hahah, yeah walking definitely helps. the recommendation for walking off weight is to walk an hour a day for most days a week at a moderate pace. and most people walk about an hour a day anyway. thats why it's good to keep a busy schedule ;D. oh, and its proven that walking slowly burns more calories per mile then walking fastly. I still prefer running or jogging though. I do it for fun and to staaay fit, not to get fit. xD

This is not surprising at all! Walking is a great form of exercise. It is especially helpful for people who are very much overweight. If you have a lot of extra fat to carry around, you body uses a lot more calories to move around than if you are lean. This is a great example of a simple way that people can lose that extra weight! I once read that you should do things the 'fit' way instead of the 'fast' way if you want to lose weight. It definitely worked for this man!
