Common Questions and Answers about What's better for losing weight running or walking


Avatar f tn OK girls do any of you have plans set up already on what you are going to do to lose weight? Like workouts or special diets, or pills? Any tricks that have worked for you any ideas or suggestions? I need to lose all the weight I gained.
Avatar f tn and the problem is i know running and walking are effective in raising the metabolism but due to my schedule i cant find time for it ! but really thanks for the advice... will try to exercise atleast !
1519805 tn?1291058650 I'm 18 yrs old & I've always been a chubby chick but my weight is increasing ridicioulsly. I'm really up for losing weight but its just so hard for me I've tried so many things & don't really see results so I give up. I want to go to a dietician or a fat camp I don't care I jus want to loose weight. Please help me!
699217 tn?1323438700 I start eating less, but what I do eat is not as good for me.. anyway, what works for me is walking (and jogging but walking is better). I walk/jog about 4-5 miles per day (Ive incorporated it into my commute to work each day). Just walking though is GREAT exercise. And if you find a nice place to walk, it can be fun too... and very therapeutic.. its the only time in my whole day that is MY time. I walk/jog early in the morning, right around sunrise.
Avatar f tn Just wondering if it's better to do a few short but high intensse work outs or one loooong not so high work out? Jumping rope 3-5 times for 3 (trying for 5 mins but right now only at 3) minutes each and a very high intensity with rest in-between or long 45-60 min easyer bike ride? I do try to do a bit of each but just wondering what's better for loosing weight fast.
Avatar f tn -running or even fast walking (NO WALKING) for about 30min each day is really helpful (fast walking actually burns alot more calories than running and works you out more) With running or fast walking, make sure you move your arms alot. -50-100squats each day will definitely tone your legs and hips -Horizontal bicycle or situps workout your stomach (I personally find that horizontal bicycles work me out more than situps) Sooo yuup!!
Avatar f tn Running fast is better for performance, running far is better for endurance. Just do what you like, both are good exercise, but running fast gets the work done more quickly if time is a factor. For me, I always liked running when I was still able to run and had no desire to get it over with too quickly, but for performance training, sprinting will make you stronger and more athletic overall.
Avatar f tn Does walking and running help reduce weight loss.
Avatar f tn Start a vegan diet and jump rope for quickest slimming without building large muscles. Any weightbearing exercise, be it walking, running, elliptical, vigorous dancing, running up and down stairs, whatever, can burn calories and tone. Other good exercises include Pilates, yoga, lifting weights, karate, biking ... many choices. Just MOVE. Sweating itself is not the object, although exercise may lead to sweating.
Avatar n tn t last, whereas losing weight slowly by eating better and exercising more takes time but will last. Given that your fiance appears to love you the way you are or you wouldn't be getting married, what's the hurry? Losing weight slowly will keep it off because you'll have permanently changed your life and your health. Losing fast, yeah, there are ways to do that, but then you'll go back to whatever got you where you are.
Avatar f tn I been running for a month now ... slowly ... building it up from ! mile in 30 min three times a week to 2 miles in 40 mins (yep I know its slow but I am improving) twice a day five day a week... Cut all Alchol drinks out and changed mu diet to Friut , rice and choc only one a week ... do not seem to have notice a difference in my size... anyboby any ideas where I am going wrong ?
1494585 tn?1288728536 you should start off with walking at least 30 minutes a day for exercise if your not used to exercising. also exercise isn't enough to lose weight, you have to making better eating choices, i know its hard i myself am trying to lose weight and have been eating healthier chocies and it hasn't even been 2 weeks yet and i'm starting to notice a difference already, i am still trying to find the motivation to get my self up and exercising at least 30 minutes a day.
Avatar n tn What's the best workout for me?? I'm 15 years old and weight 83kg. My goal is to lose weight to goto 70kg by new year! Hope I get there but I need to know what workouts I need to do and what I need to eat ?
Avatar f tn Hey yall, I've lost about 10 pounds in 2 days and I'm 5 weeks pregnant. I haven't been eating much because I'm so worried about what's good and bad for the baby. I have awful anxiety and depression so I over think and worry about everything . I haven't been taking my anxiety medicine due to risks of harming the baby and I think that's why I can't eat and am losing weight so fast. Is this dangerous or will it get better with time ?
Avatar f tn If you are walking 3 to 6 miles per day solely for the purpose of losing weight, consider cutting back to about 2 to 3 miles per day. That will be enough to maintain health without making your body think that it needs to operate at maximum energy efficiency. If you need to walk that much for other reasons, then do what you need to do, but change the kind of food you eat. No sugar, no junk food, no soda pop, and cook your own meals from groceries.
Avatar n tn I want to loos e my weight specially my billy alot of fats (must burn this fats ) without any exercise cause iam asmatiks
Avatar n tn s keeping you from losing weight. By eating regular meals, you can better incorporate a mix of vegetables, protein, whole grains and healthy fats into your diet. Snacking, typically, ends up being fruit, candy bars, crackers, sandwiches, chips and all the things that aren't so good for you and tend to make you, either, gain or hold onto weight.
542730 tn?1234673838 thank u. i havent had this weight on for a long period of time. maybe a year. so i'm hoping if i stick to what i plan on doing i hope i can lose it before then. as sad as it sounds, yes i dislike all veggies but i think i might force myself to eat them. i havent tried them in a long time so i'm hoping i will like them this time. :) thank u again!
Avatar f tn They both hurt like all get out but with vahinal at least you walk out the same day if you want to unless you need to stay for tests or something. With c section you're in the hospital for up to a week or more sometimes. It takes a lot longer to heal and it's really hard to train those muscles back to how they used to be. Unless my baby is suffering and I need a c section I won't do it. It's too dangerous otherwise.
1102792 tn?1285925260 37 yr old man last week I decided to go jogging as part of my weight loss plan, I had been cycling and playing table tennis for a while now.
768251 tn?1256734583 Also, I am walking at a rate of 10 minutes per hour for 10000 steps per day or more, should I walk for a longer period of time and less frequently????
Avatar f tn I often run about 1-2 miles a day on the tread mill but I find myself with anal pain and scrotom pain that disappears if I stop running for a week or so and just walk. Has anyone ever experienced this?
