Running to Weight Loss

Running has been proven to be a good way to lose weight. Even if you do not have a lot of weight to lose or you have not exercised in a long time, running can be beneficial to your overall health. Many people begin their exercise program by walking, and then work their way up to a running program. There are a few things you should do before starting a running routine, but they will help you reach your weight loss goals.

Before beginning any weight loss program, it is important to talk to your physician. A routine check-up lets you know what your body can handle and if there are any health factors that you should take into account. The second step to preparing for a running program is to buy a good pair of running shoes. Your running shoes can help you feel comfortable and offer stability while you're on the pavement or treadmill. If you don't have good shoes, they can hurt your efforts by making your feet uncomfortable and possibly causing injuries.

Once you have checked with your doctor and bought a good pair of running shoes, you're ready to lose weight. Running is considered to be the most effective form of exercise because it increases your heart rate and offers an intense workout for your muscles. To lose weight, your heart rate must be high for an extended period of time to burn the most calories. Once you have worked your way up to a full running routine, you should run five times a week for at least one hour to maximize your weight loss potential.

The time it will take you to lose weight will be different from the next person and depends on your determination and diet. If you do not eat healthy, then it will take more time to lose weight.
