10000 stegs promenad
Many governments and health officials recommend people walk 10,000 steps a day, the equivalent of about five miles (eight kilometres). The study authors, from the Murdoch Children’s Research Institute in Melbourne, estimated that if a sedentary person increased their daily steps to reach the 10,000 step threshold, he or she would lower their body mass index by almost one point and improve their sensitivity to insulin by three times.
Health officials have long suggested people stay slim and exercise to avoid diabetes.
”Think about what you do each day and how you can work in more steps,” advises the American Diabetes Association on its website, which recommends taking the stairs instead of the elevator. ”You’ll be amazed at how these extra minutes and steps add up.”
