The best exercise for trimming weight from the waist, hips and thighs is walking. However most of us are too busy to walk enough during the day to lose the weight in the first place.

 

Reducing the Waist While Working

Restoring and maintaining optimal health is something that our bodies have evolved to do naturally over millions of years. Simply stated we were designed to walk between 30-35 miles per day as hunter gatherers yet today the average American walks between 1.5-2 miles per day. That is reason number one why our waistlines have grown as a nation.

Weight loss and maintanence is dependent upon continual movement throughout the day. We weren't designed to leave the caves in the morning, hunt for an hour and spend the rest of the day sitting on a rock. We were designed to move. Without continual movement we gain weight and are at risk of disease.

Treadmill desks allow us to live a modern life but also let our bodies do what we were designed for in the first place: Walking. The Surgeon General advises a minimum of 10,000 steps per day, roughly equivalent to 5 miles. Ask yourself the last time you walked 5 miles in a day. This goal can easily be achieved before lunch if you have a treadmill desk.

So, looking to lower BMI, or Waist to Hip Ratios, or some other index that makes you feel bad about yourself? Do yourself a favor. Eat natural foods and walk during the day. Your body will take care of the rest. Just read the studies on our website and you will be amazed to learn about all of the curative powers involved in taking that first step.
