From our sponsor: Does Walking Burn Calories?


Regular exercise—such as walking — is an important part of a healthy lifestyle. Not only can it help you achieve a healthy weight, but it also can:

  • Tone your muscles
  • Boost your cardiovascular endurance
  • Help reduce stress and tension
  • Increase your energy level
  • Help reduce the risk of certain health conditions, such as high blood pressureLike all exercise, walking also burns calories.

    Do you know how long you’d have to walk to burn 100 calories? We asked people on the street for their best guesses. Check out UHC.TV’s “Sidewalk Talk” to hear what they had to say.
