Someone once made an amazing fitness discovery — the secret to a long life, fewer pounds and inner peace is to walk 10,000 steps a day. I’m not sure whether it was Mehmet Oz or Mahatma Gandhi. Maybe it was Confucius who said, “A journey begins with a single step, but 10,000 are recommended.”
The 10,000-step program, which is not to be confused with the 12-Step Program, is just what we need in America, where Big Macs and Hot Pockets are the cuisine of choice and obesity has become an epidemic. Sometimes, the only exercise our young people get is twerking and texting.
