
Sunday: Walk slowly for 20 minutes

Intermediates:
Monday: Rest
Tuesday to Friday: Walk for 25 minutes at a moderate pace one day, 30 minutes the next
Saturday: Walk 20 minutes fast
Sunday: Walk 45 minutes at a moderate pace

Advanced:
Monday: Rest
Tuesday to Friday: Walk 45 minutes at a moderate pace one day and 50 minutes the next day
Saturday: Walk 50 minutes at a fast pace
Sunday: Walk 60 minutes at a moderate pace

3. Techniques 

  • You should master power-walking.
  • Stand tall with your arms by your sides and pull your navel towards your spine so that your core muscles are working. 
  • Focus your eyes five to six metres ahead and keep your shoulders relaxed. 
  • Bend your elbows at a 90-degree angle and cup your hands lightly, rather than clenching your fists. 
  • Leading with the heel, take a step forward with your right foot and move your arms in opposition (i.e. as your left arm moves forward, your right moves back). 
  • Transfer your weight through the heel of your right foot. 
  • Adding hills to your route will speed up calorie burning. 
  • Walking on softer surfaces, such as mud, sand or grass, also uses more energy than walking on concrete. Walking on cobblestones or rocky ground may have even more benefits. Physiologists at the Oregon Research Institute have found cobblestone walking lowers blood pressure and improves balance. The uneven surfaces may stimulate acupressure points on the soles of the feet, regulating blood pressure. Because it is challenging, it will also burn more calories. 
Walking is one of the most natural movements that we can do.What will you say, is walking enough to lose weight?

    1. Not really Tracy. I am not doing very good during the past 6 days and I am thinking about quitting right now. But then I think there's no food police here, so I just move on with the plan. Thanks for visiting. Looking forward to read your upcoming post.
