Let's Stand For Losing WeightA Recent Study Shows That One Of The Greatest Weight Loss Secrets May Be As Simple As Standing
Researchers at Sweden's University of Gothenburg believe "sitting is the new smoking." Quite simply "sitting is killing you."
Over 20 years ago, scientists discovered the hormone leptin that helps to regulate body fat.
“The mechanism that we have now identified regulates body fat mass independently of leptin, and it is possible that leptin combined with activation of the internal body scales can become an effective treatment for obesity," said Professor Claes Ohlsson at Gothenburg University, about getting up off your seat and on to your feet.
“We believe that the internal body scales give an inaccurately low measure when you sit down. As a result you eat more and gain weight,” says Ohlsson.
In other words, sitting could be killing you as it distorts the body's picture of how much it really weighs, tricking the systems that regulate body fat.
