The “Easiest” Exercise You Should Be Doing

One of the things I try to impress upon for folks who’s primary goal is fat loss is the importance of daily movement (and, of course, nutrition). It’s no question that what you do in the gym pales in comparison to what you do the other 23 hours of the day. 

It’s virtually impossible to quantify any result if you spend half, if not, most of your day sitting down.

Here’s the easiest exercise you can start doing today:

It’s really simple: Go for a walk

Today, seemingly, everyone falls prey to the notion that exercise has to be gritty and hardcore. Granted, to a degree you have to strain your body if you want to make significant changes (you’re delusional if you think otherwise). And, while it may not be as impactful as lifting weights, make no mistake that walking every day does wonders for the body.

Many discount the value of walking because they feel the need to go 100% all the time. Being partial to one method or scheme doesn’t pan out well. You can gain a lot of benefits by working both sides of the training spectrum.

Of the many benefits, the biggest one I want to outline is improved nutrient partitioning. This basically means that your body becomes more efficient at utilizing the foods you eat — improved digestion, improved insulin sensitivity = fat loss machine.

Don’t complicate things. Aim for 30-40 minutes every day.

A simple way to put this into action is to walk 15-20 minutes after every meal.
