Walking vs. Running – Which is Best for Weight Loss?

When it’s time to shed pounds, many people take up running because it’s a proven way to break a good sweat and torch lots of calories. Plus running itself is pretty simple and straightforward and doesn’t require any special equipment or even a gym membership. But what if you’re not too hot on running and prefer to walk? Does that mean you won’t get as great of a workout, and thus won’t be able to lose as much weight if you walk?

In this Ask Dr. Phoenyx episode, I tackle a question that many fitness newbies have pondered when it’s time to lace up your sneakers and get in shape – Should I run or should I walk? Watch the video to get the answer, and also subscribe to my YouTube channel for a regular dose of fitness and healthy living tips!
