Jobs that Keep You in Shape
The Dr. Diet weighs in:
If all of us had jobs that challenged our bodies as much as our minds, the obesity epidemic and need for my professional expertise as a weight loss doctor would both be lessened.
We have become a world of "mouse potatoes", sitting and working at our computers hour after hour each day - and that type of "activity" burns very few calories through finger movements.
That's why so much of my counseling has to do with helping people fit fitness into their daily routine with the prime hours being before and after work and during break times.
Certainly weekends are a great time to work out but you don't want to be a "weekend warrior" doing a week's worth of sweating in 2 days.
Learning how to fit in moderate activity (brisk walking) 10 minutes here and there really does add up. And if you can accumulate a minimum of 30 minutes of brisk walking on most days of the week, you will be well on your way to boosting your health – no matter what your job.
