Below is your weekly walking schedule and meal plan!

TAGS:

To lose weight we should be taking 10,000 steps a day and by making the effort to walk more your body can use up these extra calories – no trouble! Add to that a calorie-busting, low carb eating plan and you’ll soon see the pounds drop off.

On this plan you’ll be eating around 350 calories for breakfast, another 400 for lunch and 600 for dinner, which you should eat no later than 7pm plus a 100 calorie snack.

Walking tips:

  • Walk so the ball of your foot hits the floor first and keep your shoulders rolled back, arms and hands loose.
  • Wear loose comfortable clothing and as you build up pace, use your arms to power you along.
  • You’ll use 50% more energy by walking on an uneven surface and to monitor how fast you’re moving count the number of steps you take in a minute and divide by 30. So, if you take 120 steps in a minute you’re walking at 4 miles per hour.
