Walk­ing the dog BLASTS CALO­RIES

First For Women - - Health -

Tak­ing your pup for a stroll is a sur­pris­ingly ef­fec­tive fat burner, notes May, a master trainer at Burn 60 Stu­dios in Los An­ge­les, where she helps Naomi Watts and Reese Witherspoon slim. In­deed, sci­en­tists found peo­ple walk 28 per­cent faster with their dogs. This uptick in speed boosts me­tab­o­lism enough to help dog own­ers lose 14 pounds more a year than those with­out a dog.

“Swing your arms as you walk,” sug­gests May. This will en­gage the del­toids to sculpt the shoul­ders.
