Have you noticed how fit and healthy Jessica Simpson looks these days? Months after giving birth to son Ace, she's rocking a trim body and singing the praises of Weight Watchers (which signed her on as a spokesperson after she had daughter Maxwell in 2012), as well as the 45-minute resistance training workouts she reportedly does three times a week with her trainer.
But there's another strategy she credits with getting her in shape and helping her stay there: daily walks. After Ace was born, she said she aimed to get 8,000 to 10,000 steps a day. "I wasn't trying to lose weight," she said in a recent interview with USA Today. Rather, she began walking to release anxiety and be a "happier person to be around." Now, she says, "I try and walk about four miles a day consistently. It makes me feel better."

Jessica's walking habit scores a big thumbs up from experts. "Walking is great exercise," says Boston-area sports nutritionist Nancy Clark, author of Nancy Clark's Sports Nutrition Guidebook. "You can do it in small increments and build it into your lifestyle." Hoofing it at a medium pace for a mile burns about 100 calories (for a 120-150 pound woman), says Clark, and keeping track of your steps, as Jessica did, can clue you in to how much you're doing and the calorie burn you're racking up.
