Walking Helps Peel Off Pounds & Helps Heart

Posted Dec 18 2008 7:34pm

Researchers in Belfast, Ireland found that sedentary adults who took a brisl half-hour walk a mere three days a week not only lost weight, but they also experienced improved fitness and cardiovascular benefits.

Of course, the people who walked five days a week received even greater benefits.

Thanks to MedPageToday.com's senior writer Judity Groch for alerting us to this exciting study, which appeared in the Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health.

As a huge walker myself, I'm always thrilled when studies show its many wonders. So folks, please get off your butt and start walking now!
