If you've decided to get serious about your weight-loss goals, you already know that focusing on eating healthy and exercising more are two of the core things to do when it comes to maintaining a healthier lifestyle. But you might just be overlooking another important step when it comes to dropping those pounds. And that's walking.Yes, the number of steps you take each day is a key component of not packing on extra pounds!And that's crucial during a time like right now when you might not be in the swing of your usual routine. And if you're looking for more tips to keep you on track, here are the 21 Best Healthy Cooking Hacks of All Time.But how many steps do you need to take every day in order to not gain weight?You're probably thinking you know this one—10,000 steps. That has been known as the lucky number, right? Well, that number might actually be too low. See, a 2017 study published in The International Journal of Obesity actually found that 15,000 steps each day is the accurate amount you should be taking.So how did The University of Warwick in England researchers come to these conclusions? Well, they compared the lives of sedentary office workers to those of mail carriers and discovered that the postal-service workers who walked at least 15,000 steps (that's about three hours a day or covering seven miles), had normal body mass indexes (BMI), waistline measurements, and metabolic profiles. They were also the only workers with effectively no heightened risk for cardiac disease. On the other hand, the workers who sat for most of each day (some as long as 15 hours) had larger waistlines, higher BMIs, worse blood sugar control and cholesterol profiles, and had the highest risk of heart disease.The big takeaway here? Workers who walked at least 15,000 steps had the lowest body mass indexes, waistline measurements, metabolic profiles, and lowest risk of heart disease.But before you assume the only way to improve your health is to switch career paths, don't get too ahead of yourself. The study had one positive finding for those who work desk jobs where you're sitting a majority of the day: almost any amount of walking reduced a worker's chances of having a large waistline and other risk factors for heart disease.How can you make sure you're getting enough steps in?Think about this way—your minimum goal should be closer to 15,000 steps a day, which is the equivalent of 2 hours of walking at a brisk pace. So how can you get there? Consider taking a 20-minute walk before, after work, and during lunch. That way, you're getting fresh air three times a day, which is great for your mental health too, stepping away from work to just move. During the day, consider doing a 2-minute loop around your office or home every 30 minutes. Even walking up and down the stairs is a great way to get your steps in and work up a little bit of a sweat.Hitting that daily goal of 15,000 steps not only improves your health, but because it helps jumpstart your metabolism, so you'll be able to efficiently avoid gaining any unwanted pounds.

Because grocery shopping is far from a contactless activity, the safest way to get groceries right now is by ordering them online instead of making a trip to the store, according to the CDC. But even some delivery options may bring customers in close proximity with individuals from outside of your home. At some Chicago Jewel-Osco and Bay Area Safeway stores, that won't be an issue for much longer. Fully contactless PickUp lockers are being tested in the Chicago stores before moving to the West Coast, parent company Albertsons recently announced. The modular lockers are temperature controlled, which means they can be set up either indoors and outdoors. Plus, the grocer will be able to maintain proper temperatures for both frozen and heated items. Upon checking out, customers may select a time frame to pick up their order from the self-serve lockers using a code. (Be sure to check what is on your next grocery list, because these 8 Grocery Items May Soon Be in Short Supply.)"With our temperature-controlled grocery lockers, Albertsons Cos. customers can quickly and conveniently pick up their entire order, from heated to frozen food items, whenever and wherever they want," Larry Blue, the CEO of Bell and Howell, the company which manufactures the PickUp lockers, said in a news release.The PickUp lockers announced by Albertsons join other contactless shopping innovations introduced by grocery stores amid the coronavirus pandemic. Albertsons has already introduced Drive Up&Go options at Jewel-Osco and Safeway, plus other brands like Tom Thumb, Shaw's, and Von.Walmart recently won the top spot for buy-online-pickup-in store orders in a survey of 2,000 shoppers from Ipsos. A major key to its success? Good signage. Sam's Club, a subsidiary of Walmart, finished first in curbside pickup in the grocery category. Dedicated parking was available at every audited Sam's Club location. Kroger placed second because of its ability to fulfill orders on time.Do the stores with the best online ordering services match up to the friendliest and helpful stores? Here are the grocery stores with the best customer service, according to new data.

The CDC list of coronavirus symptoms includes fever, dry cough, and a new loss of taste or smell, along with other issues—but that doesn't explain what happens to your body when you get COVID. We talked to researchers about what happens to your body when you get COVID, and here's what they said. 1 First, COVID Enters Your Body "The virus primarily affects the respiratory system and is transferred between humans by airborne mechanisms, like coughing or sneezing, or by contact of contaminated surfaces, doorknobs, etc, with hands and then rubbing the face," says Dr. Jeffrey Langland, Ph.D., an instructor for Medical Microbiology, Immunology, and Concepts in Research. "It attacks the human body in three phases: viral replication, immune hyperactivity and pulmonary destruction"—pulmonary meaning your lungs—says Dr. Monika Stuczen, FIBMS, a Medical Microbiologist and R&D and QC Laboratory Manager at MWE. 2 In the Beginning, You Might Feel Nothing From COVID "At the beginning of infection, people produce a large quantity of the virus," says Stuczen. "The incubation time is between 2 and 14 days with an average of 5 days. During this time infected people do not show any symptoms but they contribute to the spread of the virus without even realizing it. Moreover, it is proved that some people may be asymptomatic but they are still able to infect others." 3 Once COVID is in Your Body, it Take Over Your Cells "The virus infects the cells in the respiratory tract, taking over the cells' functions, allowing the virus to replicate and then spread from cell to cell," says Langland. "In mild cases, the body's immune system helps to limit the spread of the virus within the body." That's when a fever may set in, to combat the infection. "In more severe cases, the viruses spread more and can lead to a 'cytokine storm' where the immune system is highly stimulated." 4 Then You Can't Breathe Due to COVID "This infection can lead to the problems of breathing difficulties from the bronchials constricting and limiting airflow. You might cough as a result or feel shortness of breath," says Langland. 5 Depending on Your Health, COVID Could Get Worse—Much Worse "There are three patterns presented with Covid-19," says Stuczen. "It usually begins with mild upper respiratory illness followed by non-life-threatening pneumonia. After about 7 days it can progress to severe pneumonia with acute respiratory distress syndrome when the patient may require life support. In severe pneumonia, lungs are filled with inflammatory material. They are unable to get enough oxygen to the bloodstream, reducing the body's ability to take on oxygen and remove carbon dioxide what in most cases causes death. About 1 out of 6 people who contract Covid-19 becomes seriously ill and develop difficulty breathing." 6 If You Have an Underlying Condition, Your Body Has a Harder Time Fighting COVID "People with underlying conditions such as cardiovascular problems, high blood pressure, diabetes, cancer, immunosuppressed patients and older people are more likely to develop serious illness," says Stuczen. 7 Eventually, With Good Care and Good Luck, Your Body Can Heal From COVID "Don't panic," says Langland. "Most cases are minor and even the more moderate cases will be fine. The majority of deaths are in the elderly or those with other underlying conditions, including hypertension and diabetes." 8 However, Many Patients Suffer Effects From COVID for Months "Thousands of people across the globe — many of whom were young, active, and healthy — have been debilitated by ongoing, unexplainable symptoms," reports Buzzfeed. "These patients, also known as long-haulers, are crushing the popular idea that COVID is only serious for a small percentage of vulnerable people." "This is not just a respiratory illness. This is a systemic illness that makes you lose connection with the world," patient Hannah Davis told BuzzFeed News. "And the most shocking thing to me is how long it has taken for doctors and the general public to realize this basic fact." 9 What to Do if You Feel Like You Have COVID "Anyone experiencing flu-like symptoms, high temperature, new, continuous cough or shortness of breath should stay at home and self-isolate immediately," says Stuczen. "People with mild symptoms are able to recover at home. Make sure you drink plenty of fluids. Proper hydration is very important in your recovery process. Separate yourself from other people at home as much as possible and do not share personal household items such as cups, plates, drinking glasses, towels or bedding. You should stay in one room and use a separate bathroom if available. Wash your hands very often. You should also restrict contact with pets and animals. It is recommended that people with the virus limit contact with animals until more information is known. If you need to leave home make sure you wear a facemask and you keep at least six feet distance from other people.Remember that you may only experience mild symptoms and recover quickly but if you don't use all precautions you may infect other people with weaker immune systems. Their bodies may not be able to cope with the virus and it may cost their life. Everyone reacts to this virus in a different way and we need to make sure we protect not only ourselves but also people around us." 10 What to Do if Your COVID Symptoms Worsen "If your symptoms are worsening (for example you have difficulty breathing) seek medical care immediately," says Stuczen. "Don't go to the hospital or doctor's office. Call ahead and tell them your symptoms. They will tell you what to do. You can leave home after at least 7 days have passed since your first symptoms appeared and you have no fever for a minimum 72 hours without the use of medicine that reduces fever and all other symptoms have improved such as cough or shortness of breath." 11 How to Prevent COVID Infection in the First Place "Try to avoid contact with others. Keep distance between you and others if you need to be in a public space. Wash hands and avoid touching your face with your hands. Disinfect surfaces where others may have touched. Also, try to stay healthy. Eat well, get rest and try to not stress. Keep your immune system strong and healthy," says Langland. "The novel coronavirus is just that, new, which means the world's population has no immunity," says Marjorie Golden, MD, a Yale Medicine infectious disease specialist. Stay inside to keep you—and everyone else—happy and healthy, and your body will thank you.
