We discussed about this application in a previous post, almost a year ago (link at the bottom)
But it might be something new if you started to follow this page just recently To summarise: It's a totally free app that gives you reward for walking! (with no other implications)
I wanted to make this post because there are some update and improvements and this could be a very good reason to increase your steps and activity everyday.
- It counts ALL the steps,included the one indoor, so no excuses if you can't leave home, as far you are keeping your phone in your pocket or using a connected smart watch, it will count every single step.
- More rewards, as discussed previously sometimes is not easy to keep the motivation, especially in the long run, but as simple as it sounds, getting rewards for your efforts and having targets (like your daily amount of steps to reach) it really can make the difference in the long term.

WHY COULD BE UNHEALTHY?
Keeping in my mind that the dose is making the difference, we are not talking about fruits and veggies which the amount could be included in a healthy diet.
A high amount of this can increase extra fat disposition and insulin resistance.
Another important note is the level of satiety which is low, it basically means that you need more of these kind of product to fill full and satisfied which also means a bigger portion/calories
FOOD HIGH IN FRUCTOSE:
LOW FAT YOGURT (always check the label because some brands are claiming a low fat product without mentioning a higher amount of sugars/fructose) DRESSING ( like Ketchup and Mayonneise ) FLAVOURED OR SWEETENED MILK CANNED FRUIT FIZZY DRINKS JUICE
As you can notice once again reading label is important to be aware about the content and the amount of certain products, fructose included.
