Taken a walk today? If not, you may want to pay close attention to this.
You might have heard that 10,000 steps is a MUST for optimal health…
But new research shows that only 8,200 steps is enough to protect you from some of the most common chronic diseases!
In a recent 4-year review of over 6,000 FitBit users in the “All of Us” medical project, researchers found that just 8,200 steps can protect you against:
Heartburn & Reflux
Major Depression Disorder
That’s just 4 miles per day.
Not only that, but researchers said the risk for most health problems continued to go down as the number of daily steps went up past the 8,200 mark.
What’s more, they also found that overweight people can cut their risk of obesity by 64% if they boost their daily step count from 6,000 to 11,000! 🤯
That’s a pretty good incentive to get out and walk, right?
Who needs to increase their steps? I know when I’m feeling my best, my daily step count is above 10k!
