30 Bananas a Day!

has anyone in the community been successful by walking to lose weight/ boost metabolism? i come from an anorexic background and associate running with being anorexic/not eating and i also hate it. I love walking and was just wondering everyone else's thoughts on this! thanks so much everyone!

thanks PK! i am definitely over my ed, i was just stating my background and me as well! thanks for the advice!! 

Walking is great, easier on the joints.
Some girl on here (forgot her name) got in great shape (like freelee sort of good) by walking like 8 miles a day.
I think she said that's about all she did for exercise.

thanks ms bunny! this is really encouraging and awesome to hear! 

Good point, when i started trying to lose weight the books would say a mile a day, and I didn't feel anything.  I think a good stiff challenge like hers would be better.  I could do 5 miles probably.

i have been walking about 4 miles the past 2 days and i really enjoy so i'm going to keep it up!

Anybody know who this was?

I would walk, its good for you and better to do than not do.  It also leads to running.  Get outside and do any physical activity that sounds fun.

Cardio is NOT exclusively anorexic, I would reexamine that attitude.

I do about 3-4 hours of cardio a day and I'm anorexic, don't worry you go anorexic unless you force yourself

You can lose as much weight as you want just by walking, BUT.... it depends on your current stats and fitness level.

I really doubt you could lose much by walking 2-3 miles / day, but if you walk like 5-6+ miles / day then that's something different.

A couple of months ago I was travelling around Europe and I was walking at least 7-8 miles / day (with some days of 10-15+ miles) and I lost a ton of weight (and I wasn't overweight AT ALL before doing that). I walked at a rather fast pace too (I don't like to walk slow).

I believe walking is a good source of excercise it's just low impact.  It also depends on how long you walk and it would be even better if you walked a lot of hills too!

If you push yourself into high heart rate territory it does create stress on the body if you aren't carbed up enough or have come out of an eating disorder. Better to be gentle, consistent, long term, then build up to higher cardio when it's fun and easier to do so and pushing it more feels good. Though I'm no expert just personal experience.
