This summer, you're going to look your best. And getting there will be easy. Just follow our three-month walking weight-loss guide. The plan is simple: In the first month, featured here, you'll burn calories and drop pounds by focusing on frequency. Month two (coming in June) pumps up the intensity. By month three (in July), all you'll need to do is walk longer. We'll lay out exactly how much you should walk (and include indoor workouts in case the weather puts the kibosh on your plans). In addition, you'll make small changes (no dieting) to your eating habits. Just one tweak a week and by the end of the plan you'll have 12 super strategies to keep you slim. Finally, this series includes bonus stretching and strengthening moves to help you burn even more calories. So put away the excuses. Here's everything you need to get moving — and slip into summer in the best shape ever.
