Stand up and lose weight: Try a Stand up Desk
by: Dr. Ron Repice
Most people that I know… who may be overweight, and work at a desk… spend a lot of time in front of their computer at their job, whether it’s just for a few hours a day at home, or perhaps a job that requires them to do just that.
Not a good practice… if you’re trying to drop some weight or get rid of some of those nasty little cellulite patches.
But don’t worry.
I have an answer. Unfortunately, it’s a lifestyle that most people can’t avoid, but if you can switch to a stand up desk when you’re working on your computer, you’ll naturally burn more calories every day and improve your posture and mood. Now it’s not about burning calories, but it is about speeding up your metabolism.
I’ve said this to many of my patients, “if you improve your posture, lose some weight, and have a better idea of who you are, you’re going to be HEALTHIER, and you’re going to feel like doing more, and when you feel like doing more, you’ll drop weight FASTER & and then KEEP IT OFF!”
Here’s the deal. It’s your lifestyle that really matters for your long term weight loss goals, and standing up is one way to be more “active” without changing your job or your computer habits. To ease into the change, (if you can do this) consider a tall(er) chair – so you can sit and stand throughout your day. Weight Loss Secret: You should never sit longer than 30 minutes at a time.
If you want real help, make sure you’re on our weight loss program, you adhere to it, and you follow it as I’ve laid it out for you. I’m telling you this… for a reason. That reason is – to help you DROP SOME WEIGHT and LOOK and FEEL BETTER than you have in a long, long time.
