Weight loss is the number one reason that people start running, and number 2 is not even close. In our world, people just don’t move enough, anymore, and that creates a problem. We need to move a lot to burn enough calories. Many people want to run to lose weight, and many run because they don’t ever want to have weight to lose.
It’s safe to say that 80 percent of beginner runners are overweight, some with just a few pounds to lose, but many with many more.
In this episode, I explain how to utilize running to help you succeed in your weight loss journey.
Of course, diet is huge. I don’t mean dieting, per se, not being ‘on’ a diet, but eating a healthy, reasonable diet, day in and day out, but sometimes that’s not enough. Even if you lose the weight, without a lifestyle change, a change to a much more active life, you won’t keep it off. That won’t happen if you’re running. Running has the potential to make a massive difference in your body and that means a difference in your life.Stitcher Radio
