based on "A collaborative study involving 14 researchers from the U.S., Australia, Canada, France, and Sweden has established preliminary guidelines for how many steps per day people should accumulate for weight control." (Please note these recommendations are for "weight control'.)

- Age women - Steps per day

18-40: 12 000 steps per day
40-50: 11 000
50-60: 10 000
60 and over: 8 000

- Age men - Steps per day

18-50: 12 000
50 and over: 11 000

* Note: - 6000 steps a day were shown to be correlated with a lower death rate in men in a Harvard Study. - see walking.about.com/cs/measure/a/locke
