Healthy walking

I have always been a proponent of walking.  Not that it will necessarily make you use weight but it will improve you mood, give you more energy and improve your sleep.

I recommend getting a $15 pedometer and wearing it for two weeks.  At the end of the two weeks divide by 14 to find out how many steps a day you take.

Now increase this by 5% for two weeks.  Towards the end of the week, see how you are doing and add a little over the weekend if you need to.
Now increase by 5% for the next two weeks.  You are working up to 8000-10000 steps a day.  I dont endorse slim-fast, but you can track your steps and weight for free on their website.

Remember, you dont have to sit when you are on the phone, there are many common tasks you can do moving around.
I guarantee you will feel better!
