According to Shape Up America, walking 2,000 steps, or the equivalent of 1 mile, burns about 100 calories. This value is for a typical American with a typical stride length. According to About Health, the exact quantity of calories burned by walking varies on the walker’s age, weight, motion while walking, and fitness level. A 150-pound person expends 80 calories by walking between 2,000 and 2,500 steps.
According to About Health, most weight loss programmes encourage eating healthy meals and burning 200 to 300 calories per day through moderate to intense exercise. According to WebMD, the “Step Diet” encourages dieters to increase physical activity while reducing calories. According to the plan, it works by cutting portion sizes by 25% and walking up to 10,000 steps every day. The NHS Choices website of the United Kingdom Department of Health recommends that a person burn 600 calories more per day than they consume in order to lose weight.
According to NHS Choices, the average person takes 3,000 to 4,000 steps per day, with 1,000 normal steps equaling 10 minutes of vigorous walking. Electronic pedometers worn while walking measure and total the distance travelled to determine the exact number of steps taken in a day.
