Alice H. Lichtenstein is director of the Cardiovascular Nutrition Lab in the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Human Nutrition Research Center at Tufts University in Boston. She was encouraged but not surprised by the findings.

"There's something about a pedometer that makes a difference," said Lichtenstein, who is also a former chair of the American Heart Association's nutrition committee.

"Perhaps the pedometer is reinforcing behavior change," she speculated. "With some people, it gives them a goal. For others, it serves as a reminder. And, of course, anyone who's made a commitment to wear a pedometer has likely made some sort of internal commitment to stick with the exercise program. And this is a way you can look and check and see how you're doing. And that's instant gratification."
