When I read the statistic that women who walked for just 30 minutes every day over a period of 15 years Women Avoid 17 Pounds of Weight Gain avoided 17 pounds of weight gain when compared with their sedentary counterparts I was really surprised.

That’s a pretty amazing finding considering walking is one activity that most of us can partake in.

Truthfully, though, I think the 17 pounds was avoided by using walking as a catalyst for better health. I believe that the women who walked for 30 minutes a day realized that they were doing something beneficial for themselves and that carried over into other decisions in their lives… like passing on the ice cream after dinner or on the mid-afternoon sweets.
