Don't just sit there! Lose weight while you're at it!
We've all heard the negative consequences of a sedentary lifestyle (and if you haven't, they include obesity, type II diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and early death), but most of us still spend way too much time sitting down—and have the not-so-flat belly to prove it. In fact, Physical Activity Council report showed that the percent of Americans who participated in high-calorie-burning activities reached an all-time low in 2015. Scientists are still trying to figure out exactly why sitting is so detrimental to health, but one explanation is that the less we move the less fuel we require. So, when our eating habits remain the same, there is a surplus of blood sugar that floods the bloodstream and contributes to diabetes and other weight-related risks.
Take care of your body because it’s the only place you have to live In.
