Why Am I Walking Every Day and Not Losing Weight?
If you're walking every day and not seeing results, you're not burning enough calories on your walks to put you in to a caloric deficit, explained NASM-certified trainer and physical therapist Molly Canu. While many experts say to walk 30 minutes a day, that's only about 3,000 to 5,000 steps, depending on how fast you walk.
NASM-certified trainer Jennifer Giamo said, "I usually recommend that clients get in at least 10,000 steps per day, (about five miles) but of course if possible, more is always better!" Canu said you can push that number higher and aim for 12,000 steps a day.
