When my doctor showed me my lab results, he seriously suggested that I walk an hour a day, six days a week. I guess, like me, most everyone has heard of the benefits of walking but don't do it enough. A big excuse we have is the time it takes.
There is a method that originated in Japan that is catching on here. It is the 10,000 step plan. The ideas is to wear a pedometer during your regular activity and see how many steps you take. When you have that number, subtract it from 10,000. The number you have left is your goal. As you build toward walking those 10,000 total steps a day, you begin to experience more and greater health benefits .
It's worth a try. You might even walk your way right out of the type 2 diabetes danger zone.
