Running for Weight Loss

When some people decide that they want to lose weight, they join a diet program. Others sign up for aerobics classes. And others go out and buy expensive exercise equipment. These things may very well be effective, but if you want to lose weight, you really don’t need anything more than your two feet.

Running is one of the best forms of exercise for weight loss. There’s no special equipment required, just a good pair of shoes and a place to run. The average person burns 100 to 150 calories per mile when running. And in addition to weight loss, running is also great for cardiac health and muscle tone in the lower body.
