Benefits of Walking

Walking can be a great first step on your path to wellness and weight management.  As you know, about 60% of Americans are overweight or obese.  Obesity has been linked to and is often a cause of cancer, heart disease and diabetes to name a few.  So, let's get you moving.  Exercise has so many benefits to your health I can't even count them all, so let's just take the Nike slogan and apply it and "Just Do It".

During the initial phases of my weight loss program I have patients walk for 30 minutes per day.  The best time of day to exercise is first thing in the morning.  Usually, it will make you feel better.

Most people, I find, need more vigorous exercise than walking, so I recommend gradually increasing the intensity of your exercise.
