Walk 30 miles a day

I have a crazy idea and I want to know if it's possible.

Apparently if you walk 10 miles, you burn anywhere between 800-1,200 calories. If that's true, then if you just walk 30 miles a day, you'll lose a full pound in one day. If you can do that for a whole week, then you can lose 6-7 pounds in one week from that alone.

Well, am I right? Or will my feet disintegrate before I can accomplish this?

    I walk 10 miles a day at work and it’s been great, I get to eat at my regular maintenance and still lose about .5-1 pounds a week. 30 is way overkill stop looking for bullshit easy solutions that aren’t sustainable

      I know it sounds outlandish, and it definitely is. But if it works, it works.

      Disclaimer, I don't know if it works.

        look up dudes who hike the appalachian trail, that's some next level walking shit. it goes from georgia to maine or some shit, most ppl don't make it the whole way but some ppl do. if you want to see how far you can take walking, check it out.

          I had a friend who hiked this trail last year. Took him like 3 months or something. Then he climbed some mountain at the end. Dude lost like 40 lbs and now he’s back to his regular life and it’s exceedingly dull.

          I feel like once you accomplish something like this it sets the rest of life into perspective.

      It’s possible, I had the same idea at one point before my schedule existed. But it’s not sustainable in that you have to push through the pain and you’re not gonna get it done in one go at first so don’t even try. Start with whatever distance in one go is challenging but that you can achieve. Every other day. Build up by like 1mile each week, then start doing 2 days walk with one day of rest in between. Then start breaking it up once the distance works out to be about 5 hours walked. Keep progressing until you can do 30 miles a day and still give yourself 1-2 days rest once you get there. Just so it’s clear, you’ll be walking for about 10 hours a day.

    if you really wanna burn the most calories walking then incline is your best bet, obviously this is done easiest on a treadmill but if you live in an area with hills then that works too

    i walk ten miles pretty regularly, it's not too bad. takes i'm gonna say like an hour. i walk autistically fast. so basically you'd have to be walking fast clip for three hours. oh, you know what you can do, put on a heavy back pack to burn more. still assuming you have an 8 hours a day job, doing 30 a day is going to take all your free time. probably better to just run if you can.

      Yeah I think that's called rucking, and apparently with a heavy pack you can burn up to 50% more calories.

      If that's true, then instead of walking 30 miles a day, you could just walk 15 miles with a heavy pack. If I do rucking on an incline, then I could walk for an even shorter length

      i looked up my last ~10 miles walk, it says it took 140 minutes and burning 1100 calories. damn, slower than i thought, so that's where all my time goes! lol. i average like 6 miles a day, many days only 5 and a few 7s and then a couple tens. if you want to get autistic about walking, consider an apple watch. i know people hate the idea of buying anything consumery, but that shit is like pumping stats on an addictive rpg but it's your own body. just get an old refurbished one if u feel guilty about spending on shit like that.

          oh ya in my mind i was thinking five which is it actually is. you know what happens, is i walk down to the grocery store on the other side of town and then bike back up, so the hour is one way, if i walk round trip it's 2 hours.

        I have one actually it reads everything but my brainwaves. Pretty cool. Idk how accurate the calorie lost part is though.

        This is a great plan, I'm stupid enough that I'd just do it without any preparation.

        What I'm thinking about right now, is combining this with rucking. Even if it's just 10 miles carrying 30-50 pounds, if I do that with a 1000 calorie deficit I could probably lose anywhere between three to six pounds a week hopefully maintaining muscle.

        you don't need an apple watch, you can just buy a $100 fitness tracker from amazon that does all the same things.

          oh ya probably but i like that i can see my texts without having to pull my phone out etc. but i also feel like the apple rings are a good motivated. i have almost 200 perfect exercise weeks cuz even if it's shit weather or whatever i'm like ok fuck let me at least close the green ring when without i just wouldn't. it's a tiny nudge, but clearly for the last like 3 years it's been nudging me effectively.

                You got to be able to have fun with it. It gets even more fun when you're on a streak. To boost the fun, you can set rewards up for yourself for keeping the streak going.

                Idk, up to you I guess. This type of stuff usually works best for people who don't have the discipline or the motivation to improve themselves starting out.

                Try this, and before you know it you'll be tricking your mind into building discipline and you'll get motivated by the results.

                Some people just do it for the fun of it. It's an added incentive, a reason to keep going or even to keep it up after you've reached your goal.

        Just start running regularly OP. Walking 30 miles a day will fuck your shit up. I run 30-35k a week and I still stay at sub 10% bf despite eating a lot of crap in my diet.

    Walking is terrible for your knees. Easy run instead, it burns more calories and puts less stress on your knees.
