The easiest and most natural way to get in shape is walking. Many people walk every day but still do not get the results they are looking for. What is the secret behind lose weight walking before and after?
Walking to lose weight in the mornings:
To get your body into the fat-burning mode that it needs to lose weight you should do your walking first thing in the morning on an empty stomach. Do not drink or eat anything. This raises your metabolism at the beginning of the day before you add any calories. Your body will start burning stored fat right away.
Walking before and after:
Walking is a great and simple exercise that requires no special equipment and just about everyone can do it. The one thing you will need for walking on a consistent basis is a good pair of comfortable and supportive walking shoes.
Walking is one of the best exercises for weight loss. If you are just starting out and this a bit of a stretch, try to walk at least 3 days a week for 30 minutes. Also to aiding in weight loss, walking is also helpful in reducing cholesterol, lowering your diabetes and helps to lift your mood.
You burn roughly the same amount of calories per mile whether you walk it or run it. So the faster you walk for your 30 minutes a day the more calories you will burn. If you walk before breakfast you actually burn as much as calories as you do after eating.

An effective walking program is a sound way to warm up
Start your warm up with a walk that gradually increases its intensity and pace. Concentrate on maintain good posture and form.
Break into a slow jogging pace when you feel loose and try to run on your forefoot. Landing on the balls of your feet is much less jarring than the more common heel strike.
You can add some backwards jogging if you like. This gets you up on the balls of your feet and adds a little different feel to the warm up.
Follow this walking rate,
Slow – normal walking speed that takes little effort and breathing is close to normal.
Moderate – walking at a faster speed with some effort and breathing becomes hard.
Fast – walking at a fast rate of speed with a lot of effort and breathing becomes difficult.
Try to walk for an hour every day but start out slow if you are just beginning. Do walking you can because any walking is better than not walking at all. You will get a better result by walking before and after.
