No matter what you eat or how much you exercise, you desk job may be the culprit for weight gain according to a new study out of the University of Missouri. Researchers say most of us sit too much. From the revolution to the internet, non stop television entertainment, transportation, I don't think it's a stretch to say technology advances in way so that we can be MORE lazy.
In most cases, exercise alone, according to a team of scientists at the University of Missouri, isn't enough to take off those added pounds. The problem, they say, is that all the stuff we've heard the last few years about weight control left one key factor out of the equation. When we sit, the researchers found, the enzymes that are responsible for burning fat just shut down.[ABC News]
Ok, so what jobs allow you to stand for most of the day? Famous people never sit down. They are out filming movies, putting on concerts, getting in shape for their roles and concerts, shopping, more shopping, doing good around the world, etc... It's so easy for them NOT to sit down. When we do shoots for diet.com, my feet are always in pain from all the standing I do. Rich Celebs 1, the rest of us office workers 0. What other jobs that aren't 1 in a million allow employees to actually stand to do their job? Janitors, waitresses, floor sales people, personal trainers, meter maids, some teachers, some news anchors... When I worked at NESN, that place was not set up for lazy. The editing suites were down a good 100 Meter hallway, and the computers were at the other end, so if you didn't know who the heck #12 on the opposite team's name was, you had to go run to the other end look it up and run back to finish writing a script to go along with your video. Yeah, I used to run and wanted to get the sneaks with wheels. Anyway, anyone have any jobs that they are standing a lot? This study makes sense, but not really a medical breakthrough in my opinion.
