Running Will Burn Fat

By Patricia ZelmEmmart CHHC, AADP

Running is one of the best ways to lose weight, but it doesn’t mean it’s the only way. Walking is a good way to start a weight loss program, but for quicker results jogging or running is a good option. Before you begin each session, stretch out your muscles to avoid injury to yourself. If you are new to running, it’s important to start out slowly and gradually increase over time.

Start out by power walking then, increase to a jog. When you are ready, increase your pace to a run for about 10 minutes at first. With each session you can add more time and distance to your running. The faster your pace the less time and distance you will physically be able to go.
