Want an easy way to drop 15 pounds?
A new study done by the University of Missouri-Columbia says by walking the dog for just 20 minutes a day, 5 days a week you can lose an average of 14 pounds.
This is the ideal win-win situation for both you and your beloved dog. A 140 pound woman, will burn about 70 calories for just 20 minutes of dog walking. Add in a few of the "boosters" below and your calorie burn will jump and the pounds will fall off even faster.
Not only can dog walking, or any exercise with your dog, help you shed the pounds, but it can also increase your overall health. A combination of exercise and a lower body weight will lower blood pressure, increase mental sharpness and lower the risk of heart disease.
