If you've been focusing on getting 10,000 steps per day to keep up with your weight-loss goals then this news is not going to make you happy. New research has found that the one size fits all number of 10,000 steps per day is just not cutting it anymore. Here are the new guidelines for how many steps per day people should accumulate for weight control:
Age 18-40: 12,000 steps per day
Age 40-50: 11,000 steps per day
Age 50-60: 10,000 steps per day
Age 60 plus: 8,000 steps per day
Age 18-50: 12,000 steps per day
Age 50 +: 11,000 steps per day
So time to dust off the old pedometer and make sure you're getting enough steps in your day.
