How Much Exercise Do I Need to Lose Weight?
To lose weight, your goal should be one hour of moderate activity each day. This will burn about 2,000 calories per week, helping you achieve gradual, maintainable weight loss.
When starting an exercise plan, it is important to set goals, gather your gear and track your progress. Be sure to set reasonable goals for your current fitness level. Just getting started? Start by walking 15 minutes three times per day with 5 minutes of stretching after each walk. Already walking 30 minutes a day? Aim for 45 minutes of walking with 15 minutes of weight training.
