"In the meantime, do you have any tips and tricks on how to lose weight (and keep it off) and generally increase one's health and well-being?" I've heard Bean sprouts are good.....

Curious. Interesting that in the US the walking distance is longer than the driving distance, which does not match my quick tests in Australia, the UK and Europe, presumably because a driving route is optimised for speed, not distance and walking is all about the distance, including any suitable back road. The US must be really optimised for driving! Google keeps offering the use of ferries in Europe for walkers, though. London...Edinburgh takes you via the Netherlands...

Hi Max, I suspect that your walking route is a little bit longer because you can't walk on highways but anyway it is an interesting virtual tour. I should suggest you to change the route to visit some famous USA places as Death Valley, Mount Rushmore, Golden Gate Bridge and so on and then when you will do the equivalent distance you should make a "virtual photo" of you in the place, so you will update us of your progress with something like a virtual postcard. :-)

I fear you have developed an unnatural obsession about bean sprouts :-)

If you go downtown in Huntsville Alabama where I live, you take your life in your hands if you try to walk across the main road -- you are much safer getting in your car and driving across :-(

On Google Maps, ask for driving directions from San Francisco, CA to Tokyo, Japan. Hilarious!

One thing I heard that stuck in my mind is "If you aren't hungry enough to eat an apple ... then you aren't hungry" Makes you think...

You hear all sorts of terms like BMI when you are dieting, but someone just told me about a rule-of-thumb he'd heard, which is that tummy/belly fat is the worst for you and the hardest to get rid of -- and the amount you have is a good indicator of your overall health... ... also that you should aim for your waist measurement to be 1/2 your height, so if you are 6 feet (72 inches) tall, you should aim for a 36-inch waist...

Some books that might be of interest for the virutal or non-virtual walker: A Walk Across America, Peter Jenkins Into A Desert Place, Graham Mackintosh (he walked the perimiter of the Baja peninsula)
