What benefits can I see from walking regularly?
Dr. John McDougall lists a few of the benefits associated with walking regularly in his article: "Achieve 100% Health with Exercise"
"Although dietary changes will take you a long way to being completely healthy, you will need some exercise to improve your fitness and well being. Exercise, as simple as a daily walk, can benefit you."
