Aerobic exercise like walking is one of the best ways to lose weight and an hour a day should be a good amount of exercise. Walking briskly will add to the benefits. Of course, a healthy diet is also important for weight loss. Some of the soundest dietary advice is dr. Fuhrman's: http://www.Drfuhrman.Com/library/are-you-a-nutritarian.Aspx.

Walking or an hour will help you burn up about 200 calories extra, over a month this could be about 2 lb. However, if the exercise makes you more hungry or if you use it as a reward to eat more, you will not lose weight at all. 1 extra slice of pizza adds 500 calories, or about 5 miles of walking.
