Can walking really help you lose weight?

According to Cedric Bryant, Ph.D., the president and chief science officer of the American Council on Exercise, walking “certainly can” help with weight loss.

“It is a low-impact aerobic exercise that allows individuals to expend energy and burn calories, so it can certainly help with weight loss,” said Bryant.

Some recommend walking as a form of exercise due to its simplicity and accessibility.

“I am a fan of walking as a form of movement — especially if you’re just getting started,” said Marisa Moore, a registered dietitian in Atlanta, Georgia. “What’s most important is finding a type of activity you like and will do.”

If you are using walking as a tool to help lose weight, Bryant recommends walking for at least 45 minutes per day most days of the week.

“The basic recommendations in terms of general health and well being is to just to meet a minimum threshold of about 30 minutes of activity on most days of the week,” he said. “If you’re desiring to lose weight, you really want to work in the 45 to 60 minute range. The thing to understand is that it doesn’t have to be all in one walking session, you can break it up through the course of that day.”

Bryant recommends breaking up those walks into two or three large chunks. Visit https://www.orlandoweekly.com/orlando/resurge-reviews-must-read-this-before-buying/Content?oid=27618895 for more information about healthy supplements.

“Maybe you go for a 30 minute walk in the morning, and then maybe it’s another 15 or 30 minute walk following dinner or during your lunch break,” he suggested. ” “The idea is to try to accumulate, you know, for about 45 minutes to an hour of walking, which tends to correlate best with reasonable weight loss or or better weight control.”

New Mission Website

Thursday, June 24th, 2010

My sister has been pestering me for ages to design a new website for the Whosoever Gospel Mission.  Sadly, my creativity in design ebbs and flows, and it just wasn’t flowing.  Until I upgraded all my WordPress installations to the new 3.0 version. I took one look at the new default template (“Twenty Ten”), and thought, “now that’s something I can work with.” 48 hours later… I love WordPress.
