In this episode we'll explore fitness trackers and the fitness goal of 10,000 steps a day. Why that number? What happens if you don't hit it? And what else needs to be considered with fitness trackers when it comes to a healthy relationship with your body. Especially if you're recovering from chronic dieting and disordered eating.
We dive into the origins and research behind the 10,000 steps/day concept, the accuracy of fitness trackers, long term expectations from their usage and what the research says about physical benefits from varying step amounts.
