We are talking weight loss by walking today, ladies. Get ready to burn that fat with a great cardio workout for women.

Maybe you aren’t a lift weights high-intensity full throttle workout type of girl. That’s ok, you can lose weight by walking, starting today.

I realize there are many different reasons you might want to choose to walk to lose weight. Perhaps you have a group of women you like to walk with, or you just enjoy being outside.

Walking for weight loss can be a successful method for weight loss when you have a plan. Varying speeds of walking is a great way to burn more calories.

Have a great, healthy nutrition plan in place…it takes effort in the kitchen also. Start by adding a protein shake such as this one to your diet daily – will help with protein AND vegetables!

Comfortable walk – walking moderately fast, but can still carry on a conversation.

Fast walk – as fast of a walk as you can handle, you could talk if needed, but it is not easy to carry on a conversation.
