If you hate excessive cardio, then just try walking!
I personally hate running, stairclimbers and elliptical machines, so I’ve been walking the last 8 years of my life and remained thin doing so.
Walking is also great to take away the stress since it lowers cortisol, the stress hormone that can store fat and increase anxiety.
Studies have even shown that though runners get an endorphin rush, their cortisol also spikes.
If you’re prone to anxiety, try fast paced walking instead.
Walking is great for your abs, can help you lose weight, and is great for your heart and joints.
