You may be surprised to learn that sitting can be just as bad for you as smoking and that your desk job may be making you unhealthy... You may be surprise to learn that SITTING can be just as damaging to your health as ""smoking"" and can even sabotage your fat loss efforts. Watch my recent interview below with my good friend and 12 Week Super Shred Co-Author, Ari Whitten Your Desk Job is Slowly Killing You and May be making You Fat. Sitting is dangerous. To be blunt: You need to get off your butt, stand up, and MOVE! Not just 3 or 4 times a week at the gym. Not just 45 minutes a day. Not just an hour a day. If you want optimal health, amazing energy levels, a fast metabolism, and a lean body, you need to be moving (gently) throughout the day, every day! You know how most people out there are constantly fixated on their workout routine--wondering whether they should be doing p90x, or Crossfit, or weight training, or intervals, or cardio or whatever. And virtually all of these people fail to realize that there is actually an EVEN MORE IMPORTANT factor than their workout routine that they've given almost ZERO thought to--the amount of gentle movement they're doing throughout the day. Yes, it is a bigger factor in how fat or lean you are than your workout routine is. No joke. And we have the science to back this up. Look, most people just think that if they eat the proper diet and exercise that they will lose weight and be healthy. Diet and exercise. Diet and exercise. If you want to lose weight, everyone just says ""it's all diet and exercise... just eat less and exercise more."" But it really is NOT THAT SIMPLE! What is NEAT? Non-exercise movement. (a.k.a. Non-exercise activity thermogenesis, or NEAT). It’s basically all the movement of daily living that you do throughout the day just living your life—washing the car, running errands, climbing the stairs, walking down the street to the store, and even things like chewing gum, fidgeting and tapping your feet throughout the day. It is NOT the stuff you do when you go to the gym like do aerobics classes, ride the spin bike, or lift weights. It’s NON-EXERCISE activity. Dr. James Levine—perhaps the world’s foremost authority on NEAT—says that we now have a major energy crisis occurring. A human energy crisis. What is this crisis all about? Well I’ll let him explain:“As a doctor who has spent more than twenty years studying human movement, obesity, and metabolism, I can tell you that the way we are living and the way many of us are going about weight loss is absolutely, fundamentally wrong. Fifty years ago, there were no gyms; people rarely ‘exercised,’ and very few people struggled with being overweight. We managed our weight effortlessly because we moved. Now we struggle with it daily because we are desk sentenced.” NEAT is actually significantly MORE important than our exercise habits when it comes to fat loss, yet virtually no one is talking about it. And it’s not just of critical importance when it comes to fat loss, but also for health, vitality, avoiding diabetes and many other chronic diseases, enhancing energy levels, speeding up our metabolism, and even dramatically prolonging our life. Prolonged sitting can shorten your lifespan One study, published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine, which included nearly 12,000 Australian adults, concluded that each hour spent watching television after the age of 25 reduces your life expectancy by nearly 22 minutes. (1) To give you a reference for comparison of something you know is really bad for you, when the authors compared that reduction to smoking, they found that each cigarette reduces your life expectancy only by about 11 minutes.
