I am becoming more and more interested in knowing the benefits that low intensity exercise can bring, so I’ve been wearing an OMRON Walking Style One 2.1 Step Counter on my more active days when I’ll go out for a 40 minute brisk walk, and on my inactive days when I sit at the desk working and so doing much less stepping out in comparison. This is a slim line device with a secure clip that will fit on your waistband which measures the intensity of a walking activity and then can calculate the approximate amount of calories burned over 24 hours. Example: Active Day – 8000 steps – 1.6 miles walked – 166 calories burned In Active Day – 1696 steps – 0.3 miles walked – 1 calorie burned Results revealed the days of inactivity (working at the computer) I am burning so few calories that I could only maintain or lose weight by reducing my calorie intake, if my aim was to lose weight. Whereas I would only need to include three Active …

A Review of Zaggora HotPants™

Made from a mix of Neoprene, Polyester and Nylon label – lining has CELU-LITE TECHNOLOGY (Tm). They have the foam/spandex-like …
