Tables to stand still will not lose weight

Special tables for standing work are not at all more healthy. Scientists have found that using such tables people just burn at 9 calories per hour more compared to sedentary counterparts.

Have long tables for standing work supports as means of prevention of negative consequences of a sedentary lifestyle. It is alleged that sitting for long hours in the offices of the people harm their own health, and if you allow them to sit and stand at the table in front of a working computer, in this case, they will burn more calories, and thereby to protect health from the negative effects of low mobility. However, scientific research has shown that such tables do not differ from more traditional. And they will not help people who wish to lose weight.

During observations it was found that office workers who prefer tables for standing work, losing an hour is only 9 more calories than those who sit. And this is the equivalent of a small piece of bread. It is believed that standing at the table, people moving more and more, and then they need to burn calories and lose weight. But scientists from Britain and the United States assessed the metabolic activity of 46 healthy men and women who sat at the table, standing and even lying on the couch. This allowed completely to determine exactly how many calories you burn every person.

Magicforum recalls that the average daily caloric need for the average person ranges between 2 000 for women and 2,500 for men. They are calculated from the amount of energy that our body needs to perform basic functions like movement and work. If a person spends a lot of time to physical exercise, he needs more calories, as they need a lot of moving children and young people. If a person consumes more calories than he burns, he’s on the mend. Eating fewer calories leads to the disappearance of excess weight. For example, in the “big Mac” from McDonald’s 508 calories in banana 95, and Apple is about 50. (READ MORE)
