Why walk-the reason being:

1.It’s a great cardio exercise, lowering levels of LDL (bad) cholesterol while increasing levels of HDL (good) cholesterol. The Stroke Association says that a brisk 30-minute walk every day helps to prevent and control the high blood pressure that causes strokes, reducing the risk of strokes.
2.You’ll burn around 75 calories simply by walking at 2kmph for 30 minutes. Up your speed to 3kmph and it’s 99 calories, while 4kmph is 150 calories.
3. A brisk walk is one of the best natural energisers around. It boosts circulation and increases oxygen supply to every cell in your body, helping you to feel more alert and alive.
4. It’s true – exercise boosts your mood. Studies show that a brisk walk is just as effective as antidepressants in mild to moderate cases of depression, releasing feel-good endorphins while reducing stress and anxiety. So for positive mental health, walk.
5. walking tones up legs,bums and tums.

Binge eating disorder

It typically begins in late adolescence or early adulthood, often after a major diet. During a binge, you may eat even when you’re not hungry and continue eating long after you’re full. You may also binge so fast you barely register what you’re eating or tasting.Binge eating often leads to weight gain and obesity, which only reinforces compulsive eating. The worse you feel about yourself and your appearance, the more you use food to cope. It becomes a vicious cycle: eating to feel better, feeling even worse, and then turning back to food for relief.To recover from this make a healthy relationship with food.Avoid temptation,fight boredom,eat regularly,focus on what you are eating,avoid stress,indulge in little activity which refresh you.
