Burn More Walking

I started doing little mini-bootcamp sessions at home to get a little calorie burning in.  I was taught to do intervals and seen the difference it can make in just 2 sessions per week.  So when I came across this I wasn’t surprised.

“In this form of exercise, you alternate bursts of fast, intense walking with periods of slower and less-intense walking, which allows your body to recover. In fact, by doing interval walking for a mere 20 minutes every other day, you can shift your metabolism into high gear so that you burn more calories and fat in less time than if you were working out at a steady pace.And there’s a bonus: With interval walking, the higher the intensity of the exercise, the longer the afterburn; that is, you will continue to burn more fat and calories even after you stop exercising! Below are seven tips to help you get the most out of your interval-walking session.”

Eat Clean Diet Tips

From the Eat Clean Diet newsletter – sign up here!

“I find late-night cravings normally come from boredom and not hunger.
I stay busy in the evenings and they pass without a pig out.”

– Wendy_morley

“I have found that [cravings] are rarely hunger related for me and that they will pass. So I distract myself. I take a bath with a great Oxygen mag and I brush my teeth. Nothing tastes very good after that, and I would hate to do it again!”
– Heidi

“I go to bed!”
– Tatttt2

“With 5 meals a day and 100 plus oz of water, it’s usually not an issue. However, when and if this problem arises, my answer is: ?water water water! I know that if my mind is saying ‘snack,’ it really means, ‘H20.'”
– Italynette

“I brush and floss my teeth, and then use mouthwash to lose any tastes that linger and this helps me lose cravings.”
– Idsmom33

“I just had a piece of gum – it helps when I have the late night munchies … something to chew on!”
– Cogmom

“I fix a nice steaming cup of decaf hot tea and sip it as I relax on the couch. It is calming and comforting.”
– Odessa

Of course, as Eat-Clean Diet® Community members Toodlepip and Jolamar pointed out, if we are truly hungry we shouldn’t deny ourselves. To satiate your evening hunger, try having one of the following small meal options:

“One dried organic fig will do the trick for me.”
– All4cate

“If I get the urge, I’ll try to stick to fruits and nuts.”
– Tanyaprud_homme

“Sometimes just a few spoons of yogurt/cottage cheese will do the trick.”
– Toodlepip

Walking to Lose Weight?

From EverydayHealth.com:

Q: My doctor told me that I need to get more aerobic exercise, but I hate going to the gym! I do like to walk, but how fast and how long should I go to improve my cardiovascular health?

A:  I understand exactly what you mean about going to the gym; I’m not a big fan of it either. Personally, I prefer to exercise outdoors or at home. And like you, I really enjoy walking.Recently, I’ve begun recommending what’s known as interval walking to many of my patients. With interval walking, you alternate between short bursts of intensive effort and easier recovery periods, as opposed to walking at a steady, continuous, and potentially monotonous pace. In fact, studies show that you can get better results in 20 minutes of interval exercise than you would in an hour of steady-state exercise….Read the rest of the answer click here.
