Walk On, Rock On: Month One

Burn fat with less effort

You can burn more fat by walking than weight-lifting or high-energy aerobics. How can that be? Fat oxidation is actually more efficient when you exercise in the midrange of aerobic activity rather than the high range where you're huffing and puffing. Also, after you've been walking a few weeks, you'll have raised your metabolic rate which means your body will be burning more calories even when you're not exercising!
