Experts noted that the process of weight loss depends on gender, age, physical fitness and type of walking. The rate of fat burning depends on the speed of walking, the type of walking, for example, walking with poles, or walking up stairs can have different effects on the weight loss process.
“It is estimated that one step burns 0.04 kcal. It seems like quite a bit. Therefore, in 10,000 steps you can lose 400-500 kcal, which sounds much better. This is how many calories a full serving of food contains. And if you take 10,000 steps daily for a week, you can burn 2,800-3,500 kcal, which is already a lot,” they noted.
As experts have calculated, to lose one kg weight, you need to lose about 7,000 kcal. That is, to lose a kilogram of body weight, you need to take 10,000 steps daily for 2 weeks. Or, to speed up this process, you can take 20,000 steps every day for a week.
However, you should also remember to eat a healthy and balanced diet so as not to consume more calories than you burn. If you walk 20,000 steps every day and eat fast food at the same time, this will not help you lose weight.
