Both running and walking offer health benefits and instigate weight loss, but running offers more of a significant weight loss than walking.
That does’t mean that walking offers no weight loss benefits, just that running offers more. Running is harder to do and requires a greater deal of energy, so that shouldn’t be too surprising.
But what if you hate to run? Well, you could combine walking with short, hard sprints. Or you could skip the running altogether and get your weight loss and exercise benefits from something like swimming, biking, skating, yoga, or boot camp class.
Don’t sweat it if you hate running!
