You too can become step-obsessed. The benefits are significant: burning an extra 700 to 2,000 calories a week—equivalent to three to six one-hour walks a week—garners significant health benefits, according to recent research from Harvard. But even short blasts of brisk walking, accumulated over the course of a day, can boost your well being and help you shed excess pounds. Important news when you consider a recent Statistics Canada report concluding that more than 48 per cent of Canadians are overweight or obese, and another finding that 54 per cent of Canadian women are physically inactive.
