Burn Hundreds of Extra Calories

New research at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst has found that standing burns significantly more calories than sitting. And it’s even better, because it doesn’t come with the normal increase in appetite that exercise usually does. The study hasn’t been published yet, but their experiment where they asked a volunteer group of people to spend one day sitting (even using a wheelchair to go to the bathroom) and the next day standing showed that the group burned hundreds of more calories on the standing day.

Obviously it’s not the only thing you should be doing, but it’s a pretty simple way to boost your calorie burn throughout the day!
