Lose More Weight By Walking

 

People in other countries walk more than people walk in the United States.  According to the a new study in Medicine & Science in Sport & Exercise, this difference may be one reason Americans are more obese and have bigger bottoms.  Diet and Culture play a role in a nation’s rate of obesity.  But it appears average adults in other countries rely on public transportation more than cars vs American who rely more on their cars.  These numbers should give you inspiration to grab a pedometer and shoot for 10,000 steps a day.

Country                 Average Daily Steps                            Obesity Rate

US                                            5,117                                                          34%

Australia                                    9,695                                                          16%
