And no... it isn't heavy. It's so light you won't even know its there. It's a Pedometer. New studies show that by wearing a pedometer you are more likely to move, burn more calories, and lose weight.
Researchers at an IndianaUniversity saw that the "self challenge" aspect of wearing a pedometer is the main reason. We are competitive by nature. And most people in the study wanted their numbers to go up each day... not down. Just by wearing a pedometer and nothing else, the average weight loss for each in the study was 3 lbs in 12 weeks. And don't worry if you dont want to buy one... you can download free pedometer apps to your phone.
