Walking Ability
You can modify the walking duration based on your ability. Beginners should visit our Absolute Beginners Tutorial to learn how to walk and build up their endurance. Experienced walkers who find the durations to be too short in the first few weeks should continue with their usual duration until we catch up with you. In the meantime, enjoy tips on technique, exercise, and nutrition.

Weight Loss: If your goal is to lose weight, first check with your medical provider to see if a reduced calorie diet is appropriate for you. You may also want to get a personal consultation with a registered dietitian. The general nutritional advice offered on this site is for normally healthy adults and may not apply to you as an individual.

Diets and Portions: If a reduced calorie diet is appropriate for you, you may use these suggested diets as a guideline. Free charts to mark off your servings each day.
