    Beta blockers reduce weekly habitual activity by 34%, as measured by the number of steps taken in a week by a pedometer, according to a study from Australia.

    The average number of steps taken in a week was 38,816 steps in the Beta-blocker group versus 58,944 steps in the control group.

    (The paper rounds off the calculation to approximately 30%, however, the calculation shows the difference is 34%.)

    Beta blockers are drugs are given for:


    Subjects: 11 chronic Beta-blocker users vs 19 controls

    The study involved “11 chronic Beta-blocker users (7 women, 54-78 years old) and 19 controls recruited were well matched for age, BMI and adiposity” the paper notes.

    Resting energy expenditure was 175 calories higher in the Beta-blocker group than the control group—1484 calories per day versus 1309 calories per day—however, the difference was not statistically significant.
