It Works — So Keep It Up!

Are all those extra steps really doing anything for you?  Yes, according to the research published in January in the BMJ (British Medical Journal).

In an Australian study, researchers tested 592 middle-aged adults.  They gave the subjects a pedometer and told them how to use it.  They re-examined the steppers five years later. The subjects who increased their number of steps up to 10,000 steps a day had a lower body mass index, less belly fat, and better insulin sensitivity than those who didn’t increase their steps.

And increasing steps is something everyone can do painlessly and without expense.  So snap on that pedometer and keep up the stepping!
