On average we burn 100 calories every mile we walk. So by getting 10,000 steps per day which equals 5 miles you will burn about an extra 500 calories a day. This adds up to 3500 calories/week, which is 1lb per week just by walking. So if your goal is fat lose aiming for 10K per day can help get you in a deficit without changing much!
Other benefits of walking:
Helps relieve stress
Improves oxygen flow throughout the body
Increases energy levels
Lowers cholesterol and blood pressure
Burns calories which helps control our weight
How to get 10K per day?
Take the stairs
Build in a lunchtime walk-set aside 10 - 30 minutes to take a brisk walk on your break. Taking time to walk will not only add steps but it can also help clear your mind and help you refocus for the rest of the work day.
Alternative transportation-maybe walk to grab a coffee or to meet a friend!
