Walking for weight loss with Lucy Wyndham-Read

In her book Walk off the weight, Lucy Wyndham-Read shows us how to use walking for weight loss.  With 5 years in the Brittish Army and 20 years in fitness, Lucy has helped thousands of men and women lose weight and stay in shape.  In this book, she sets up a daily program for walking for weight loss with walking plans and menus to ensure you're eating right.

Benefits of walking

Health – Walking strengthens your heart and reduces cholesterol.  It helps strengthen your bones.  It prevents obesity and lifts depression.
Fitness – Walking helps make you faster and stronger and gives you more stamina.  You'll improve your flexibility and balance.
Weight – Walking for weight loss works because you are burning more calories both during and after the walk.
– Aging – Walking helps promote human growth hormone (HGH), which begins declining after age 20.

Measure it & snap it

Measurements – Lucy recommends you measure your waist, bottom, thighs and arms so you can see your progress.
What to expect – As you go, you'll notice you are dropping dress sizes and feeling stronger and more energetic.
Commitment – Before you start, make the commitment to make it through the first seven days.  This will drive you through the 21 days.
