Sitting Too Much Increases Fat Around Organs

Investigators say sitting too much can lead to increased fat surrounding organs, which can place individuals at a greater risk for chronic illness. Using MRI, researchers found that the more time participants spent sitting during the day, the more visceral and abdominal fat they possessed. The research team also notes that this relationship was strongest among those who failed to meet the public health recommendation of 150 minutes of moderate-intensity physical activity per week. This suggests that regular exercise may offer some protection against the negative effects associated with prolonged sedentary activity. (Obesity, January 2017)

An even better approach is integrating small physical activity breaks throughout your day.

One of my personal favorites is doing 10 reps of an exercise on the 10th minute of every hour. You can easily rack up 100 reps of squats in a single work day! Belly fat, be gone!

Try it!

Let me know how it goes!
