Loosing weight too: fast can be dangerous. See your doc first, and then consider lower carb and higher protein intake. Exercise daily if possible, even brisk walking 20-30 minutes is helpful.

If i walk 30 minutes daily at 5 km/h, will it be useful for weight loss? And if no, what is the recommended practice to get result?

If i walk 30 minutes daily at 5 km/h, will it be useful for weight loss? And if no, what is the recommended practice to get result?

Distance not time: Walking is an excellent exercise. The speed is not as important as the distance. At 5 km/h for 30 min you will walk about 2.5 km (1.5 mile). Depending on your size, you will burn about 120-180 calories. To lose 1 lb you need to burn 3500 calories. I generally recommend walking 15 miles (24 km) per week in order to lose weight. ...Read more

I am 5'8", weigh 229. Bp is 120/75. I walk 2 1/2 miles in 40 min. 5 x a week. My weight loss is slow. What is a healthy weight for me? 160 seems low.

This is about right: Your height and weight convert to a body mass index (bmi) of 34, which is in the obese category. 160 pounds would be a bmi of 24, which is in the ideal bmi range of 20-25. Exercise will help with weight loss, but you will lose faster if you also follow a low-glycemic index diet (increased protein, reduced sweets and starches). ...Read more

I have changed my diet completly and walk 2-3 miles a week. I have lost 60 lbs since march. Does that sound like unexplained weight loss? ?

No: That sounds like weight loss due to lifestyle change. Increasing your activity level to moderate activity level and improving your diet (and ultimately lowering your daily calorie intake) have allowed you to have healthy successful weight loss, not unexplained weight loss! congratulations and keep your activity level high, add some strength training to your current activity & continue to lose! ...Read more
