How Much Weight Can You Lose If You Walked 500 Miles Like the Proclaimers Proclaimed?

We all know this song about pledging to walk 500 miles (and eventually 500 more, if need be) for a woman’s love.

But say that you did walk 500 miles. What kind of weigh loss could you expect?

Danny Fotheringham, a banker and Proclaimers from (where else?) Scotland, decided to walk that far to raise money for a local school. He ended up losing 112 pounds–a third of his body weight.

Good on him. More at The Daily Mail.
