Brisk walking is recommended to increase calorie burning. But how much should you walk every day to lose weight?
How much do you have to walk each day to lose weight?
A brisk walk of 30 to 90 minutes most days of the week should be a goal for losing weight. You can walk more some days and less on others, but the total time you walk each week should be at least 180 minutes (3 hours).
You should go with moderate intensity, equivalent to 60 to 70 percent of your maximum heart rate. Find your maximum heart rate by subtracting age from 220 (220 age). To measure your heart rate, you can use a simple heart rate monitor.
If it is too demanding to walk for more extended periods, you can divide it into smaller periods of 10 minutes. But remember that you burn more fat when you walk at a fast pace for 30 minutes or more.
